Photo Review: Night of the Living Ales

Sunday night’s Night of the Living Ales pub crawl was quite a crazy time, surpassing all attendance expectations.
The Living Dead overwhelmed some of the small bars on SE 28th Avenue and killed kegs in record times (some in as little as 10-20 minutes). Hopefully everyone had fun, and though myself and co-organizer the Beer Goddess Lisa Morrison had a good time, I was definitely overwhelmed by the crowd and unexpected demand for the Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.

I put out the call for photos from the evening, having had no time to take any myself. I put together a pretty entertaining collection, maybe you will recognize yourself in some of them!

King C. and Amy Welch as King C., can you tell which is which?

The Beer Goddess and King C. or is that Amy Welch as King C. ? You be the judge.

    Cheers Ezra! I had a great time. It was definitely chaotic at times but always fun.

      Was that really the best shot of the 2nd hottest Hooters girl on the crawl? Lame.

      (Even lamer that I forgot my camera altogether.)
