The 3rd Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl will take place on Saturday, December 17, 2011, at 5PM in Santa Monica. The “crawl” raises money for those in need during the holidays through a partnership with the Westside Food Bank.
This year, crawlers need to sign up online and choose their favorite SANTA route (the closest starting point to Venice is O’Briens on Main – but you may want another “route”). In lieu of canned goods, participants are asked to pay a $10 donation/entrance fee. A large portion of all proceeds will go to the Westside Food Bank to feed the less fortunate over the holidays.
Participants must purchase the official SMPC wristband in order to receive the holiday food & drink special and gain free entry into the Official After Party, where all the routes will join forces to dance, celebrate, win prizes, and spread good cheer. All ticket holders will also be automatically entered into the SMPC raffle for the chance to win a ton of amazing prizes, including dinner for two at all of the participating locations. Wristbands can be purchased and picked up at one of the official starting locations along each route.
All SMPC participants are asked to dress in Santa/Holiday attire, either individually or in teams, so that the streets of Santa Monica will be filled with merry cheer, such as: Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer, Carolers and Santa’s Helpers. The Pub Crawl will include bars on Wilshire, 4th St., Santa Monica Blvd and Main Street and conclude with the Official After Party at Yankee Doodles (must have wristband for access or $10 cover).
