The Annual Beach Cities Holiday Tradition
The 12 Bars of Christmas is as much a part of the landscape of the Los Angeles South Bay Beach Cities as the holiday strolls, boat parades and the spectacular Manhattan Beach fireworks.
It consists of 50+ people visiting the local watering holes in Hermosa Beach, all attired in Christmas costumes and/or Santa hats, to celebrate the season.Click here for details on the 2016 12 Bars of Christmas! This is the 21st annual 12 Bars.
The meeting spot is Sharkeez at 6 p.m. The group will stay there until 7:30, then go to Fenner’s for an extended Happy Hour, then the Underground Pub.
Other locations are sure to be Chelsea Pub (petty much by default since it’s connected to the Underground), Patrick Molloy’s, the Mermaid, Poop Deck, Waterman’s, Hennessey’s and Barnacles.
The event is free but to get designated drink specials at the bars, you’ll need a badge. See Keith or Nick for this at Sharkeez.
This is NOT a pub crawl – the sometimes odd-thinking Hermosa Beach City Council has outlawed such outlandish happenings – but a gathering of good friends, some familiar and others made just for the night who just happen to wind up at the various bars at the Pier at the same time.
