This Wynwood bar is giving free rides to the polls, plus free booze and pizza

Gramps is serving up pizza and democracy all weekend long!

What will it take to get you to the polls before Election Day madness? Is it booze? Is it pizza? Is it a free ride? How about all three? If so, book it to Gramps this weekend.

The Wynwood bar is so determined to get folks to vote early that it’s organized a two-day caravan to drive people to the nearest early voting site, which according to their Instagram, will likely be the Lemon City Library (430 NE 61st St) that’s up the road. Free, round-trip bus rides will leave from Gramps every hour on the hour on Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 6pm (the polls close at 7pm).

Everyone who shows up, goes on the bus AND waits in line to vote early will get a free T-shirt designed by local artist Brian Butler of Upper Hand Art (while supplies last), a slice from Pizza Tropical (one of Miami’s best pizza spots) and an alcoholic beverage (can’t say no to that). 

The grassroots effort is way more fun than a regular trip to the polls on your own, but remember that all the usual election stuff applies. You’ll need to bring a valid photo ID with a signature with you to vote and you will under no circumstances take a ballot selfie. Instead, vote privately and collect your “I Voted!” sticker to score all kinds of freebies on your way home from the bar.
