Scranton has hosted its share of bar crawls over the years, and the city is no stranger to waking up early to drink on Parade Days, but this summer will bring its first-ever Mimosa Bar Crawl.

Downtown bars and restaurants like Backyard Ale House, Harry’s, Noir Dark Spirits, PJ’s Pub 1910 at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center, and The Railyard will participate in the inaugural 21+ event inspired by the mimosa, a cocktail typically made with champagne and orange juice. It is set to run from noon-5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 8, and more venues will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets, which are $15 for general admission and $28 for admission and a T-shirt, are on sale now via Prekindle. Each ticket includes entry to all bars on the crawl, one free mimosa at any venue, and live entertainment at each location. Those who purchase advance tickets online save $10 off the door price.

Check-in begins at 11 a.m. at a welcome booth in the parking lot next to Noir (244 Penn Ave., Scranton) on the corner of Linden Street and Penn Avenue. Bar and restaurant doors open at noon, and registration ends at 2 p.m. For more details, visit the Facebook event page or send questions to

The organizers of the Mimosa Bar Crawl are AZ Food Festivals and DamnMillennial Promotions, a local concert promoter that typically books shows in the Scranton area at venues like Stage West, the Circle Drive-In Theatre, and Montage Mountain. Both are also teaming up for the inaugural Scranton Taco & Margarita Fest on Saturday, July 31 at the Circle Drive-In. Tickets for that new event, which are $10-$45, are on sale now via Prekindle.

Gates at the Circle Drive-In (1911 Scranton/Carbondale Hwy., Dickson City) open at 11 a.m., and the all-ages festival runs until 5 p.m. and features “over 10 of Scranton’s best restaurants, food trucks, and carts serving up an amazing variety of mouthwatering tacos and related food items,” according to the organizers.

“There will be bars and beverage stations serving margaritas, tequila shots, ice cold beer, water, soda, and more.”

In addition, live bands and DJs will provide entertainment throughout the day. To learn more, see the Facebook event page.
