Have you seen all the information coming out about zombies in downtown Cape? There was a news report about zombies attacking on the streets of Cape and then there was even a video about a couple girls that had zombies following them into their home! What about the ominous billboard that states the end is coming December 1st?
Then there was even a creepy guy holding a sign that read, “The End is Near” walking the streets of Cape. Come to think about it, there were zombies following him around too! What does this all mean? Are there ravenous zombies walking our streets just looking for their next meal? Is the world really going to end on December 1st? Well, hopefully the world is not coming to an end that day because that’s when the End of the World Pub Crawl is happening! (As far as the zombies go, I would just watch my back.)
The End of the World Pub Crawl is the first event of its kind in Cape. The Crawl is on December 1st from 5-9:30pm. There are 10 clubs that are involved: Pink Galleon, Whiskey River, Hot Shots, Mixing 10, Trish’s Place, Pourhouse, Rhymers, BelAir, The Library, and Rude Dog. The object of the game is to make it through all the clubs on the crawl and still have your “life” (a flag belt) to be entered into a drawing to win some really cool prizes, such as a trip to Cancun, a weekend in St. Louis, gift cards to local places and other cool stuff. All you have to do is make it to all the clubs, get your card punched, and keep your flags until the end. Easy, right? Oh and I forgot to mention that there will be hungry zombies trying to steal your “life”. No big deal. Transportation will be provided by shuttle from the Plaza to Downtown Cape. There is also going to be a pre-party at Pink Galleon from 3-5pm with food provided by BelAir catering, a zombie pageant, and much more. Tickets must be purchased in advance for $10. Registration for the Crawl can be done at endoftheworldpubcrawl.com. If you register before November 18, you will receive a t-shirt and can koozie too!
In addition to just being fun, the Crawl is also a good way to help a child this Christmas. The Crawl is partnering with the Marines Happy Slapowitz Toys for Tots. When you bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Crawl, you get your name automatically entered into the grand prize drawing. If you bring a toy and make it through all the clubs with your flags, you get two chances to win in the grand prize drawing. It’s a win/win!
What are you waiting for?! Everyone always talks about what they are going to do when the zombies come so here’s your chance to practice, have fun, and helping out a great cause while you’re at it! More information can be found at endoftheworldpubcrawl.com.
