It’s January. Meh. The holidays are over, and now we have the rest of the winter to look forward to. Or for some of us, not to look forward to. Here comes the cold, the snow, the blustery days, and the cabin fever. What we really need is something fun to put on our calendars. Something to really, really look forward to. How about a cool pub crawl? That's fun.

The Downtown Middletown Pub Crawl might be just the thing you need to wipe away those winter blues. It’s happening on Saturday, Feb. 5, and it looks like it’s going to be a blast. Here's how it works. There are 7 participating bars with one-hour time slots at each bar where you will get a free select drink with your ticket. The participating businesses are Tapped, QB Ball, Clemson Bros. Brewery, Quinnz Pinz, Equilibrium Brewery, The Switch Inn, Apex Brewery. Now that’s what I call a fun filled day and evening.

There are four routes scheduled for the Downtown Middletown Pub Crawl. There will be 30 - 40 crawlers on each route, and additional routes may be added according to ticket sales. Route times will be from 3 PM - 10M or 5 PM - 11 PM, depending on which route you choose. You can get your tickets right here or they can be picked up from January 31 at QB Ball on Cottage Street in Middletown.

For more information about the crawl and to check out the four different routes to choose from, visit the Downtown Middletown Pub Crawl web page.
