“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.” Or crawl, that is.

Step Out Buffalo is getting boo-zey this Halloween (what else do you do on Halloween, tbh) for our first ever Crawling Dead: A Halloween Bar Crawl. On October 28th, come in your best costume, scary or sweet, for a six hour crawl along North Buffalo’s Hertel Ave. More than just a boo-zey bar crawl, The Crawling Dead is an evening of both tricks and treats (mostly treats, obv) at Hertel’s most popular bars and restaurants featuring spook-tastic drink specials, tasty food, giveaways, psychic readings and lots of fun surprises all night long.

More than a dozen bars and restaurants will be offering drink discounts and food specials on Saturday, October 28th from 5-11pm including everything from beer to wine to cocktails to food, plus all bars will feature $3 shots of Jägermeister, the Exclusive Shot of the Crawling Dead: A Halloween Bar Crawl. Hollaaaaa!



Here’s how it works:

The Crawling Dead: Halloween Bar Crawl is a choose-your-own-adventure style crawl. Crawlers will check in at the SOB headquarters at North Park Theatre on Hertel Ave where they will get a wristband and a map of participating bars + restaurants and their discounts. From there we invite crawlers to explore and enjoy the featured bars in whatever order they want while also receiving exclusive crawl perks at each spot. Dress to impress in your best Halloween costume for a chance to win over $1000 in prizes, including cash prizes, a Labatt Kegerator, Magic Hat cooler, and SOB swag plus goodies at the door. Into it? We like your style. Get your tickets here!

Drink discounts at participating bars will include $3 shots of Jägermeister, the Exclusive Shot of The Crawling Dead: Halloween Bar Crawl; drink specials and giveaways from Labatt USA & Magic Hat Brewing Company, the Featured Beers of The Crawling Dead: Halloween Bar Crawl; plus a variety of other specials on booze & noms that will let attendees taste the very best of what each bar has to offer.

Tickets are on sale now for $10 presale, $8.75 if you buy ’em in packs of 4, and will be available at the door for $15, but getting them now guarantees you have plans for All Hallow’s Eve and that you’ll be hanging out with us. (the only way to avoid fomo, tbh)
