Event Details

The 37th

Tchoupitoulas Social Aid & Athletic Club* Bar-a-thon

Friday, May 18, 2018

what's (probably going to be) new? 

Capped registration. 
Specially brewed beer just for the race; taste-tested in early spring by you all. 
Renewed commitment results preservation and spreading awards not just among the goofy, but to the fleet of foot/gullet as well.   


Race is always 2 Fridays after Jazz Fest.

For the 37th iteration, that's Friday, May 18, 2018. 6:05PM at Le Bon Temps; rain or shine. 

Registration gets you free admission to Soul Rebels concert on Thursday, tshirt, race entry, poster, beers and (if you make it to the finish line) the much ballyhooed "huggy memento" of yesteryear (it's a koozie, folks) - as well as a shot at great awards, post-race oysters, and the opportunity to become part of history. 

what's a bar-a-thon?

It's part of Uptown history. A footrace designed by the old Tchoupitoulas Social Aid & Athletic Club. Spanning 6 miles, visiting 6 bars, providing 6 beers. As serious as you want it to be. 

1. LE BON TEMPS ROULE (4801 Magazine)
2. REGINELLI'S (741 State) (once upon a time the Hofbrau House)
3. TJ QUILL'S (7600 Maple) 
4. PATOIS RESTAURANT (6078 Laurel) (formerly Norby's/Nardo's)
5. DOS JEFES UPTOWN CIGAR BAR (5535 Tchoupitoulas)
6. GRIT'S BAR (530 Lyons)

Rules are few; visit the bars in this order. Each of them. Even Quill's, where your bib will be uniquely marked so our koozie enforcers at the finish line can give you your official FINISHER'S KOOZIE. We will be at the finish line with koozies for 2 hours 15 minutes, or until about 8:20PM. One pull tag, one koozie. 

Awards are for everyone, not just the fast people. Show up in the back bar with a good attitude and you're likely to take away something cool. Yeah, you didn't read it...we are considering a new award format for 2018. 

PURPLE MONKEY DESIGNS tshirts. Each year the shirts are created from snippets found in 1980s Bar-A-Thon flyers. 

After a 3-year series with Molly (MAGWIRE ART) McGuire circus print posters, for 2017 we had a letterpress poster created just for us at New Orleans Letterpress. 

f.p.a. (frequently provided answers)

No, you won't be disqualified if you don't drink beer, and you're free to participate, but we simply don't have the resources to make you anything "heavily bruised" or "neat" or "up". Race has worked well with beer for more than three decades. No need to be cute. 

Yes, we know what a "Social Aid" club was, historically. This is meant to be fun; no disrespect intended. 

No, there won't be any day-of-race registration. However, after online registration closes, creative folks can submit their respective cases to in writing for consideration. On the one hand, it's great that people are registering online, in advance, and saving a few bucks. But it's been so long since the guy wrote the "hot, beer drinking ginger girl" email...and now she's getting married anyway, maybe someone else could show a little initiative. 2017 saw zero creative pleas. 

Yes, you can pick someone else's number up for them, unless you look sketchy or under 21. 


Stop calling Le Bon Temps Roule for answers. They fixed the street outside. They soundproofed the building, they ordered more beer. What more do you ask of them?  Their job is to sell a lot of alcohol and put on good, no-cover shows. They've been doing it for longer than the Bar-a-thon has been running. 

If you want a good bloody at 10AM on race day (or weekends) report to 4801 Magazine. For race information, email or call 504-812-6388. 

are you un-bright? why is it the 37th when you say the race started in 1983? 

Two were run in 1983. Every year since, once a year.
