The second annual Conched in Key West Charity Bar Crawl is almost here. I wanted to send out a reminder and spark a little excitement. I know I can’t wait to hit Duval with all you guys and do it for a great cause! I’m counting the days, literally.
Please sign up and get your tickets. That way you’ll get your crawl shirt and sponsored cup.
Here is a list of bars that we will be crawling to and making our mark on. It’s a great mix of famous places you’ve heard of and a few new places that will become favorites.
- Cork and Stogie
- Pearl’s Patio
- Rum Bar
- Flying Monkey
- Smokin’ Tuna
- Cowboy Bill’s
- Irish Kevins
- Willie T’s
- Kelly’s Caribbean Bar & Grill
- Captain Tony’s Saloon
It gets even better!!!!
And the latest addition to our group of amazing sponsors is Cruzan Rum!! Cruzan will be providing plastic cups with their logo, and the logos of the organizers and participating bars. The cup is free with the purchase of the crawl tickets! The cup will be good for a different set of bars other than the Saturday Crawl bars. Drinks will be Cruzan based drinks for a discount. The final details are still being worked out. The cups will be usable from Thursday to Sunday night so come down early and enjoy some cheap drinks from Cruzan.
Friday Night Pre-Party!
Now we all know that for a party like this you can’t just jump in headfirst. Much like a runner before a race you need to stretch out. So how does a bar crawler stretch out? That’s right! With a pre-party!!!! Friday night, join us at the Smokin Tuna for a pre-party with plenty of music and good times!!! The details are still in the works but I assure you this is not to be missed!!!
Key West Express Information
I think the saying, “Getting there is half the fun” was invented for the Key West Express. The Express is the ferry boat that travels from Ft. Myers Florida to Key West Florida. We are calling this the unofficial first stop on the bar crawl. And with a full bar serving a special Conched in Key West drink just for our trip, it’s sure to be a legendary start to a weekend full of fun.
Our bar crawl trip will take place Thursday, September 20th and you can return anytime you like (The boat doesn’t run on Monday’s and Wednesdays). We worked out an open ended return for you in case you’d like to return right after the crawl or stay awhile.
We worked out a round-trip ticket price of $115. That’s $31 dollars off the normal $146 price.
We are giving away 2 free tickets for this trip. Details come out next week. It’s going to be a rum infused contest, so stay tuned!
Crown Plaza La Concha Hotel Information
The Crown Plaza La Concha Key West sits right on famous Duval Street and will serve as the main hotel for the Conched in Key West Bar Crawl. You of course don’t have to stay here but we were able to get some great rates for everyone. It’s a legendary Key West hotel that has inspired guests like Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams. It has great rooms and an amazing roof top bar that offers views over the entire island. They’re located in the middle of all the action, 430 Duval Street. They’re holding a block of rooms for us for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The other days are on a first come first served basis at the discounted price. The process for making reservation is to call 305-296-2991 and mention that you are part of the Conched in Key West Pub Crawl group. If needed, our contact at La Concha is Mel Stewart.
