2014 RT Convention Preview: Publishing Pub Crawl

We sure are getting excited to head to NOLA for the 2014 RT Booklover’s Convention. We have so much awesome stuff planned! We’ve already covered the new LGBT track and the Reader Events happening on Tuesday. And today, we’ve got the Publishing Pub Crawl RT say what?! Yes, that’s right, RT is teaming up with a slew of publishers for some boozy fun!

Starting at 6:30 PM on Thursday, May 15, convention attendees will be split into groups to start the pub crawl from different locations on Bourbon Street. With trusty maps in hand, crawlers will make their way to and through various bars and pubs, where different sponsors await. Each sponsor will hand out beaded necklaces emblazoned with their logo, which crawlers pick up at each stop. Participants must collect at least seven necklaces to be eligible for a yet-to-be-announced-but-definitely-awesome prize. The crawl ends at 8:30 PM, just in time for Samhain Publishing’s big Sinners & Saints party back at the hotel. What a great way to get the night started, no?

More details on the Pub Crawl will be announced as we get closer to May. Meanwhile, visit RTConvention.com for all the latest 2014 RT Convention news!
