15 March 2014, Charlotte, NC – NAHBS Charlotte is partying it up at the worlds largest pub crawl tonight for a bit of Irish fun as day two of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show moved from the the convention center floor to the pubs for a welcome bit of Irish cheer.

First stop was Mert’s Heart and Soul food on College Street for a plate of deep fried catfish, collard greens and black-eye peas.  Sufficiently satiated and hydrated we moved the party to Connolly’s Irish Pub where nobody seemed to care what our names were; this isn’t Boston after all.  And the bartender didn’t bother with our ID’s because we really do look older than most of the crowd.

The streets and the pubs were overflowing with people of all ages celebrating Patrick’s special day.   But since we have another day of bike show to attend to our evening ended earlier than most partiers’ will.  And we’ll most likely not wake up with a hangover which will be a welcome treat after this morning’s head pounding start.   St. Patty’s day is a perfect backdrop for the special bond the builders and attendees of NAHBS have forged over ten years of handmade bicycle show history and there’s no where we’d rather be than Charlotte.
