“What we did was check out all the places on the list & got our free goodies & stamps & a drink at most of them first, & then back-tracked to the places we felt best meshed with our group for food and more drinks. There was 1 place that actually told us at the door that they required you to buy a drink before getting a stamp on your way out, which I thought was tacky, so we went inside for a bit, bought nothing & came back out and got our stamp. We won't be going back there again, regardless of how much we may or may not have liked the environment. My fiance and I didn't actually make it back to Bo's for the grand prize drawing, but next year we plan to!”
“Get there early. Not enough time to go to all 11 bars if you don't.”
