Austin Pokemon Bar Crawl Attracts Over 2,400 Central Texas Trainers
I know, I know. I keep talking about Pokemon. I'm sorry! I guess I have the Pokebug.
But I wanted to let y'all know about a little adventure I went on in Austin, Friday night. It was the city's first official Pokecrawl ATX 2016 and in case you're worried about being one of the only nerds out there, worry no more - there were over 2,400 Pokemon trainers in attendance.
It literally felt like SXSW on 6th St. near downtown Austin as police blocked off the street to keep it safe for all of the people walking and staring at their phones.
What I loved about the event was that you could find people from all walks of life - all enjoying the same thing. Families, high school teenagers, college students, young professionals and even the older crowd were moving from business to business, catching digital creatures and meeting people you may never have run into without this phenomenon.
The next step is to have someone arrange a Pokecrawl out in Temple, Belton or Killeen. I know there are plenty of us Central Texans always on the prowl for a chance to catch the legendary Dragonite!
