St. Patty's Pub Crawl

For the past few years, TL's buddies from work and their friends (this year about 200 of them) get together for a giant pub crawl.   With a bunch of firefighters, you're always guaranteed an entertaining day.

The crawl started at 8:00am... but don't worry, we aren't that crazy, we joined in at about 10:30am after getting settled in our Downtown Sacramento hotel room.  I am not sure about the final number of bars we made it to - but we stayed about an hour at each place.

It was a very fun day!  We went strong from the morning hours until late in the evening.  I ended up leaving the party at 5:30 to go meet up with my girlfriends.  We saw Mama Mia (more on that later) :)
The organizers purchased more than 200 shirts!  We were everywhere :)
Me and my sweet guy!
 Some of our guys took control of the stage for a nice little sing-a-long. :)
The singers (our friends) called TL up on stage to join them :)
 This was our team.

There are small teams within the entire crawl group.  One member from each team switches off being the "runner".  The Runner goes to the bar at the first whistle (before everyone else) to buy the next round of drinks.  That way, when the second whistle blows and everyone goes to the next place - the drinks are already waiting for them.

It's always a lot of fun!
Hope you had a wonderful St. Patty's Day!!

Did you go to Streets of London downtown? I miss that place! I've only been to the one downtown once, but I use to go to the one in West Sac a few times a month!
