It's On! 2015 Mass Transit Pub Crawl

All right! It's almost time. Mass Transit Pub Crawl is here on Sunday. The weather man has rain in the forecast so dress appropriately. We will be out in the elements as we make our way from place to place. Don't worry though, the weather will not dampen any of the fun. This year's lineup is set; we have two veteran establishments we will be visiting again and three new places that will be mixed in. As I always say, this is a long day and not intended to be a drunk-fest (although you can if you want!). We are getting together to enjoy friendship, fellowship and doing something tried and true in a unique way.

If you want to use social media to spread the good word, please do! If you will you use the hashtag #MTPC15 we can tie all of the postings together. I will be Tweeting and Periscoping our day for the masses to enjoy; or not.

So, without further adieu, let's take a look at where we are going!

First stop..........

Eight Bells is the offspring of Ten Bells Tavern in Oak Cliff. It is located in Fair Park in the former Old Amsterdam space. This is a new venue this year. Check them out here:

Next up........


Also a new stop on this year's crawl, Craft and Growler calls itself a beer filling station and offers a wide variety of draft beers. Feel free to purchase a growler and take it on the road with us. Take a look at C&G here:


And the next stop is..........


Our first repeat! We enjoyed CBC so much last year that they made the cut for 2015. Comfortable digs, nice vibe and excellent beer and booze selections highlight this stop. Here is the website:


Now we're headed to............

That's right, Lee Harvey's! A perennial favorite. Need I say more? I didn't think so.
Here they are:


And to finish our adventure........

Industry Alley Bar

Our final new entry for this year. Industry Alley is Charlie Papaceno's new place. If that name sounds familiar, it should. Charlie is the former owner/proprietor of the Windmill Lounge. The Windmill has been a stop on previous crawls and Charlie is an outstanding host and barkeep. Check him out right here:


That's a wrap for now. Looking forward to seeing everyone Sunday! Have a Merry Christmas and we'll see each other 11:00 AM at the Mockingbird Station DART platform!
