Has anyone heard from DIG? I am thinking he might have succumbed to alcohol poisoning.

He may actually still be at the Arena Lounge. They may have set up a cot for him in the corridor in the back.

Just temporarily.

What a great friggin time! Thanks again to everyone who helped make it happen. Even if your only contribution was hanging out, it was still awesome of you to do it. Facebook is being pretty crappy and not letting me upload pics right now, but I'll have mine up at some point. Jamie took some great ones and it looks like Cachorro's from outside Hell's Kitchen captured just a portion of how much fun we were all having.

A few quick stories off the top of my head.

The first thing I saw when I got to Newark Penn was a guy getting escorted out of the men's room in handcuffs. Good omen.

Also, remember my story from March about getting kicked out of a game? I ran into a guy who was sitting two rows in front of us and was one of the few people in that section sticking up for us. He said that when he tried telling security that we hadn't done anything wrong, the ugly troll girl kicked him in the back of the head. Sometimes it just doesn't pay to try to help. Good guy.

Jamie got carded so she could buy a Coke.

Scott and his pizza box.

Bill trying to get the guy at Stadium Bar to take down his two Rangers photos.

The other dude who told me his name was Bill flipping out at Sagres any time he got an update on the Michigan vs. Michigan State game.

Um ... that's all I got off the top of my head. Anyone else?

Another great crawl, this time being *the* highlight of the day, as opposed to one of many highlights, lol. Just wanna send my thanks to DiG, the keeper of the Crawl as it were, for getting these going. And also to everyone who helped plan it, gave input, made the map, and all that. And to everyone for a good time.

I posted the link in the GDT, but I'll throw it here too, pics from the 3rd:

Okay Scott relax haha. You've been yelling about this everyone. We call came into the bar and sat down. No one ordered ANYTHING and the guy asked for Jamie's ID because she looks younger. She didn't have the chance to order anything before she was proofed. And she wasn't the only person that had to take out their ID either.

But anyway, that guy wasn't happy that we were there and I felt bad for him. He had a nice little place.

MMMBello's has an amazing beer selection and I want to go get a Staropramen there ASAP.

BUT IT WAS FUNNY! I was probably like one of the older people there and was still carded. It was good times.... hahahaha Everyone thought it was funny, and I seriously don't care, it made the day entertaining.

Oh I definitely agree the guy was not very nice to us... and the people in the kitchen kept staring at us with nasty looks. It's not like anyone messed anything up. One person was yelling haha. And he was doing it pretty much outside. That guy was anal and you shouldn't have given him a tip. The food there smelled really good though haha.

WHere the hell did someone get carded for a coke? BTW - I heard tons of good things about the Crawl. My Car decided to choke out on me - and I only arrived at Arena at 6PM!!! :-/

I took a few shots of the crowd, not sure who was crawl and who was just there - but I'll be back tonight for the Rangers game. Any of you going?

A great time everyone! Even my Flyers fan buddy enjoyed himself, and the good-natured ball busting. Looking forward to doing it again!

I will be at the Arena Bar for a beer around 6:30 before tonights game if anyone else will be around.

Great time!!!

Anyone care to list their opinions on each of the bars on the bar crawl route -- favorite to least favorite?

Sounds like one of those places was not Devils fan-friendly. Which one was that?

Hell's Kitchen and Arena Lounge are already pretty well-known, so I won't harp on what's already common knowledge.

MMM Bello's is just a cool bar. It's right outside Newark Penn, has a really good house ale (MMM Bello's Ale ... it has a strong hop flavor, reminds me a bit of Sam Adams) and a ridiculous bottled beer selection. I think Jamie might have snapped a few photos of the chalkboards covering one wall with every beer they have. The food there is good, but on Saturday I went to Rio Criz, The Lunch Place next door for lunch. Their chorizo sandwich was unspeakably good.

Sagres is the one that came off as not being Devils fan friendly. It's just a small sidewalk bar with a small kitchen. Definitely not used to (and not prepared for) the bum rush we gave them. Probably not a bad place to stop with a much smaller group looking for drinks and food, preferably on a nice day considering how wide open the place is to the sidewalk.

Stadium Bar needs to take down the two Rangers pics they have. Other than that, it's a total sports bar. Pool table, jukebox, tons of sports photos of everyone from Ken Daneyko to Jack Lambert. Nothing special on the menu or on tap, no fancy seating or lighting or whatever. The way a good sports bar should be.
