Pub crawl (Evening)
You might be surprised to know that San Jose actually has some night life these days!!! If you haven’t been in the area in the past 10 or 15 years, you’ll enjoy our walk (or ‘crawl’!) to see how the city is changing. Even if you’re local, you’ll have a great time as we visit some local brew pubs and tap rooms, reminisce about our time in ‘The House’, and make new friends along the way!
After an early evening BBQ in the patio of the I-House (starting at ???pm), the group will depart on foot around 7:30pm, for a visit to the Uproar Brewing Company on 1st Street. We’ll then make another stop or two on our way to the San Pedro Square Market for a snack. Don’t worry if beer isn’t your thing, it’s about getting together, socializing and seeing the changes in San Jose!
