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.
Grab a group of friends and meet in Palatine for this neighborhood bar crawl. These three bars are only minutes from the train and each other. They all have a relaxed, casual atmosphere where everyone feels welcome.
In the month of March everyone is a little Irish. Here is a listing of festivals and parades that will allow you to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all weekend long. So don your green and get ready to party! We will keep you posted as more details are finalized for these events.
