The Pub Crawl is now the Troll Stroll, but otherwise the event is same one that started back in 2002.Tori's Pub Crawlers have been updated to Tori's Troll Strollers to reflect the new event name as well. The Strollers and The Fightin' G-Gnomes Drinking Team were part of a sellout crowd of 1,000 people focusing on the best fundraising method ever invented - drinking beer.
$37.40 got you a 7-ounce beer at each of the six participating taverns, food specials, a t-shirt and a whole lot of fun. There's also an awesome afterparty featuring The Senate, Seattle's rock and roll string band, at the Nectar Lounge. The Strollers were a quintet this year, with an all-veteran crew of Robert, Carol, Tom Eksten, Connie Blumen and Robert (The Rock) Foxworthy.
