Zombie Pub Crawl returning to Tampa’s SoHo district

Zombies are known for their shuffling, but don’t be surprised to see a few of them straight-out stumbling between the bars on South Howard Avenue this weekend.

The annual SoHo Zombie Pub Crawl returns to the Tampa nightlife hub for a third year Saturday, and will bring a hoard of costumed zombies out for food and drink specials at nine bars and restaurants along the route.

The pub crawl starts with registration at Irish 31 at 3 p.m. and will make stops at The Wine Exchange, The Lodge, Mangroves SoHo, Dubliner Irish Pub, Yard of Ale, World of Beer, Cheap, The Drynk and MacDinton’s .

General admission registration is $20 and includes discounts on drinks such as zombie ties, zombie brains, witches brew and blood light (aka red Bud Light). VIZ (very important zombie) tickets are $50 and include drinks at each stop, plus a food buffet at MacDinton’s.

Zombies are encouraged to show up in full zombie costume, but make-up artists will be there to give zombie makeovers for $10 per person.

The crawl will include a contest with prizes for the scariest, sexiest and funniest zombies.

Proceeds will go to help Make-A-Wish Central and North Florida.

Tickets are available at the Soho Zombie Pub Crawl website. A full schedule and list of drink specials are available at the event’s Facebook page.
