UPDATE (11/17/20): We are canceling the 2020 Cocoa Crawl due to the COVID crisis. Hope to host again in December 2021!
Grab a Takoma Mug and enjoy cocoa* at area restaurants and cafes during the Takoma Cocoa Crawl! Make one stop or many. Adult versions available too.
Get your Takoma mug anytime at Old Takoma Ace Hardware, 7001 Carroll Ave or Artspring, 7002 Carroll Ave. Mugs from previous crawls welcome! Proceeds from mug sales go to Main Street Takoma to fund community initiatives.
Music and Games
