MARTA to the Atlanta Santa Pub Crawl

For a pub crawl full of costumes, drinks and Toys for Tots donations, check out the yearly Atlanta Santa Pub Crawl (December 10, 2011). Located around the Crescent Avenue bars and clubs in Midtown, the evening begins at Front Page News for wrist bands and toy drop-off.  It is very convenient to MARTA, almost in between two MARTA stations, Midtown and Arts Center on the red/gold rail line.

The Midtown Station is slightly closer.  Take the main exit out of the station and turn right on 10th Street.  At the first stoplight, turn left on Peachtree Street and walk to 11th Street and turn left again.  At Crescent Avenue turn right and walk about a block (see walking map).

Several bus routes feed in to the Midtown Station as well if you live along or near 10th Street by Georgia Tech or Howell Mill (bus 12), Piedmont Avenue, Cheshire Bridge Road (bus 27) , 10th Street by Piedmont Park, Monroe Drive south of the park (bus 99) and Virginia Avenue, N. Highland Avenue north of Virginia Avenue and Emory University along North Decatur Road (bus 36).  Be sure to check bus schedules as some routes, such as 36, end early in the evening.  Or if you are staying in a hotel along Peachtree Street or live nearby, bus 110 runs up and down the street, so just board the bus and exit at 11th Street (look for the large Federal Reserve building).
