BreckInsider’s St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl is coming…

Just like the Breckoween Pub Crawl last October, this event will kick ass. Get your shift covered, text your friends, and block off this day as it will be one to remember.

Featuring a killer selection of the best bars in Breck, food and drink specials all day (including Jameson, naturally), giveaways, swag, and a legendary closing party…this will be the BEST ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARTY ANYWHERE IN THE ROCKIES! Stay tuned for details and follow BreckInsider on Facebook for real-time updates. Tickets go on sale soon.

Want free pub crawl tickets for you and your friends?

We’re putting together a “Pub Crawl Committee” to help promote the event and assist during registration on event day. A few hours of your time before the event and on the event day gets you and your friends comped tickets to the crawl. Email me ASAP if you’re interested in getting involved.
