Update: Tickets for Patchogue’s first-ever Breakfast Crawl are sold out for this Saturday.
There will be no tickets sold the day-of, as was originally planned. The response was so tremendous that the rest of the tickets were all sold out online today, Tuesday, the organizers said.
See below for more about the Breakfast Crawl.
Original story: Google “breakfast crawl” and you will get zero results.
Well, close to it, relatively speaking.
There are actually 3,900 results, but none of those results (we checked every one) are quite like what’s being planned for the morning of April 9 in downtown Patchogue.
That’s the day Patchogue’s first-ever breakfast crawl will be kicking off, starting at 9 a.m.
The breakfast crawl is meant to mimic a bar crawl, except instead of hopping from bar to bar for wine, beer and spirits, these folks will be in search of eggs, pancakes and sausages.
Of course, they’re free to grab a beer or a mimosa too.
The May 15 arts festival will run from noon to 6 p.m. and is being run jointly by the artists at Artspace and the Patchogue Arts Council.

Artist and Artspace resident Dave Rogers said the breakfast crawl idea was hatched while he was chatting with the owner of Fulton’s Gate, James Gilroy, who serves a traditional Irish breakfast on weekends.
“He was like, how about doing something with breakfast?” Rogers said. “So him and I started talking and came up with this. We wanted to do something different than a bar crawl.”
“Patchogue is becoming a breakfast kind of village,” he continued. “A lot of places have already started doing breakfast and others are thinking about joining in. So we thought this is a nice chance for them to try.”
Here’s how it works.
Head to Roast Coffee & Tea Trading Company on East Main Street starting at 9 a.m. on April 9 to get a your special crawling cozy and a coffee cup.
Participants can pay either $20 to sample breakfast items at four restaurants, or $30 for all nine.
