PEDESTRIAN.TV has partnered with Kraken Black Spiced Rum to get you out and about there a lil' more. Head to one of the below joints for a Kraken-based drank that'll help you kick off your night the right way.

There are night’s out, and then there are night’s out. We’re talking about the ball-tearers, people. The ones that begin as seemingly chilled affairs before escalating into something entirely different.

Yes, friendships are forged as well as tested during these evenings. Conversations are more passionate than normal. Everything’s a bit heightened, and it has nothing to do with the drinks you’re putting away (or anything else your cooked mind has just conjured up). They just have a vibe about them that’s stranger than normal – off-kilter, if you will. And normally it has something to do with where these nights start.

Dive bars have been the backbone of hectic ones since, well, who bloody knows how long. And forever shall they remain as such. Do yourself a solid and head to one of these venues at your nearest opportune, because your life – nay, your SOUL – needs the cosmic resetting that only a night beginning at a dive bar can produce.
