Will's Famous Seattle Pub Crawl
Not ready to quit until next year? Make Summit last just a few hours longer and join Will Anderson for a Downtown Seattle pub crawl! From the event venue, please take a cab, Uber, or Lyft to our first pub. From there, we'll ask the bartender (who better?) where to head next, and make that the pattern for the evening. There'll be ample opportunities to grab a snack or meal throughout the evening. We ask that you not join us if you are driving a vehicle - please use a cab or rideshare company.
