How do I get My Pub Crawl Shirt (This is your Ticket to Our Crawl!)
  1. Pick up at a Prepay Event
  2. Order Online and Pick up at a Prepay Event: CLICK HERE
  3. Buy Day Of at Pub Crawl Party Lot (Info Below)

Sizes are limited due to high volume. However, you do not need to wear the shirt – you may get creative and carry, wear as a scarf, etc. Also, we are sold out online but we will have some for sale at check-in.

What is check-in, where is check-in, do I have to go to check-in?

Check-in is where you will receive your event koozie and pick up your t-shirt if you haven’t already done so. Check-in will be held at The Pub Crawl Party Lot located at 219 E 7th Street (across from the 7th street market). It will open on Saturday, March 17 from 12:00-3:00pm, and will include food trucks, bars, and a DJ!  If you already have your t-shirt you may access the lot from 7th street or College street. If you need to pick up your t-shirt you need to enter from the 7th street side.

 

*If you have your shirt already and you can’t get to the crawl until after 3, no worries. Your shirt is your ticket so you’re all set to start your crawl once you arrive*

How do I get my itinerary?

The itineraries will go live on the Rich&Bennett APP (itineraries go live the day before the crawl, March 17th 2018).  The APP will include the list of participating establishments & addresses to these establishments.

 

Also, check social media after 3pm for a picture of our map!

What are your top 4 recommendations to make the most of the event?
  1. Pace yourself – the Pub Crawl is a beautiful journey of Uptown Charlotte, not a race.
    Eat, Drink and Be Merry is a legendary saying for a reason. You’ve got the whole day to experience Rich & Bennett’s Pub Crawl in Uptown Charlotte. Have drinks at the participating bars. Enjoy food at one of the many wonderful restaurants participating in the crawl. Take your time, be responsible, drink lots of water, and first and foremost – Have Fun!
  2. Come with your old friends but be prepared to make new ones. Charlotte is a friendly city. So if you’re coming from out of town, be prepared to be taken in by some of the country’s nicest people! Crawlers travel from as close as down the street to half way across the world to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us!
  3. Wearing the Rich & Bennett 18th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl T-shirt is mandatory. However, as long as it is still in tact, you can be creative. Make the outfit your own, but make sure the t-shirt can be recognized by bouncers, or be prepared to pay a $5 cover at each stop.
  4. Do Not Drive!! Call a sober friend. Call one of the cab companies listed on our itinerary. Call UBER or LYFT, the Designated Driving services that gets you home safely and in style. Bribe a pedicab driver or horse and carriage to take you outside the belt loop.  Or arrange a reservation at one of our participating hotels and WALK over at the end of the night.
