We’ve got a preview of the JASP pub crawl, plus updates and a handy packing list
By Ashley Oldham
The Jane Austen Summer Program is bringing back its popular pub crawl for the fourth year in a row. It’s a great way for attendees to unwind, relax, and meet other Austen fans outside of the usual conference activities!
According to organizer Anne Fertig, the pub crawl allows JASP-ers to “see the best bars that Chapel Hill and Carrboro have to offer, all guided by our graduate student volunteers.” Fertig adds: “It’s even become a bit of a tradition for us to visit the local taco truck after the last bar.”
This year’s crawl features three stops: B-Side Lounge, Belltree, and Dead Mule Club. Each pub will offer one or two Austen-themed cocktails just for JASP-ers.
If you want to join the pub crawl, just ask to sign up at the JASP registration desk when you check in on Thursday. You can join us for one bar ($15), two bars ($20) or all three stops ($40).
Need more enticement? Just take a look at the menu:
Registration will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday. Follow signs to the JASP registration desk toward the back of the hotel on the ground floor.
If there are any extras you want to purchase (T-shirts, the pub crawl, etc.), you can do so on-site when you check in Thursday.
If you’re getting ready to pack, here’s a list of things to bring!
