The 5th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl returns with more than 30 local bars and restaurants coming together to raise money for those in need through a partnership with the Westside Food Bank. Last year, more than 5,000 crawlers celebrated the season by filling the streets dressed as Santas, reindeer and elves, and raised enough money for 120,000 meals.
Participating bars on Wilshire, Main Street, The Pier and the Third Street Promenade, will offer food and drink specials. Dress in Santa/holiday attire and an Instagram contest will award the crawler(s) with the most impressive holiday gear with a special prize. $10 gets you the official pub crawl wristband, which gets you access to food and drink specials at each location. There will also be a 5-year anniversary Official After Party with music, dancing, a photo booth, contests and more fun festivities (location will be announced the night of the crawl).
The SANTA Monica Pub Crawl is a community event and encourages responsible drinking. The Big Blue Bus will be selling unlimited bus passes for $4 on the pub crawl website. Additionally, new users can receive $15 off Uber rides with code SMPC, and Santa Monica Free Ride vehicles will be giving free rides up and down each route and handing out Vita Coco Coconut Water for crawlers to hydrate along the way.
