5 Reasons for Your Readers to Get Sideways in DTLA thisSaturday, 8/23
1. FREE CRAWL FORMAT
Crawl at your own pace! With all bars pouring at the same time, it’s impossible to get left behind. Whether participants start on Spring St. (Beelman’s Pub, Spring St. Bar) or on Hope St. (Library Bar, Sixth St. Tavern), stumbling through each spot is elementary.
2. FRITO CHILI PIE
Three of everyone’s favorite things, together, in a bowl, or possibly a bag, and that’s after the Caroline Style Pulled Pork Sliders, the Rockenwagner Pretzel w/ Beer Cheese, the Cuban Sandwich, and the Gravy Fries.
3. POKER RAFFLE
Each of the five bars earn crawlers a playing card, and the top poker hands when the bell tolls at King Eddy Saloon will win prizes including a stash of King Eddy t-shirts bearing its eloquent mantra “Where No One Gives a S*** About Your Name.” Nobody said you had to stay sober to beat the house.
4. DIRTY 90’s DANCE PARTY
No matter how one crawls it, chugs it, or grubs it, the road ends at King Eddy Saloon. A very sideways dance party awaits legends of the crawl who make it past levels one through four.
5. GET BLITZED AT BEELMAN’S PUB
ACME Hospitality Group’s latest pub is crowdsurfing its way through positive press and quickly becoming the next great Historic Core hangout. See what it’s all about through the aromatic Beefeater gin cocktail the bartender just slapped in your hand.
The multi-faceted, highly integrated hospitality company formed by partners William Shamlian, Michael Leko, and Jonny Valenti, who met over 20 years ago while working together at the now infamous Mezzaluna restaurant in Brentwood, California. With over 75 years of collective hospitality experience, the three partners developed their individual skill sets by working in every conceivable hospitality position, from dishwasher to general manager. The partners followed their individual paths until fate brought them back together to establish one of the premier hospitality groups in Los Angeles and New York. To date, ACME continues to reimagine the hospitality landscape, with a strong presence in Downtown L.A., ever mindful of the public’s unquenchable quest for something new. Their establishments include Beelman’s Pub, Sixth St. Tavern, Library Bar, Spring St. Bar, King Eddy Saloon, and Laurel Tavern in Los Angeles; Los Feliz and Spitzer’s Corner in New York City.
