The human being is a social creature that craves safety in numbers. This fact is most evident during holiday-themed events like the third-annual Ugly Sweater Bar Crawl presented by Over-the-Rhine's 16 Bit Bar+Arcade, which returns this Saturday.
While “ugly” is subjective, there’s no shortage of tacky holiday-themed sweaters that might not be at the height of fashion these days and, with the purchase of a ticket, participants are treated to drink specials and fun holiday activities with other thirsty, similarly garbed partygoers (not to mention a commemorative T-shirt and koozie).
The crawl starts at 16-Bit Bar+Arcade and will, well, crawl across OTR to around a dozen other bars, many of which will only admit ticket holders during the festivities. Additional stops include MOTR Pub, Drinkery OTR, Revel OTR, The Hub, The Rook OTR and more.
2-10 p.m. Saturday. $22.50. 16 Bit Bar+Arcade, 1331 Walnut St., Over-the-Rhine, 16-bitbar.com/cincy.
