Santa Claus is coming to town. Actually, hundreds of Santa Clauses are coming to downtown Reno, as we celebrate the Seventh Annual Reno Santa Pub Crawl this weekend (Dec. 13) at dozens of downtown Reno watering holes.
The crawl begins at three downtown Reno bars including: Amendment 21 (425 South Virginia St.), Imperial Bar and Lounge (306 E. 4th St.) and the Underground (555 East 4th St.). More than 27 pubs, bars and watering holes are taking part in the crawl. Santas will convene under the Reno Arch with the backdrop of a vibrant casino and gaming district at midnight to ring in the Christmas season and sing Christmas carols. An after party will take place at 210 North located at 210 N. Sierra St.
The crawl is open to any aspiring Saint Nick, elf or anyone with Christmas spirit, and proceeds from the event will go to the Hashimoto Widows and Orphans Fund, benefiting the families of fallen law-enforcement officers from agencies in the Reno-Sparks area. A check for $5,000 will be presented the night of the event.
So break out your Santa, Mrs. Claus or even elf outfit and join one of the largest gatherings of Kris Kringles in the West. The fun starts at 7:30 p.m.
