This past Saturday was the big day for our safari-themed charity pub crawl in downtown Greenville. Of course I'm a bit biased, but I'd have to say that it went extremely well! In the end we had 41 people participate and we raised $365 for Greenville County Animal Care Services! And considering this first time event was pretty successful, we're definitely hoping to make it an annual occurrence :)
We started the evening at Mojitos on South Main, and they were gracious enough to offer us a special of any mojito for $5! It was a great kick off for a summer pub crawl, for sure.
Rey's was our fourth stop, and the only semi complaint that I have about the evening revolves around this. Despite having been in contact with the manager, the bartenders had no idea that a pub crawl would be stopping there. However, we still ended up attracting I two more people with our crawl and around 10 PM it was time to head over to Hoops and Hops!
All in all, we took what we felt were the best ideas from past pub crawls that we've been to in Greenville and combined them for one heck of a fun night. As I already mentioned, we raised $365 for GCACS and I hope to put on another Walk on the Wild Side pub crawl next summer and maybe raise even more money for a great cause!
