Here’s the itinerary for the bar crawl celebrating the launch of The Year of Drinking Adventurously. The six stops encompass many of the beverages featured in the book. I tried to make it as logistically manageable as possible…Most of the stops in the E. Village and Lower East Side are walkable. There’s a direct subway line from the LES to Williamsburg (J, M) so getting to Bushwick Country Club should be fairly simple (and there’s always Uber, if all else fails). These are subject to change, so keep checking this space, the official Facebook page for The Year of Drinking Adventurously and @JeffCioletti and @DrinkableGlobe on Twitter with the hashtag, #Drinking52. You can also track our whereabouts throughout the day, as we’ll be updating regularly.
