The Snuggie pub crawl is coming

This Friday get ready for a pub crawl with a twist: everyone must wear a Snuggie (or a Slanket or any other blanket with sleeves.)

One night Sheena Kalso went out in Fremont with her Snuggie on (pictured right) and the idea for the Snuggie Pub Crawl was born. Right now she’s estimating about 75 will be there, but with the attention it’s been getting, there could be many more Snuggie-wearing drinkers on Friday. The event has been mentioned on Seattle Metropolitan’s website, Q13, KOMO TV and KING TV. Folks are meeting at the Ballard Loft at 7 p.m. The first 50 “Snuggie Crawlers” who bring 3 or more cans of food for Northwest Harvest will get a free drink. You can RSVP here. (Thanks Katie for the email!)

You know how in movies about the future everyone wears the same thing? same color? unisex? This is how it begins….

No offense to Sheena intended, but this is pretty dumb. And it sounds a little hippie. Which makes it even more dumb.

I'm down with anything that inspires a pub crawl. And that Snuggie looks super comfy! I wish I had one – I'd totally join up.

They should end the crawl over at Bergen Park and hand out their snuggies to the residents.

Jeez people. Can you be any more uptight?

Some people want to be goofy, have some fun, socialize and even get food donated in the process.

Get on prozac, get your anger out in a kickboxing class, or get some new batteries ;) but CHILL OUT.

Hope the pub crawlers have fun. i'd rather be sitting next to you at a pub than the bitter people that sometimes post on here. (can't you just hear their snarls?)

I guess some have to find yet another reason to drink? After all, even Homer Simpson says it's the cause and cure to all problems. Maybe we can get together and form a new mayonaise club next! Maybe some of us have the same peanut butter in our cupboards? I feel a meeting coming up. Some peoples kids……….

Drinking and a blanket. A Ballard tradition since 1905. What could be better.

It sounds FUN-FUN-FUN!! I don't own a “Snuggie” but it sounds like I should! Why is this a Spring event?? Looks like warm Winter wear or do Snuggie's come in light weight material too?

I recently saw snuggies on sale at Bartells. Just a hop, skip and a jump away from The Loft.

It's people having fun. Good for them. Hasn't this past winter been craptastic enough?

Sounds fun, but in the interest of accuracy, she's not the first.

If it makes them happy, more power to them. I always thought bars should have more people dressed up in costumes. However, shouldn't this be more of a winter thing? Isn't the Jazz fest this weekend? It's not going to be so easy to bar hop with all the covers?

I hope they get the numbers that they need to fend off the inevitable derision of the other bar patrons. 30 people dressed in snuggies = kind of freakishly awesome. 7 people dressed in snuggies = know where the exits are.

Can i cut slits in the armpits of my boyfriend Weazel's snuggie, he overheats and farts. Snuggie would be like a gas bag.

Slight correction. One cover, for all the venues on the jazz walk. I can't speak to the rest.
The badge will be easy to spot draped over a snuggie…welcome all ;-)

Stupid, I hate when people think they are being funny and force feeding it on the rest of the world. You wanna have a blanket party invite them over for a bbq don't drag your stupidity out and make the population have to deal with it. And FYI it is against WA state liquor laws to give away free booze so what the loft is doing is illegal, and they should know better since the WSLCB has been raiding all over ballard ave lately.
