What is check-in, where is check-in, do I have to go to check-in?

Check-in is where you will receive your event koozie and pick up your t-shirt if you haven’t already done so. Check-in will be held at The Pub Crawl Party Lot (300 N. Brevard St.). It will open on Saturday, March 14 from 12:00-3:00pm, and will include food trucks, bars, and a DJ!

*If you have your shirt already and you can’t get to the crawl until after 3, no worries. Your shirt is your ticket so you’re all set to start your crawl once you arrive*

How do I get my itinerary?

The itineraries will go live on the Rich&Bennett APP (itineraries go live the day before the crawl, March 14th, 2020).

**Also, check social media after 3pm for a picture of our map/itinerary!**

What are your top 4 recommendations to make the most of the event?
  1. Pace yourself – the Pub Crawl is a beautiful journey of Uptown Charlotte, not a race.
    Eat, Drink and Be Merry is a legendary saying for a reason. You’ve got the whole day to experience Rich & Bennett’s Pub Crawl in Uptown Charlotte. Have drinks at the participating bars. Enjoy food at one of the many wonderful restaurants participating in the crawl. Take your time, be responsible, drink lots of water, and first and foremost – Have Fun!
  2. Come with your old friends but be prepared to make new ones. Charlotte is a friendly city. So if you’re coming from out of town, be prepared to be taken in by some of the country’s nicest people! Crawlers travel from as close as down the street to half way across the world to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us!
  3. Wearing the Rich & Bennett 19th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl T-shirt is mandatory. However, as long as it is still in tact, you can be creative. Make the outfit your own, but make sure the t-shirt can be recognized by bouncers, or be prepared to pay a $5 cover at each stop.
  4. Do Not Drive!! Call a sober friend. Call one of the cab companies listed on our itinerary. Call UBER or LYFT, the Designated Driving services that gets you home safely and in style. Bribe a pedicab driver or horse and carriage to take you outside the belt loop.  Or arrange a reservation at one of our participating hotels and WALK over at the end of the night.

If you purchased your t-shirt online:

  1. You may pick it up at ANY of the Prepay Events (See Prepay Tab)
