A popular augmented reality game has taken the world by storm, and now you can expect it to take over your local bar. Pokemon Go bar crawls are being organized at a ridiculous rate, to combine older players’ love for gaming and drinking beer. The game encourages players to move around their locality and catch all 250 of the original creatures. If you’re an avid Pokemon trainer, make sure you attend the crawl closest to you!
July 23 – Brooklyn, New York
There are actually two big bar crawls planned in Brooklyn this weekend. One starting at Spritzenhaus in North Brooklyn that kicks off at 1pm. There are at least six bars on the tour that should get you a big variety in food and drink specials, as well as an abundance of Pokeballs. Another crawl starts at the Barcade in Williamsburg that will hit six stops between 7pm and 10pm. Both pub crawl events are offering contents and prizes (hopefully store credit for Pokecoins).
July 23 – Atlanta, Georgia
If you find yourself in the Atlanta area, you’re in for a treat. Atlanta Bar Crawls is sponsoring an official Pokemon Go bar crawl that is promised to hit up the key spots in midtown. This event guarantees 20+ Pokestops on the trip and at least 50 lures for non-stop spawning. This might be for serious trainers only, though — the event requires you to purchase tickets (ranging from $10 to $25) to participate.
July 23 – Sacramento, California
Trainers and bar goers in the Sacramento area can look forward to a twelve stop crawl that is filled with Pokemon themed specials, starting at Barwest. Whether you order specially colored drinks based on your team at Blue Cue or save up to $2 off on select beers at Der Biergarten, you’re bound to have a great time.
July 25 – Detroit, Michigan
Pokemon Go players in Detroit should look out for the bar crawl that starts out at Checker’s around 6pm. There isn’t too much of a structured plan that indicates what stops the trip will pass through, but you can count on stopping at any nearby Pokestop to farm Pikachus and grab pitchers.
July 30 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
If you find yourself in the City of Brotherly Love this weekend, make sure you check into this Pokemon Go pub crawl. Sponsored by Shibbly, an app that lets users share locations in a newsfeed-style, you’ll find yourself on a trip around Fishtown that hits at least seven stops.
July 30 – Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Join the biggest Pokemon Go bar event in Milwaukee, starting at The Pub Club! This is another event that requires tickets (don’t worry, they’re pretty cheap). Included in your entry will be free WiFi, charging stations, and seven straight hours of lures! You will enjoy specials as low as $2 from different bar crawl venues, as well as free cover into the Red, White, & Blue after party!
August 6 – Chicago, Illinois
Join hundreds of other Pokemon trainers in Wicker Park at the first Chicago Pokemon Go bar crawl! Event details are still being in the works, so check the Facebook page regularly. Make sure you brush up on your Wicker Park bar specials for the day so you know where to catch all of the deals… and Pokemon.
August 20 – Denver, Colorado
Thousands of Pokemon Go trainers are ready to hunt around the great city of Denver for some great Pokemon and great bar deals at this official pub crawl. Be ready to check out some great bars in the River North area (just north east of Coors Field). Stay tuned to the Facebook event page for more bar crawl updates on the closest Pokestops and participating bars.
