Join Barred in DC and the popular Wiz Happy Hour on the evening of Saturday, January 17th for the Chinatown Bar-sketball Crawl. This bar crawl will span 4 different bars, one during each quarter of that night’s Washington Wizards @ Brooklyn Nets NBA game. At each stop along the way we will be playing a bar basketball game, while giving away prizes for different contests & games at each establishment. Wiz Happy Hour recently was featured by the Washington Post in two separate blog posts (Going Out Guide & DC Sports Bog) and an awesome article from Fritz Hahn that made the print edition for his well-attended creative event to woo Kevin Durant to DC
The bar excursion will run alongside of the Verizon Center in the Penn Quarter/Chinatown neighborhood in DC. The crawl will stop by 4 sister bars:
- Penn Social (801 E St. NW)-check in at 7p, arcade shooting contest starts soon after [pre-game & 1st quarter] – $3 Bud Light
- Iron Horse Taproom (507 7th St. NW, at E St.) [2nd quarter] – $5 Atlas
- Rocket Bar (714 7th St. NW, at G/H St.) [3rd quarter] – TBD
- Jackpot (726 7th St. NW, at G/H St.) [4th quarter] – $5 Coors
This is not just an event for Wizards, or even basketball, fans. Each of these stops has some great craft beer selections on tap and plenty of games to enjoy, while Barred in DC will be on hand to give you some ideas about what to drink and other places to visit in the future. Have a blast with your friends, both old and new and enjoy the first Saturday since August without football.
A prize will be awarded at each bar for different things including creating a “Bar Golf” style bar basketball game with a scorecard, an arcade basketball shooting contest, a Nerf basketball 3 point shootout, and the best hipstery jersey!
Don’t forget to grab that old NBA jersey from middle school and rock it one more time! Additional details will be added as we get closer to the Bar-sketball crawl.
