[This month's GQB is a special edition transit pub crawl.  Most of these bars are difficult to park at, but MetroRapid will solve this problem for us! All bars are easily accessible from the MetroRapid stations.  Ride the RapidBus from your nearest MetroRapid station and join us at the first bar (or any of the bars) on our schedule.  How do you get to the MetroRapid system?  You can drive, bike, walk, take a local bus or MetroRail to your nearest MetroRapid station.  Be sure to buy at least a $3 Premium Pass so that you can ride MetroRapid unlimited during our event.  This pass will work on local buses too.  You can purchase it on MetroRapid or on a local bus with cash.  Rail riders can use their Commuter Pass to ride MetroRapid.  You can also use your smartphone to purchase a pass, but give yourself a few minutes to setup your account with your credit card: .  For more details on MetroRapid, a system map, and list of stations: -- rcm]
