  • (1888PressRelease) April 01, 2018 - It has been the “Best year yet” for Social Scene as it hosted a series of whiskey tasting events and bar crawls in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on March 16th and 17th. Different venues, bars, and brands came together to fulfill such an enjoyable experience for the guests coming from different cities across the country.

    The 2018 St. Pat’s Bar Crawls were held in Chicago, Indianapolis, and Minneapolis, while the 2018 St. Pat’s Whiskey Festival was held in St. Louis. It was a two-day affair which started on the eve of the Irish holiday, with another whiskey tasting event in Denver and a Fake Pats Trolley Bar Crawl in Kansas CIty.

    “St. Patrick’s Day this year presented opportunities to start new events, as well as improve on previous concepts,” Social Scene president and co-founder William Holdeman said. “Through teamwork, we were more prepared and had better communication with all participating parties, feeling this was our best year yet.”

    Whiskey Tastings
    Denver kicked off St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with a whiskey tasting held at The Ginn Mill. More than 10 brands participated to educate the attendees with regards to their products coming in different flavors. These brands included Art of the Spirits, Rocker Spirits, Spirit Hound Distillers, Dancing Pines Distillery, Quiet Man Irish Whiskey, State 38, Mad March Hare, and more.

    Another festivity that centered around whiskey was held at Lucas Park Grille in St. Louis. The loft-style dining room was transformed into a place that welcomed whiskey enthusiasts to try out the brands that Social Scene lined up for them. Some of the participating brands during the whiskey festival included New Holland Distillery, Hella Cocktail Co., R. Griesedieck Distilling, Quiet Man Irish Whiskey, Koval, and Stumpy’s Spirits Distillery.

    Bar Crawls
    One of the first events in Social Scene’s St. Patrick’s Day series happened in Kansas City, a region where many of its locals trace back roots from the Irish culture. During the 2018 Kansas City Fake Pats Trolley Bar Crawl, the guests hopped from one bar to the next, letting them try each of these venues’ offerings and drink specials.

    Chicago, which comes as one of the company’s largest markets, also played host to a bar crawl that happened across various locations such as Flat Iron, Nick’s Beer Garden, Debonair Social Club, and The Tankard.

    “We are grateful for the communities that welcomed us to show them an enjoyable and safe experience on this day as well as the venues who work with us to provide such an enjoyable experience to the communities,” Holdeman added. “Over 100 staff and partners came together to make this holiday a success and we are appreciative of each one.”
