Popular Private Pub Crawl Stops In Buffalo Ideas For Your Private Buffalo Pedal Tour Pub Crawl

Identifying where your ideal stops are located is essential. Since most tours start from the Big Ditch Brewery area, that’s where you should begin your tour mapping and figure out how much time you’d like to spend at each destination.

Here are just a few of the favorite stops we have seen as we have done tours around downtown:

Pan-American Grill & Brewery: The Pan-American is a great first stop on your tour. Drinks are always flowing and the atmosphere is conducive to the start of a good time.

67 West: Take your tour down Chippewa and cruise to 67 West. This bar has a chill feel to it and you can have a party with your group while inside, listening to some music or watching one of the sports games.

Pearl Street Grill & Brewery: The fun is overwhelming at Pearl Street. Not only can you try a variety of their delicious craft brews, but there’s also something going on inside. Whether it’s trivia nights, patio parties, pool, darts, and tasty food, you can’t go wrong making this the anchor of your tour and a place to spend a lot of time at.

Confessions of a Buffalo Pub Crawl Driver 3

Confessions of a Pub Crawler Driver 3Buffalo was alive this weekend. There was a great amount of people in town for weddings, the Buffalo Marathon and those great out-of-towners making day trips to Buffalo. With all the excitement, it really made for a super cool weekend downtown.

Most people that live in Buffalo are familiar with our operation by now, so for all these tourists, it was a big deal to see the “Pub Crawler” out and they were full of questions.

I received questions like, “What is this?” and even had wedding parties taking photos on board.

The Big Ditch Brewery Experience

With Big Ditch Brewery now open, it adds another dimension to our tours with guests meeting up there ahead of time having a frosty beverage or two, then stepping outside onto the pub crawler. All of our guests raved about the brewery and the vast majority of groups stopped back in after their tours.

Pub Crawler Showed Off The Red, White & BlueConfessions of a Pub Crawler Driver 3

The patriotism displayed by Pub Crawler riders ranging from flags to shirts, and jewelry, gave the Pub Crawler an awesome look this weekend. I wish this type of patriotism was shown every day, I can’t wait until the 4th of July now!

One of our guests had a GoPro and he set it up front to tape his tour, the footage was amazing. I wish I could share it, but it was a private time with friends and I am sure they wouldn’t want the video making the rounds on social media.

Recommendation for future Buffalo Pedal Tour guests: If someone in your group has a GoPro Camera make sure they bring it!

If you’d like to see a side of the Queen City like you’ve never seen before or visit the special places in glorious style, schedule your tour here today!

Just a friendly reminder as well, we love Buffalo and WNY so much, be on the lookout for our new pedal tour bus at Rochester Pedal Tours. We want you to expect the same type of expert service and fun from the Rochester Pedal Tours as you’ve seen in Buffalo, just in another great, well established city in New York!

Until next time,

Confessions of a Pub Crawler Driver 2

Confessions of a Pub Crawler Driver 2This past weekend was really exciting for Buffalo Pedal Tours. One of the tours we had, included a bachelorette party to Encore. Outside of the bar, a bunch of the Buffalo Bills’ players walked by and were checking out the party bus.

They found the tours to be an interesting concept and I ended up handing out cards to them.

When I was in the bar later in my hoodie (after work), I was pulled aside by a certain star player who ask me, “Hey, you’re the guy with the bar on wheels right?” We get to talking and I give him the spiel about how the pedal bus works and he ended up booking a tour. Major cool points there!

Tours Running On Schedule

When we started this business, the number one problem I imagined was tour members spending too long in the bars, throwing off the schedule. I am very proud to report that all my groups have been prompt about being on time. The simple, “Hey guys its 2:30 now I need to have you guys back here at 3.” has sufficed; I have never even had to shoot a text to the group leader to hurry everyone up.

Be Prepared For The Beautiful Buffalo Weather

The weather this last weekend was absolutely splendid and that made for the tours to be extra special. We always tell people to make sure to wear sneakers, not sandals, and I can’t stress that enough. Make sure you bring some water too, for when the weather is hot out.

The funny story of the weekend had to be when a random passerby on the street tried to jump on a bachelorette party Friday night. Though I understood his excitement, I had to politely explain to him that wasn’t proper pedal tour etiquette and that he shouldn’t try that again.

Friendly Tour Tip: It’s cool if you are out and you see a friend, inviting them on board and they sign the waiver, but jumping on the bike while it’s moving is not good for the party and is a party foul.

Remember if you’d like to enjoy a side of the Nickel City that you’ve never seen before or visit your old favorites in glorious style, schedule your tour here today!

Confessions of a Pub Crawler Driver

Confessions of a Pub Crawler DriverPeople always ask me for some of the crazy stories that I have from all the tours I take out. Believe me there are tons… my favorite stories aren’t about the riders necessarily but are about the reactions people give when they see the “pub crawler”.

Older folk seem to have the hardest time comprehending what they are seeing. Looks of “WTF!” are by far the most common, and seeing people stick their heads out the window of a vehicle to get a second look is the norm.

A common misconception is people saying, “oh cars must hate that you are driving slow…”, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Car drivers and passengers love to take photos, cheer on the riders and high five the guests.

The Bachelorette Game Via Pub Crawler

My favorite story has to do with the woman who wanted to rent the pub crawler and invite 14 dates on, then eliminate them until she was left with one rider (suitor).

The plan didn’t come to fruition because you need a minimum of eight people pedaling to complete a tour, but I salute her for the ingenuity and willing to rent the pub crawler to make her game show like “dream” come true.

Pedal Tour LifeBuffalo Pedal Tour Pub Crawler

Obviously riders get wild and have a good time on board, especially when there’s a solid bell ringer. We can play music and sometimes passengers like using the middle area catwalk as a dance floor. Unfortunately, I don’t get to catch the all the dance party action because I am keeping my eyes on the road.

The Snapchat stories and videos that people show me after make me wish I was taking part in the party aboard.

As a driver, one of the more unique things to see is when tour riders bring food for the ride. A Sunday night tour a few weeks back, had a picnic at Canalside with a five-course feast, which was a super cool idea.

Ultimately, my favorite part of the trip is when we are finishing up and we drive by Tappo Restaurant. Everyone on board the pub crawler starts cheering, ringing the bell, and everyone at Tappo erupts, starts yelling and cheering back!

Those seven seconds are the highlight of my day.

This summer is going to be amazing! I look forward to sharing stories from what is sure to be an eventful season, driving tours.

Cheers,

Philip Szal
