Celebrate the holidays with the best of Santa Monica’s nightlife while raising money for those in need with the 5th Annual Santa Monica Pub Crawl. Taking place on Saturday, December 14, 2013, in Santa Monica at the city’s best bars and restaurants the event will raise money for Westside Food Bank. Last year over 5,000 people took part in the event to raise over $20,000!
The event is simple to follow – just sign up online ($10 early bird / $15 on day), choose a route and then collect your wristband and map at the official starting location on the day. The wristband will give you access to a number of drink and food specials at the 25 participating locations. To stop any potentially naughty elves from drinking and driving Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus service is offering crawlers unlimited bus rides for just $4.
To ensure the streets of Santa Monica are filled with good cheer, participants are asked to dress in holiday attire so get your best Christmas or Hanukkah costumes ready because the best overall costume will win a two-night stay at the Hotel Erwin in Venice, popular for its roof top bar with fantastic views of the beach. You can also enter Santa’s Scavenger Challenge to win a Taste of Santa Monica gift package with gift certificates to multiple restaurants.
