Toga Bear (September 12-14, 2014)



Bear Albany is going GREEK as we welcome the fall season. As if you needed an excuse to wear less to the bar, we challenge you to break out the extra bedsheets as you show Albany how HOT you look in a toga! The TOGA PARTY on SEPTEMBER 13th will offer a clothes check, allowing you to don your toga and enjoy the drink specials, the free midnight snacks, and most importantly the most fun-loving bears the northeast has to offer. See who's going...

Hotel Information

Most of you should be familiar with the Marriott Townplace Suites (22 Holland Ave. Albany, NY). As always, be sure to ask for the "BEAR ALBANY DISCOUNT" when calling to get our special rates (518-860-1500). There's no event registration fees and be sure to take advantage of the hotel's FREE SHUTTLE so you don't have to drive to the bars!

Friday: Meat & Greet (9pm)

UNDERBEAR weekend kicks off on Friday May 30th @ WaterWorks Pub for the BEARAOKE MEAT & GREET (76 Central Ave). Come have a couple drinks and then sing your favorite song for the gang. It's a great time to "meat" new friends and "greet" buddies that you haven't seen in a while. WaterWorks Pub always has a great atmosphere, awesome drink specials, free pizza & wings, and NO COVER for all of our BEAR ALBANY buds. See who's going...

Saturday: Fall! So much to do!

Albany is beautiful in September and there's a lot going on. The Annual Fall Apple Festival in Altamont, the hotel pool, The Festival of Meats! So much to do in the Capital Region in the Fall. It is an on-your-own day but we will provide more information about area events soon! Stay Tuned! See who's going...

Saturday: TOGA BEAR! (9pm)

Come out Saturday September 13th at 9pm to the TOGA BEAR main event at ROCKS (77 Central Ave). Show us your hottest TOGA by leaving your clothes at the coat check station, then head into the bar for awesome drink specials, great dance music, and a late night bite to eat around midnight. There's $7 donation at the door, which benefits the C4 AIDS Ward in Albany Medical Center. And while you're exploring every DARK CORNER of the bar, remember that what happens in Albany, stays in Albany. See who's going...

Sunday: Brunch (12pm)

Head over with the Bear Albany gang to McGeary's Irish Pub (4 Clinton Square) to have a delicious lunch. The staff is extremely bear-friendly, they have a pretty great lunch menu, and they'll even give you 20% off your lunch check by saying you're with Bear Albany. It should also be mentioned that it's the perfect place for those in dire need of a little "hair of the dog" on Sunday morning. See who's going...
