    It's time to start pimping out your blanket with sleeves for the Chicago Snuggie Pub Crawl.

    The second annual event will be held April 10 from 12-8 p.m. in Lincoln Park.

    While wearing a traditional plain blue Snuggie is a fashion statement in itself, many of the pub crawlers add their own flair. Last year we saw Cougar Snuggies, Snuggie Cops, Geisha Snuggies -- you name it.

    The following bars have signed up for the pub crawl:

    Lion Head Pub & The Apartment (2251 N. Lincoln Ave.) will host live entertainment throughout the event, including a closing ceremony with prize giveaways.

    Last year's event raised nearly $20,000 for an orphanage in Tanzania and this year's event will benefit another orphanage
