A poster for the Lunar New Year bar crawl in Memphis.

Good Fortune Co. is partnering with South Main Memphis restaurants to host a month-long bar crawl—and the kick-off party for the festivities will feature a live Lion Dance performance. Doors open at 3PM. Showtime’s at 4PM. 

This bar crawl comes with a task that’s well worth the reward at the end of it all! You’ve got 22 days to try three Lunar New Year inspired cocktails—and collect all 6 “Bunny Dollars.” One cocktail = 2 Bunny Dollars. Once you complete the crawl, head back to Good Fortune Co. to turn in your earnings in exchange for a custom t-shirt to commemorate the occasion!

Participating restaurants include:
