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!

Attendees receive a set of wine charms.

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:
