Riding to bars has definitely been a thing in three of the last four cities I've lived in. The rowdiest was probably a Thursday Cruiser Ride, which consisted of 100+ people in costumes riding around to bars for five hours and getting totally lit. I participated in a few organized bar-hopping rides, but it turns out that they weren't very much fun after I quit drinking.
I'm generally supportive of people riding bikes to go out to bars, especially if it prevents drunk driving. Even with OUI laws, I'm guessing that it takes a lot more alcohol to do damage with a bike than with a car.
