Ever made a run for it in the name of alcohol? The people behind the Miami chapter of Yelp.com want to see if you can really hang. Every month the Yelpers plan pub and bar crawls, rotating neighborhoods and themes. First up this year was South Miami, with a white T-shirts/black sharpies theme. Then came Hollywood for a Jersey Shore-inspired guido/guidette crawl.

This month's choice? A dive bar dash. But this isn't an average pub crawl. Your mission: Hit as many dive bars on South Beach on Saturday without puking. This time they're going green ... and we're not talking eco-friendly, here. Wear green in honor of good ole' St. Patty's Day, and make your way to Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3559 (650 West Ave.) at 7 pm. For those of you not too familiar with it, it's hidden inside the Floridian condo building. Score drinks for under $4 a pop (with free parking!), then make your way to Dewey's Tavern (852 Alton Rd.) around 8:15.
Somewhere between all of that drinking (they're thinking around 9:30), they'll drag you for an intermission and some comfort food at the Alibi (218 Espanola Way). Don't think it's a coincidence that it's housed inside the dive Lost Weekend. Next after that: the Deuce (222 14th St.) around 10:45 and Ted's Hideaway (124 2nd St.) around midnight. FYI: Most of the bars are cash-only. Visit the Yelp event page here for more details.
On the slate for April? Brickell.
