Pub Crawling at Murphy’s with Bon Jovi’s Drummer

It’s not every day that you end up in the middle of a pub crawl at Murphy’s in Rumson with Bon Jovi’s drummer — just this past Saturday.

It’s a usual event for the Ancient Order of Hibernians. They get on a bus and pub crawl. Murphy’s is one of their stops at the annual outing.

Some bag piping is done and there’s the usual fun and socializing for everyone.

This year, though, there was a celebrity crawler — Tico Torres.

He was just hanging out and having some fun. He blended right in, until a fellow Hibernian crawler called attention to him. He kept calling him by the wrong name (Tito), but Tico, very politely made the correction and introduced himself and hopped back on the bus with everyone after posing for a group photo (lead photo).

That busload left and another bunch of Hibernians piled in. It was a festive day at Murphy’s.

Take a look. Cheers!

Catching Up With Hibernians at Murphy’s

By Elaine Van Develde

It’s not every day that you wander into a speakeasy in Rumson and end up in a sea of green sweatshirts steeped in bagpipe music and merriment —  not every day … except Saturday.

Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect caught up with a contingent of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division 2 Monmouth as they made their way around towns and into Murphy’s in a pub crawl.

Take a look at our photo collage above for a glimpse into their time spent in the classic Rumson hangout. Just click any of the photos to enlarge and scroll with the arrow to the left or right.
