"[drink-uh-bout] -noun 1. an informal bus ride taken by members of the communities of Normal Heights, North Park, South Park and beyond, for the purpose of drinking without driving, sampling the wares at multiple local establishments, and being seen by the public."
DrinkAbout takes place on Wednesday, August 15. Participating venues include Blind Lady Ale House, Sea Rocket, Small Bar, Toronado, and four more stops. The free DrinkAbout bus starts running at 7 p.m. at Blind Lady Ale House and the last ride drops off at 11:40 p.m., ending at Hamilton's. See the schedule above for all trolley times and stops.
So there's no reason to cry into your beer on Wednesday because your ride left without telling you. And there's no excuse for driving buzzed or drunk (like the guy who zoomed down our alley from Blind Lady Ale House and hit a parked car)--just take the free bus!
