12 Bars of X-Mas

12 Bars of X-Mas Update

Posted on Updated on

Hello Crawlers!

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.

5.) For updates check out Twitter or Facebook. We’ll be updating all day to let you know where we’re at.

The SCHEDULE is here (as mentioned earlier, feel free to freelance and skip around as many bars may reach capacity early, you can always go back later)

Thanks, and hope to see you on Saturday. Cheers!


12 Bars of Christmas – 12/4/10

Posted on Updated on

Please join Crawl in Boston to tour the Faneuil Hall area. We’re excited to once again bringing you the 12 Bars of Christmas. Once again we’ll be supporting the Horizons for Homeless Children Charity

Each bar providing a $3 (or less) specialty themed Holiday based drink.

Who is Crawl in Boston?

Crawl in Boston is a social networking group that gives professionals a chance to meet new people in a casual and fun atmosphere. People of all ages have gathered to join the bar crawls, and we’ve raised money and goods for local charities. We also spread the word about other similar events we’ve heard about, as well as new places and bar/restaurant specials. We’re bringing people together, one drink at a time for local charities.

Who are Horizons for Homeless Children?

They help children learn how to play, to share, to read, and to enjoy exploring their worlds. They help parents learn how to be nurturing and involved in the growth and development of their children, and help them learn and grow through job training, GED and college courses. They help to stabilize families so that they can weather any crisis, and thus help to break the cycle of homelessness that too often occurs.

What does this event cost?

We are asking for $5.00 to attend. Please keep in mind that proceeds of your donation will go towards the Horizons for Homeless Children charity. However everyone who donates will also be receiving:

*Crawl in Boston Nametag

*Crawl in Boston Beverage Koozie

*Crawl in Boston Bar Map

*Crawl in Boston Stamp – To guarantee drink specials and no covers

Crawl in Boston wants to provide you with as much fun as possible for as little as possible! – Crawlers are responsible for their own drinks.

Pictures from some of our past events can be found here

How Do I Sign Up?

We ask you RSVP on the Facebook event ASAP. This gives us a better idea on how many people are coming. We can better arrange our schedule so the bars have enough staff to accommodate you all. Also helps let us know how many koozies to order.

What’s the schedule?

The schedule will be released as the event gets closer. Keep checking!

You don’t have to arrive at the 1st bar. Feel free to come and go as you please.
