ALTON — Alton Main Street invites the public to a Cinco de Mayo-themed pub crawl in Downtown Alton.
Participants will travel to many of Alton's best bars and restaurants, including a couple of hot new spots, on Tuesday, May 5.
$10 tickets are on sale now at participating establishments, which include: Big Muddy Pub, Bossanova Restaurant & Lounge, Old Bakery Beer Co., The Firehouse, Shakers, Chez Marilyn, 300 State, Bluff City Grill, Ragin’ Cajun Piano Bar and Bubby & Sissy’s
Participants can check in any time after 2 p.m. May 5 at Bluff City Grill, 102 W. Ninth St. in Alton, to get their pub crawl T-shirt and a passport that lists the specials for each establishment. The “crawlers” will make their way around the district to enjoy food and drink specials, entertainment and giveaways on this self-guided event. Participants can drop their passports with the bartender any time before 10 p.m. after they have visited all of the stops they want to see.
Prizes will be up for grabs, and one participant will win the grand prize – a pair of home field box seats to see the St. Louis Cardinals play the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 25. Face value of the tickets is $143 each. Participants will be placed into the drawing one time for every establishment on the passport where they’ve made any purchase of food, merchandise, alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage. Alton’s Best Cabs will be offering half-price cab rides for participants; simply show passports to the driver to redeem the discount.
