101 Libations

To celebrate a graduation, and because it's something we love to do, B & Scoot embarked on a road trip in July 2009 to go barhopping in Nebraska. We spent months preparing, but with some last minute changes plus a few towns with a lot of choices, we also made some of it up as we went. Our journey would end up taking us to 101 bars over the course of, well, 101 hours as we later realized.

Below is story of our journey. You can click each day to read the complete story, or click a bar name to jump directly to a particular location.
