This weekend the Pilsen neighborhood will once again welcome the Cantina Crawl a celebration of local establishments and their specialty drinks, produced by the folks behind Pilsen Fest.
It’s expected that more than 1,500 crawlers will participate in the six-hour celebration which features 10 bars beginning with Simone’s on 18th Street and ending at Martin’s in West Pilsen. This is all made easily accessible to participants as trolleys transport revelers from one location to the next.
Participating businesses include: The Barrel, Caminos de Michoacan, Alulu Brewpup, Twisted Cantina, Harbee Liquors, Honky Tonk BBQ, La Vaca Margarita Bar and Tack Room.
In addition to specialty drinks provided by each participating location’s mixologist, the Crawl includes music, games and even live entertainment. Plus, each specialty cocktail will be judged by participants and the winning establishment will be awarded a prize.
A very limited amount of tickets are still available for purchase here.

All monies produced by this event will help fund the annual Pilsen Festival.
