Cupid’s Bar Crawl, which was put on hold after hitting opposition from D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board in February, will now take place on April 23, said Michael Bramson, a managing member at event company Project D.C.

The board last week ruled that Project D.C. could move forward with two bar-hopping events —  Cupid’s Bar Crawl and Crawl De Mayo — provided it abides by new regulations regarding pub crawls that the board proposed earlier this year.

“Our next two events were approved by ABRA,” Bramsom told us in an email earlier today. “We feel that the new regulations will be beneficial to the surrounding neighborhoods, particularly the requirement that all event companies now must have a detailed litter plan.”

Cupid’s Bar Crawl is slated to bring thousands of attendees to bars across the Dupont Circle neighborhood.
