Special thanks to Kate Twoey, Natalie Race, and Molly Countermine for their special welcome as we arrived at Zeno’s. Here they are doing “Here Comes Santa Crawl”, a little diddy they put together just for us.
One of the best photos from last year’s crawl was the group shot that Indigo took. Well they smacked it out of the park with another fantastic shot this year. Thanks to AJ and the whole Indigo crew for hosting… Read more ›

Unfortunately, I just got last minute word that bar bleu will not be participating in the wristband pass. They say they will be charging 100% of the participants whether they are wearing wristbands or not. That’s certainly their prerogative, just… Read more ›

Saving the best for last? Coming from last to first? I don’t know which describes the Cafe better. Originally, the Cafe was our final stop on the tour. We’d travel from Hooter’s on the east end of College Ave… Read more ›

Our appearance at Indigo coincides with their Ugly Sweater Party. With a little bit of imagination, I would think that a lot of people out there could knock off two birds with one stone.
By now, you’ve probably noticed this photo showing up in my, and many others, Facebook feeds. It was taken at Indigo during the 2012 Santa Crawl. Thanks to the courtesy of the Indigo team and their photographer, we will once… Read more ›
The easiest way is – just show up. We’ll be selling the wristbands at both the Cafe 210 and Kildare’s during the Crawl. So just show up at the door and you’ll be able to purchase one. If you are… Read more ›

This is so in the spirit of the Santa Crawl that I couldn’t resist posting it. If you are going to parade around town in costume for a few hours, you can’t take yourself seriously.
We’ve got you covered there too. Ben Lippincott and the staff at Bradley’s Steaks and Hoagies have a very special offer for the Crawl. Located smack dab in the middle of Santa Crawl territory (across the street from the Skeller),… Read more ›
How about a hoagie? I know it’s hard to believe but there are some folk out there who aren’t pizza lovers. We have a deal for them too. Or more specifically, Pat Daugherty of the Tavern has one. He’s offering… Read more ›
