Flying Saucer to host 5th annual Stumbling Elvis Pub Crawl on Saturday

August 08, 2014 By: mike Category: Craft beer, Events, Memphis

Flying SaucerThe Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Downtown Memphis will host its fifth annual Stumbling Elvis Pub Crawl on Saturday, Aug. 9, benefiting FedExFamilyHouse.

The festivities, which coincide with Elvis Week and involve drinking lots of good craft beer, will start at the Flying Saucer, 130 Peabody Place, at 7 p.m. From there, the pub crawl will move to several other downtown bars, including Blind Bear, Cafe Keough, Alfred’s and Purple Haze. Participants are invited to come dressed in their best Elvis or Priscilla attire, and folks will end the crawl back at the Saucer.

Sign up is free at the door, but monetary donations for FedExFamilyHouse are encouraged. Participants are also asked bring non-perishable snack food items (like snack crackers, fruit snacks, granola bars, etc.) and/or a new, stuffed animal to donate to the organization, which offers free accommodations for out-of-town families of patients at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

“Elvis Week is a big deal in Memphis, and we’re excited to host our annual Stumbling Elvis Pub Crawl again this year to celebrate and support FedExFamilyHouse,” said Kirk Caliendo, general manager of Flying Saucer. “Every year, hundreds of Elvis lookalikes participate in this event, and we thought it would be fun to add some Priscillas to the mix this year. We hope everyone will come out to support this great cause.”
