Les Cinq Eiffels®: The Five Eiffels is based on five magical Eiffel Tower paintings that come to life at night in the Louvre.  These five mischievous friends like to go on adventures together throughout the night.

CANCELED! Cleveland Animals Bar Crawl – Saturday, April 25, 2020

Thank you to everyone wanting to donate the proceeds of their shirts back to us. To clarify, the shirts were not in production prior to the decision being made to cancel the event. Therefore, it is the company policy to return funds to the buyers as there is no product to give to the buyer.

We are so grateful to Morgan, Stephen and Vince who have organized and executed this fantastically fun event for the past seven years. Safety always is our first priority. Since the Cleveland Animals Bar Crawl attracts more than 2,000 participants, it will not be feasible or safe to move forward with it this year. This event’s revenue means so much to the Cleveland APL and the animals it helps. Last year it raised nearly $30,000 that allowed us to provide lifesaving care to so many animals. We hope you will consider supporting the APL during these unprecedented times by donating your shirt cost back (or more) to the APL.

In the meantime, we hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and kind. We look forward to working with our friends from the Cleveland Animals Bar Crawl for 2021.
