LINCOLN PARK — It’s always sunny … in Chicago?
Replay Lincoln Park is transforming into Paddy’s Pub from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” for St. Patrick’s Day. The arcade bar, 2833 N. Sheffield Ave., is known for its elaborate pop-ups and they’re going all out to honor Rob McElhenney’s iconic show, according to a news release.
Paddy’s Pub hits Chicago Friday and will be open through March.
Replay will also host a “Flipadelphia” flip cup tournament March 9 and March 16 and the finals March 23, according to the news release. The winner will take home $500 and a belly full of beer.
There are also trivia nights and other events.
The Paddy’s Pub pop-up made its debut at Replay five years ago, and patrons are encouraged to “chill while slinging back brewskis,” according to the news release.
“What better way to celebrate the luck of the Irish than at the worst bar in America,” organizers ask.
Drinks inspired by the show include Kitten Mittens, Wolf Cola, The Pepe Silvia Conspiracy, Fight Milk and What’s Your Spaghetti Policy Here, according to the news release.
The pop-up is free, but tickets for Replay’s St. Paddy’s Day celebrations will be available March 11 and 17. For $20, customers will get two drinks and express entry to the pop-up, according to the news release.
Tickets for Replay’s “Always Sunny” events are available on its website.
The bar is open 5 p.m.-2 a.m. Monday-Thursday, 3 p.m.-2 a.m. Friday, 12 p.m.-3 a.m. Saturday and 12 p.m.-2 a.m. Sunday.
