On July 1st, 2009 a thing will occur that has not happened in Utah in a long time. You... anyone with I.D. in their pocket will be able to go into a bar, order a drink, pay for it and walk out - having payed for only the drink you bought.
Utah's Private Club System is on borrowed time, and adults everywhere are gearing-up to celebrate at it's wake. To help celebrate the City Weekly is spearheading what is billed as "Utah's biggest bar crawl ever!"
Starting at 5pm on July 1st. 16 former private clubs from Sandy to SLC will participate in what they'd term as a bar open house instead of a drunken pub crawl. Organizers want people who participate to be responsible... and damn it! they're serious about it.
To help people participate responsibly the City Weekly rented six buses that are gonna be creating a "bar transit system" for people to pick-up every half hour and go to the next location. There is no charge for the bus rides and then at the end of the night City Weekly's also gonna pay for their cab ride home.
I tried looking up the list of participating bars on City Weekly's website this morning but came up with bupkis. If anyone else has the list please post it up. Cheers!
