Spruce things up a bit and join the crew for a special holiday kick-off event.
Rick Cervantes and Marvin Hanashiro are feelin' fine and so will you when you join them for their inaugural Hillcrest Santa Crawl this Saturday*.
For many years Rick has dreamed of getting good friends together and making new ones during the holidays. He thought organizing a community bar crawl was a way to do it. And he has, with a little help.
"I'm so glad my good friend Marvin, who’s an expert event organizer, joined me to co-host the event," he says. "I first saw got the idea after seeing the annual Santa Skivvies run that the San Francisco AIDS Foundation organizes. While that event raises funds and ours, for now, is just for fun, who knows what will happen in the future."
The crawl covers five of Hillcrest's best social destinations including its newest gay bar, Tin Room San Diego.
Making your way through the historic neighborhood will include several stops for cocktails, gaiety and maybe some surprises throughout the afternoon.
And Sleigh queen, sleigh! Don't be shy about dressing up in your best Santa themed threads for the occasion. Wear whatever soots you then take an elfie.
Here are some guidelines:
-Attire is either Santa-themed (sexy, regular, leather, etc.) or any holiday-inspired attire (onesie, tacky holiday sweater, etc.).
-There will be prizes for the top 3 best outfits!
While they encourage great costumes and outfits, they also just want a fun group to be there! Do your best to join in the theme, but they don’t want you to stress over it either!
The Rick & Marvin Santa Crawl will make you feel extra Santa-mental and if you miss it, yule be sorry.
