RPMâ€™S LIGHT RAIL PUB CRAWL is at it again! â€œSame shirt, a second serving of funâ€ say the guys at Responsible Partying Made Simple. At the request of the patrons, on Saturday, 11 April 2009 from 4 â€“ 11 pm, RPMâ€™S is bringing back the Light Rail Pub Crawl! Metro-Phoenix residents will experience a variety of nightlife flavors. Stretching from Phoenixâ€™s Camelback/Central light rail station to Tempeâ€™s Apache/McClintock station, they will enjoy local nightlife diversity ranging from the stylish, laid back, Switch Restaurant & Wine Bar to the â€œCheers-likeâ€ atmosphere of the ROC Bar.
â€œThe event was such a huge success in February,â€ said organizer of the event, Merlin U Ward, â€œeveryone wanted to do it again! Bar owners and patrons alike. Itâ€™s a great give-back to the phoenix businesses and really shows the number of patrons who would like to see the light rail run later.â€
Around the metropolitan area, several locations will offer extended happy hours and exclusive drink specials during the event to patrons wearing the official RPMâ€™S pub crawl T-shirt (â€œtheir ticketâ€). Anyone who has a shirt from the last event is invited out to participate again. There is no fixed schedule; all patrons are able to customize which locations they want to visit based on their own likes and tastes. Some of the confirmed locations and list of nearest stations are:
