Drink for a good cause this weekend at a Ballston bar crawl benefiting those who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Seven Ballston bars are participating in the Saturday afternoon event, which begins at the Front Page and makes its way to Union Jack's, Rock Bottom Brewery, Bailey’s Pub & Grille, A-Town Bar and Grill, Carpool and First Down Sports Bar.
Proceeds from the event go to Delaware Coast Aid, which, according to its website, is a group that helps raise money for restoring the coast. The organization works with the Delware-based nonprofit Center for Inland Bays that promotes education, protection and recovery efforts.
“It’s a great cause and a great way to unite all the restaurants in Ballston,” said Emily Garber, events and marketing manager for Front Page.
In addition to the crawl, participants can collect a playing card from every bar and come back to the Front Page at the end of the event. A final hand of poker will determine the ultimate winner.
The event also features a raffle with prizes including $100 gift cards to local businesses.
The bar crawl begins at noon Saturday at the Front Page in Arlington at 4201 Wilson Blvd. Registration is $10 or $15 for registration and a T-shirt. For more information, visit Front Page online.
