October 6, 2018, Saturday - Hocus Pocus Bar Crawl

Hocus Pocus Bar Crawl

Winnie, Mary, and Sarah. The gang is all here! Celebrate the greatest Halloween movie of all time with a Flip Phone bar crawl.

Dress up as your favorite Sanderson Sister or Hocus Pocus inspired look. We will kick-off the day at the Pourhouse where we will attempt to gather the most witches in one room. At the Pourhouse there will be dancing, drag + burlesque shows, and a grand costume contest. After that, we will split into four teams (Winifred, Sarah, Mary, and Thackery Binx) and hit Minneapolis bars.

Pick your team (your costume DOES NOT have to correspond with your team, make sure everyone in your party is on that team) and you'll get a schedule of bars/events for the day. We will release this information a week before the event.

Bar Schedule:

10:30 AM- 12:30 PM: The Pourhouse (All teams)

12:30 PM- 4:30 PM: Union Rooftop, Mercy, The Saloon, and TBD

4:30 PM- ??- After party at The Saloon

10% of all drink sales will benefit OutFront Minnesota.

There will be surprises at each venue! We are planning Hocus Pocus karaoke, Hocus Pocus drag performances, Hocus Pocus trivia, tarot card readers, dance parties and more. You'll be entertained by some of the city's top DJ's and performers.

We will release more information as we get closer. The entire bar crawl is 21+

If you would like to pre-order a limited edition Hocus Pocus Bar Crawl T-Shirt, you can do so on this page. All t-shirts must be picked up at the crawl. Please note, that Team + GG Bar Crawl T-shirts include admission to the bar crawl and a limited edition t-shirt.

You must have tickets to the bar crawl to enter any of the participating venues.
