Valentine Gras Today!

Good morning,

We’re looking forward to seeing you in a couple hours for Valentine Gras. Just a few quick updates.

1. It’s going to be super cold out there today. Via google maps, the longest walk you have will be 6 minutes between bars. And the majority are under 30 seconds. Please dress appropriately.

2. As we were preparing our giveaway bags last night, we discovered that out Ninja multi-tool order came in short. So if you don’t get one in your bag and really wanted one, please e-mail us tomorrow and we will mail you one. We’ve contacted the company that we ordered from and hope to get it resolved ASAP.

3. Our day of tickets are gone. The combination of the cold weather and people traveling for the long weekend, we didn’t expect to sell so many tickets online. But the past 48 hours have been epic. So if you have a friend who wants to come at the last minute, we just don’t have any giveaways left. Sorry.

We love our crawlers! See you this afternoon!

Registration bars are

12:00 – 12:50 – Paddy O’s – 33 Union Street

1:00 – 1:50 – Hennessy’s – 25 Union Street

2:00 – 3:00 – The Blackstone Grill – 15 Union Street

Harry Potter Trivia Night is Coming Back

IMG_1707

We have our first champs. We had a very good time at our very first Harry Potter Trivia Night. Things went so well that we’re trying it again on March 2nd. Last night we had 25 teams compete and it was a full house for sure. This time we’re going to limit to 20 teams so people will have more breathing room. I know a few teams had to stand for awhile. We also have a baseline on what type of questions we should be asking so we are very excited. Get your tickets here.

It’s Harry Potter Trivia Night

Posted on

SOLDOUT.png

We’re very much looking forward to seeing you tonight. We never thought we’d get this much attention for hosting a trivia night. It’s going to be a blast.

We have a few points of order to make sure the night goes smoothly

1. If you are driving, the bar will validate parking at the Parcel 7 Garage
Located above the Haymarket T station. It’s $3.00 for 3 hours.

2. We’re going to have a packed house. We had to put a limit on how many teams could join as we were nearing capacity. That said, I know a few teams mentioned that they were having friends come by just to spectate. So I’m not sure what that number will be. But the bar will be closed to the public for our private Harry Trivia Event.

3. We’ve had a ton of interest about doing this again. Currently we’re planning on having another Harry Potter Trivia Night on March 2nd. Tickets should be available the next couple of days with the exact details.

See you tonight

CHEERS & BUTTERBEERS!

MMHO: Epcot drinking around the World

Posted on Updated on

We’re introducing a new feature on the website. We’ll use the Monday Morning epcotHangover to review places we’ve gone to or things we’ve done when we’re NOT crawling. Restaurants, bars, tastings, event, we’ll cover them here.

Last week was vacation time for Crawl in Boston.  We headed south to go on the most Magical Bar Crawl on Earth! We’ve gone to Epcot’s World Showcase a few times now, and it’s always a blast.  We normally go in September when the kids go back to school and it’s less crowded, but scheduling conflicts pushed our trip back to January.  Read on for our overview and tips and tricks.

We started in China.  We went to a stand which has several different slushy drinks.  chinaWe went with the Tipsy Ducks in Love, which was a mix of coffee, black tea, milk, and bourbon.  Caffeine seemed like a good way to start the day, and bourbon never hurts either. This was reminiscent of a Starbucks frap, pretty solid.  We were able to sit and take in the scenery since this is not a beverage you can drink quickly.

After China, we hopped over to Germany.  Here you can get such fare as sausages, pretzels and other German delicacies.  You can also get shots of Jager, which we passed on.  They have several beers, and we went with the Oktoberfest, which is always a safe bet.

From there, we headed to Italy, which is one of my personal favorites.  It seems like italythere’s always a fun show going on there, and the square is fun to sit in and watch. We always get a wine sampler.  I assume they have other things somewhere in Italy, but we always get the wine flight.

After Italy is the good old USA.  This always seemed like kind of a cheat to me, since EVERYTHING ELSE is America, but it’s there in all its star spangled glory.  We went for a classic Sam Adams and listened to an a capella group sing some Disney hits (which was better than it sounds, but we were already several drinks in).

After the USA, we headed over to Japan.  This is a good place for sake.  Normally we get a plain sake, but we decided to try something different and get a green tea sake slushy.  It was very sweet, and I think next time we’ll go back to regular sake.  We did get to watch a delightful drum show though.

moroccoNext stop was Morocco.  Here we got a red sangria that was tasty, if not super traditional.  Morocco is a fun area to explore, with neat little stores, and if you look around, you can find a building that looks like a….member of male anatomy.  Just find it.  It makes a great picture.

