Bar Crawls in Arlington: Benefits and Challenges

Committee of 100 Meeting - September 10, 2014

Bar crawls are becoming increasingly popular for many Arlington residents and a good source of revenue for Arlington businesses.  However, the good times also come with some challenges, from crowd control and disruptions for nearby residents to safety risks and dangerous incidents.  Join us at our September meeting to hear about these issues and how our community can balance the benefits and challenges of bar crawls.

Greg Cahill of Whitlow's on Wilson, will provide the business perspective - how a business participates and what the benefits and concerns are for the County from his point of view. 

Loria Porcaro, President of the Lyon Village Civic Association, who will share perspectives from residents of the nearby neighborhood and the problems that arise from bar crawls.

Michael Dunne, Deputy Chief of Operations of the Arlington County Police Department, will tell us about the role of the police during bar crawls.
