St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish tradition in honor of their patron saint, and is celebrated around the world. Certainly you might have already been into various festivities around town such as parades and concerts before starting off the night/day with the bar crawl so we will never discount the fact that you’ve spent the day so much prior to this.
Preparation Is Key
Frequent party-goers should know that bar crawls are not your ordinary moment at the bar. Because it involves visiting a series of bars in your location, preparation is key. Before heading to the venue, make 100 percent sure that you have eaten a good carb-induced meal because attending one with an empty stomach is definitely not a good idea. Furthermore, stay hydrated throughout the entire event.

Stay Slow And Steady

Think again because despite this, still several others leave the party earlier because they have gotten way too drunk.
First is to pace yourself. The first bar you have visited for the night is not the only venue that you’ll be dropping by. You will be surprised that there are more drinks coming your way. Second, these events are not the right places to mix your beers with liquors. Instead, mix them with non-alcoholic liquids should you need to, such as sodas and fruit juices. Lastly, do not cross over the reef to target those bottles on the top shelves. Top secret: 1 shot, 2 shot, 3 shot, floor.
Watch Over Each Other
The fun of St. Patrick's Day Bar Crawls lies on the fact that you party with friends – lots of them. Moving around and conversing with a diversity of people are also great tactics not to commit too much with the beverages. At the same time, make sure that you are still watching over your friends throughout the night. This will help you come to the rescue when they have gone a little tipsy or they need company to the washroom.
Share About It
