    We know you're thinking about it -- put the Snuggie Pub Crawl on your calendar today.

    Unless you've been living under that proverbial rock, you've likely heard about the famed Snuggie Pub Crawl by now. 

    If you haven't, we KNOW you've heard of a Snuggie, the wearable blanket with sleeves.  Regardless, there are some new details since our last post to share so you're not left out in the cold, snuggie-less and sad. The Snuggie Pub Crawl is set for Saturday, April 18 (the date was changed from the original date of March 21st to allow more time for Snuggie-purchase and for bars to prepare for the sheer volume of Snuggie-wearing beer-lovers; this is probably a good thing, because St. Patty's Day and a Snuggie Pub Crawl in the same month would just be madness!)

    The crawl will be held on Lincoln Avenue, with possible bars including John Barleycorn, The Lion's Head Pub and The Apartment.  The organizers say they're working with the bars and liquor and beer distributors to create some good drink specials and keep the cost of wristband prices low.  According to the official Snuggie Pub Crawl web site, more than 2,300 people have signed up for the big day. That's a lot of fleecy fabric. 

    Don't forget, it's BYOS – Bring Your OWN Snuggie. You can purchase Snuggies at local retailers like Walgreens, or order them online by this Saturday, Feb. 28 to ensure delivery before the pub crawl. And a nice side note, the SnuggiePubCrawl.com team is donating proceeds from the event to the AC-Orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania.

    P.S.  Apparently there are Snuggie alternatives: The Freedom Blanket and The Slanket.  We'd love to know the subtle differences – has anyone test driven all three who can share?
