Gentlemen and Ho Ho Hos,
‘Tis the season to drink too much with the coworkers, friends, and family who are the reason you drink too much. Get out your finest holiday attire, ugliest Christmas sweaters, and most ludicrous seasonal costumes and spread some holiday cheer down Rainey Street for the 4th Annual 12 Bars of Christmas! Costumes are strongly encouraged, if not required.
In the true spirit of the holidays, we’ll fill up Santa’s sleigh with things other than empty Jack and Tito’s bottles. Not only is this a bar crawl, but a toy drive! Because 2017 was so wildly successful, we are working things a bit different this year. Here’s how it works:
1. Purchase a $5 ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/4th-annual-12-bars-of-christmas-tickets-52085410866
2. Bring an unwrapped toy (or toys) to the first bar
3. You will get a wristband, which will get you drink specials at all 12 bars!
If you don’t buy a ticket AND bring a toy, you don’t get a wristband, so don’t be a grinch. These toys will be donated to nearly 15,000 kids in the Austin area by Operation Blue Santa. This is pretty much a guaranteed way to get on the nice list.
This is the original 12 Bars. Many imitate, none are equivalent. And I met my girlfriend on this crawl last year, so you know it’s good.
We had over 300 people and many more toys in 2017, so let’s top that this year.
Invite your friends! The more, the merrier.
