Folly Gras may not be happening this year, but there’s more than one way to get your Fat Tuesday fix. Organizers have put together The Mardi Gras Bar Crawl to fill the void. Six locations on King Street are joining in for a night of drinking and fun on February 22. Participants can check in at The Brick from 1pm to 4pm. All you have to do is get your scorecard marked at each bar along the way. And, of course, drink as much as you want!
The first 400 crawlers to check-in will get a signature Mardi Gras Bar Crawl koozie. And the first 250 crawlers to finish the Crawl with a completed scorecard will get a custom T-shirt. Photographers will be there to capture the fun for you. Also, multiple locations will have DJs. Drink specials include $4 Tito’s and $3 Bud Lights, with more to be announced.
You can get tickets here. VIP ticket holders are able to check in an hour earlier, and will also receive a complimentary drink. A portion of all ticket sales will support the Charleston Animal Society
With a little luck, organizers hope this could be a new Mardi Gras tradition for the Lowcountry.
