Water Taxi Service Up and Floating for 2019 Season

While many assume the green Chicago river is in honor of St. Patrick's day, it's actually done to signal "go" for the Chicago Water Taxi service - which also started this past weekend (via NBC):
Chicago’s iconic water taxis will be back in service beginning this weekend, the Wendella company announced this week.

Beginning on Saturday, March 16, the taxis will run seven days a week through the month of December. The taxis will make stops at five different Chicago locations, including Ogilvie/Union in the West Loop, Michigan Avenue, River North, the Riverwalk, and Chinatown.
While most of the stops are not in our neighborhood, there is one in Chinatown for those of you who live towards the south end of the Sloop.

Finally - obviously we're kidding about the river being green.  That has nothing to do with the water taxi's and was likely a coincidence this year :)
