Rich and Bennett’s Pub Crawl began 11 years ago, and since then it has turned into the world’s largest St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl. In 2009, the crawl was featured on the Travel Channel series Extreme Wild Parties. The 2012 crawl will mark the 12th annual event of Rich and Bennett’s Pub Crawl, and they are looking to make it bigger and better than ever. We’ve got what you need to know about this year’s crawl!

Last year, Rich and Bennett’s Pub Crawl brought 8,987 crawlers together in Charlotte, NC. Crawlers are provided a specific itinerary with a list of bars and times to show up at each one. Each pub will have specific beer and liquor specials. The goal of every participant is to stop in as many bars as he or she possibly can. Drinking at each one is optional! This year the pub crawl will be raising money to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!
