Grubhub Presents…the 8th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl on Saturday, Dec. 10, so mark your calendars!
It’s almost that time of year again—when the frost is on the vine, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care and the silver bells are ringing. Ok, who are we fooling? There is no frost in LA, we all live in apartments and our smartphone ringtones are the only things ringing, BUT each December we DO have the absolute-best-time-you-can-have-on-concrete-under-palm-trees… The 2016 SANTA Monica Pub Crawl is set for Saturday, December 10th!
Last year, more than 6,000 people crawled their hearts out to 30 bars, raising over $20,000 dollars for the Westside Food Bank! This year, we are working to make this the biggest and best SANTA Monica Pub Crawl ever with fun prizes and contests, all while helping the less fortunate put food on the table this Holiday Season. So, dust off those antlers, shine up those menorahs and get ready for the 8th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl!
The 8th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl, presented by Grubhub will take place on Saturday, December 10, 2016, at 5PM in Santa Monica, CA at the city’s best bars and restaurants to raise money for those in need during the holidays through a partnership with Westside Food Bank. With your official SMPC wristband you will receive drink and food specials at the participating locations.
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 feature multiple routes with bars on Wilshire, The Pier, Third Street Promenade and Main Street.
