You’ve decked the halls and spiced the cider, now it’s time to walk in a not so wintery wonderland as The Sunset Strip’s restaurants and bars host TweetCrawl VI: Sleigh Bells on Sunset! The signature venue-crawl-meets-social-networking event is taking over the boulevard – jingle bells and all – on Dec. 18.
Participants are encouraged to don their tackiest, most festive holiday sweater as the group carols down The Strip spreading cheer and visiting some favorite spots. Indulge in very merry libations, food and goodies – not to mention a chance to win a bounty of awesome prizes from participating businesses as well as The Roxy Theatre (@theroxy) and Dan Deutsch Optical (@dandeutschoo). (Be sure to follow them all for chances to win.)
TweetCrawl VI will kick off at 7 p.m. at XIV restaurant and concludes at The Comedy Store at 11 p.m., but the party doesn’t end there. The Cat Club and Key Club are opening their doors to host the official “after parties” for TweetCrawlers, offering free entrance to all. So grab your portable emailing device and meet us on The Strip for a night of adventure that is sure to score you some points on the naughty list.
