We’re all familiar with concepts like food walk, pub crawl and so on, and it has been long since I was part of any such event. I guess the last one was Food Walk at UB City where we covered close to 6 restaurants in two days. FBAI Drinks Pub Crawl was my first Pub crawl event (yes am serious 😀 ) thanks to Sameer and Salloni – founders of FBAI who along with Roshan from Aspri Spirits and Mitali from Morning Fresh for pulling this one out so well! The location was set to Indiranagar’s 12th Main area and it is one of those streets in Bangalore where you can probably find pubs at every 10 meters. The idea was simple – cover three pubs, grab a unique drink at each one of them, top it up with a magic potion that’ll cure your hangover, socialise with fellow bloggers and yeah, eat some great food on the go!
