26 Feb Things to Do in Riverhead: March of the Leprechauns
You work hard all week, so you deserve to do something extra special on the weekend. Round up a few friends and spend some time in Riverhead, NY where there’s always events and parties! You might remember Santacon of Riverhead back in December, well Santa’s good friend, Paddy the Leprechaun, is hosting his own con, or should we say, “Leprecon.” March of the Leprechauns is one of the best things to do in Riverhead this season
March of the Leprechauns
The pub crawl starts at 1 pm on Saturday, March 7, 2015. The green-themed event will take place right on Main Street in Riverhead. Like Santacon, there’s plenty of vendors participating and proceeds will go to local charities. Here’s what you need to know:
There are over 10 participating vendors, and you’ll be able to check out every one because March of the Leprechaun officials will notify pub crawlers when to head to the next venue. Each venue has great specials for food, beer, wine and spirits.
Crooked Ladder Brewery
Joe’s Garage and Grill
Vines and Hops
Tweeds Restaurant and Buffalo Bar
The Suffolk Theater
Hotel Indigo East End
The Riverhead Diner & Grill

Hotel Indigo East End loves St. Patrick’s Day as much as the next leprechaun, so we’re offering a special room rate to all participating leprechauns. Indigo East End will also provide complementary shuttle service to all venues of March of the Leprechauns. And after your long journey over the rainbow, come back for dinner at our restaurant, Bistro 72! We’re offering $5 draft beers, $6 Long Island wines and $7 Thin Mint Martinis.

How to Purchase a Bracelet for March of the Leprechauns
Bracelets can be purchased at any participating vendor with cash. Credit card purchases can be made at The Suffolk Theater in person or by phone. You can even buy bracelets online.
The event raises money to the East End Emerald Society to fund the Jamesport St. Patrick’s Day Parade. March of the Leprechauns is also raising money for Maureen’s Haven, an outreach program to provide shelter for homeless adults on the East End. You may think leprechauns are only after finding a pot of gold for themselves, but Paddy the Leprechaun wants to give all the deserving people of Riverhead gold and encourages you to do so too!
So, stop on by the March of the Leprechauns for a good ol’ time! Don’t forget to dress the part! Paddy the Leprechaun encourages you to dress like him to help get in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. And when you’re tired of chasing the rainbow, come to Hotel Indigo East End and stay the night!
