St. Patrick’s Day on two days? We’re already confused, and we’re not even drunk. Imagine the chaos when the messed-up masses try to figure out why St. Pat’s is taking place on both Saturday and Monday. (It has something to do with church fathers on the Emerald Isle reconciling the national holiday with Holy Week, but really: Trying to figure it out will only slow down the beer drinking.) Point is, plenty of folks will take advantage of this by getting shitfaced on both days, and so it’s no wonder that the 10th Annual St. Patty’s “Luck of the Irish” Pub Crawl is repeating itself. Budweisers are going for a measly buck, with well drinks costing only two. More than 30 bars will be participating, including Proof Bar & Lounge, the Village Pourhouse, Webster Hall, Bar None, Blind Pig, and more.
