Bars across the city are teaming up for this 10-hour pub crawl — and thankfully, they chartered a bus so you’re not actually crawling come 7 p.m. Johnny Brenda’s and The P.O.P.E. in one night? Don’t even pretend like you’re usually that ambitious of a drunk.

After filming his comedy special at the Troc last year, Michael Ian Black is back with his “Black is White” tour. Also of note: Philly’s Doogie Horner — who you should really know by now for a variety of reasons, but sure, let’s go with “America’s Got Talent” — rounds out the bill.
