Finding the will to leave your house in the winter can be tough. When those below-zero temps start to hit, so does the temptation to stay inside until spring. But don't worry, we've found just the thing to keep you warm and toasty, and it's totally worth leaving your house for. Ontario's epic 12 Barz of Christmas holiday bar crawl is happening this weekend, and it’s absolutely perfect for you and your BFFs or your one true. Well, as long as you like a good drink.
And, let's face it, who doesn't? Forget about milk and cookies. If sipping cocktails with Santa and his reindeer sounds like your kind of holiday magic, this event run by 12barz is right up your street.
This festive and boozy event has been a tipsy tradition for 16 years now and has become the largest of its kind in all of North America. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
One of the best things about this boozetastic night is that it pops up all across the province. Host cities for 2019 include Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Oshawa, Peterborough, Barrie, Brantford, and many more.
Most of the crawls are taking place on Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30. You can see a full schedule on the official website.
The crawls consist of groups of between 100 and 150 people hopping around four different bars throughout the city.
At each bar, you'll find exclusive holiday drinks and various other fun activities. And, in the end, each group comes together at the final bar for an epic holiday shindig. Ho-ho-ho indeed!
You're likely to make plenty of new friends along the way, so whether you're with the squad or flying solo, you're sure to have a blast.
Participating in the bar crawl means you get exclusive access to each of the bars on your route. Yup, no cover charges or waiting in lines for you.
You'll also get a t-shirt for the night which includes a list of tasks and holiday drinks for you to check off throughout the crawl.
A sharpie, stickers, and a limited-edition shot glass are also included when you participate.
You are encouraged to get a little creative with the provided T-shirts, too.
Cutting them into new styles, adding tinsel or lights, or whatever crafty ideas you can come up with to make your outfit as festive as possible.
So, if you're looking for the kind of crazy winter excursion that you definitely might forget, then why not check out North America's largest holiday bar crawl?
There are limited tickets available for some cities, so don't wait, rally your BFFs, and get your holiday crawl on ASAP.
