Blog:The Secret Aspie- Whirlwind

When the others integrated and my mind deconstructed them it was not a conscious decision but it felt right. It felt like it was time. It also wasn’t an instant thing that happened but over a few days. I couldn’t tell you how many exactly but more than a couple and less than a week. 

During the process it seemed to be a continual process in the back of my mind. If I can explain

Video:Jason Love- 2017 Zombie Apocalypse Pub Crawl – 360deg Video

360deg Zombie Video. The Milwaukee Zombie Pub Crawl took place on October 14, 2017.

From the 2017 Zombie Apocalypse Pub Crawl Facebook Page:
Zombies are on the rise once again. It’s time for the fourth-annual MKE Zombie Apocalypse, and we’re expecting it to be more epic than ever… as we’re moving the event to Walker’s Point!

Registration begins at 4:00 at Hamburger Mary’s, where you can put the finishing touches on your make-up (we’ll have a make-up artist on hand!), and get a head-start on the Zombie Punch.
The crawl will depart Hamburger Mary’s at 5pm SHARP!

From there, the hordes of zombies will be led on multiple routes to participating Walker’s Point bars , where they will enjoy drink specials and BrAiiInS!

The zombie path of destruction will include: Snifter’s, Fat Daddy’s, Brenner Brewing, Mary’s Beercade, DIX, Walker’s Pint and Little Whisket Bar!

At the end of the crawl, you are invited to the “MONSTERS’ BALL” at D.I.X., where the party will continue into the night!

Advance tickets are $25, with proceeds benefiting The Rescue Gang and the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. Ticket price also includes a souvenir Zombie Pub Crawl T-Shirt and an event cup (for the drink specials). You’ll need to purchase tickets at least one week in advance to guarantee you’ll get a T-Shirt! (though we will be ordering extra, we may not have enough of all sizes)

Advance ticket sales will end 24 hours before the event. Tickets at the door will be more!

So dig up your best un-dead duds and hit the town with us!
