INtoxicating History: A Historic Bar Crawl through Time, Space and Debates
Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT.
The cityscape and technology have changed, but the debated topics for the past 100 years have not. Indiana Humanities is connecting current issues to their historical roots with an interactive bar crawl in downtown Indianapolis. Participants will begin their night in the catacombs hidden beneath the Indianapolis City Market, then will split into four groups to travel to the city’s oldest bar, historic transit hub, and timely watering holes, exploring critical issues along the way. With the knowledge that heavy topics go down easiest with a suitable beverage, issues up for discussion include human sexuality, transit, economic woes, and foreign policy.
“The past isn’t dead. It isn’t even past.”- William Faulkner
What: A historic bar crawl through downtown Indianapolis featuring interpreters and performances
When: Thursday, June 6, 6 – 9 p.m. with optional after party to follow
Where: Everyone will begin in the catacombs below the City Market (Free parking available in the lot east of the market). From there, we’ll break up into four groups; everyone will visit the following locations (but not in this exact order) to discuss various topics within a certain decade, and end up back at City Market for an after-party at the new beer garden (weather permitting).
Provisions: Your ticket price includes a drink at each location (including Sun King at City Market to kick things off). Some locations will be providing a choice of beer, wine and well drinks; others will be creating specialty cocktails. Non-alcoholic options will be available at each location. Food will be available at the pre- and post- parties, and some snacks will be provided along the way.
Transportation Info: Transportation will be available (via trolley or walking) from City Market to all locations. The parking lot to the east of the City Market will be available (and free), and has adequate parking.
