  • We are meeting at a table near the front door of NewBo City Market (2:22pm)
  • There is beer inside; Ryan, our Hoptimist at NewBo is offering us $1 off Market Lager.
  • It's supposed to be beautiful and in the 70s!
  • Note, all stops have food, but for time's sake, I'd suggest you grab a bite before, at NewBo, or at our last stop around 5pm (or wait and go to the market).
Please RSVP on the public Facebook event.

Q: Is business casual acceptable?
A: Anything is acceptable. leisure suits, belly dance costumes, grass skirts, a t-shirt with the word "tux" sharpied on it.  Click on the links below for ideas.
Q: Can I wear heels or nice shoes?
A: Most of the trail is paved with some grassy areas.  I've never worn heels.  "Trail" is about 1.5 miles.  We will not be blessing any virgin shoes.
Q: What is we are late?
A: Try to call/text someone you know on trail including me.  However, we will try to post each bar right before we arrive so you can join late.
Q: Can you drink on the street at Market After Dark?"
A: Yes!  Even Alcohol... assuming you are 21+.

Market After Dark:
This event was meant to be longer, but it worked out so well to do it the weekend of Marker After Dark.  This is Cedar Rapids' night-time Farmer's Market.  There will be lot of entertainment, vendors, food, and you and drink on the street! 😎  Even if you want' make our bar crawl, I hope to see you at the Market After Dark.
So we will have only 3-4 stops on the bar crawl in an effort to end up at the market.
The plan is to eat here and let everyone get what they want, but it's understandable if you grab a bite along the way too. BANNER BUZZ MAKE IT VISIBLE Patio Signs Decor - Relax, Unwind &  Accept The Crazy Hanging Funny Metal Outdoor Party Sign (18" (H) X 12" (W))  : Patio, Lawn & Garden
