'March More Fun' With Guinness St Patrick's 2013 Celebration Pub Crawl

March 16, 2013 was the night that I joined the Guinness pub crawl. It started of at the meeting point of Souled Out in Sri Hartamas:
Despite the heavy downpour mid evening before our pub crawl activity started, Kuah Jenhan lighten the mood with his quips on stage entertaining the crowd who's eagerly anticipating the pub crawl:
 As soon as the rain abated to a trickle and eventually stopped, the 200 lucky Guinness fans gathered to be ready for the rare opportunity of being chauffeured in the exclusive Guinness St. Patrick's bus towards Changkat Bukit Bintang where the streets are transformed into a Guinness St. Patrick's celebration village, decked with the presence of Stilt Walkers, Mime Artists, Jugglers, Irish Dancers, Drumliners, Guinness Bikers and more.
But before we begin our journey, a parade to officiate things off!

From that point on, it was onwards to Changkat Bukit Bintang with outriders helping us to clear off traffic for a smooth ride from Hartamas.

Look at some of the goodies that were given out in the bus aside from the St. Patrick's goodie bag that were given before our trip:
Pub crawl passports were handed out to us to collect stamps by completing certain tasks in order to qualify for lucky draw where the lucky ones went home with Ipad Minis and 24 cans Guinness Pack:
When arrived, Changkat Bukit Bintang was truly teeming with excitement and buzzing with a massive crowd which numbered to more than 5,000 people out of the 15,000 in Klang Valley throughout the 3-days.
As for me, I begun the night at Changkat Bukit Bintang with some Guinness over at Never Mine:
From that point onwards, it was pub after pub after pub to check out the various locations with their buzz, Healy Mac's being one of it:
The final destination of the evening (before heading back to Hartamas) was El Rincon where the lucky draw was held:
Just simply put your entry in one of the fishbowl to participate:
Congrats to the many winners who had luck on their side:
It was indeed a truly fun night filled with the festival mood for me.
