CONGRATULATIONS TO JAIME MCNURLEN OF HUNTINGTON FOR WINNING THE EAST END PUB POT O’ GOLD AND AMBER YOST OF CHARLESTON FOR WINNING THE XBOX ONE PRIZE PACK PRESENTED BY ELEMENT FEDERAL CREDIT UNION DURING THE 2014 EAST END PUB CRAWL SHAMROCK CHALLENGE!
2014 was our most successful year yet, with over 1,000 registrants and 1,300 attendees during the St. Patrick’s East End Pub Crawl. Special thanks to all of our hard-working volunteers, businesses, sponsors, and organizational partners for making this event such a spotlight for the East End business district!
Last year, almost 700 people registered and crawled around the streets of the East End during the first ever St. Patrick’s East End Pub Crawl. Building upon the wild success of last year’s event, we’ve brought back some key partners, including FOOTMAD (Friends of Old Time Music and Dance) to provide live, local music from some great Celtic bands. We’re also adding the event’s first ever PUB CRAWL LATE NIGHT, which includes four new venues: Bruno’s, Broadway, The Monkey Barrel, and Lee Street Lounge all while adding FREE trolley rides provided by KRT starting at 10 PM! Also, the Shamrock Challenge is back again and we’re giving away a brand new Xbox One set for one lucky crawler who can “find” all 10 of our strategically placed shamrocks throughout the evening. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind event and an opportunity to continue the revitalization of Charleston’s oldest and most diverse business district.

During the crawl, ten (10) strategically placed shamrocks (one at each pub and one extra “wild card”) will be dropped along the route. You must “find” all 10 shamrocks by doing the following: Access to Instagram via your smart phone or device is required. 1. Log on to Instagram (your account must be unlocked) 2. Snap a photo of each found shamrock and upload the image using the hashtag #GetLuckEE. If you “find” all 10 shamrocks, your name will be entered into a drawing for an Xbox One Prize Pack presented by Element Federal Credit Union or the East End Pub Pot O’ Gold, which consists of $450 worth of gift cards from all of the Pub Crawl venues!
Every 30 minutes, a siren will sound and the Pub Crawl Coin Toss will commence. Gather on Elizabeth Street beside Bluegrass Kitchen and wait for the coins to start falling from the sky. During each toss, one specially marked coin will be thrown. The registered crawler that catches the coin will receive a great prize provided by Proud Eagle Distribution and Budweiser.
