Zombie Happy Hour Crawl in downtown San Jose

(Located on the corner of S. 1st and Williams Street, across from the SJ Quilting Museum)

Okay Zombies and Zombie wanna-be's. Now's your time to see and be seen!

This is a totally fun event for people of all ages. You don't need to dress up as "The Undead", but you can easily pick up all things Undead at the vendors booths  -- like fake blood, etc. Or, for a $5 donation you can have a make-up artist give you a  "Zombie" makeover.

Lots of food trucks will be there and several bars and restaurants downtown are offering discounts to those who add a dash of  "Undead" to their normal attire. The Zombie Crawl is fun, and you simply cannot find people/zombie watching better than this in the South Bay!

The movie Zombie Land is part of San Jose's free outdoor Starlight movie series and will begin at 9:00.  This particular Meet Up does NOT include the movie, but you can always stay and watch it if you like. 

We will meet at  Parque de los Pobladores, South First and William Streets at 6:00.   I may get there earlier to get my "makeover". My cell is[masked] in case anyone else gets there early,too. Once we have seen enough Zombies to drive us to drink we will "crawl" to various establishment for wine or frosty adult zombie beverages.

Easy access to the light rail and several parking garages nearby.


Here is the link.

    How can you not have fun when you are surrounded by the Undead? As usual this is a fun, interesting, smart group of people!

    a special thanks to Betsy for organizing the "zombies" in us. We will have to plan better for next year's "avatars".

    Calling all Zombies and Zombie-ettes!

    Zombi-licious fun starts today at 6:00 in downtown San Jose!

    For those of you that want a specific address in which to meet: MACLA, the Arte y Cultura Latino Americana Gallery is right across the street from the park. It will be easier to find each other there than in the park itself. In case you don't recognize me, I'll be the Zombie in the Pink sneakers. MACLA, 510 S 1st St, San Jose. Cross Street: Williams

    I will get there closer to 5:00 for my Zombie make-over. If any of you get there early (or late) my cell is[masked] and we will sync up.

    Apologies that I can't arrive until later as last minute have to work late. Very sad that I will unfortunately miss the entire crawl :-( but will try to catch a least part of the show/contest, and film.
