Anti-Valentine'­s Day - Bar crawl

This event is co-hosted with the Boozy Boarders of Astoria.

Yes it's a bit early but let's veto Valentine's Day (or celebrate the fact that we don't have to celebrate it!) by drinking the day/night away in Astoria!

You are encouraged to wear ANY color BUT red as it is an anti-Valentine's Day event and who needs love anyway? ;) Let's get together, hang out, drink and enjoy each other's company! Here's a tentative schedule of the crawl:

6:00 pm - 7:15pm The Strand Smokehouse (you can grab a bite here and some Jeremiah's Weed LOL)
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm Astoria Brewhouse
8:30 pm -10:00 pm Rapture

10:00 pm - Irish Rower

Who's ready to share the love???

In case you have other bar suggestions let us know in the comments below (I heard people are getting tired of Dominies  and Sangrias)...

    Hey guys new to the group and this will be my first event looking for a good time and meeting some great new people see ya there.

    February 9, 2013

  • Edina

    The crawl is on!
    We will meet at The Strand Smokehouse at 6:00 pm today! If you are new to the group or you don’t see anyone familiar, ask the hostesses where the Newbies are seating. If this is your first time with us , I encourage you to introduce yourself to someone in the group so you will not be left behind when the group starts to crawl… We are 70+ and the boozy boarders are coming with us too. It will be almost impossible to move as one today. You should know the bar line up, so to find us at any point this evening.

    Everyone is responsible for their own drinks. Make sure you pay as you order, so once we decide to leave the place you can get out fast!
    See you all later!

    Is this still happening tomorrow or depends on how bad the weather gets?

    February 8, 2013

    • Edina

      Let's see how the weather is... but there are a few hardcore crawlers in this group...so I don't think the snow will stop them ;)

    The Irish Rover would be a good choice for after Rapture.

    So, I hate to be the weather downer, but I'm seeing a forecast of up to 2 feet of snow in NYC metro area Friday - Saturday. Should this actually happen, what's the hypothetical game plan? Please no one chase me with fire or anything. Haha.
