The best way to gather energy for a night of crawling is enjoying a good meal--and downtown/Fourth Avenue offers a variety of fantastic dining options.
Several restaurants and cafés are participating in this spring's Club Crawl™. Most will be providing early entertainment as Club Crawlers prepare for their big night. And, let's face it: It makes a lot of sense to get downtown early and avoid the rush.
