For #DrinkUpFortWorth, we’re issuing a challenge to all the cocktail-crazed Fort Worthians out there. Did you know that you can carry an open container in the Stockyards and around Mule Alleyaka anywhere with red brick. Our team has created a Cowtown cocktail crawl map — so you can enjoy your margarita responsibly + on the go.

To make this Jack-and-Coke journey doable, we’re sticking to recommendations “on the bricks,” but remember to stay on the sidewalk to keep outta trouble. Here are the 15 locations on the official FTWtoday Cowtown Cocktail Crawl.
