While many folks will be celebrating their rich Irish heritage (and wannabe’s too) this coming weekend at various St. Patrick’s Day Belltown events, there’s a pub crawl for a good cause going on right here; the 4th Annual Team Blitz Pub Crawl in Belltown!
Team Blitz is led by team captain, Ryan Asdourian – the Seahawks mascot, Blitz. The Seahawks team has supported Asdourian since 2008, when the man behind the mascot was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. For the past three years, his Team Blitz Pub Crawl has raised awareness about MS in Seattle, as well as raising money toward a cure. Learn more about the crawl and Team Blitz in this recent King 5 news feature.
Since year one, with 125 participants and $6,000 raised, to last year where 325 people came out for the pub crawl and raised $12,000, Asdourian has high hopes for the 4th annual pub crawl: $100,000! Check out the website to watch the Team get closer to their goal, donate, and mark your calendar for the Pub Crawl on Saturday March 16th and the Walk MS event on April 14th.
The pub crawl begins at Buckley’s in Belltown, and ends at Belltown Billiards this Saturday. Attendees (21+ only) can get tickets to the crawl here, with four drinks and a T-shirt for $35 plus fees (tickets day-of are $40). You can donate there, too. Bars that are confirmed to participate in the crawl are Buckley’s, Amber, Belltown Pizza, Belltown Pub, the Frontier Room, and Belltown Billiards.
When: Saturday, March 16th from 2:30 to 7 p.m.
Where: Belltown, Seattle, beginning at Buckley’s in Belltown
Cost: $35 until March 16th, day of event tickets are $40
