Cap City Bartoberfest Bar Tour


Editorial Review

The popular fall bar tour, now in its 18th year, moves from Midtown (the area around Farragut North) to Chinatown.

Deals at all seven participating bars include $2 Coors Light, $3 Blue Moon and discounted appetizers, plus a souvenir koozie for the first 200 participants. Sign in at the Greene Turtle between 1 and 6, then move on to Bar Louie, Rocket Bar, R.F.D., Clyde's, the Irish Channel or Penn Quarter Sports Bar, all of which have specials until 9 p.m.

Bartoberfest isn't really an organized crawl (with a schedule, etc.), so your wristband gets you beers at as many or as few bars as you like. Still, if you haven't visited some of these places, the tour is a good way to see them - you might even find a new hangout for hockey season.

Save $3 off admission if you bring school supplies (lined paper, pens, notebooks, etc.), which will be donated to local charity Horton's Kids
