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!
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.
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?
You don’t have to arrive at the 1st bar. Feel free to come and go as you please.
Turkey Day is upon us. Follow these simple steps to ensure you still fit into your desk next Monday.
1) Holiday Sweater – you’ve just put on 8 pounds in the last 35 minutes. Hide it while being festive.
2) Top Off – Grandma can’t keep tabs on how many Hottie Totties you’ve downed if you never let your cup get more than half empty.
3) Hide and Seek – Hide a couch cushion. When your cousins all scramble for valuable sofa real estate after the feast, you can arrive late and still get VIP seating.
4) Stretch – do a few toe touches prior to overeating. No, this won’t clear any stomach room but relatives will think twice before grabbing the last helping of turkey out from you.
5) Smile – You are surrounded by loving friends and family. You don’t have to buy presents, put on a costume, or hide eggs. Fully enjoy this holiday with people you love.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon at our upcoming events. 12 Bars of Christmas is December 4th, the Bocce and Mini Golf seasons begin January 12th and our biggest crawl of the year, Valentine’s, is on February 12th.
