Anyone who is sweet on doughnut holes, thirsty for Bloody Marys or craving savory breakfast tacos to start their day might want to eat up the offerings at the You’re Bacon Me Crazy Brunch Crawl next weekend in downtown Chandler.

Downtown Chandler Community Partnership is organizing the gathering, allowing people to walk to several different restaurants to buy a small bite and alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink for $7 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. June 9.

Customers can buy tickets ahead of time or at the event. The cost is $15 through June 8 and $20 at the door.

The price covers You’re Bacon Me Crazy branded sunglasses and a wristband giving them access to each participating business.

Many of the restaurants taking part in the brunch crawl will provide live music and free bingo.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to experience the many brunch spots in Downtown Chandler that they may not have had before now,” said Mary Murphy-Bessler, Downtown Chandler Community Partnership executive director.

“Additionally, the $7 deal allows them to try a variety (of) bites at each place instead of just one big meal. There is a good mix of both sweet and savory options, and a little bit of spice to wake up your taste buds. Brunch is the best of both worlds.”

“Since our restaurants are known for using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, you don’t have to skimp on quality either,” she added.

These are the restaurants participating in the brunch crawl and what they will offer:

Murphy’s Law Irish Pub: Champagne and a small skillet of corned beef with bell peppers, as well as onions, potatoes and green cabbage hash covered with a fried egg.

SanTan Brewery: The mini New Mexican Skillet (with hash browns, mixed cheese, roasted poblanos, onions, one fried egg, chipotle asado sauce and diners’ choice of meat: spicy chicken, Devil’s Ale braised short rib or pork carnitas). Also includes a five-ounce pour of any beer.

West Alley BBQ: Biscuits and gravy, along with a Bacon Bloody Mary or mimosa.

Bourbon Jacks: Signature Bloody Mary, as well as a skewered breakfast sandwich (with egg, cheddar cheese, green chili and bacon).

The Local Chandler: Homemade cinnamon sugar doughnut holes and an Opera Prima Mimosa, as well as free Bingo.

Crust: One slice of pizza (either cheese or breakfast-style), along with a five-ounce Raspberry Moscow Mule.

Las Palmas Cantina: One taco paired with a small side of chips, salsa and guacamole, as well as a mimosa.

Flix Brewhouse: One Flix Egg & Bacon taco, paired with hatch chile queso and salsa and a (There Will Be) Bloody Mary.

“The You’re Bacon Me Crazy Brunch Crawl is a great way to get out and explore Downtown Chandler,” Murphy-Bessler said. “Since the crawl is self-guided, guests can stop in our many retail options like Blue Planet, Sibley’s West: the Chandler and Arizona Gift Shop, Shoe Thrill, Saba’s Western Wear and more.

“They can also stop for selfies at our mural walls on Overstreet near FLIX Brewhouse. There’s something for everyone here in Downtown.”

Parking will be available at five parking garages, as well as on surface streets for free.
