A six bar crawl is not one for the ages. It’s a little light and you end up with too much drinking and not enough walking. This is exacerbated when the first bar (Wig and Pen) is at capacity before kickoff time and another (North) is booked out for a private function.
When your crawl has several hundred participants there are limits to what you can do though. The smaller bars just don’t have the capacity for it.
But light as the santa bar crawl may be, there’s just something about hundreds of people dressed as Santa (or very naughty elves) which makes it very special.
Last night was my first one as a participant and I recommend it thoroughly.
Santa outfits are hot things to wear, even light weight cheap ones. They’re rather lacking by way of pockets too, so a smart santa needs a man-bag. But at the end of the day who cares? It’s one night of silly fun with lots of beer.
It was also a chance to re-visit bars like Mooseheads and ICBM which I haven’t darkened the doors of in many a year. It’s a little scary realising just how small ICBM is.
If you missed it, well, only 364 sleeps until the next one.
