Spearheaded by the co-founder of the hugely successful Park City Santa Pub Crawl in Utah, which now draws 2,000 revelers each year, the inaugural La Jolla Santa Pub Crawl will take place Saturday, Dec. 15, beginning at 6 p.m. It is designed to be a fun opportunity to eat, drink and be merry, San Diego-style.

The pub crawl is open to the public, ages 21 and over. It is free to attend, but participants are asked to bring an unwrapped toy to Hennessey’s anytime during the evening. The donations will be delivered to Rady Children’s Hospital to distribute to their patients.

Participating bars on the pub crawl are George’s at the Cove Level 2, The Spot, Jose’s Courtroom, and Hennessey’s. Crawlers are invited to be creative and wear festive, holiday-themed costumes.

“The Park City Santa Pub Crawl began eight years ago with about 20 participants, and it has since grown to about 2,000 people, taking over the town and traveling from all over the country,” says Hilary Reiter of Redhead Marketing & PR, organizer of both La Jolla and Park City Santa Pub Crawls.

“Given how many people from San Diego visit Park City and vice versa, it makes so much sense to replicate the event in La Jolla with all the great venues and walkability there,” Reiter said. “Each year, we see amazingly fun and creative costumes, and a vast age range from early 20s to those in their 70s. Everyone has a blast, we collect thousands of toys, and the local economy gets a great boost as well.”

The pub crawl schedule:

6 p.m. George’s at the Cove Level 2;

7 p.m. The Spot;

8 p.m. Jose’s Courtroom;

9 p.m. Hennessey’s (Toy drop off).

Unwrapped toys may be dropped off at Hennessey's at the beginning of the night for convenience or anytime thereafter during the evening. To view the Rady Children’s Hospital toy wish list and the items that cannot be accepted, visit radyfoundation.org/toys.
