Your friends and family are in town for a few days to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. What to do, what to do? 813area has your answer! Show them a good ol’ time and take them to the Downtown Crawlers’ Thanksgiving Eve Bar Crawl!

Launched in 2016, Downtown Crawlers is a premier experiential events team that organizes fully-guided multi-venue bar tours and urban socials.

This is their second year throwing a Thanksgiving Eve Bar Crawl. Last year, 200 people came out to party with old friends and make new ones.

“It’s so much more than a bar crawl,” said Thomas Neuert, director of events. “It’s a guided networking tour.”

The crawl will remain in Ybor and each location is conveniently within walking distance.

Downtown Crawlers is pleased to have the following bars participate in the Thanksgiving Eve Bar Crawl:

Downtown Crawlers team will also be there at each location to greet and check on everyone to make sure you are having a good time!

At each location, you will receiver a welcome shot.  You’ll also be provided a food and drink sheet that lists the specials each spot is offering.  

If you don’t make it to the check-in location, feel free to start at any of the participating bars. A Downtown Crawlers representative will be there to greet you and your friends with a wristband and welcome shot.

Here are some upcoming events that Downtown Crawlers is putting together:

Outside of signature events, they offer personalized event consulting for bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthdays and special occasions. Custom corporate event packages and team building activities for groups of all sizes can also be booked upon request.

The Thanksgiving Eve Bar Crawl kicks off at 8 p.m. Wednesday and ends at 2 a.m. Thursday, which will give you plenty of time to recover before devouring turkey and the fixins.

Individual early bird tickets are $15 and tickets for groups (five tickets for the price of four) are $60. Purchase yours here.

Included in the ticket price are:

  • One welcome shot at each participating location
