CitySwarm is hosting an early, but properly Irish pub crawl on Thursday, March 15th. Forget the green-dyed miller light and drunkards decked in awkward eyeware, this ethnically-correct pub crawl begins at 6:30 at at Brehon’s Pub with an Irish buffet spread: spinach artichoke dip, corned beef sandwiches, cabbage, pickles and salad plus, a Killians Red to wash it down. Then you’ll hop on a trolley, clinking more Killians all the way to the Fifth Province, an authentic Irish Pub located in the Irish American Heritage Center. There, you’ll hear a jam session hosted by the Irish Music School of Chicago, more Killians, you get the idea. The night carries on with pipebands, Killians, Irish desserts, more Killians… Check out the whole schedule here.

Regular tickets cost $52 and are on sale now, but Gapers Block is giving away two free tickets to one lucky reader.
