SUNDAY – McGEARY'S PUB - 4 Clinton Sq - BEAR BRUNCH
We’re heading back to one of our favorite spots for brunch! McGeary’s Irish Pub in downtown Albany is a great venue and very BEAR friendly. Meet with the bears one last time before the weekend wraps up. Hotel check out is 11am so we will meet right after that.
No price change for 2017 - You can request your reservation for studios, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom suites by calling the hotel directly at 518-860-1500. Be sure to book your room in advance to receive the following special BEAR ALBANY rates:
• $95 per night for studios
• $99 per night for one-bedroom suite
• $189 per night for two-bedroom suites
Make sure to mention you're part of the “BEAR ALBANY group” to get the discounted rate and book early as the discounted room block almost always sell out. Once you're out at the bar event, ask one of the BEAR ALBANY folks about the hospitality suite for complimentary refreshments and fun when the bar party is over.
The host hotel no longer offers a shuttle, so BEAR ALBANY recommends cabbing or driving responsibly to and from the event venue. Someday we will have UBER! But for now….
