WHAT: A historic bar crawl through downtown Indianapolis exploring stories of Cold War. Attendees will visit four different locations in groups, nosh on thematically appropriate snacks and imbibe on drinks provided by Sun King Brewing Company.

After a top-secret briefing (along with some complimentary beer and food to whet your appetite), groups will travel to the following locations before ending up back at the IndyFringe Theatre for an after-party:

  • St. Mary's Church
  • Union 50
  • Two mystery locations 

WHO: Bring your comrades, colleagues and co-conspirators! When you register please indicate if you are registering with a group, via the notes section. Groups will be assigned the night of the event.
