The pub crawl evolved from several other bar-visiting endeavors, including the pub bobsled run, the 26-mile pub marathon, and the climb to reach the six pubs on Mount Everest’s summit. Embark on a pub crawl without having to physically train for months with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a two-hour pub crawl with Nashville Pedal Tavern (a $30 value), which starts at Dan McGuinness Irish Pub in Music Row.
Featured on NewsChannel5 for its conspicuously old-fashioned appearance, Nashville Pedal Tavern takes pub crawlers on its 16-seat bicycle-powered trolley, which allows them to drink as they pedal. With this deal, you’ll be a part of a two-hour foot-powered stroll along an adult-beverage-populated route. With speeds of about 5 mph, the pedal tavern goes slightly faster than a normal pub crawl. Ample snack storage space allows you to load up on pork rinds between stops, and bumpin’ iPod speakers pump up the jam for you and nearby dancing Thomas Jefferson impersonators. Crawlers can continue whetting their whistles at one of several establishments along the mobile pub’s route, including Whiskey Kitchen and Tootsies Orchid Lounge, ideal stops for crawlers wanting to stretch their legs and having another brewsky.
