Our early afternoon tour included stops at Slugger’s, Papa George’s, Docksider, the Crooked I and the Plymouth.   All of these places had a nice turnout thanks to the nice weather.  Can you believe it’s 64 degrees in downtown Erie?!  We took plenty of photos so make sure you check our gallery.  Click here and check them out!

We’re headed back out soon.  We’re going to try to make it to Sugar Ray’s, Vermont Tavern and Coconut Joe’s.  Hope to see you there!

We began our late morning venture at Sullivan’s. The place was packed with lucky leprechauns! We said our hellos, handed out our beads and stickers, snapped some photos and headed to Scully’s. Next on our tour were Sherlock’s, Park Place, Boardwalk and then the Plymouth. The crowds were gett’n roudy!

Now we’re back in the office refueling for a busy afternoon. By the way, have you had a chance to step outside and catch some sunshine? What a fantastic day to be out on the streets. Ditch the computer and head Downtown with us asap! We’ve listed several of the local bar specials here (scroll to the bottom of the page). Can’t get away? Check back often for updated photos and video!

We started our celebration early this morning with a traditional Irish breakfast at Molly Brannigans shared with many eager Irish (or wanna-be-Irish) folk. From there we ventured to Cellblock, Calamari’s and BrewErie, all before 9 am! We’re now back at the office uploading photos to share as you journey with us to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Erie!

Follow us around town as we pinpoint each location we hit on our live map. Check out our photos throughout the day!

So far, the team has been to four events ( St. Patrick’s Day Parade, St. Patrick’s Day downtown, Jerry Uht for the home opener for the SeaWolves, and the Presque Isle time trials for cycling. So far, its been a lot of fun.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade was rainy, cold, but an adventure.  GoErie.com and the Erie Times-News were proud to be apart of this event and enjoyed giving out newspapers and candy for free. Check out our parade photos of the event!

St. Patrick’s Day was probably one of the longest days of work.  Jeff, Ben, and I  were out and about all over the local bars in celebration.  Jeff, and I started around 7:00 a.m. with brunch and went non-stop until a little past 5:00 p.m.  Ben joined us around 9:00 a.m. and joined in our adventure.  I believe we visited over 13 bars and captured the celebration in all its glory.  Our photo gallery was a huge hit with 100,000 views by days end, and over 80,000 the day after.

Next stop was the Erie SeaWolves home opener.  Thanks to John Frey from the ballpark, we were able to capture the great atmosphere America’s Pastime has to offer.  It was a packed house and you couldn’t ask for better weather.  Word has it that it was the best showing for an opening night since the ‘Wolves entered in the “AA” classification.  You can not have a SeaWolves game without having a kid’s stampede in the 7th inning stretch…and yes, we have video and photos of this.

Our latest stop was at the Presque Isle Time Trials for cycling.  Although rainy, it was still a great event to capture.  Looking in our gallery, you’ll see one of the coolest home-made bikes ever.
