WE ASKED everyone's favorite anonymous local pundit, the dude (dudette?) behind The Stone Stairs of Death Facebook page, to help put together our first annual St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt—about the real Savannah St. Patrick's Day celebration, as it's really celebrated, in the, uh, unique style and verbiage of The Stone Stairs of Death.

Take this issue with you on the big day and see who can get the most points! Low score buys the first round of Jameson shots at Chuck's after y'all finish.

Post your selfies with the hashtag #StoneStairsScavengerHunt and be eligible to win the Grand Prize, never before offered: Your very own FREE LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTION to Connect Savannah!*

Have a Cocktail at Pinkie Masters (2 Points Per Drink)

I'll be there at, like, 8:30 in the shit show morning... you should TRY and join me.


Uncomfortably Awkward Kissing of Soldiers Marching in the Parade (10 Points)

Be on the lookout for WAY TOO YOUNG girls with heavy lipstick kissing soldiers.

As well as my awesome-as-f*** gay friends, trying to sneak one in!

My buddy Brandon got yanked away by the police for his attempt a couple of years ago—it was F***ING HILARIOUS!


Crying Drunk Girls (15 Points Per Girl)

One of my all-time favorites. Hashtag my ass EVERY SINGLE TIME you see one. PLEASE!!!


Drunk Girl Walking With Her Shoes in Her Hands (20 Points, 25 Pts If Also Crying)

Pretty f***ing gross, in itself, but they sometimes have their male friends carry them over their shoulder... you know, because of that ridiculous "I Got River Faced on Shit Street" thing.


Tourist Beatdown Location on River Street (25 Points, 35 Pts for Reenactment)

click to enlarge scavenger_hut-tourists_beatdown.jpg

Do you remember those two tourists that shit-talked their OWN WAY into an epic River Street ass beating and then, according to police, LIED about the FACT that they brought on themselves?

Well, you should stop by and take a selfie where the pummeling of ass occurred. The address is 1 West River Street, aka, RIGHT NEXT TO THE SAVANNAH F***ING VISITOR CENTER!!! Directly behind City Hall, of course...

Let's just hope your selfie doesn't turn out looking like one of these two, as they posted on their own Facebook pages.


Questionable Parenting Techniques (10 Points, 25 Points for Intervening and Not Getting Your Ass Shot )

Be on the lookout for this one—SERIOUSLY. The abandoned stroller... or, those that sit their beer ON said stroller, just to have the beer cobblestone-dribble into the lap of the unwitting child. Happens ALL of the drunktarded time on St. Pat's.


Give a Pedicabber a Bottled Water (25 Points)

click to enlarge scav_hunt-pedicab.jpg

Hell yes, you should. These awesome folks are working their ASSES OFF, often pedaling around, oh, I don't know...1000+ lbs of drunk, sloppy and stupid per ride??!?

Seriously, hook them up with a water... or one of those "ade" things.


Beer at The Legion, Burger at Betty Bombers (5 Pts Per Purchase)

click to enlarge scav_hunt-beer.jpg

They are FINALLY back open! Betty Bombers, too!! HEY-OOOO!!!!

One of the most AWESOME bars in Savannah. Seriously, I am on my way over there now... I mean, I am LITERALLY writing this while on the way.


Ben Carter Sighting (40 Points, 75 Pts For Selfie With Him, 9 Billion Pts For Selfie On His Yacht )

click to enlarge scav_hunt-ben_carter.jpg

Downtown's favorite multi-millionaire/Broughton Street savior has been known to enjoy Savannah's cultural scene. We can't imagine he won't be out and about, or even in the parade itself.


Spotting Someone Urinating and/or Vomiting in the Broughton Street Planters (20 Points Per Biological Function)

click to enlarge received_616655441835.jpeg

I'm not sure if this is a "thing" yet, but I sure hope it becomes one.


Vehicle Getting Towed (5 Points, 10 Pts for Out of Town Tag )

click to enlarge scav_hunt-car_towed.jpg

Nothing says "Welcome to Savannah" so much as getting up close and personal with our fair city's most ruthlessly efficient government department, Parking Services.

This happened to me a few St. Pat's back...AND I CALLED BULLSHIT ON THEM!!!

I was parked overnight on a side street, and there were no signs up to let me know that it was a towing zone. NONE.

I ,of course, got reimbursed for the city's dipshitiotardotry. My buddy Brandon (mentioned earlier) was the the one that got his drunk ass out of bed to come and pick me up to get my car the following day.

Boy, was that a discombobulated shit show of a morning... '09, I think.


Heckling Local Politicians Riding in the Parade (10 Points)

Another one of my all time favorites, especially when said politician pretends to be temporarily deaf. I'm a very active participant in this one, myself—count on Mayor Edna's absurd flower(s) to be a particular highlight.


Waldo Sighting (15 Points, 20 Pts for Selfie With Him)

click to enlarge st_pats_2014_w6a6711.jpg

Waldo, aka James Holmes, is everywhere on St. Patrick's Day. He even photobombed our cover! I bet you'll see him out and about. Tell his ass The Stone Stairs said hi.


Uhhhh LAME Corporate Floats in the Parade That Could Be In Any Parade, Anywhere (5 Points)

They come out to play EVERY F***ING YEAR—let me know how many you see.


Walk Down The Stone Stairs of Death (50 Points, Instant Disqualification If You Faceplant Like an Idiotard )

Yep. Located off of Williamson, between Chuck's and Dub's, I am the grandest gateway down into the River Street shit show. Innumerable faceplants and maimings have been documented here over the years. DON'T BE A CASUALTY OF THE STAIRS!!!

Just ease on down and join me for a Jameson or 20... I'll be the guy doing an ass-ton of shit talking. You should, too.

    Last year, I did a Stone Stairs Scavenger Hunt piece for Connect. This year, I figured I would just go ahead and do a sort of companion piece with some helpful hints from your old pal SSOD. You know... what to avoid, how to NOT behave like a colossal douchebag, etc.
