Put on your green shirt, your green pants, green underwear, green tie, green hat, green suspenders, and your green basketball sweat bands, and get ready to drink some green drinks, everyone. It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day.
The holiday falls on a Thursday this year, but a bunch of Dickson Street businesses are planning to host a pub crawl the following Saturday, March 19 to commemorate the occasion.
The event will begin at Ryleigh’s, where participants can register for the crawl and pick up their passport between 2 and 9 p.m. on Saturday. From there, crawlers can visit 16 participating watering holes to get their passport stamped and return to Ryleigh’s to trade it in for a commemorative t-shirt designed by Chad Maupin of Big-Bot design.
Participating bars include Kingfish, 21st Amendment, The Piano Bar, Dickson St. Pub, Bugsy’s, and others.
The fee to participate is $20, and that includes the passport and the t-shirt.
According to organizers, the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl is the longest running annual pub crawl on Dickson Street.
