Local gamer Jeff Ramos is organizing the event via Facebook… Within 24 hours of Ramos posting the event, nearly 150 people had signed up. Another 700 or so had indicated they were interested.
The Saturday crawl will begin at Spritzenhaus, a German beer garden located at Nassau Avenue and Guerney Street, along the northern edge of McCarren Park. The park is home to a Pokemon Gym, where players can train their Pokemon to be better fighters.
Next, the group plans to head north on Manhattan Avenue and west on Greenpoint Avenue, hitting more gyms between drinks at Bar Matchless, Enid’s, No Name Bar, Sunshine Laundromat and Black Rabbit. (And doughnuts at Peter Pan, of course.)
Once everyone is nice and sloshed, the crawl will end at Transmitter Park on the Greenpoint waterfront, where — according to Ramos — “tons of water Pokemon” have been hiding.
