Pub Crawl Replaces Iowa State Fair East Side Night

It's hard to believe that we're supposed to be at the Iowa State Fair right now. Like, tonight we're supposed to be celebrating East Side night!!!! Originally, upon hearing the fair wouldn't happen, some loyal East Siders got together for a planned event tonight at Sleepy Hollow Sports Park. At the same time, Adventureland booked Hairball for tonight (an East Side favorite), they didn't think they could compete, so they cancelled the event.

If you don't want to leave the East Side, but still want to celebrate your East Side pride, you can participate in tonight's East Side Pub Crawl. The pub crawl will run from around 4pm to 10pm and will take you to five different East Side spots including: Kelly's Little Nipper, Eastside Eddie's, McCuen's Pub, Toad's Tavern, and Misfit's Pub and Grub. To help with safe social distancing, there is no set schedule where patrons go from one place to another at the same time. Instead, East siders are encouraged to go from spot to spot at different times. If you buy a $3 koozie at Misfits, you will get drink specials at each stop on the pub crawl. Proceeds will benefit East High School.

If you're not comfortable participating in the pub crawl, but you're a proud East Sider, you're encouraged to drive by the bars and honk in support!
