Whatcha doing this Wednesday night? Oh, yes? Fascinating. Well, do this instead:

The Thrillist/Genever Bols Downtown Punch Crawl 2011

$25 gets you a punchcard to collect & consume 6 libations from various downtown bars (full, more tantalizing details below).
The official event runs from 6p-11p, but we’re most likely starting off around 7:30-8pm. Get your tickets & organize any meet-ups here in this thread (if you are so inclined).

Better introduction (from the event site):
Fuel up with this damn refreshing Thrillist Reward: for a mere $25, you’ll pull a pass to Thrillist’s July 13th Downtown Punch Crawl, hooking it up at 6 fine Downtown establishments from 6-11p. You'll round up at either Cole’s or Bar & Kitchen for a 5hr walking marathon stringing together a sextet of unique bartender-created elixirs, each made with ... Holland’s Bols Genever.

Your punchcard (!) will command the following excellence at these drinkeries:

  • Varnish: The Dutch Pugilist, perhaps the tastiest application of the sweet science since Holyfield-ear lollipops
  • Cana Rum Bar: Panamanian Detective, with guava, Averna & the freshest of limes
  • Drago Centro: Pompeii Punch, also the world-ender Ivan used to level Rocky
  • Cole’s: Peach Cobbler, w/ sliced peaches, cinnamon simple syrup & angostura bitters
  • The Falls Lounge: Flowing Bols, a fruity pour w/ pineapple slices, citruses & Maraschino
  • Bar & Kitchen: Vondlepark Punch, which unlike “park, fondle, punch” is not just a re-creation of the last date you brought to Mulholland


I’ve put together a map to show you how close together all the bars are (not that this is the order in which we’ll visit the bars):

Haha. Permission granted! You've got a permanent pass. Look forward to roaming the streets with you!

As it gets closer to Wednesday night, we'll work out details for meeting up.

Cheers!

Excellent!

In case you didn't see the instructions on the site, we'll need to bring the print out of the Thrillist receipt to one of two bars, depending on your last name to receive an official Thrillist Downtown Punch Crawl map & pass:

Last Names A-M: Cole’s Bar
Last Names N-Z: Bar & Kitchen

Naturally, these are on opposite ends of the map in order to divide what might be a large number of people attending this event.

Bora Boris, Trader Tom, Jobu (if I'm not mistaken), Miss Mish & I will all be picking up our passes at Cole's.
John-O will be picking his up at Bar & Kitchen.

If John-O & I travel together, maybe we'll swing by Bar & Kitchen first to get his pass... then we all meet up at Cole's at 7:30?

It sounds like a plan to me. Cole's. 7:30 PM.
