St. Patrick's Day Festival & Pub Crawl- SF Style!

Bust out that green early, because we going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Saturday, March 16th with thousands of other crazy Bay Area folks!

Saint Patrick's Day Parade and Festival!

What: Check out the Party Festivities around Civic Center, then march around town in our green garb - tossing drinks, dancing, cheering, being merry & definitely chilling with good peeps!

To Find the Group: Let's meet @3PM right in front of city hall (http://goo.gl/maps/mlW4P)
Twitter Feed: https://twitter.com/SFRandoms

To Find Me: Look for the guy with green, orange & white balloons (Ireland Flag Colors), green mustache/sunglasses, green lucky shirt!
Contact Info: Google Voice Number was emailed to those who RSVP!

After Event: Pub Crawl heading north to Polk Bar Scene, then some dancing/singin/merriness if the group still has energy!

Post to the site or message me for questions!

=================================

Tentative (Suggested) Plan

1.) Irish Festival (Front of City Hall, Polk & McAllister), 3PM til 4:45PM. Note: Feel free to come early to watch the parade, hang out longer at the festival...then meet up with the group after!

Theme: Celebration with the Masses!

Tentative Line-Up (Hop every 45-60 minutes or so)

2.) Rough Tenderloin Journey North - Harringtons Harry Pub (460 Larkin), 800 Larkin (800 Larkin, http://sf.funcheap.com/st-patricks-day-parade-party-free-irish-grub-tenderloin/), Chambers, etc.

Theme: Rough Patch, Divey, Give me free Corned Beef!

3.) Path to Polk Gulch - Edinburgh Castle (950 Geary St, Scottish sure), Fly Bar (1085 Sutter, Gastropub), or other randoms along the way etc.

Theme: It's getting better / The Anticipation

4.) Welcome to Polk Gulch - Lush Lounge (1221 Polk St), McTeagues (1237 Polk), Bigfoot (1750 Polk), Playland (1351 Polk St.), Kozy Kar, Blur, etc.

Theme: Bar Hop Central - Squeeze in where we can!

5.) Grooving Time Red Devil Lounge (1695 Polk, $10), Encore Karaoke (1550 California), Rouge (1500 Broadway, no cover), Mayes Oyster House (1233 Polk) or maybe Bootie (Taxi to 11th & Harrison, SOMA, $15 - Why not?http://bootiemashup.com/sf/ )

Theme: Keep it going, I'm on crack! Kill the buzz or die trying!

=====================================

WHAT WE NEED TO DO:

Meet Up: Start at City Hall Plaza near the main stairs (3PM)! We will leave from there around 4:45PM, heading North thru Tenderloin towards Russian Hill.

But I'm hella lagging: I will regularly post the group's whereabouts throughout the night. Contact info was emailed to those who RSVP'd early!

Bring Stuff: Green Baby!, "Hidden" Drinks, Cash (please), prep for cold night weather, comfortable walking shoes, ID's, hugs, craziness, respect, & lots of energy.

Have Fun: Dance it up if the music is rocking, eat, drink & relax with good people!

Be Nice, Be Respectful, Clean Up & Be Safe!

====================================

PARKING/TRANSPORTATION

Parking: Street parking is a bit tough (& shady) in Civic Center / Tenderloin Area. You can try to park up closer to Polk Gulch / Russian Hill area and then walk down to Civic Center / City Hall.

MUNI/BART: Civic Center MUNI/BART Station!
