Let the Pokemon Go pub crawls begin

Adult Pokemon fans are getting ready to come together, raise a few glasses and then catch them all!

Pikachu, I choose you, as my drinking buddy.

Just because you can now buy a beer doesn't mean you can't become the very best...like no one ever was.

One week after the launch of Pokemon Go, the game is already bringing people of all walks together for drinks and pocket monster catching.

A Brooklyn pub crawl is set for July 23, as spotted by Brokelyn, which features three very straight-forward reasons to attend on its Facebook event page: 1. Meet local players. 2. Drink tons of booze. 3. Capture some new Pokemon.

New York City isn't the only place where adult Pokemon Go fans can get their drink on. A quick search on Facebook for "Pokemon Go Pub Crawl" Monday afternoon brings up listings for events in San Francisco, Colorado Springs, Colorado and even Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

And after the party is over, who says you need to stop playing Pokemon Go. As spotted by Gizmodo, a few ride-share entrepreneurs are offering via Craiglist ads to drive Pokemon Go players around cities such as New York, Portland and Baltimore at $20-$30 per person.

Plus, while major ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft are not currently offering Pokemon Go services, a Reddit user claims that he and his Uber driver bonded over Pokemon Go, leading to an unsanctioned journey past 15-20 PokeStops.
