The Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation held its first Bloody Mary Bar Crawl Fundraiser in Pittsburgh’s South Side on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Registration began at 2:30pm at the Double Wide Grill. Each participant received an event t-shirt and a wristband to get them Bloody Mary and Tito’s Handmade Vodka drink specials at the participating bars. The wristbands also gave them access to the after-party held at Foxtail. There were 7 participating bars including: Double Wide Grill, Tiki Lounge, Steel Cactus, Local Kitchen+Bar, The Flats on Carson, Super Happy Fun Time Bar and Arcade, and Foxtail.
Participants enjoyed a variety of different Bloody Mary cocktails at each of the participating bars and, at the end, voted for the bar that had their favorite Bloody Mary. Volunteers were stationed at each of the bars, selling raffle tickets and giving out prizes to the participants. Zombies from the Scarehouse were set up at Local Kitchen+Bar with a prize wheel. A Halloween costume contest was held and all of the participants were able to vote for the Most Original, Funniest, and Scariest Costumes.
The after-party at Foxtail included a taco bar catered by Steel Cactus and an assortment of appetizers from Local Kitchen + Bar. Kiss 96.1 Radio DJ, Hughes, was our MC for the night announcing the winners of the Halloween Costume Contest, the bar with the best Bloody Mary, and the raffle winners.
