The monthly “Unwind Downtown Pub & Culture Crawl” will be happening simultaneously with the Thursday Night Trolley so those that are interested in exploring downtown bars and restaurants featured on this month’s event can also jump on the Pub Busses to take them around downtown.  Dinner is available at a variety of downtown locations, including the Roadkill Bar and Grill @ artspace, Abby Singers in Robinson Film Center, and the Noble Savage Tavern.

If you look closely, you may also see James Dean and Audrey Hepburn, as they walk amongst the crowd promoting the upcoming “Artscare Dead Celeb Ball.”
