Here at Night & Day Global Industries, St. Patrick's Day always brings two things to mind: pub crawls and Lucky Charms cereal. Er, lucky for us, the fifth annual St. Pat's Charity Pub Crawl combines both Irish interests at ten different Soulard-area bars, including Joanie's Pizzeria (2102 Menard Street). But before drinking so much you see orange stars and yellow moons, open up your pink hearts: Proceeds benefit Caring Bridge, an organization that keeps family and friends updated on loved ones' medical conditions via the Internet. And don't forget to bring your lucky purple horseshoes it's going to take more than mere stamina to make it from 11:30 a.m. to last call. Official crawl bracelets are available from crawl committee members at each location for $10; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 314-471-4612 for the official crawl route and additional information. Bonus points for producing vomit identical in color to that weird bluish-brownish-pinkish milk the 'Charms always leave behind.
