Brew de Mayo
While revelers around the world celebrated Cinco de Mayo, the traditional Mexican holiday, pub-goers in Monroe were treated to celebrations with a Louisiana twist. Monroe Renaissance, BayouLife Magazine, Lamar Outdoor and the Radio People sponsored Bayou de Mayo, a pub crawl to five of downtown’s hottest nightspots.
Throughout the evening, crawlers strolled and trollied from Restaurant Cotton to River & Rail, Shananigans, Enochs and NEAT. At each stop, visitors had their pub passport stamped and at the end of the night had a chance to win a kayak provided by Marsala Beverage and Shock Top.
Each stop along the crawl provided a touch of respite, a signature drink and just a little touch of the Bayou de Mayo spirit. Downtown Renaissance holds pub crawls every two months throughout the year.
