Today's side deal celebrates this year's batch of graduates in the most unforgettably forgettable way: a night of boozy revelry. For $10, the 21-and-older crowd gets a ticket to the Graduation Bar Crawl (a $20 value) on May 7. That's a trip aboard a double-decker party bus filled with complimentary beer, refreshments, and rowdy college-aged or college-minded revelers.
The tour de farce begins with check-in and plenty of complimentary stomach-coating food offerings at Boardwalk Billy's and Bad Dogs from 7–9 p.m. From there, the boisterous bar crawling ensues at Black Bear Saloon (9:15–10:15 p.m.), Town Tavern (10:30–11:30 p.m.), and The Gin Mill (11:45 p.m.–12:45 a.m.) and finishes with fuzzy memories at Dixie's Tavern (1–2 a.m.). Post-college partyheads on the Graduation Bar Crawl will have an all-access VIP status at the bars, which means no waiting in line and no cover charges. Plus, prizes including Burton snowboards and Corona inflatable party rafts will be given away at every bar.
