There’s less than a week to go until Olde Burien gets turned into “Von Boorianland Uber Alles” when SW 152nd will be transformed into a German village for the first-ever “Brat Trot” fundraiser race and pub crawl.

In case you haven’t heard about it, here are the basics:

The Brat Trot fundraiser race is being “braut” to you by The Tin Room and Dan the Sausageman with help from the good peeps who helped run the Cove to Clover Race back in March (which raised $12K), with proceeds benefiting:

But this isn’t just another fun run fundraiser folks – no, this one has a full mythology, with characters, a bizarre backstory, talking sausages and all the plot elements of a compelling rags to riches and back to rags story that can only be understood by showing up at the event(s).

Here are the details of the pre-function Pub Crawl the night before the race (Sat. Oct. 3rd):

  • 6pm: Starts at The Tin Room, where you’ll pick up an official crawl bib # for just $10.
  • You’ll then “crawl” to at least five of the official local stops (see list below) for “crawl drink and food specials.”
  • At each you will gather visitation stickers to qualify for a fabulous door prize drawing to be held at The Tin Room at 11pm.
  • 11pm: Return to the Tin Room – Burien’s own “Yodeling Dominatrix” Manuela Horn, fresh from her stint on “America’s Got Talent!” will serve as MC. Now if you missed Manuela’s family-friendly yodeling performance at Saturday’s Oktoberfest in Town Square, you’ll be happy to know that her busty, adult alter-ego will make a leather-clad and whip appearance Saturday night at 11pm at The Tin Room near the end of the Pub Crawl!
  • Dress in traditional German costumes (not just a hat with feather) or come dressed as a beautiful Bratwurst (even better) and you crawl for free (well, actually you’ve paid with your self respect in the case of the brat suit).
  • There will be numerous specials from area business worth crawling to, such as:
    • La Costa: House Margarita $4; La Costa Nachos $5.25
    • Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub: Alaskan Amber $2.50; Mini corned beef sandwiches $1
    • The Mark: German Beer specials; Brat & Kraut appetizers; Play “Find the Brat” (in the kraut bowl)
    • Vino Bello: $5 wine tastings
    • Elliott Bay Brewhouse & Pub: Happy Hour prices on beer and wine; Brat Sampler
    • Bison Creek Pizza & Pub: Bud Light $2; Breadsticks & Garlic Bread $2; Chrome Molly plays (AC/DC tribute band)
    • Burien Press: Free espresso shot; Art Open House
    • The Hobnobber(!): Budweiser $2; Bag of Chips $1
    • The House Collier Catering
    • 909 Coffee & Wine
    • Primo de Osteria
  • Door Prizes will be provided by BTB Advertiser Highline Athletic Club

At last weekend's Oktoberfest, a "Robrat" was spotted doing The Robot in Town Square.

Also, on race day, a very special slate of entertainment will be performing near the Tin Room, featuring:

  • Brat and Kraut Feed
  • Pictures with Brats
  • Root Beer Garden (free hotdogs and root beer for the kids)
