Mills 50 is known as “The Intersection of Creativity and Culture”!  Coincidentally, many of the Pokestops in the new Pokemon Go game are located at art installations, murals and cultural icons, which is why Mills 50 has a higher concentration of stops than about any other part of Orlando.  Mills 50 also has a high concentration of entertainment establishments, so it’s only natural for the two to come together at the district’s Poke-Pub Crawl on Thursday July 21!  For only $5 attendees can buy a wristband good for drink specials at Restaurant ASH, Wally’s, Will’s Dirty Laundry, BART, St. Matthew’s Tavern, The Guesthouse, The Brass Tap, Quantum Leap WInery and Ten10 Brewing.  The District will be alive with lures at the 16 PokeStops along the crawl corridor! Trainers:  come out and catch ‘em all.  Non-trainers: come out and catch a buzz (but don’t drive afterwards!)  Wristbands will be sold at Wally’s and Ten10 Brewing starting at 6pm. Lures will be lit from 6pm – 10pm!
