It’s impossible to tell how many people will participate in this years crawl. Last year everyone seemed to wait until the very last second to order and we went from 400 people the week before to 2000 when shirt orders ended. So this years crawl seems to be following that same pattern. If you want to participate in the largest pub crawl in Oshkosh then order your shirts soon.
- SHIRT PRICE JUMPS TO $15 = October 1st
- LAST DAY TO ORDER SHIRTS = October 5th at 11:00pm
So last year we posted tips on what to match your pub crawl shirt with (you can read it HERE). Some of you actually took this advice (you’re insane, girls in prom dresses). This year we decided to make things easier by giving the crawl shirt a 90′s theme. Basically anything 90′s would be awesome, but below are some direct tips.
Acid Washed Jeans: A jean style that will never die thanks to most Wal-Mart shoppers. Get your hands on some of these, match them with a bandana, and you are basically Bret Michaels. Just don’t have a Transient Ischemic Attack… too soon?
Zubaz: If you were cool enough to own a pair of these back in the day hopefully you kept them. Big, baggy, comfortable, and made from flamboyant zebras. You can actually still order them on Amazon HERE.
Belly Shirt: Mostly a girl fashion, but fat guys can pull it off too. Just cut the bottom off your crawl shirt. For some reason belly buttons were real hot in the 90′s.
Fanny Pack: Probably the most convenient accessory to add to your crawl uniform, but it does look like your belt is digesting something.
Backwards pants: Kris Kross will make you, Drunk, Drunk!
If you need any more ideas just watch some episodes of the Fresh Prince or grab a VHS copy of Encino Man.
Step 1: Ask your friends to be on your team. If they’re normal they’ll say, “HELLS YES!” and then you just ask them what size shirt they need and collect $10.50 from them. If they say, “Well, I don’t know” screw them they can order their own shirt later if they want.
Step 2: Figure out what shirt color and ink color combination you want. Do you want to go classy with a navy blue shirt and white ink or do you want to go obnoxious with a pink shirt and yellow ink? There are 16 shirt colors with 4 ink colors to combine, so this is probably the most difficult step.
Step 4: Pick up your shirts the week of the crawl and print out the scavenger hunt sheet off this site.
Step 5: Set up a meeting place for your team on October 9th and start the crawl at 5:00pm.
Almost all the bars drink specials have been posted to the DRINK SPECIALS section under BARS. A lot of bars will have $5 domestic pitchers and either a mixer special, spot special, or both. (All specials are subject to change.)
It also looks like a the new bar that is opening where the old Joe’s Sample House was will be open in time for the Pub Crawl and they will be joining the fun as well.
