For the third consecutive year, Tempe has decided to make official that activity which every college kid will be doing anyway on Saturday, February 26, which is bar hopping. Only, to make it sound less Fat Tuesdays and more Casey Moores, its called pub crawling. Instead of featuring crappy DJs, Jell-O shots, and one dollar you-call-its, the AZBeer.com Tempe Pub Crawl will showcase craft beer samples, merchandise giveaways, and prize drawings to sweeten the growler, so to speak.
So for those shackled by the cumbersome curfews of adulthood, too old and slovenly to join the ranks of the bold, beautiful bar hoppers, heres an opportunity to join those who prefer eloquence to decadence, acumen to specimen, and sipping to chugging. Set aside those Mardi Gras beads, pull that dollar bill from your teeth, and, for four short hours, pretend youre better than that.
The stops Daves Electric Brewpub, Gordon Biersch, Canteen Tequila Bar, and Robbie Foxs Public House are within crawling distance of one another in downtown Tempe.
