Boston Bar Golf
We're sure the last thing you want to think about the Monday after a Saturday St. Patrick's is another bar crawl, but we've discovered something we just have to share with our New England readers. We've known for a while that the Faneuil Hall area was basically vat-grown for pub crawls, and we've even been on a few ourselves. What we didn't know about was the Boston Bar Golf Invitational, a yearly event where a large number of people get together to take the area by storm. We're not talking an intimate stroll with a few friends here - we're talking shock and damage (nearly 200 people had signed up for the crawl when we wrote this story).
Faneuil Hall is renowned as one of the best Bar Golf courses in the world. From its world class Irish pubs to its lively sports bars, each establishment provides unique challenges to a bar golfer. There is no better environment to meet new people or enjoy good times with old friends. Join us this April on a journey that will be talked about for years to come.

Bar Golf is a game where a whole mess of folks get together, often dressed in golfing attire, and perform the old standard of a pub crawl. There's an added layer of vomit-scented fun, however, as each bar is assigned a "par" drink and additional points can be scored as well. Check out the Boston Bar Golf rules.
Pub golf (or Bar golf) is a drinking game. It involves a number of pubs and/or bars, ideally eighteen, comprising the 'course', with each being assigned a 'par' value as is a hole on a golf course. In pub golf, the par for each pub is drinking a certain drink in a particular way. For example, one pub might be assigned as a par one with a straight double vodka and another might be a par four with a pint of cider. In the first case a par 'score' would be recorded by drinking the double vodka in one gulp. In the second case, the pint of cider would have to be drunk in four gulp. Under and over par would be drinking the assigned drink in less or more gulps than the par of the bar allows respectively.Wikipedia
