Officially it's back on ~ Germantown beer walk [Germantown/Schnitzelburg]

Print
So check it...after a few week push back it's officially here.  The Germantown beer walk is this Saturday, May 8th, and once again we can wander the streets with open containers and frequent our favorite neighborhood bars.  A number of these places will have live music, others will have tents set up in the streets for karaoke, and some will be serving food.  At any given time during the evening you can simply walk in off the street and grab yourself a beer, mixed drink, or a shot. Whatever fits your fancy.  It's all going to be there.
 
I grew up on the 900 block Mulberry street, just a few blocks from where the magic goes down once the sun sets.  Don't get me wrong, for some it starts earlier than that, but a good indicator of when this neighborhood block party will get fat is sometime shortly after dark. Even as a kid we hit this thing up, and ran the streets and alleys alike.  It was the eighties and early nineties then, a time when Mo's corner store was still at the corner of Texas & Mulberry, and when my younger brother and I could buy my mom cigarettes with enough cash and a note asking the owner to please sell them to us.  It was a different time, no doubt, but those days created a Germantown pride that rings loud in my ears every time I hear of something good going down in the hood.        
 
If you're pure Germantown or ever attended this thing then you already know what's going down and you'll be there.  If you're on the fence and not sure what you have going for the upcoming weekend then my suggestion would be to make the trip down to Germantown and grab yourself a drink.  What's the worse thing that could happen? You could find yourself a bit tipsy, laughing and hanging out with down to earth, good and honest people that like to give it up for their neighborhood and catch a buzz.  The bars included start as far over as Charles & Krieger at the Nach Bar, and work their way back over towards Goss avenue with the Germantown Cafe & Schnitzelburg.  From there it keeps going, you have the 19th Hole, Flabby's & Old Hickory Inn, and further down you have Check's Cafe, Zeppelin Cafe, and Club 21. Be sure to show up and support your local Germantown bars this weekend, because without patrons like us, there is no them.
