FOLKS! It’s that time of year again!!! Winker Pub Crawl is BACK!!! 

Sunday, April 7th is the day…

and for the 10th anniversary, as usual Crawlers will hit up some of Austin’s most storied venues and support live music all around Austin AND raise money for a deserving non-profit. Of course we are inspired by everyone’s favorite man about town and famous Depot star- Winker!!!!

We’re happy to be the starting venue for this annual Live Music Pub Crawl benefitting @thechf !!! If you’re unfamiliar with The Children’s Heart Foundation, they’re a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides funding for groundbreaking research that help babies born with congenital heart defects (and its personal- Depot Employee Michelle has a son with a CHD.) 

Your favorite whiskey & gin cocktails provided by good friends and chief sponsors @stillatx …Tasty Food is provided by @torchystacos … delicious beer coming in hot from @austinbeerworks and awesome raffle/prizes too! 

If your looking to support live music/live music venues in Austin, have fun on eclipse weekend, support a deserving non-profit and hang out with the patron saint of Austin music Venues, Winker- you’re in the right place:)

If you can’t make it but want to support the cause, check out our link in bio. For tickets, link in bio:)
