The Manic Americans have been sponsoring an annual pub crawl in the not-that-far-from-Manhattan but very-hard-to-reach neighborhood of College Point, Queens since 2006.  Last December, a skeleton crew kept the tradition alive.

Originally conceived as a blue-collar pub tour, the crawl has started to embrace the influence of Chinese immigrants on the neighborhood.  Last year, we sampled food from both the Sichuan and Xinjiang regions of China.

As we start to plan for the 2012 Crawl, we thought we’d post some photos from last year’s edition.  If any of this looks intriguing, stay tuned to our Facebook page for the details of the 2012 CPC!

Here are the photos — click on any one for more info.
