Now in its sixth year, the Post Thanksgiving Pub Crawl offers bar shenanigans during a holiday mostly consumed by family dinners, football games, and food comas. So if you're looking to do a little celebrating with friends this weekend, this is a pretty good option. The crawl takes place in downtown and Lowertown St. Paul, and typically involves around 90 to 100 people. The itinerary is relatively loose, with people switching up locations around the hour (though you can move at your own pace, too). Participating spots include the Gopher Bar, Barrio, Burger Moe's, and Mancini's Char House. Participants will be given a wristband, which will allow them to receive discounts and other drink specials. Half of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Saint Patrick's Association of St. Paul (a group that also throws an epic yearly party), and Blair's Tree of Hope, which provides services and life necessities for families with hospitalized children. 21+. More info at www.ptpcmn.com. $10-$20. 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. You can pick up your wristbands from 4 to 10 p.m.
