Mayor Eric Adams enjoys a Guinness on the St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl in NYC

Eric Adams brings his “Party Mayor” representative to the Big Apple for the return of St. Patty’s Day.

The mayor started celebrating the first COVID-19 Restriction Free St. Patrick’s Day in three years early Thursday, beginning his pub crawl around 9am

That usually night mayor embarked on an early two-stop bar crawl in midtown Manhattan at Connolly’s, where he appeared on “The Jim Kerr Show” on classic rock station Q 104.3.

Then, before entering the Pig N Whistle public house, the professing vegan Adams joked that his name was Eric O’Adams and joked that he had a Guinness “right after” a smoothie.

He posed for photos and drank another Guinness at a bar table with two men in army uniforms.

The celebration comes after Adams last week marched in a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Queenswhere he declared the Big Apple was “back”.

The mayor should resign the St. Patrick’s Day Paradewhich will come into full effect for the first time since 2019.

In March 2020, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which first came to the Big Apple before the country was even founded in 1762, was among the first public gatherings to cancel as the coronavirus spread across the five counties.

Potential more bar-hopping awaits as the mayor promotes New York City’s reopening after the long pandemic shutdowns. Mayor Eric Adams enjoys a Guinness on the St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl in NYC