From Morocco, we headed to France.  Here they have some spectacular drinks, such as the Grey Goose Citron frozen lemonade.  It’s delicious, and they serve it in a (plastic) martini glass, so you feel extra classy.

From there we hit merry old England, which is where things got aggressive. Once we englandhit England, we were greeted with $15 Johnnie Walker flights, and a Imperial Beer tasting for $11, which included 5 generous samples (Bass, Harp, Guinness, Strongbow, and Boddington’s).  These are served in a friendly little faux pub that is pretty delightful and fun.  On our first trip around the (Epcot) world, we made the mistake of starting with England, and it set a strong tone for the day, so now we start at the other end.  On this particular trip, Mexico and Norway had really long lines, leading us to start in China.

From England, you go to Canada.  Here you can get something called a “Torontopolitan”, which is basically a vodka and cranberry, and they have all the normal Canadian beers as well.  mexico

We headed back to Mexico.  There’s a really fun little margarita bar in the big restaurant building here which we were trying to get into.  It still had a line on our second try, so we settled for a margarita from a stand.  They had Patron, though, so it wasn’t too bad at all.  We normally get to the park earlier, and I recommend you try to do the same and get into the bar.

Finally, we hit up Norway.  There you can get shots of aquavit, but luckily we had norwayenough bearings at this point to know that would be a terrible idea.  We split a Carlsburg, (which I am not positive is actually Norwegian).

After our excursion came to a close, we decided to forgo the light show and hop a cab back to our hotel.  There’s a back entrance to Epcot which leads out to the Disney Boardwalk where we were able get a cab (please don’t drink and drive at Disney, or anywhere!).  We highly recommend giving the Epcot crawl a try if you find yourself in Orlando.

sunset epcot

Pro tip:  If you go, and don’t stay at a Disney hotel, be careful if you take an Uber to the park.  We thought most Uber drivers would know how to get to the theme parks, but ours didn’t and followed his GPS, which takes you to the administration offices for Epcot.  Tell you Uber driver to follow the purple signs, not the GPS. There are actually signs for and Uber drop off area.

Design1 copyCalling all Muggles!  Hogwarts is coming to Boston. Crawl in Boston has teamed up with The Blackstone to host an epic Harry Potter trivia night based on the books and movies.  Grab a team of 2 – 4 and prepare to drop some HP knowledge like your name is Hermione.  There will be prizes, giveaways, and of course, a little bit of magic. And Butter Beer!

Valentine Gras Registration Info

Posted on Updated on

Not A Bad HaulWe’re back from Charlotte and New Orleans. Super Bowl victory and awesome parade today (and a lot more snow than when we left). Fun trips but it’s time to get Valentine Gras on your minds.

We did some shopping while in New Orleans for Valentine Gras. Everyone now will get a bell. Make that noise! We also have flashing masks limited to first 100 who show up. We would’ve purchased more but it was a struggle to get even that many in our collective luggage.

This is the case with the flashing roses as well. We have a bit more of those due to extra inventory from last year but they’re also on first come, first serve basis.

We have a few points of order to help make the day go as smoothly as possible:

Registration opens at 12:00 sharp and ends at 3:00.22

You will need to bring either a printed Eventbrite ticket or show the app on your phone. If you don’t have a paper ticket or the phone app, you can use your ID to pick up your ticket. Please be ready when you get to the top of the line. We’ll be checking in hundreds of you and nobody wants to be stuck behind the person who doesn’t have any of their stuff ready.

Also please note that there are more than one crawl in Boston on Saturday. Please make sure that your ticket says Crawl In Boston. Otherwise we won’t be able to check you in. We have around a dozen left. We’re so looking forward to seeing you.

Here are just some pictures from years past11

Valentine’s Crawl – 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011

Mardi Crawl – 2013 and 2011

And here are some ideas from our Pinterest page

Valentine’s and Mardi Crawl

Registration will be by last name by ticket buyer:

12:00 – 3:00 – Kinsale – 2 Center Plaza

Bar schedule:

You will receive the entire schedule when you register. We will have 9 bars total. All the bars will be in the Faneuil Hall and Financial District areas. We are not releasing the schedule prior to the crawl, as we want to keep this event as exclusive as possible for your own comfort. Please note, the bars have the right to refuse entry to anyone due to bar capacity or personal incapacity. Also, you will need to show a valid license or ID to gain entry to each of the bars.

CASH IS KING

I know that bringing your card might be easy. But when tons of people are trying to order drinks, it takes a lot more time to open and close a tab than to pay with cash. Plus you’d be surprised about how many people forget to close their tabs at the end of the night and leave for home without their credit cards. There are multiple ATMs around Faneuil Hall…check one out!

Remember to drink responsibly and use public transportation.  Don’t drink and drive!gronk star
