Beast Crawl 2012: Huge First Annual East Bay Literature Pub Crawl

  • Jul 7, 2012 · 4:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Beast Crawl is Uptown Oakland’s first annual literary “pub” crawl!

It's a free festival featuring more than 125 poets, writers, and performance artists in a single night, spread out over three hours and 25 local galleries, bars, restaurants, cafés, and storefronts.

Check out the Beast Crawl map & start planning your route. All of the locations are near the BART stations at 12th Street and 19th Street.

1st leg: 5pm to 6pm
2nd leg: 6:30pm to 7:30pm
3rd leg: 8pm to 9pm
4th leg: 9pm (After Party at Club Paradiso)

For more updates, follow Beast Crawl on Twitter @beastcrawl

We'll meet at 4:30 pm in front of the venue that is closest to 12th Street BART, Radio Bar, to allow everyone enough time to arrive, and we'll wander from there. I will send out my Google Voice number so you can text me.

This is a joint event with another Meetup Group.

    Shawn, thanks! I'm glad you had fun : ) I do have Litquake on my radar, and I can't wait! They said that over 7,000 people attended last year! Thanks for the tip about getting there early ; - )

    Diana, Thanks for hosting the event! I had a great time. LitQuake in SF (October) has been going on for a long time and is amazing! They have years of experience so they are on top of the details but it is also so packed that you have to get to each venue quite early if you want to get in. It was good to meet you!

    Joy, you're very welcome! It *was* definitely a new experience, and I learned about some new-to-me venues as well! Hope to meet you at a future event. Everyone else whom I met in the group was SUPER NICE! : D

    This was a really cool and unique event. I learned that it's a big hit in Chicago! Can't wait to see how they improve upon it next year.

    Patricia, the crawl is what you make of it, so you can decide how much walking you would like to do. Reference the map above to show your friend the locations of the poetry stops. I don't yet have a firm schedule yet. http://beastcrawl.tumblr.com/map
