Snuggie Bar Crawl – Sleeves ‘n’ Suds


Update 1/30:

Please download, print, sign, and bring this waiver with you to Snuggie pickup this week. Our volunteers have been instructed to collect your waiver before handing over your Snuggie. Blank copies will also be available at pickup if you do not have access to a printer. If you are picking up for someone else, you must bring their signed waiver.

Snuggie pickup nights
Snuggies will not be handed out at the bars, so please make plans this week to pick yours up at the North Liberty Community Library located at 520 W Cherry St, North Liberty.

  • Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 2 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 4 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. (trolleys will leave from the library at 6:45 p.m. but will not return at the end of the night)

Volunteers will ask to see your ID, Eventbrite ticket print-out, and collect your signed waiver before handing over your Snuggie. You are welcome to pickup for a friend, just make sure to have their signed waiver and Eventbrite ticket as well.

If your plans have changed and you’ve transferred your ticket to someone else, please email with the new ticket holder’s name and email address or they will not be able to pickup their Snuggie.

How the punch card game works
At pickup, you’ll receive a punch card to take with you on the crawl. Visit each stop for a punch from one of our JCI Johnson County volunteers (they’ll be the ones in the navy colored Snuggies just inside the entrance of each bar). Get all five punches and turn your card in to the JCI volunteer who punches your last stop and you’ll be entered for your chance to be one of five winners of a $50 gift card to a participating bar. Winners will be announced on Monday, Feb. 7.

Update 1/10: Wow. Those went fast.

We expected to sell out, but not quite as fast we did. We’d love to be able to accommodate more of you, but, unfortunately, we’re at capacity — for our trolleys and Snuggies — in our first year. Thank you all for your enthusiasm!

Attendees – keep an eye out for an email from Beat the Bitter with event details.

Yes, you read that right. North Liberty is going to be crawling with snugglers wearing the as seen on TV hit of the 2000s and it’s going to be awesome. We’ve teamed up with BeerBurger, Rocky O’Brien’s, J&A Tap, Reds Alehouse and Vito’s on 965 to bring your comfy, night-out-on-the-town dream a reality!

The best part? The night is on your schedule. Three trolleys, provided by Black Diamond Limousine, will be on a continuous loop between the bars throughout the night so crawl to each stop whenever you wish but be sure to hit them all to take advantage of the drink specials, games, and your chance to win prizes.

Cheers to looking ridiculous on Feb. 4 all bundled up in sleeved blankets drinking suds with old friends, new friends and neighbors!

Your $35 pass includes:
(Tickets will increase to $45 on Jan. 10)
