Are you ready to see your Tampa Bay Lightning back in action after their historic 62 win season? Come join Downtown Crawlers for their Tampa Bay Lightning Season Kickoff Bar Crawl on Saturday, September 28th, to get a kick start for the new season. 

Taking the party bus around downtown, you will be able to experience the atmosphere of some of the Lightning’s top fan spots. Make sure to wear your blue lighting jersey or other lightning gear and bring your friends to get hyped for the Bolts season!

With your ticket, your afternoon will be fun-filled until the very end. Each bar will have different bar games for chances to win vouchers or drinks and discounted food and drinks. Plus, there will be a raffle and other free fun to keep you happy for the rest of the month! 

Ready to get going? Don’t forget to kick off the crawl with Downtown Crawlers famous FREE Shotgun beer! 

The fun starts at 3 p.m. 

At 3 p.m., the first stop will be at Downtown Tampa’s classic British pub, Yeoman's Cask & Lion. Located near Amalie Arena, Yeoman’s is an open area bar and restaurant that is perfect for all pre and post-game activities. Upon entering Yeoman’s, you will be given a free welcome drink along with discounted food and drinks! 

At 4:30 p.m. you’ll hop back on the bus and make your next stop at American Social to enjoy a more water front view, while also being in Downtown! You can either sit inside with the games on TVs or enjoy the outdoor seating by the water. When entering, you will get another drink welcome shot! You will also be able to take advantage of their happy hour, which includes 50 percent off select craft beer, wine, liquor, and $6 shareable plates. 

Your next stop takes you from water front views into Channel side, where you will be able to enjoy an indoor setting at 6 p.m. at District Tavern. A regular neighborhood bar, but with a more upscale twist, it is the prime spot for Lightning fans that want to be close to Amalie. Oh, and don’t forget your free welcome drink!  

As the night comes near the end, you will make your final stop at the best place to have a wind down, Franklin Manor. With live music and great patio lighting, it has a phenomenal night life vibe and it’s wonderful way for Bolt fans to kick back. Don’t forget you get yet another free drink here too!
