After being driven out of Ireland by St. Patrick, the serpents found successful work as part-time pipe cleaners and shoelace stunt-doubles. Celebrate herpetological history with today's Groupon to BarCrawls.com's 2011 St. Patty's Bar Crawls. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get two admissions to The Green Mile on Saturday, March 12 from noon–9 p.m. (a $15 value).
- For $10, you get two admissions to Everyone's Irish On St. Patrick's Day on Thursday, March 17 from noon–9 p.m. (a $15 value).
Sporting teeming throngs of emerald-clad revelers and the smiling twinkle of Irish eyes, BarCrawls.com's St. Patrick's Day bar crawls provide festive fuel for rowdy revelers. Begin the jovial journey at either McFadden's or Tavern on Broad, where you will be equipped with swill-ready swag including a 10-ounce refillable cup, a commemorative event T-shirt, and a shillelagh signed by the Pogues before setting out for nine hours of kelly-green carousing. Wet whistles at watering holes including Buckhead Saloon, Tabu Lounge and Sports Bar, and––on Saturday only––Finnegan's Wake, providing plenty of variety to keep bored eyes from winking at passing lampposts.
Though today's Groupon does not include the price of alcohol, participating taverns feature varying drink specials including bargain-priced Bud Light and well drinks. In addition, tipplers may also partake in traditional St. Patrick's Day libations while debating rumors that NBA players might be using performance-enhancing shamrock wishes.
