The 5th Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl will take place on Saturday, December 14, 2013 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.
Crawlers sign up online, choose their favorite SANTA route and pay a $10 donation/entrance fee.* A very generous portion of all proceeds benefit the Westside Food Bank to feed the less fortunate over the holidays. Last year's event raised over $20,000...enough for 100,000 meals!
Participants must purchase the official SMPC wristband in order to receive the holiday food & drink specials. Wristbands can be purchased and picked up at one of the official starting locations along each route. Suggested start time is 5pm! Bars will hit capacity so please patiently wait in line or move to the next location on your route.
You must pick up your wristband from your official starting location and then move along to any of the bars on the crawl. Wristbands are also available for pick up in advance at the Westside Food Bank offices from Wed, Dec. 11 through Fri, Dec. 13 from 10am-5pm. 1710 22nd St. Santa Monica, CA 90404 Phone: (310) 828-6016. www.wsfb.org
A limited amount of wristbands will be available at each starting location for $15. Must arrive early - first come first serve. The location of the 5 Year Anniversary Official After Party will be announced via Facebook and Twitter the night of the event. Tickets are $20 for Front of Line Access.
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, The Pier, Third Street Promenade and Main Street.

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.

The SANTA Monica Pub Crawl is a community event that encourages responsible drinking by participants. When taking part in any events that involve drinking, always keep safety first. Don't DRINK and DRIVE, and assign a designated driver at the beginning of the night, call a taxi, or use public transportation.
Early arrival at 5pm is strongly suggested. Bars will hit capacity! To keep the crawl moving, we recommend a max of 1 hour at each location. Please pick up your wristband at your designated starting location. Once doing so, you are free to move along each of the routes as you please. Thank you for your support of the Westside Food Bank. You are making a huge difference as every $5 will feed 20 people in need.
