Saint Arnold Pub Crawl in Austin

Hey Austinites, Saint Arnold is having a pub crawl here on Saturday. I can't make it, but y'all should go drink one for me. Details below. And if you're wondering why they can't tell exactly where they'll be, thank those idiots at the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (and our state Legislature) and their stupid, arbitrary rules.
Since we overwhelmed some of the bars at the last Crawl, we are utilizing our "open house" schedule for the first 3 stops this time. This means that we will be punching tickets at all three of the first three stops for three hours so people can split up between the establishments. You will get your ticket at whichever stop you decide to visit first. But, VERY IMPORTANT, we will only be handing out the tickets between 6 PM and 7 PM. Thus, you still need to start between 6 and 7. Then, at 9 PM, everybody will gather at one final stop and that is where we will award the glasses. The prize for making all four stops will be our latest St. Arnold pub crawl pint glass. We will have a large but limited supply of glasses. And as always, designated drivers are both eligible for the award and encouraged to attend! We can't tell you exactly where the stops will be, so instead enjoy our vague directions and hints:

The first 3 stops between 6 PM and 9 PM:
On E. 7th St. around Red River. Expect lawyers whispering to judges.
On E. 6th St. between Sabine St. and I-35. Be a good ambassador from our republic.
On E. 6th St. just past Comal. Freedom, keep walkin', keep on your toes and don't stop talkin' 'bout freedom.

The Final Stop at 9 PM:
E. 6th St. just west of Medina. Seek nirvana.

There is plenty parking under I-35, and lots of cool food carts to get a base down!
Hope to see everyone there! (Please leave the vuvuzelas at home!)

I wanted to make it to this thing so freakin' bad! Couldn't make it out this year. Would have been amazing I'm sure.

Next time :)
