Get your Snuggie (and drunk) on this weekend in public
There's no shame in curling up on the couch in yourSnuggie
and chugging a couple beers. We're totally serious. What could be better than a blanket with sleeves or a backwards bath robe?
Well it's probably killing your sex life, but at least you can make some new friends this weekend when all Snuggie fans descend on Minneapolis's Seven Corners for the first-ever Minneapolis Snuggie Pub Crawl. (Note: Apparently there was one March 13 in Minneapolis so this isn't officially the first ever. It looked small and lame just for someone's birthday, so this one will surely top it)
Frightening or amazing? We'll have to get back to you on that one. What we do know: Joe the Plumber and Tucker Carlson love them. Yikes.
If you aren't up to speed on the Snuggie phenomenon, we'll catch you up.
Details on the Snuggie Pub Crawl:
Friday April 3 6 p.m.
The route: Grumpy's Bar ($2 PBR & Happy Hour until 7 p.m.), Maxwell's ($2.50 Red Headed Sluts), Bullwinkles ($2.50 domestic taps and rails drinks), The Corner Bar ($2 domestic taps) and Preston's (two-for-one shot special & $2 domestic pints).
Creators would like to remind you: Keep in mind that to qualify for drink specials you must be wearing a Snuggie or something resembling a Snuggie, or be in a group of people wearing Snuggies.
Get more info and find fellow Snuggie lovers over at the Facebook invite. At least you can pick out the hot ones before you meet them drowning in a sweaty blanket.
The Snuggie is a TV infomercial phenomenon. Check out the original ad here:
