The first one was an overwhelming success. Now, this summer's pub crawl is expected to draw even bigger crowds.
Festive revelers will descend on Mount Dora for the "Red, White & Booze" pub crawl on July 3. Due to the success of the Tipsy Elf Crawl last December, the upcoming event has garnered more participating businesses than its predecessor.
Crawlers can visit fifteen different stops spread throughout downtown and uptown while strolling, sipping and listening to live music. After dark the revelers can pause to enjoy the city's annual fireworks show at Evans Park.
Participating watering holes include Pisces Rising, Maggie's Attic, Mermaid Juice, Magical Meat Boutique, One Flight Up, Fiesta Grande, Norm's Palette, Copacabana, The Lost Parrot, The Olive Branch and more. This year the event will also feature discounts at participating stores.
Local musician David Oliver WIllis organized the stops along the route. Willis also coordinated the Tipsy Elf Crawl, which raised money for Lake Cares Food Pantry. The "Red, White & Booze" pub crawl does not benefit a charity, but Willis is planning three other pub crawls later this year that will.
The pub crawl kicks off at 3 p.m. and lasts until 9 p.m. Wristbands are $10, or for an additional $10 crawlers can get a Red White & Booze T-shirt. Group rates are available for parties of five or more. Get more info. Crawlers must be twenty-one years or older. Be sure to arrange designated drivers or taxi service after the crawl.
