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. Triple shippable socialization with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a three-day pass to the St. Patty's Day Pub Crawl (a $34.95 value). Choose the most convenient crawl time, or drop by all three dates:
- Happy Hour Crawl on Friday, March 11, between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m.
- Luck of the Irish Pub Crawl on Saturday, March 12, between 11 a.m. and 3 a.m.
- St. Patrick’s Day After Parade Pub Crawl on Thursday, March 17 between 11 a.m. and 1 a.m.
Join the green mass of the 2011 St. Patty’s Day Pub Crawl as it flows through New York City on a quest to topple last year's attendance numbers while tippling discounted drinks. In addition to the pass, your Groupon gets you a 10-ounce 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. 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. Starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, Groupon holders can register exclusively at Village Pourhouse Restaurant Row to meet and mingle with fellow purchasers. Beginning at noon on Saturday, Groupon holders can meet up at SideBAR in Union Square to forge newfound bonds with fellow crawlers who got in on the deal. On day three of your triumphant triad, gather at Chelsea Manor starting at 11 a.m. to draw up game plans. Head in to register and receive your map, or stick around to socialize with like-minded luck-havers.
