pub crawl, [puhb-krawl] verb: the act of multiple people drinking in a number of pubs in a single night, normally walking between them. First attested 1910 in British slang. [synonyms: bar tour, bar hopping].
Ever wanted to explore the nightlife the metro DC area has to offer? Not sure where to go, who to go with, or if it will be fun? Then this is is your group! We'll be exploring a new neighborhood each outing and we've hit up neighborhoods such as Cleveland Park, Clarendon, U Street, Dupont, Chinatown, Little Ethiopia, Old Town, Georgetown, Ballston, K Street, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Logan Circle, and Capital Hill.
We've been going strong since our first outing in May 2008, exceeding even our own expectations!
The organizer's would like to stress that this isn't necessarily an opportunity to get blitzed, but more of an opportunity to meet new people, check out some new neighborhoods and venues, and of course have fun! Joining the group requires approval so make sure you answer the group questions and post some photos.
FOR NEW MEMBERS - Our group tends to be exclusive, i.e. we do not accept everyone into our group. Our outings are usually limited to 60 people depending on the neighborhoods and venues selected, so the overwelming majority of members will not be able to come out to every event. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT for you to submit a fun photo of yourself (not your dog, a pretty sunset or the beach por favor). Second, actually write something about yourself in your description - we do read your description and take that into account when selecting members.
CURRENT MEMBERS - RSVP's for events is important for us to get an accurate count of how many will be attending. 90% of our pub crawls are maxed out. Keep in mind that if you flake and don't show up, you are taking a spot from someone that wants to come out. Moving forward, if you RSVP Yes for an event and do not show up, you will go on our bad list...if you are on the bad more than twice, you may be removed from the group. It takes two seconds from any computer or smart phone to update your RSVP. So, have good manners and update your rsvp.
