Chad Sander, a partner in 39th Street’s Mo Brew, is expanding with two new ventures.

▪ ARC Transport is available for private bookings, including transport to games and concerts.

But it also has a regular run as A Royal Crawl, a bar shuttle service. The two buses run from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights and make five stops — the Blue Line hockey bar in the River Market, John’s Big Deck in the downtown loop, Rhythm & Booze/Bat Cave in the Crossroads, Mo Brew/Drunken Worm on 39th Street and The Riot Room in Westport.

Riders pay $10 for wristbands at one of the bar stops and then they can get on and off the two buses as often as they want during the six-hour run. Participating bars also are offering specials and a break on cover charges.

“In between going to bars the party doesn’t stop. You can bring your drink on the bus, you don’t have to worry about parking and the buses come every 40 minutes to an hour,” Sander said.

▪ Sander also is opening Just Juice on Oct. 21 with partner Kendall Harris. The juice bar, at 1607 W. 39th St., will offer fresh cold-press juices, smoothies and protein shakes. Items will include the John Daly, a coffee smoothie, and The Serena protein shake. Sander also will be working with local personal trainers on juice cleanses and other specialty drinks.

Sander opened Mo Brew, at 1403 W. 39th St., in late 2014 with partner Matt Laffey. Sander also is a partner in the Drunken Worm next door, as well as John’s Big Deck downtown.
