Second Annual Devils / St. Patrick's Day Newark Bar Crawl

119 posts in this topic

Oh yes, it's about that time. Once again we will be touring some of Newark's finest drinking establishments in celebration of St. Patrick's Day before watching our boys take down the defending Stanley Cup champs.

Last year's crawl was such a wild success and the bars were all so great (and great to us) that there really is no reason to change it up. The crawl will go down, just like last year, in this order:

1. Kilkenny Ale House

2. Nick's In Newark

3. McGovern's Tavern

4. 60 Park Grill

5. The Spot Lounge

6. Scully's Publick House

7. Brick City Bar & Grill

Come one, come all. The more the merrier. A meeting time and place will be set once gameday draws nearer.

Here is the map (I really hope that link works). There is also a Facebook page for it, but I can't link to it now (FB is blocked here at work).

When I get home, I'll update with the FB link and some photos from last year.

Thanx for the info bro I plan on hitting #1 and#5 very soon. As for Brickcity I'm not willing to pay the 25$ cover charge for the Haiti relief,not because i dont want to, It's just not feasable.

So here would be my birthday week schedule:

- 17th: Get WASTED on the Bar Crawl

- 19th: Get SMASHED for my birthday

- 20th: Get HAMMERED at the game vs. the Blues (my Platinum Lounge game which means open bar)

A week to never remember :cheers:

Hmm.. 2 days before my 21st birthday.. Do you think they will let it slide if I get ID'ed? I'm thinking I'm gonna go for it and hope for the best..

That's a damn fine week you have ahead of you!

Same here. When and where is everyone meeting up?

We'll pin that down when gameday gets closer, but I think last year we ended up meeting at Newark Penn around 1 or 2 p.m. We'll probably end up doing something similar this year too.

Also, in case anyone was wondering, last year we never made it past The Spot. Scully's was completely jammed up and we figured it wasn't even worth it to test the BCB&G crowd. This year the crowd will probably be more reasonable since, you know, Marty won't be breaking some silly record this time around. :evil:

I only hope to be as lucky as you when I turn 21, Colin (meaning the only way that'd happen is SCF game 7 at the Rock :P )

i dunno how strict newark area bars are about IDing, but they could get into a ton of trouble if they provide alcohol to underage patrons. if they ID you and you say "but my birthday is in two days!" they probably won't give a sh!t. why risk trouble for a favor to someone they don't even know?

you can still try it of course, but don't be surprised if you don't get very far.

From my fuzzy memory, I don't think any of the places we hit last year checked IDs. But RD's right, they could get in a ton of trouble if they got caught.

Colin, you were able to bar hop with us on Opening Day without incident, right? IIRC, we did a shot of Jack at Stadium Bar.

I've been getting served in Newark all season long.. And yes, DiG I owe you a shot for the one you bought me ;)

Well if you're still in the area I'll buy you a b-day drink when you turn 21 :cheers:

Very true, but not only will they have tons of people trying to buy drinks all afternoon (making it tedious to ID everyone) but they seem to prefer the money.. I'll take my chances

Don't want to sound like the old man party pooper here, but RD is right...heaven forbid something happens and you get into an accident, hurt someone, hurt yourself, whatever...any one of those establishments could lose their liquor license and a hell of a lot more.

I won't lie...when I was 20 going on 21 I would've hoped that they might look the other way too...I actually had a fake ID at 16, though I only used it four times. But with all that could potentially go wrong if they serve someone that's underage, they're out of their minds if they don't card every single person that walks into their establishments.

i'm just speaking from (partial) experience. i haven't been a bartender, but i have worked at a liquor store and we were very strict about IDing. we're located in a college town too (madison) so we had a ton of kids coming in with any excuse under the sun. ESPECIALLY when it was a big drinking holiday, we'd have to be super strict about IDing everyone who appeared under 30.

anyway, yeah, there's no harm in taking your chances of course (unless you get cited by a cop -- they won't care if you're two days or two minutes from 21, they'll tag you for underage drinking either way), but just don't get your hopes up. if you've been to these places before and they didn't ID, good for you haha. just be careful.

Yeah, I worked at a liquor store too, full-time when I was 19 for the summer, then part-time when school started up in the fall. The worst thing about it was some of my friends thought I could then sell them booze...what they didn't understand was that I was always on camera and in sight of my boss, who obviously would've freaked if I'd sold my pals alcohol. Same thing, in that I had to card anyone who looked like they might not be 21, which was weird considering I was underage myself.

Yeah I definitely will be cautious.. No point in getting a violation 2 days from being 21.. I'll just have to see how it is the day of

Eric, where the hell have you been? haha.. you're starting to sound like you're a parent or something :noclue::P

We're already up to 21 confirmed crawlers according to the FB page, and we still have practically two months to go.

Oh yeah, and it looks like my gang will be in 215 for the game. Same section we were in for St. Pat's last year, coincidentally.

It appears that somebody canceled that facebook event. I'm sure that will have no bearing on the actual bar crawl, though it would have been nice to see some of the faces before starting.

Oh jeez, I totally forgot that page even existed. Yeah, my buddy created a FB page for the crawl way back in October and that's the one that got deleted. There's a new one, I'll post the link when I get home.

I may try and catch up with you all at the last stop for a pint and some grub, but I'll have my 8 year old in tow so I'm not crawling :)
