Or sample cuisine from any of 20 restaurants during Sunday’s “MAINopoly: A Taste of Main Street”

Main Street becomes a real-life Monopoly board for eating, drinking and merriment

The classic board game Monopoly gets a grownup twist along Main Street in Santa Monica this Sunday with “MAINopoly: A Taste of Main Street,” when restaurants and bars along this popular party drag open their doors for tastings and drink specials to raise funds for Heal the Bay.

Feed your seafood craving with fresh fish ceviche at Enterprise Fish Co., find falafel at Bareburger, sip some cold brew at Espresso Cielo, and satisfy your sweet tooth at Dolcenero Gelato, serving up samples of — what else? — gelato.

If you’re in the mood for something sweet and savory, hit up Areal Restaurant for their chicken and waffles. And if you’re feeling thirsty, skim the street for $5 cocktails or shots and $4 draft beer specials.

And if you really want to live large, this is the one night that going to jail could be a good thing — metaphorically speaking, of course. [Please drink responsibly, K? ;)] A “Go to Jail” VIP Beer Garden hosted by Shock Top features a deejay, photo booth, snacks and games.

Masters of MAINopoly who check off all 20-or-so locations on the board get an invite to the official after party at Pink Elephant and entered to a win a prize package of gift certificates and goodies.

So “pass go” many times, kids.
