Santa Claus Pub Crawl

Santa Claus Pub Crawl – Various Cities
Because what could possibly be more holly or jolly than dressing up like good ‘ole Saint Nick and having a drink (or a few) with thousands of similarly decked-out strangers? Santa Claus pub crawls take place all around the world (this one’s in London) but the annual event in Wollongong, Australia is one of the oldest.

Superhero Crawl

Superhero Crawl

Superhero Crawl – Reno, Nevada
Pull up your tights, grab your cape and get ready to “save the world, one drink at a time.” You’ll need the stamina of a superhero to survive this pub crawl, which continues until the bars close. Don’t forget your mask-- you’ll want to keep your identity concealed as you stagger home.

The Subcrawl

The Subcrawl

The Subcrawl – Glasgow, UK
Glasgow’s circular subway line has inspired a rather unique challenge: buy an all-day pass and get off at each of the 15 stops for a drink at the closest bar. You deserve a serious pat on the back (and probably a cab home) if you make it all the way around. Just to keep things interesting, subcrawlers are required to ride the train without sitting down or holding on, a practice known as “subsurfing.”

Pirate Pub Crawl

Pirate Pub Crawl

Pirate Pub Crawl – Florida
Ahoy matey! Why wait for International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th — in case you didn’t already know) to talk like a pirate? In fact, why not combine talking like a pirate, dressing like a pirate AND drinking like one, too! This guided pub crawl in Dunedin, FL, even includes a history lesson about the most notorious pirates in Tampa Bay history. Yo ho ho … and a bottle of rum.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

Tacky Christmas Sweater

Tacky Christmas Sweater Bar Crawl – Washington, DC
Let’s face it – that Christmas sweater that Granny got you is way too embarrassing to wear to anything BUT a theme party, so here’s your chance! Helpful hint: the more 3-dimensional, the better, and sweater vests tend to increase the tackiness.

Zombie Pub Crawl – Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota
No, this is not a scene out of “Dawn of the Dead,” (admittedly, the makeup was a bit better in the movie). It’s just a zombie pub crawl! Head to Minneapolis/ St. Paul to party like it’s your last day on earth or like you’re already dead.

Work your way around the London monopoly board on this ambitious pub crawl, with 26 stops at 26 pubs for each of the 26 streets featured in the game. Unfortunately, none of the pubs offer “Get Out of Jail Free” cards – so be sure to stick to half pints.

Participants wear headsets and dance from bar to bar listening to an MP3 player on this seriously wacky pub crawl.
