Hoboken’s Guards Hurling Pub Crawl and Auction Saturday April 28 4pm – Starts at Nag’s Head

Here is a pub crawl to help support a cool sport that some may not know about… Hurling. Combine that with a pub crawl and the first joke that comes to your head is which type of hurling? Funny but this group is a nice addition to Hoboken’s cultural diversity and it is actually a great game that requires a high degree of skill.

Guards on Patrol: Hoboken’s Finest (Athletes) Crawling,

to be Auctioned Sat. April 28

Discover Ireland’s national sport – Hurling – enjoy live Irish music,  great drink specials, free food, make new friends and enter to win one of several Irish hurling jerseys at the 2nd Annual Guards on Patrol Pub Crawl & Hurler Auction.

Ladies and gents of all country origins who enjoy having a good time (craic, in Irish) are encouraged to attend this preseason kickoff fundraiser for the Hoboken Guards Hurling Club.

You’re saying you’ve never seen a hurling match? You’re the person this pub crawl was designed for, as hurling matches will be played on the sponsoring pub flat screens. Rumors are swirling around Hoboken that Mile Square City residents Eli Manning and newly arrived Tim Tebow will be in attendance. A spot may exist somewhere on the Guards roster.

Event Time: Saturday, April 28, 4–10 p.m. (unofficial ending time)
Guard Patrol Pub Crawl Destinations:

Cost to attend the event is a $10 bracelet and allows for discounted drink specials (to be announced shortly) and food at Mulligans. A five piece trad session band is included in the evening featuring a bodhran, accordian, banjo, pipes and guitar at three of the four pubs. Attendees can purchase the bracelet at sponsoring bars on the day.

Click here for photos from last years Guard Patrol, which drew 120 people despite pouring rain and gale force wind: http://www.hobokensocialsandbox.com/photos/1420031/#24047551

Sign-up on the corresponding facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/348595608523294/

“We’ll Start the Bidding at… $20”
The featured event of the day will take place in Shannon Lounge when ladies on the crawl will have the chance to bid on their “favorite” team player as part of a Hurler Auction.

On the auction block will be 13 single (meaning…unattached…we’ve had to explain this to people so just making sure we’re  on the same page) hurlers ranging in age from early 22 to 30 somethings…the same amount of men that we put on the field at once representing the black white and red in a New York Gaelic Athletic Association match.

Hurling is a physically demanding sport, so the lads should be moving from pub to pub in quick form. Each auctioned hurler comes with a gift certificate to a local restaurant such as Zylo Restaurant, Onieals of Hoboken and SoHo, The Madison Bar & Grill, Court Street, Carpe Diem, etc. Bidding will start at $20 per hurler. The winning bidder gets the gift certificate, whether or not she wants to use it on a date with the accompanying auctioned hurler is her call!

ATTENTION LADIES! Have a question you would like asked each auctioned hurler when he’s on the block? Post it on our facebook page, or email it with any other question to: hobokenhurling@gmail.com

The Guards are fresh off their first tournament competition of the year, the annual Rockland 7s Tournament in Orangeburg, N.Y. Hoboken were victorious in all five matches against  Philadelphia (Pa), Washington D.C., Rockland (NY), Allentown (Pa.), knocking off Washington (D.C.) to capture the trophy with a 5-0 record on the day!

The Guards, seeking both male and female new recruits, have begun training for the 2012 NYGAA Junior Hurling Championship season, which runs May through August in Manhattan College. Check hobokenhurling.com for the 2012 season schedule, which will be released shortly.

See you Saturday!

Hoboken Abu!
