Recapping yesterday's Movember bar crawl
For a few hours yesterday, I joined dozens and dozens of mustache-clad revelers for a South Baltimore swill-fest commonly known as ... MOVEMBER!
As you can tell from the photo, it was quite awesome. And money was raised to help fight the fight against prostate cancer.
I met up with the crawlers at the tequila bar Lime (801 E. Fort Ave.), which was clearly not prepared to handle the flood of 50-some wild and crazy kids. It was jammed wall-to-wall.
After about an hour at Lime, we headed down to Hideaways (1400 Key Highway), the new bar across the street from Little Havana, which recently replaced the Tavern on Key ...
Though Hideaways' new co-owner Dave Benton said the place was totally different, I thought it looked largely the same -- just with a new paint job. That's OK though, because the owner had stacked six-packs of Natty Boh as a monument to Movember. All hail Movember.
For the low low fee of $25, the crawlers got a T-shirt, aviators, a fake mustache (if they didn't already have a natural one), raffle drawings and $1 Natty Bohs, among other drink specials. Now that's what I call a deal, folks.
Post-Hideaways, the crowd had grown too large for one joint, so we split into two factions. One went to Rafters (620 E. Fort Ave.), and the other went to Captain Larry's (601 E. Fort Ave.). I opted for Captain Larry's, because it was the less cramped of the two.
Midnight Sunner Evan, who organized the crawl, was dumbstruck with the sheer awesomeness of his creation. He stumbled about, sipping a Boh and babbling about mustaches. Or wait, maybe that was me.
