(Booze) Cruise Around Raleigh in a Retrofitted Fire Truck

We can't believe it either. Axes & Ales will take you and the rest of your party (bachelor/bachelorette, birthday or just 'cause) on a cruise around Raleigh. Booze is optional, fun is not.

Axes & Ales is the brainchild of Anthony Battaglia (fireman, Lucky B's owner and former Amazing Race winner) and Ryan Nelson (firefighter and US Army vet). The pair transformed a 1989 Grumman Firecat into a "Partycat" that can be booked for any occasion: pub crawl, bachelor/bachelorette party, tailgate or concert, etc.

Online booking prices start at $420 for up to 13 people and two hours of cruising (three bars if you're slow, five if you're on a mission). BYOB or stock up from Lucky B's new take out menu:

Miller Lite 4 Pack of 16oz Cans – $8.00
Yuengling Lite 4 Pack of 16oz Cans – $8.00
Coors Light 4 Pack of 16oz Cans – $8.00
3lbs. of Ice – $3.00
(15) 14oz Plastic Cups – $3.00
