The Atlantic Avenue BID is sponsoring its second annual Halloween Pub Crawl this Saturday, Oct. 25, 8pm to 2am on Atlantic Avenue between the BQE and 4th Avenue. This year crawlers will get to experience a DJ'd pub crawl soundtrack all night long with BBOX Internet radio (http://www.bboxradio.com/) broadcasting live from the Hollow Nickel pub on Atlantic Avenue.
The theme for costumes and music is "Remember the 80s" and BBOX won't let crawlers forget any genre or style from emergent hip hop to classic rock to New Wave. BBOX is going all out with 4 DJs, 2 MCs, & 2 street team folks keeping us dancing and entertained all night long. Revellers will also be treated to a live social media stream with curated tweets, photos, and posts from the night that will be on display in several of the bars.
A wristband ($5 in advance, $8 at the door), available at http://atlanticavebid.ticketleap.com/hauntlantic/details, will give participants access to drink specials and will allow participants to enter the costume contest.
The top costume prizes include a $50 gift certificate for food and drink at Hollow Nickel.
The first 7 participants who arrive in costume at each of four check-in locations will get a free limited edition pub crawl 2014 t-shirt. The check-in locations are Montero's (73 Atlantic Avenue at Hicks St.); The Brazen Head (228 Atlantic Avenue near Court St.);
