Sprinkles for St. Patty's Day; Fundraising Events at Prairie Fire and Feast Bucktown

WEST LOOPJohnny Auer, social media whiz to many of Chicago's top restaurants (and a really good guy), will guest bartend at Prairie Fire March 8 to raise funds for 826CHI. Between 6 and 8, Auer will mix up a version of the Bramble with bourbon, black currant liqueur, lemon and soda over ice. Chef Sarah Stegner will whip up some snacks and, in honor of Fat Tuesday, they'll have beads. Lots of beads. [EaterWire]

GOLD COAST—In honor of St. Patty's, Sprinkles is selling an Irish chocolate cupcake through March 20. It's a Belgian dark chocolate cupcake topped with Bailey's Irish Cream cheese frosting. Drool. [EaterWire]

BUCKTOWN—On March 23, Feast will host a fundraiser for the New Zealand earthquake relief (chef/owner Debbie Sharpe is from Australia, so she's helping out her Kiwi cousins). The two-hour event will feature open bar, food, a wine tasting, silent auction and raffle. Get the $40 tickets at Feast Bucktown or online. [EaterWire]
