It's almost that time of year again - when the frost is on the vine, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and the silver bells are ringing.
Ok, who are we fooling? There is no frost in L.A., we all live in apartments, and our smartphones are the only things ringing.
But, each December, we do have the absolute best time you can have on concrete under palm trees - the Santa Monica Pub Crawl.
This year, the Santa Monica Pub Crawl is on Saturday, December 12.
The 7th Annual Santa Monica Pub Crawl on December 12, 2015 begins at 5 p.m. at the city's best bars and restaurants - and it's all for a good cause.
The pub crawl raises money for those in need during the holidays through a partnership with the Westside Food Bank.
Suggested dress is in holiday/Santa attire, either individually or in teams so that the streets of Santa Monica are filled with merry cheer.
Crawlers should sign up online, pay a $12 donation/entrance fee, choose a route, and collect their wristband and map at an official starting location.
