St. Patrick’s Day is more than drinking copious amounts of beer and shamrock shakes with fellow rowdy hooligans; it’s three days of that. With today’s deal, $15 gets you a three-day pass to St. Patty’s “Luck of the Irish” Pub Crawl, a $40 value. Your Groupon gets you a 10 oz. cup for $1 draft beers, a map of the crawl, and a bracelet that signifies your allegiance to the group, securing drink specials and protecting against leprechauns with insatiable cravings for rutabagas and high-fives. Choose the most convenient crawl time or drop by all three dates:
- Happy Hour Crawl: Friday, March 12, 5 p.m.–11 p.m. Register at T.G. Whitney’s.
- World’s Biggest Pub Crawl: Saturday, March 13, 11 a.m.–4 a.m. For a special Groupon meet-up, register at sideBAR at noon.
- St. Patrick’s Day After Parade Pub Crawl: Wednesday, March 17, noon–2 a.m. Register at The Yard.
Last year more than 5,000 participants descended upon nearly 100 pubs from the East Village to the Upper East Side, which was good enough to set a Guinness World Record, though a snafu in the rules prevented official recognition. Join the green mass as it flows through nearly 5 miles of New York City on a quest to topple last year’s attendance numbers while tippling discounted drinks. Specials vary by bar location, but as a guideline, they include $1 draft beers (10 oz.), $2 bottled beers, $3 house drinks, and $4 Jameson shots. Select venues will also offer food discounts, pool, darts, beer pong, and more.
Though small-time bar crawls are often excuses for groups of old friends to get obnoxious in public without meaningful retribution, you don’t need a pre-established posse to have a good time. Beginning at noon on Saturday and running all day, Groupon holders can meet up at sideBAR in Union Square to forge newfound bonds with fellow crawlers who got in on the deal. Head in to register and receive your map, or stick around to socialize with fellow Groupon holders and Groupon staffers. There will be goody giveaways and an exclusive $3 green Groupon shot containing a potent mix of discounts, wits, and fermented eight-leaf clovers (Apple Pucker, vodka, and pineapple).
