The 4th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl will take place on Saturday, December 15, 2012, at 5PM in Santa Monica, CA. The city's best bars and restaurants will come together to help raise 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.

Don't Drink & Drive! All routes are walkable but should you decide to use transportation, hop on the BIG BLUE BUS. Purchase unlimited ride pass for $4 here. Or Cab it! Yellow Cab is our official taxi partner and is donating a portion of all proceeds from the night to the Westside Food Bank.
NO JAYWALKING! Santa Monica recently increased the cost of a jaywalking ticket to $350 so PLEASE use the cross walks or you WILL get a ticket... and that's worse that getting coal in your stocking.
