Rich & Bennett’s 12th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl
ELEVEN years ago a pub crawl was created to rival all pub crawls. As a small group of motivated and gregarious crawlers, we set out to conquer 7 bars in 7 hours and claimed to have 1 mission. Not sure whether or not we accomplished that mission, we crawled again the following year and have continued the tradition every year since. Thanks to your support the crawl has grown in numbers, recognition, and fame every year! In fact, just three years ago the Travel Channel featured the crawl on their series Extreme Wild Parties! This year we look to kick it up a notch for the 12th year, and this time the mission is to once again stake claim to the title WORLD LARGEST PUB CRAWL!!! Access to over 20 different Uptown Charlotte bars.
