Come Bar Crawl with Me and Espolón Tequila on Dia De Los Muertos

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

This is a special time of the year in San Francisco. Not only are the Giants absolutely mopping up in the World Series, but Halloween is almost upon us, and Dia de Los Muertos is right on it’s tail. This year Espolón Tequila has asked me to be the San Francisco brand ambassador for the first official Day of the Dead barcrawl throughout the Mission! Does this have my name (and honestly your name) written all over it or what?

Throughout the night (specifically 8pm-midnight for you more detailed oriented readers) we’re gonna float through the Mission, while hitting up three different bars, who are each creating a special Espolón Tequila drink just for us. Here’s how it’s gonna play out:

Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem will be making Palomas (Espolón  Blanco, Fresh Grapefruit, Fresh Sage, Fresh Lemon, Agave Nectar and Ginger Beer)
Doc’s Clock will have Paloma special as well as a Espolón  shot and a beer special
Elbo Room will have an Espolón Blanco shot with Tecate and a Espolón Reposado Paloma Special


Plus, there will even be face painters at each location to Day of the Dead-ify your face in case you neglected to dress up (yes, that was me implying that you should dress up. I mean, it is San Francisco after all).

Also, the event is FREE to attend! All you gotta do to get in on those drink specials is show up. So, is it safe to assume I’ll be seeing you at 8pm at Dr. Teeth? I thought so.

Espolón Day of the Dead Pub Crawl
Friday, November 2nd
Dr. Teeth, Doc’s Clock, & The Elbo Room

I have been compensated by Campari America for participation in this program. If you want to compensate me to party with you too, please email me at I’m really good at partying.
