St. Patrick's Day parades and special events, such as Áthas playing Irish tunes at the Raue Center, are happening all over the suburbs this weekend. Acclaimed jazz guitarist Larry Carlton performs a special show Saturday at the Montrose Room in Rosemont. It's a murder mystery of very British proportions in "Doomsday Abbey," featuring renditions of Gilbert and Sullivan songs, at Schaumburg's Prairie Center for the Arts.
