Last summer we made the somewhat on-the-spot decision to reach out to Mike McAllister, the man behind Epic Development and the Tapped pop-up beer garden series (and now the Urbanist guide). We had been to a few of the Tapped events and wanted to get in on the action. This led to the overwhelmingly successful Tapped: Braddock in October, the final Tapped event of 2012, but it also led to a lasting partnership between ourselves, Mike, Bar Marco, and Fukuda (more on that later). And now we’re pleased to announce that we’re all back for a bigger and better Tapped series in 2013, beginning with Double Tapped.
DOUBLE TAPPED, PART I: BAR MARCO
WHAT: The first leg of Double Tapped, complete with live music and shenanigans.
WHEN: 10am- 3pm
WHERE: Bar Marco, 2216 Penn Ave. (in the Strip District)
FOOD: Good ol’-fashioned St. Patty’s food. Corned beef, cabbage, and all that lovely stuff.
DRINK: Beer by Full Pint, Arsenal Cider, plus Irish whiskey punch by Bar Marco
COST: $10 entry (can be purchased here via Showclix), food and drinks sold by Bar Marco
DOUBLE TAPPED, PART II: FUKUDA
WHAT: The second leg of Double Tapped, complete with a DJ and EVEN MORE SHENANIGANS.
WHEN: 4pm- 9pm
WHERE: Fukuda, 4770 Liberty Ave (in Bloomfield)
FOOD: Japanese street food. Delicious yet hard-to-pronounce favorites, fresh off the grill.
DRINK: Beer by Full Pint.
COST: Free entry. Food and beer sold by Fukuda.
So for everyone that has been fervently holding out through the winter for the return of Tapped: it’s back in all of its glory with much, much more to come.
