The 2-Armed Blanket, Booze, & You: It's the Snuggie Pub Crawl

"Blankets are okay, but they slip and slide, and when you need to reach for something, your hands are trapped inside," laments the TV commercial for the Snuggie--the blanket that comes with two arms. Never has "lying on the couch" been made so convenient as it has since the product's arrival on the market. And just when you thought you and your new best friend were relegated to the confines of your own home, an event slated to take place soon in Los Angeles can bring Snuggie-wearing booze-enthusiasts together, out in public.

The SnuggiePubCrawl.com Team is hosting the first-ever Snuggie Pub Crawl here in our fair city. The "Team" is not affiliated with the blanket-makers, just very fond of, it would seem, drinking while covered--but not restricted--by a blanket. And why not? If at the very least, it will make for some fun photo ops of people assembled in cult-esque robes moving from bar to bar (think SantaCon).

They haven't set the date yet, but plans are underway. You can sign up to be a part of the cuddly insanity, and as they encourage, "even though it's just a blanket with sleeves, we're sure that you'll enjoy a winter evening spent drinking with friends and the Snuggie." Winters being what they are here, and the warming effects of alcohol considered, you might want to dress light under your Snuggie. Proceeds from the event are going to help care for orphans at the AC-Orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania, which rescues orphans from the streets of Tanzania whose parents have been victims of HIV and TB. Donations will go directly to providing food, clean water, clothing and schooling for these children. (Perhaps they could use Snuggies, too?)
