Default Hou: St. Arnold's Pub Crawl - Nov. 9th

Taken from the official email:

OUR 13th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS ALE PUB CRAWL, PART I, WILL BE THIS FRIDAY, NOV 9 This will be our North Village Pub Crawl with a civilized 4 stops. We are sticking with our "open house" schedule for the first 3 stops. This means that we will be signing tickets at all three of the first three stops for three hours so people can split up between the establishments. You will get your ticket at whichever stop you decide to visit first. But, VERY IMPORTANT, we will only be handing out the tickets between 6 PM and 7 PM (or very shortly thereafter). Thus, you still need to start between 6 and 7. Then, at 9 PM, everybody will gather at one final stop and that is where we will award the glasses. The prize for making all four stops will be our St. Arnold pub crawl pint glass until supplies of these run out. Then it will be Christmas Ale pint glasses (new and improved for 2007!) We will have a large but limited supply of glasses. And as always, designated drivers are both eligible for the award and encouraged to attend! So here is the layout and our vague directions, now with 100% more hints!

The first three locations (at which we will be simultaneously between 6 PM and 9 PM):
One will be somewhere on Dunstan between Kelvin and Morningside. Sounds like a Scottish pub.
One will be on Kirby between Robinhood and Quemby. Think of New Orleans nicknames.
One will be on Quemby between Kirby and Kelvin. Half of Hans and Franz.
At 9 PM, we will proceed from these three locations up Morningside to Bissonnet and look for someplace to congregate! There will be bratwurst with sauerkraut available here as well. Think: hot lava.

Now, for our annual tips for maximum enjoyment:

1. PRECOATING: Try to eat something before commencing the crawl.
2. PACING: Too many Christmas Ales at the first stop is a critical strategic mistake. This is known as "Sprinting Too Early" which is not advisable in this, a distance event. Can have negative repercussions later.
3. MANNERS: Be patient with bar staff. Remember, 700 or so people will be descending upon a poor crew. They will be working as fast as they can. Also, it is considered very good manners to tip well everywhere you go. This creates good "beerma".
4. CASH: Bring cash! This pleases the bar staff and the people standing behind you. Cash is fast. Credit cards are slow. They cannot run tabs for 700 people.
5. BUDDY SYSTEM: Make sure that you are always in contact with a couple of people you know. One of you is bound to notice that the pack is starting to move on to the next stop. This prevents the disoriented feeling of looking around an empty bar and realizing that the only three people still in there are guzzling some inferior malted beverage and may be related to the missing link.
6. MAKE NEW FRIENDS: As everyone on this crawl will be intelligent and good looking, this is an excellent place to meet new people. Also, you will note that some people become better looking as the crawl wears on. If this occurs, be sure to consult your Buddy System partner.
7. DESIGNATED DRIVER: Yes, we encourage this strongly. You never know when you might decide to run for president. And even the designated drivers on the crawl qualify for the prize. While pregnant wives are perfect for this role, it is known to be poor judgment for a husband to claim that this is the best part of her being pregnant. See "Mood Swings."
8. ENJOY ST. ARNOLD'S BEERS: It is in poor taste to be seen quaffing anything else. Ever. See "Curse of Saint Arnold."

This is the North Village Pub Crawl. There will also be a South Village Pub Crawl on December 7, so mark your calendars for that one as well.

North Rice Village will be Han's Bier Haus, Kelvin Arms, Volcano and that dive bar (I can't remember the name) on Kirby.

Perhaps we'll see a huge unattended pizza again.

Best bars and a good beer.

My liver is still in a toilet at the Turtle Club. The Brothers will all be here this weekend but we will be spending our time Friday-Sunday kicking naked women into our tents.

Start at Kelvin Arms. See everyone there at 6pm, we'll move on to Big Easy by 7 for the quick "stamp and go", on to Han's to hang for a bit, then finish up at Volcano. Sound good?

Forecast says scattered t-storms, must be "lake-effect" rain because there's barely a cloud in the sky over the entire south central United States (looking at the radar).
