The Trenton Summer Pub and Grub Crawl is a warm-weather alternative to Trenton’s beloved Patriots Week bar crawl, which is typically held in December. While December’s event is a bar crawl, the summer event also allows guests to sample a variety of dining establishments, hence the “pub and grub” flare. Guests will have the opportunity to move at their own pace, either moving along with the tour or staying put if you find a spot you love. Per Deb D’Arcangelo of Revolutionary Trenton, “Revolutionary Trenton is pleased to co-sponsor this event with the Trenton Puerto Rican Community and Friends Organization. Like the Patriots Week Pub Crawl and Taste Trenton, it brings together those who both live in and outside the City to enjoy great Trenton offerings.”
If you have any questions or would like to learn more prior to the event, please email Deb D’Arcangelo at firstname.lastname@example.org or Anajae Register at email@example.com for more details. An evening of drinks and dining alongside a fantastic crew awaits you, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of one of the summer’s best new events!
