Have a Merry Scary Time on Downtown El Paso Burial Grounds Bar Crawl
If you're looking for a merry and scary way to experience a handful of the downtown bars, the Downtown Burial Grounds Bar Crawl may be just the thing for you.
Lost El Paso Paranormal is leading the two-hour cemetery-themed event on Saturday, December 18, 2021.
Per the event post, there have been numerous cemeteries, gravesites, and burying grounds in the area that have been built over and the supernatural adventure promises to “uncover the buried history of Downtown El Paso.”
The lantern-lit walking tour features spine-tingling tales and, of course, liquid courage as you get your spook on. It is a bar crawl, after all.
Lost El Paso Paranormal founder and costumed tour guide Heather Shade says guests will meet up at the Briar Patch/Hyde Patio Bar, which is reportedly home to several restless spirits. Employees have had many strange experiences in this location, according to Shade.
In one instance, a young lady was seen entering the restroom, and when she had not emerged after a long while, employees went to check on her. They found the door was locked from the inside, and there was no response to their calls. The door had to be forcibly removed, only to reveal a totally empty restroom with no one inside.
The evening of seeking spirits of both the ghost and alcoholic variety will end at B-17 Bombers Oyster Pub, where Shade said customers and employees have claimed to see an apparition of a woman in a long old-fashioned dress standing in the back hallway staring out onto the bar area.
Various staff members have experienced other unexplained phenomena since the place was renovated and B-17 moved in several years ago.
One afternoon a bartender got quite a scare when someone or something started banging on the drums that were up on the stage, Heather related to me. When the person turned and looked, no one was on the stage. Bartenders have also told us that there are times when they are alone, but feel like they are being watched.
“There is definitely a vibe in the place,” Shade concludes. For tickets, times, and the meet up location visit the Lost El Paso Paranormal website.
