HillVets has organized a philanthropic pub crawl Friday night where you can trade a warm winter coat for a tour of local watering holes, gratis draft brews and a show by some hometown rockers.
The Veterans Day weekend collection effort kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at Bullfeathers (410 First St. SE) and will include stops at The Dubliner (4 F St. NW) and Béarnaise (313 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) before the evening is through. Interested participants are requested to bring a new winter jacket to donate to the cause.
The contributed clothing nets each attendee one free draft beer at each location, with each bar offering up their full catalog of freshly poured suds — ranging from four craft brews at Béarnaise (including DC Brau’s The Corruption, Delirium Tremens and Eggenberg Pils) to the 30-plus lines at Bullfeathers.
Local funkmeisters the B Side Shuffle are scheduled to serenade the group when everyone stumbles into the Dubliner:
Can’t crawl this evening?
