As the old saying goes, one must learn to pub crawl before they can pub walk, and they must learn to pub walk before they can pub run in a 26-mile pub marathon. Put your best foot pubward with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a ticket to the fourth annual Bethesda Fall Bar Tour, presented by Lindy Promotions (up to a $10 value, based on advance tickets and discounts for those bringing canned foods). The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 11, from 1 p.m.–9 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring canned food donations for Manna Food Center. This event is only open to those 21 years of age or older.
A pub crawl is more than just a couple of hours spent drinking alcohol at a couple of bars—it's a complex journey exploring the crucial socio-cultural role that libations have long played in human interaction. Sip on social psychology with discounted drinks (including $2 Coors Lights and $3 Blue Moons) at the crawl's participating bars— Hard Times Café, Steamers, Rí Rá Irish Pub, Wing Hub, Union Jack's, BlackFinn, Saphire Café, and Tommy Joe’s. Discounted food will also be on tap for those looking to keep their livers and their stomachs on good terms with one another. Register at Caddies on Cordell between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. on the day of the event, and then get happy on hops as you hop around from pub to bar to moonshiner's backwoods distillery. A souvenir cup is also available for housing your drinks before you evict them down your gullet.
Though small-time bar crawls are often excuses for groups of old friends to get obnoxious in public without meaningful retribution, you don't need a pre-established posse to have a good time. Meet up with friends or forge new bonds with fellow imbibing enthusiasts as you bounce from brew-hut to beer-shack, and bring along some canned goods and make a charitable donation worth drinking to.
The team at Lindy Promotions brings more than just two decades of event-planning experience to the table. In many cases, they also bring the table. The company organizes bar crawls, holiday parties, and other events in East Coast cities such as New York, DC, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta. Their marquee events, which include the Nightmare on M Street, the Irish Stroll, and the Lindy 500 Limo Scavenger Hunt, have drawn thousands of partiers—enough to do the Electric Slide. Even better, the company gives back to the community as evidenced by the more than one million pounds of canned food they've donated and the thousands of dollars they've raised for non-profit organizations.
