Get out your “Kiss me, I’m Irish” t-shirts, everyone. It’s almost time for a St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl.

Bar owners on Dickson Street are planning the 9th annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl for Thursday, March 17.

The event will kick off at 5 p.m. at Hog Haus where would-be-crawlers will pick up a “passport,” or list of participating watering holes.

From there, participants will be on their own to visit all of the bars on the list (and no, you don’t have to buy a drink at all of them) before 10 p.m.

Those who complete the crawl by visiting all the businesses on the passport can return to Hog Haus at the end of the night for a commemorative t-shirt.

The entry free for the crawl is $5. Have fun, and be safe.
