This Gives New Meaning to ‘Pub Crawl’

Imagine a floating mahogany bar pedaling at its own pace, enjoying monumental views.  Sounds like a Happy Hour gone hipster… and we’re here for it!

Potomac Paddle Pub, not even a month old, is the city’s only passenger pedal boat cruising the Potomac from the Georgetown waterfront.  The 90-minute cruise departs from the Georgetown Waterfront and travels to Columbia Island Marina for a rest stop before continuing down the Potomac in front of monuments and landmarks.

16 people can “ride” — though ten of them will have to propel it with pedal power.  (Don’t worry – it’s not all Flintstones-y… it also has a motor, a captain, and two deck hands to help.)  Onboard you’ll find coolers and ice, though you’ll have to bring your own beer, wine or soft drinks (no alcohol) and anything you’ll want to be eating during your day — or night — on the water.

Pedal-ing’s the new power hour.
