Weekend Plans? Try Miami's Boat Bar Crawl (Video)
Boating season is back and along with it comes the Boat Bar Crawl, which is exactly what you think it is: bar hopping around Miami on a boat. So if you want to live out your own version of Lonely Island and T-Pain's "I'm on a Boat," hop aboard the boozy vessel this and every other Saturday through October.
Put together by the folks behind Keep Crawling Pub Crawl and Grub & Pub Tour, the Boat Bar Crawl was born of the desire to put Miami's water to good use. "Last year was the first time we did it, and it was so successful we decided to bring it back," says organizer Andres Bendeguz.
At $49 per person, your night will go a little something like this: you'll hit up Mojito Bar for a gratis drink (there's a free drink at each bar) before departing on your imbibing voyage. Getting your groove on (there's a DJ on board) all the way to Whiskey Joe's in Key Biscayne is completely acceptable, so long as once you get there, you get it together and can drink whatever they're pouring you. If you happen to get hungry, line your stomach with some gator bites or beer battered fish and chips. (You can purchase food or additional drinks at any of the Boat Bar Crawl stops).
All stops are an hour, and after Whiskey Joe's, you'll cruise across the bay whilst taking in the sunset until you arrive at your next and final stop, Mike's at Plaza Venetia, where you'll enjoy an amzing view of the bay, chug some suds and subsequently things will start to get interesting. In other words, you'll drink, you'll dance, you'll party. You might even make some decisions you'll regret the next morning (those end up being the best nights anyway).
Once you've made your way back to where you started, the after party will continue at Mojito Bar till your liver can handle. If you so happen to be celebrating either a birthday or a bachelorette party with five or more people, call ahead to make a reservation and you'll get your entry free.
Reserve quick: There is a Groupon discount for it right now!
Pro tip: might want to take some Dramamine with you just in case.
