History's largest pub crawl departed from Missouri in 1855, with a Conestoga wagon packed with pioneers hitting up bars all along the Santa Fe Trail before ending the jaunt with cornhole in the Grand Canyon. Hitch an equally jovial jaunt on a smaller scale with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one VIP ticket to a songwriter pub-crawl (a $30 value) departing from Belcourt Taps & Tapas every Thursday at 6:45 p.m. All VIP tickets include special discounts and a souvenir, and guests who arrive at least 30 minutes early will also get snacks and their first draft beer on the house.
Belcourt Taps & Tapas combines simple Southern fare and traditional tapas to keep things unpredictable. After fueling up your tummy-tank at the tapas bar, you’ll be ushered onto the antique trolley, where beer and mixed beverages will be available for purchase as your conveyance clangs and clamors its way to a trio of musical spaces. Along the route, passengers are accompanied by a real-life songwriter who will play onboard between stops, as the one-man-band wagon unloads music lovers at the Commodore Grille and the Listening Room Café where local musicians jam live. Afterward, spirited songsters and songstresses will be whisked back to Belcourt, for a night of continued auditory amusement and never-ending choruses of Who Let the Dogs Out.
Along with transit, tapas, and teetotaler-angering drinks, VIP guests on the songwriter pub-crawl will also get a complimentary barrage of goodies including a free first draft, a tour souvenir, and $10 in Belcourt dollars that can be used on a return visit to the restaurant. Call up your fellow party-loving puppets and hop aboard the friendly trolley for a spirited jaunt through your own Neighborhood of Make-Believe, free from the tyrannical control of cardigan'd cultural icons.
Belcourt Taps celebrates the charms and flavors of the South with regular live music, and gourmet twists on comfort classics. The festivities begin before diners even step through the door. Outside, a sprawling patio surrounds the restaurant, lit up at night with warm sconce lighting and candlelight. There, guests can dig into gourmet stuffed burgers and tacos with pulled pork, shrimp, or chicken. Diners can also share plates of fried green tomatoes and nachos or dive solo into a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.
Inside, regular live music showcases the talents of singers and songwriters who carry on the Nashville sound. Golden yellow walls brighten the room, adding the feel of a southwestern cantina or a southwestern cantina owned by a pyromaniac, and soft overhead lighting creates the ideal atmosphere for a draft beer.
