St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated worldwide with parades, festivals and parties. Historically, the 17th of March was an official Christian feast day, dating back to the 17th century, that observed the traditional death date of Saint Patrick in Ireland. While the celebrations were certainly a lot different than they are today, the wearing of green attire, public festivals and copious amounts of eating and drinking were commonplace. Modern day celebrations still involve wearing green, parades and festivals, but it has also become a great day to lose your inhibitions, drink large amounts of Guinness and Jameson and party in the streets.
In San Francisco, there is no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s than by grabbing drinks with over 5000 party people at the Lepracon St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl. The 2-day event will take place on Thursday, March 17 from 6PM to 11PM and Saturday, March 19 from 2PM to 10PM. Over 20 bars in Polk Gulch, Nob Hill, Russian Hill, Cow Hollow and The Marina will be offering drink specials and free cover to pub crawl participants. Check out updated event information at lepraconsf.com or purchase tickets using the links below:
To participate in the Pub Crawl, purchase tickets here and then go to one of the check in locations on the day of the event to grab your pub crawl wristbands and a map of the participating bars and drink specials. Once you are checked in, grab your posse and head to any of the 20+ bars for cheap drinks, DJs, dancing and general St. Patrick’s Day debauchery. For the pub crawl on Saturday, there will also be party bus shuttles with pickup/drop off at a few different locations along the crawl to make it easier to get to your favorite bars. The The event will take place the week after the San Francisco St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The CrawlSF Team has been putting together the best pub crawls in San Francisco since 2003, so be prepared for an amazing time. Due to the large number of people the attend the San Francisco Pub Crawls, the event doesn’t follow a specific schedule. You will just need to head to one of the check-in locations and then you are free to head to any of the bars on the crawl in any order. After you scan your ticket at one of the starting locations, you will receive your event wristband as well as a pub crawl map, which will have a list of all participating bars, drink specials and party bus shuttle stops. Specials will be available at all of the bars for the entire event. There will be photographers and photo opps throughout the pub crawl, so feel free to dress up according to the theme (not required, but everything is more fun when you are wearing a costume)
