Grab your green beer and get ready for a weekend packed with corned beef and cabbage. Here are the best spots to find the St. Patrick's Day staple in the Stateline. 

Yes, you may have seen the streets of downtown Rockford, Chicago and Milwaukee packed with green beer drinkers last Saturday, but it's actually not St. Patrick's Day just yet.

The holiday is really this Friday, March 17.

I'm not exactly sure why there were so many parades last weekend already, but hey, I'm only like .07 percent Irish, so it's not my holiday to dictate.
