2014 was our most successful year yet, with over 1,000 registrants and 1,300 attendees during the St. Patrick’s East End Pub Crawl. Special thanks to all of our hard-working volunteers, businesses, sponsors, and organizational partners for making this event such a spotlight for the East End business district!
Last year, over 1,000 people registered and crawled around the streets of the East End during the 3rd Annual St. Patrick’s East End Pub Crawl. Building upon the wild success of last year’s event, we’ve brought back some key partners, including FOOTMAD (Friends of Old Time Music and Dance) to provide live, local music from some great Celtic bands. PUB CRAWL LATE NIGHT, which includes four venues: Bruno’s, Broadway, The Monkey Barrel, and Lee Street Lounge, is back for its second year, Mi Cocina de Amor has joined the list of pubs to bring it to TEN participating venues, and FREE trolley and shuttle rides provided by KRT and C&H Taxi, respectively, will be offered again, starting at 10 PM! Also, the Shamrock Challenge is back again and we’re giving away $500 worth of gift cards from all the participating pubs for one lucky crawler who can “find” all 10 of our strategically placed shamrocks throughout the evening. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind event and an opportunity to continue the revitalization of Charleston’s oldest and most diverse business district.
Join us from 6 PM to 2 AM on Saturday, March 14 for our 4th Annual East End St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl! Crawl between five East End pubs near the intersection of Washington St., East and Elizabeth St. from 6 PM – 11 PM and four more great pubs at the corner of Leon Sullivan Way and Lee St. from 10 PM – 2 AM and enjoy food and drink specials, live music, the shamrock challenge with a bunch of great prizes, a Pub Crawl T-shirt and drink cozy, and more! This year, we’ve worked with the State of WV and the City of Charleston to fully shut down Washington Street, East from Sydney Ave. to Maxwell Street to ensure a safe and fun crawler experience for everyone! Also this year, you can upgrade your t-shirt to a long sleeve tee ($5 extra) or hoodie ($15 extra)!
Tune into Electric 102.7 starting Wednesday, March 4 during the Coach Kidd in the Morning Show and listen for clues during the Pub Crawl Pint Pursuit to win free tickets and t-shirts to the Pub Crawl! Stay tuned for more information on the Pursuit!
