You'll do a shotgun start to the bar crawl, much like you see at golf outings. This helps with the choas and makes things a bit more fun. That's not even the best part. Organizers are giving away some gold during the event

There will be a scavenger hung for "Tully's $500 Pot-O-Gold" Yes you read that right, real gold in a pot. (Just no Rainbow, but there will be Lepurchauns!)

You must complete a task at every bar. Complete every task and you qualify for your name to be put in "Tully's Pot-O-Gold." There will be more prizes and giveaways totaling $2,000.

Register at Sensu from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday.
