About Bootscrape Entertainment:
Over 22 years and still crawling! Literary Pub Crawl's in-depth knowledge and underground cult status has brought passion for history, literature, and drinking to the Village since 1998. Their Greenwich Village tour is the oldest continuously operating walking tour in the Village. A young theater company, The New Ensemble, was looking to raise money for their inaugural production of Romeo and Juliet. Regular "company meetings" would be held at the White Horse Tavern, Chumley's, and the old Cedar Tavern among others. Quickly the idea came about to hold regular readings of these writer's works. Picking up cues from the 1960's village Beats, where you could "Rent a Beatnik" or go on Beat tours of the village, The New Ensemble held several roving readings at their favorite pubs. Since that time numerous walking tours and pub crawls have emerged, but when you hear the stories and the research, along with recitations of the writers work, it becomes clear why Literary Pub Crawl is ranked as one of the best tours in the city. They've worked hard to not only keep this history alive, but to revive and inspire the spirit of the Village and the writers who helped shaped this nation and the world.
