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.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
