The 12 Bars of X-Mas is TODAY. I hope you’ve found your ugly holiday sweater or Santa Suit and are raring to deck the halls. I just have a few reminders/orders of business to ensure everything goes smoothly and everyone has a fantastic time.
1.) Holiday outfits aren’t required but highly encouraged. You can see some pictures from 2009 here.
2.) You don’t need to show up to the first bar to join the crawl. We may run out of koozies (limited to 400), but you’re welcome to join at any point during the event. We’ll have staff at all the scheduled bars as capacity allows.
3.) PLEASE come with the exact amount that you would like to give for your donation. We know it may be a pain, but it really keeps things moving if we don’t have to find/make change. If you haven’t, take a minute to look at the website for our charity, Horizons for Homeless Children. 100% of your donation goes to them, and it’s a great organization. As always, we thank our Crawlers for their extreme generosity!
4.) Thanks to our many many dedicated crawlers, the turnouts have been huge. If we get another big turnout like we did for Halloween and the scheduled bar fills up, you can skip around the schedule. For instance, Trinity is on the schedule at 4:00, but will be ready to welcome crawlers at 3:00, etc. The bars know we’re coming and should be prepared. We just want to remind everyone to have a good time and be kind to the bar staff and your fellow crawlers. We don’t want anyone getting on Santa’s naughty list! If you don’t get a chance to see us, you can always go to Horizon for Homeless Children’s website and make a donation there.
Thanks, and hope to see you on Saturday. Cheers!
