Come out and celebrate St Paddy’s Day with your friends and neighbors! Join in the fun at the first, (annual we hope,) St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl for Habitat for Humanity. This Pub Crawl for a Cause is being held on Saturday, March 17 at multiple locations in Paducah Midtown and Downtown.
From 12 – 5:30 pm you’ll be able to ride the event trolley from Midtown to more establishments Downtown, and back again. Sponsored by Wagner Wine & Spirits, and participating restaurants/bars, the proceeds raised will help Paducah-McCracken Habitat for Humanity build a new home.
Organizers were looking for a one-of-a-kind, signature event and realized that there was very little going on in Paducah for St. Patrick’s Day. The weather is getting warmer, and folks are wanting to get out. Plus, this event promotes safety and not drinking and driving.
The wristband will grant you access to unlimited trolley rides to and from designated Crawl stops. The trolley will run continuously on a 30-minute loop during the event. The stops will be located close to participating sponsors from Midtown to Downtown Paducah. Wristband holders may visit stops in any order they choose.
Each wristband will have two drink tabs that can be pulled off and redeemed at any establishment participating in the Crawl for items on their ‘Crawler only’ menu of drink and food. Many of the restaurants and bars will offer specials available to wristband holders only. (Please note that participating sponsor locations will set their own prices.)
Some participating locations will have live music, St. Patrick’s Day party favors and other fun swag to get you in the holiday spirit. This is going to be a fun afternoon with plenty of vivacious energy for a lively St. Patrick’s Day.
Participating venues include Mellow Mushroom, Max's Brick Oven, Dry Ground Brewery, Shandies, Paducah Beer Werks, Maiden Alley Cinema, The Twinkling Star and more! The complete list of participating sponsors, Crawl Sponsors and Crawler Menu Specials will be distributed at registration by event volunteers, along with the St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl Map showing with trolley, and Crawler Sponsor stops.
Don’t get pinched because you forgot to wear your green. There will also be $20 t-shirts (limited) available for purchase at registration. This is a rain or shine event.
All wristband proceeds go to help fund Habitat for Humanity’s next home build in the spring. You can purchase them here.
Here’s one reason why that wristband is really worth the price. One of the participating venues in this event is Dry Ground Brewing. Dry Ground is known for their unique, specialty-brewed beers. For the Crawl they will be featuring their ’37 Flood IPA, Fresh Plowed Saison, and Preacher Pils for only $3 a glass. These specials are only for those who purchased Pub Crawl wristbands.
Habitat is not a handout. To qualify, partner families must pay a down payment, participate in homeowner education classes, and work at least 250 hours of sweat equity. Then they re-pay a 20 year, no interest mortgage, which goes back into their building program to build more homes.
Even though they're affiliated with the International Habitat organization, the local chapter must raise all their money locally. They use efficient business practices to coordinate volunteer labor with donations of money and materials. Their goal is to eliminate poverty housing in Paducah-McCracken County.
Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.
As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to include conversion to a particular faith.
