St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl turns uptown green

On Saturday, March 15, 2014, many Charlotteans and others from the surrounding area came together for the Rich and Bennett’s 14th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl.

Beginning at Dixie’s Tavern on East 7th Street in uptown, this tradition is said to be the largest pub crawl in the world. Over 30 pars take part in the event, including Prohibition, Ri Ra’s, Fitzgerald’s, Suite, Blackfinn and more, that each feature different drink specials. One could buy a special green T-shirt for between $20-30, depending on the day it was purchased, to be used as a “ticket” to have no cover charge for all the bars.

Proceeds from the crawl are donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
