This Train Crawl would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. On this Bar Crawl you will hit 3 bars in 3 towns, all within 3 train stops. We included 2 Irish bars and one bar to get lucky in. Start this Crawl at Mr. D’s at Arlington Park where they feature Off Track Betting and you might get lucky enough to pay for the rest of your night.
