Slideshow: New Times Back to School Pub Crawl, 8/24/12

If ASU's Manzanita Hall can come back looking better than ever, your ability to rebound from recent couch potato status is looking pretty good. And lucky for your soon-to-be out and about self, there's plenty to keep you busy this weekend in the Valley of the Sun.

New Times Back to School Pub Crawl @ Tempe Marketplace
Back to school blues? We've got you covered. To ease the pain of your fall semester woes, New Times is kicking off the school year right with the second installment of the Back to School Pub Crawl. This year's featured stops include Dave & Buster's, Cadillac Ranch, Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill, and Bar Louie. Barhopping patrons can pursue their route in any order they see fit, claiming one adult drink ticket at each stop as well as one playing card for their prized poker hand. Collect all five cards throughout the crawl and turn in your hand at the end of the night for a chance to win a free trip to Las Vegas.

We did the bar crawl last night. It was fun, but you need to work on getting better sponsors. Bud Light and UV Vodka doesn't really excite me. Each bar should offer drinks that make them special and gives me a reason to come back. We will had fun, though.
