When Billy Shakespeare wrote those words, he was most certainly thinking of the last 12 months...
We've had some very serious problems in this past year. Volcanoes are
blacking out the sky, earthquakes are swallowing whole cities, the
economy is broken, dead birds are falling from the sky, the McCort divorce has no end in site, the Jets have a chance of going to the Super Bowl.... the list goes on and
on. Throw in a boiling ocean and a blood red moon, and we're
legitimately dealing with the apocalypse here.
But at least, here in southern California, we have the weather to
enjoy. Those perfect, sunny summers. Those mild, beautiful winters...
A total of three hours of sun this summer.... we got totally gyped. What the hell was that?
And this winter? C'mon, enough already with the rain. At least we
can hit up the local mountains for some good snow, right? Wait, what?
The road is washed out? Are you serious??
Worry not, peas. There is a light at the end of the tunnel... the oil slicked, cholera infected, pirate infested tunnel...
THE CRAWL IS BACK!
Last year was incredible. A 5th anniversary not to be forgotten. We
had hundreds of beautiful people in stunning uniforms. We had 5 states
represented. We had a mariachi band leading us into battle. Hell, we
even had a crawler in a wheelchair. That is serious dedication to
This year, we are ready to set new records with the 6th Annual 122
34th Street Pub Crawl. First pubcrawl to be seen from space? Let's do
it. Call Guinness.
We pushed the date back until the first Saturday in March (March
5th), in hopes of getting a sunny day. Also going with the
theme, we decided to buck the shirt trend. Instead, this year, the
uniform is a beeee-yutiful (and cheap!) 5 foot, high quality custom knitted scarf. We figure
everyone will be wearing a nice thick liquid jacket to keep warm
As always, with the uniform comes drink specials. The
scarf will pay for itself in the first few rounds of drinks: we will
have the usual perks, such as happy hour prices, half price drinks, free
shots, and, of course, general looking awesome-ness. For good taste, with every scarf we
throw in an ice cold Tecate to kick the party off. And of course, there
will be a special surprise..........
You don't get the drink specials if you don't have the scarf. It's the
frugal AND fashionable thing to do. Fashionagal? Whatever. Buy the
ticket, take the ride. You can pay by clicking the button at the top of this invite. Details are down at the bottom.
There isn't much more to say. If you've
been on the crawl before, you know what to expect. Hopefully you're all
healed up from last year, out on bail, and ready to make some bad
decisions again. If this is your first time, get your affairs in order
and tell your family you love them.
For any of you on the fence, it's worth pointing out that the
tenant of 122 34th Street for most of 2010 was Doyer Manager Don "Donnie Baseball" Mattingly. I
heard he lived in one room and he rented the other to his
mustache (they broke up a few years ago, but are still really good friends.)
2011 is already looking up, peas. Let's kick this pig.
-The Management, 122 34th Street
-We will kick off from (where else) 122 34th Street in Hermosa Beach. We will leave for the first bar at high noon, 12:00pm. Get there early to pick up your scarf and enjoy a complimentary adult beverage.
-The scarf will cost $11.00. This thing is awesome. You know we don't skimp on quality. There is an option to pay at the top of this page. WE NEED TO PLACE THE ORDER NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH. That's 2 and a half weeks from right now. Plenty of time. It takes 2 minutes to buy your scarf, and it pays for itself with drink specials very quickly, so don't hesitate. The more, the better.
-As for parking, to avoid the meters, park above Manhattan Avenue. Make sure to check the signs. Nothing makes a hangover worse than a parking ticket.
-Forward this invitation like it's hot. Anybody I've forgotten, or anybody who you want to include. All are welcome. Let's make this huger-er.
-If you have any questions, call me at 310.947.9484, or email us at 12234thStreet@gmail.com
