Ocean City’s boardwalk is not just for kids and this weekend offers proof in the form of an adults-only bar crawl.
The Ocean City Boardwalk Bar Tour, sponsored by Lindy Promotions and Coors Light, is Saturday, July 19, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
This isn’t the typical bar hop from your college days. The tour, now in its second year, will have 10 bars participating with discounted drinks such as $2 Coors Lights, $3 Blue Moons, $3 Redd’s Apple Ales and $3 Summer Shandy’s. Featured bars include Shenanigans Irish Pub, Hooter’s, Caribbean Pool Bar, Bull on the Beach, Guiddos Burritos, Connors Beach Cafe, Hammerheads, Brass Balls, Peppers and Cowboy Coast Country Saloon. Bars will have food and shot specials and the first 500 participants will receive a tour koozie.
The newly opened Cowboy Coast Country Saloon will host a post-party from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with disc jockeys, giveaway prizes and more drink specials. There's no cover fee for bar tour participants.
The tour begins at Shenanigans Irish Pub, where registration is also open 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets purchased in advance are $5 at https://www.xorbia.com/e/lindy/BoardwalkBarTour2014. Event day tickets will be higher.
