    The First Annual SANTA Monica Pub Crawl is scheduled for December 19, but don't be fooled because this is not your ordinary drunken-college bar hop.

    How is this so different? First of all, the streets of Santa Monica will be filled with people dressed as Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer, Carolers and Santa's Helpers as those participants travel from pub to pub sampling specially priced drinks and food.

    Secondly, the festive-dressed crawlers are asked to bring non-perishable food donations to drop off at various collection points throughout the tour. The food will go to the Westside Food Bank and a portion of the proceeds from each stop will also go to the food bank.

    Where will this crawl take me? The pub crawl will include bars on Wilshire, 4th St. and Broadway to Santa Monica Blvd and Ocean Ave as well as bars in and around the Main Street and 3rd Street Districts. Check out the pub crawl website to see where Santa will take you.

    What should I do now? Go to the website and register your attendance. After you register, start inviting your friends to join you. Finally, plan out your costume and begin watching your favorite holiday movies.
