‘Cinco de MEGA-Crawl’ Planned Saturday

Cinco De MEGA-Crawl sign in ClarendonA large bar crawl is planned in Courthouse, Clarendon and Ballston this weekend.

The Cinco de Mayo-themed “Cinco de MEGA-Crawl” will be held from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, according to organizer GoCity Events. Tickets are available online for $15.

GoCity, which also organizes the annual Shamrock Fest in D.C., says participating bars include Clarendon Grill, Velocity 5, Mad Rose Tavern, Greene Turtle, Hunan One, Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill, Mister Days, Wilson Tavern, Hard Times and “more to be added.” The crawl will feature “exclusive drink and food specials at each stop” and “Cinco de Mayo festivities, entertainment, music & fun.”

The Arlington County Board this month approved additional funding that will allow the police department to have more officers on hand during pub crawls to make sure patrons don’t get out of hand. A St. Patrick’s Day-themed bar crawl in March resulted in numerous alcohol-related arrests and resident complaints.
