The 7th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl returns Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 5 p.m. with more than 30 local bars and restaurants participating in the annual fundraiser benefitting the Westside Food Bank. Last year, nearly 6,000 crawlers donned antlers, Santa suits and elf attire for the event, and since its start, the SANTA Monica Pub Crawl has raised nearly $100,000 for its charity.
The crawl features four routes including Wilshire Blvd., Main Street, The Pier and Third Street Promenade, all offering crawlers with wristbands food and drink specials such as $3 beers, $5 wells and $5 shots as part of the festivities. Tickets are $12 and are available at www.santamonicapubcrawl.com.
An Instagram contest (#SMPCSpirit) will award the crawler with the most impressive holiday gear with a special prize including gifts from a number of participating bars and restaurants. Groups of five or more can also sign up their team to participate in a Santa Scavenger Hunt for more prizes to win.
In order to participate, crawlers must choose a route, download the map and go to their official route starting location to collect their wristband. The pub crawl includes special offerings all night including $5 Stella drafts at participating locations. Other special offers include $3 slices at Joe's Pizza, $4 Bud Light draft beers at Rusty's Surf Ranch, $6 Chicken Quesadillas at Enterprise Fish Co., $5 Santa Monica Brew Works 310 beer and half price flatbreads at Del Frisco's Grille, buy one-get one soft-serve at Tasti D-Lite and more. The after party will be held for an additional fee at Wokcano Santa Monica with food and drink specials, giveaways, DJs, dancing, photo booth and more.
Use code SMPC15 for $20 off the first ride on Lyft. The Big Blue Bus will be selling unlimited bus passes for $4 on the pub crawl website. Santa Monica Free Ride vehicles will also be giving rides up and down each route and handing out Vita Coco Coconut Water for crawlers to hydrate along the way.
