Local Group Organizes St. Paddy's Pub Crawl in September

The proceeds of the pub crawl will go to the Jubilee Center.

You can take the parade out of St. Patrick's Day, but you can't take St. Patrick's Day out of ... September? 

For those who just can't wait until the first weekend of March—when Hoboken celebrates St. Patrick's Day, or what now is called Leprechaun Day—there's going to be another option this year. 

On September 15, Hobokenites can take part in "the halfway to St. Paddy's Day Pub Crawl."

Brendan Drury, together with three friends, has created the group Pintmeisters. Pintmeisters aim to organize social events in and around Hoboken. The proceeds of the events go to charity. 

The proceeds from Paddy's .5 will go toward the Jubilee Center, according to Drury.

Drury said the group chose to celebrate St. Patrick's half birthday, because "it would bring in a large crowd and we can repeat it annually."

Pintmeisters will arrange drink specials from downtown bars, Drury wrote in an email. Check in for the crawl is at Texas Arizona and participants receive a t-shirt and a pint glass koozie that will earn you discounts.

Another great idea Zimmer will try and fend off once again. Bringing people to a town is a wonderful thing, too bad Dawn sees it differently, but says the complete opposite?
