Pub Crawl to be bigger and better in 2013

Art Crawl added Saturday, Nov. 9, for an entire weekend of fun 

By Tina SnellStaff Writer

The second annual Little Falls Pub Crawl will take place Friday, Nov. 8. Added this year is an Art Crawl Saturday, Nov. 9, to help keep the momentum going and keep people in town enjoying all that Little Falls has to offer.

“This is an opportunity to go to places you have never been to,” said Kristina VonBerge, director of the Little Falls Visitors and Convention Bureau.

While the local establishments put together the Crawls, VonBerge started the first event in 2012 and would like to see it continue.

The refresherator will be given away Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. at Great River Arts Association. To win the beer dispenser, one must purchase the $10 package that includes 11 registrations for the drawing. Participants must drop one registration off at each pub.

Eleven bars are participating this year. Each will have drink specials and offer games with prizes for the winners.

For $10, each participant will receive a T-shirt, Crawl registrations, one for each of the 11 stops, and a passport for the Art Crawl.

The pubs participating in the Crawl are Johnny C’s Sports Bar, Zylka’s Red Bull Bar and Grill, Whiskey River, Boomerang Bar, Cabin Fever, The Canteen, Main Gate, West Side Bar, JC’s Nut Hut, Falls Bar and A.T. The Black & White.

The 11 registrations, when filled out, need to be deposited in the designated box at each establishment. The winner will be drawn Saturday, Nov. 9, at Great River Arts Association (GRAA) at 7 p.m. and will receive the grand prize, a refresherator.

The refresherator is a full-sized Coors Lite beer refrigerator that dispenses cans with the push of a button.

Each pub will be offering games and prizes, in addition to the grand prize of the refresherator, for those who register.

There are only 575 T-shirts and registrations available. Once they are gone, they are gone, and those not who did not purchase a registration will not be able to participate in drink specials or be in the drawing for the refresherator.

Crawlers are asked to wear their T-shirts Friday evening.

The Art Crawl is new this year and was added to continue the fun weekend.

GRAA is Saturday’s Crawl headquarters. There will be an art exhibit, the band, Harper’s Chord, a wine sommelier and a clairvoyant from Mind Body and Spirit in St. Cloud. Participants may sign up for tours to Linden Hill, Charles Lindbergh’s boyhood home and the Waller House.

Other stops during the Art Crawl plus their activities include, but are not limited to, the West Side Bar (gift wrapping), Bead Falls (jewelry making), Ambiance @ 53 (jewelry design), Whiskey River, JC’s Nut Hut, HealthSource and Falls Bar (massages), Zylka’s Red Bull Bar (hand reflexology) and more. Information may be obtained by purchasing the T-shirt and passport from one of the 11 establishments before the Pub Crawl or for $5 from GRAA Saturday.

Another drawing will take place at GRAA at 7 p.m. for those who have a minimum of six stickers added to their passport from participating businesses.
