Six-Pack Ride Around Philly
I read in this forum a little while back about a 'Six-Pack Ride'. Wherein you get a number of people together, each of whom bring a six-pack. You stand in a circle and each place one of your beers in the middle, taking turns selecting one, and whomever gets last pick gets to pick the place you all drink the next beer. I had been meaning to do it for a while and finally got enough people interested to do it last night. It was an amazing time. Everyone sharing the spots that mean something to them around the city.
We had one Bass, one Corona (with lime), one Smithwick's, and two Lagers.
The itinerary was:
A friend's house at 10th and Callowhill;
The Biopond on Penn's Campus;
The Train Overpass by Grey's Ferry;
The top of the steps of The Museum of Art;
And my roof at 23rd & Spring Garden just as the sun was coming up.
It was an incredible time. I strongly encourage you guys out there to try it with some friends.
Also, anyone in Philly looking for something to do next Friday or Saturday? I'm trying to get another one of these to happen.
I'm down for anything anytime in this city that isn't drinking related.
I guess the SxE equivilant to the six pack ride would be each kid brings a hxc cd and one kid brings a boombox. then you put the boombox in a circle and play your favorite jam, and last person standing after the soon-to-follow mosh gets to pick the next place you boombox mosh jam in...
haha i love it, or it can just be six packs of ginger ale (canada dry preferably)

I'd be up for this, though I've only lived here for 3 weeks & don't have too many meaningful places to share just yet. But I've got beer, so that's something.
rode several six pack parades in neworleans...
would love to do somelthing like this in philly.
This is a pretty sweet idea. I'd love to do it, if the proper alignment of the stars allows me to ever find the time to.
