9th Annual Montrose Crawl Comes To Westheimer October 31
The Montrose Crawl is almost a decade old, entering its 9th year this October 31. The tradition, where revelers dress up and flood the neighborhood with Halloween spirit, continues with the help of bars and restaurants along Westheimer.
Participants this year include Poison Girl (the starting point), Pistolero’s, Free Press, Boondocks, Stone’s Throw, Etro Lounge, Catbirds, Royal Oak, Doc’s Motorworks, Slick Willie’s, El Real Tex-Mex, Hay Merchant and food trucks Burger Joint, Koagie Hots and the Golden Grill.
If you’ve never been, here’s how it works: You show up in costume. Meet up at Poison Girl around 7 p.m. and crawl your way down Westheimer. There are several costume contests throughout the night at participating venues with finalists entering one last competition at Slick Willie’s at midnight. A grand-prize winner will be crowned by at-large council member Steve Costello to end the event.
There are no costs to join the Montrose Crawl and participating bars will not require covers or drink minimums. Part of drink proceeds are donated to the Houston Area Women’s Center — the official charity of the non-profit event.
