Shots offers Valentine’s Day alternative

Casey Downey

Shots, First Call and Pub Crawl, is offering an alternative way to spend Valentines Day. Stag on State Street is a “single’s appreciation” pub crawl where downtown drink specials, performing acts and cover fees are lined out at the start of the night. This tour will feature downtown businesses: Entourage, 440 Main, Burger and Bun, Dublins and Tidballs. This crawl will be self-guided, so participants can roam freely.

“You could potentially feel down about one’s relationship, or lack thereof one at the time,”said Shots owner Chris Abend. “So what we would like to do is provide an outlet, kind of give something to do on a night that is so dominated by the idea and the pseudo-holiday.”

The pub crawl is a free event. All patrons are welcome to stop by, as long as they are at least 21 and drink responsibly. Shots is located on State Street behind Mellow Mushroom and will be open from 8:30-midnight.
