There's been a lot of hype for quite a while about the upcoming Snuggie Pub Crawl. The time is almost here, Snuggie fans. Rest up this weekend, because next Saturday, April 18 from noon to 8 p.m. is the long-awaited procession of folks draped in wearable blankets.
Now that the weather is warming up a bit, maybe you can even wear your Snuggie with very little under it. Oh wait – scratch that – the back of the Snuggie is open and breezy. You don't want to be mooning all of Lincoln Park with your pale, bare, er, assets. The good people at The Apartment, Lions Head Pub, John Barleycorn's, Kendall's, Kelsey's, Omalley's, Halligan's and Sterch's probably wouldn't appreciate that too much.
There will be all sorts of drink specials at each stop of the pub crawl, and some great raffle prizes like Chicago BlackHawk playoff tickets, Cubs bleachers tickets and Lollapalooza passes. You must be present at the time of the raffle to win, so time your beverage intake accordingly.
Buy tickets online in advance for $22 or pay $25 the day of the crawl. Tickets are limited to 2,500, so act soon. And BYO Snuggie. Don't be that guy who shows up to the Snuggie Pub Crawl snuggie-less. Just don't.
