Chicago and New York (and, apparently, Savannah, Ga., according to the previous post ) are traditionally ground zero for St. Patrick's Day, but the Pub Crawl at Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas  might make for a cool stand-in. Partyers pick up a free wristband that provides access to free entertainment and some greenback-saving deals. The deal: Start by registering for a wristband at the St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl website. There's free parking (425 Fremont St.)

Natural and supernatural forces go haywire in the male midlife hysteria of "The World's End," starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine and others of the fab and fabled "Hot Fuzz" and "Shaun of the Dead" crews. The comic blast follows five fortyish friends who reunite 20 years after they failed to make it to the World's End, the final pub on their hometown's infamous crawl. Directed by Edgar Wright and co-written with Pegg, the movie begins as a cheeky reflection on boys who grow up, and the ones who don't.

You can go through life like a cool guy hitting a golf ball off a yacht, or you can go through life as a real person. Both have their rewards. Have you seen that Tommy Hilfiger ad of a young, ripped Gatsby hitting the golf ball off the deck? What you don't see is that, in the next instant, a phantom wave sends the golden boy pinwheeling into the drink, where he winds up marrying a mermaid with abandonment issues and living happily never after. Eventually, someone is going to remake the "Incredible Mister Limpet" exactly like that.

They said it was for drinkers with a problem. A running problem, that is. Three-hundred showed up, but that is par for the pub-crawl course. Each year, the Bench Warmer, a Ventura tavern, sponsors a contest that defies political correctness. Or, rather, it puts its arm around and burps in the face of political correctness. The pub crawl is a run--that is the correct part--to six bars--that is the incorrect part. At each, contestants gulp a bottle of brew and run on. And on, ad nauseam.

I'm not sure at what point I realize, on my horseback pub crawl through Australian bushranger country, that (at the age of 40) I've inadvertently managed to go back to summer camp. It might have been that night after dinner when our host, Steve Langley, tells our troop how he and an earlier band of pub crawlers, deeply in their cups, decided to cure a sonorous snorer among them by putting a screaming, squirming baby wild bush pig in his bed.

The great thing about a pub crawl in downtown Fullerton is that the pubs are actually within crawling distance of one another--though most people prefer to walk it. Just keep in mind that at evening's end, somebody has to drive home. EVENING 1 Once a sports bar, Downtown Bar and Grill has been radically spruced up.

Not to get all Seinfeldian on you, but there are two kinds of people: food sharers and food hoarders. Food sharers are those people who, when you eat dinner out, are always loading your plate with samples of their own dish. I don't think I ever had a restaurant meal with my own mother when she didn't scoop a scallop or a piece of veal or whatever it was she ordered onto the side of everybody else's plate. "No, no, no," you'd say, but you know moms. The expectation, of course, is that you reciprocate.

Frappy, funky Hollywood, where locals like us seldom go unless the in-laws are in from Buffalo and want to bop around town in hopes of spotting one of the Gabors, or maybe even that pistol Kelly Ripa. Visitors from B-list cities always seem to prefer the B-list celebs. After 22 years in L.A., the only celebrities I've ever spotted were Ed McMahon and Wesley Snipes - Snipes at a downtown ATM (took forever), McMahon at the Polo Lounge (years ago). Some people are star-struck, others (me)

He would be making a list and checking it twice, with the intention of finding out who's been naughty and nice. But first Santa needed a drink. All the Santas did. On Saturday, several hundred St. Nicks gathered in Hollywood for SantaCon 2011, a Twitter-driven all-day-and-into-the-night bar crawl that took place in more than 200 locations worldwide. PHOTOS: SantaCon 2011 People who signed up weren't told until Friday night where the party would begin. "Are we meeting at the North Pole?"

Weeks of painstaking research produced the following list of holes-in-the-mall, most offering cheap drinks, dim orange lighting, legions of loyal customers and on-site parking.

Halloween is a great night everywhere for grown-ups to go out and party, but Halloween in L.A. ? a town that sells fantasy to the rest of the world ? is something special. There's a gathering out there for just about every taste and alter ego, from zombies to fetish nights. So get yourself a baby sitter and check out this list of bars, clubs and cultural venues opening their doors after dark for cocktails, dancing, masquerading and more. All Hallows Eve Even on a normal night, it's easy to imagine spirits roaming the cavernous, dimly lighted, retro-styled Edison bar. On Halloween, the former power plant welcomes apparitions and club-goers alike with music by the jazz- electronica band Helios Jive and DJ James as well as a variety of stilt walkers, contortionists and dancers.
