METRO Monorail Pub Crawl

**UPDATE: We're starting at Georgia's Market at 7:30 pm Saturday. They are expecting us and can accommodate us. They have excellent organic food, local beers and cheap wine!! great place to get some food prior to a crawl. please keep your tab closed so we can get everyone out by 9.

how to find us: Georgia Market is right on the corner of Main and Preston. Cant miss it. Walk in and go to the BASEMENT.

if you cant make dinner, you can meet us promptly at 9. We will all meet at the corner of Prairie and Main at 9.The Preston Rail station

 

*Due to construction on the main Metrorail line, this event is being postponed until Jan 12.***

 

So, there's been talk about doing a Monorail Pub Crawl for almost a year now. It's like an urban legend. I tried to do one four years ago with another group, but we had a Tropical Storm and so, we just hung around the Flying Saucer downtown all night instead. So, before the year's end, let's do a Monorail Pub Crawl!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How it works: Let's meet at the Flying Saucer and order some food and split some pizzas. We'll then go to the nearby Preston Station and buy a ticket for $1.25. Cash and coin is preferred. We'll then travel by rail to our Southmost point, the Museum District, and then start trekking back north via the Wheeler and Mcgowen stops, returning to Preston and our original parking...Technically, Metro says that you have to pay $1.25 each way, so just in case, be prepared to pay $2.50. But still, where else can you travel from Downtown to the Museum District with two stops in Midtown and back to Downtown for $2.50???!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7-9 pm PRESTON RAIL STOP --- Flying Saucer 705 Main St

9-10:30 MUSEUM DISTRICT ---  Monarch Bar

10:30 - 11:30 WHEELER ---       Double Trouble

11:30 - 12:30 MCGOWEN ----    Mongoose Vs Cobra

12:30 am - 2  BACK TO PRESTON --- State Lounge

State Lounge is just blocks from Flying Saucer....So, let's have a monster turn out and take over the Rail!!!

    I am here at Georgia Market. When you walk, walk to the left. You will see an arrow pointing to the cellar/basement. Walk down the steps. I am at the bar with our bartender Ananda. Wearing a striped shirt. We may have the whole basement to ourselves. If running late, meet us at 9 @ prairie and main.

    Folks, do not crash this event without an RSVP or without having spoken to me about it. I have to set some type of limit. And that limit has been reached for this event. For those signed up, looking forward to partying it up with you all!!

    1 · January 12, 2013

    • Joe

      Awesome translation- "if you didn't RSVP, shoot Stephen a message through the site. Don't be lame & crash" :-D

    For PARKING, if ur going to end up at the saucer, then i would park by the saucer and walk to georgia market. Youll then be right by ur car at the end of the crawl. There is free street parking all around downtown. Theres also street parking around the historic market square near the georgia market.

    January 12, 2013

  • Teresa

    how is parking at this market?? im quite concerned about it

    January 12, 2013

    • Teresa

    Hi, How can we get on Waiting List

    January 12, 2013

  • Rene

    Oh my goodness. This is a huge pub crawl. Enjoy

    January 12, 2013

  • Stephen

    Here are some additional programming notes. PLEASE READ. I send this out instead of making a huge announcement at the crawl. One, keep your tab closed so you can leave venue on time. Cash is preferred. Once u get ur drink, MOVE AWAY from the bar area. We will set up an area away from the bar so come to that area. Tip well. There is a chance we may have two groups riding on back to back trains if the group is large enough. We may also divide the group at Double Trouble with a group at nearby charleys big house. Please be flexible if youre asked to go to the 'less hip' venue. And as always, be patient, go with the flow with any changes, be prepared to stand and have an AMAZING TIME!! Cheers.

    Ok folks, this Meetup is CLOSED and completely FULL. As of noon of the day of, everyone who has commented here or texted me has been responded to. But we are closed for new business!! No mas. The gauntlet has been laid down. 130+ RSVPs. We emptied the Waiting List. This is either going to be our best Meetup ever or one huge hot mess!!! Either way, its going to be a ton of fun to see what happens! Im kind of curious myself as the organizer to see how it all turns out!!! :)

    January 11, 2013

  • Stephen

    Sorry, Georgia Market is on the corner of Prairie and Main. Walk in to the market and go down to the basement. Try to find us first but if you cant find us, feel free to call or text me at[masked]-3205. I will post a comment once i arrive in the basement.

    January 11, 2013

  • Stephen

    Hi everyone, please update your RSVP if you know you cannot make it. We do need a semi-accurate head cound as we finalize our arrangements. If you're not on the current list, im sorry but we have a small country signed up. This event is full. If ur on the waiting list, check back here tom for cancellations. See everyone signed up tom for an awesome crawl!!!!

    So, just to repeat, all 70 people that are signed up here should still all come out to the Mongoose Vs Cobra tonight, Saturday December 8 pm and hang out with us. We were going to end up at Mongoose Vs Cobra anyway that night. You don't have to RSVP for the Mongoose if you don't see this in time; we're not taking roll. We just want to see as many people still come out tonight to Mongoose at 8!!! And then come out January 12 for the full Crawl of course...

    1 · December 8, 2012

  • Stephen

    Heres the deal-e-o folks. Everyone that signed up for the pub crawl should still come out on saturday, dec 8. Meet tomorrow at 8 pm at the Mongoose vs Cobra. Its posted. We can ride the rail down to Double Trouble and back. But THE METRORAIL crawl has to include Preston so we moved it to jan. Hope everybody still comes to Mongoose sat at 8!!!

    Folks, I am POSTPONING this Meetup until January 12. While there does appear to be a dedicated rail running every 10 minutes, there seems to be too much confusion to have this event Saturday. For THE Metrorail CRAWL, I don't want any doubts about the rail service. I am still offering an event Saturday at 8 PM. Will post it shortly. Thanks for everyone's cooperation!

    December 7, 2012

    • Helen

      Stephen, the only stop in your list that is going to be affected is Preston. There are plenty of places south of the Downtown Transit Center stop. Maybe we can still do a tailored version?

  • Marco Baltazar F.

    Im just curious about the event logistics. 69 people are attending this event, even if only 50% show up, that is still a lot of people for a packed bar on a sat night in downtown.

    December 7, 2012

  • Stephen

    Hi everyone, i am still at work. Let me respond to this within an hour. Thanks Michael and Neal for bringing this to my intention. Actually there is dedicated rail service every 10 min downtown this weekend. I will send out an alternative plan shortly.

    FYI the metrorail won't have service in the downtown area this weekend due to construction. Might want to bypass downtown.
