By Land and by Sea
Two new experiences for drinkers on the go
Oh, and it's a lot of fun, too.
But, again like church, it can fall into too much of a routine. Sometimes you have to shake things up a bit. Maybe move out of the pews and into a big-tent revival. Or rather, get off the bar stool and move around some.
No, I don't mean go to the parking lot for a smoke. I mean really move around, like I did on a couple of recent occasions – by land and by sea.
My drinking adventures came courtesy of a couple of local entrepreneurs: Bats & Beers and PubCrawler of Austin. The former did everything for me: a cruise, floating me around Lady Bird Lake while I quaffed local microbrewery beers and ate good food. The latter required a bit of work pedaling a bicycle – of sorts – but it was worth the effort.
