Snuggie Crawl

2018 Snuggie Crawl attendees: here is Your Guide to the Snuggie Crawl. Questions? Contact

Back by popular demand after a sell-out inaugural event in 2017, JCI Johnson County and Beat the Bitter have teamed up with BeerBurger, Rocky O’Brien’s, J&A Tap, Reds Alehouse, Adelitas Mexican Grill, and Tin Roost to make your comfy, night-out-on-the-town dream a reality! North Liberty is going to be crawling with 350 snugglers wearing the-as-seen-on-TV hit of the 2000s, and it’s going to be awesome.

The best part? The night is on your schedule. Four 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. 3 all bundled up in sleeved blankets drinking suds with old friends, new friends, and neighbors!

Your $39 pass includes:

  • 2018 SnuggieA Beat the Bitter Snuggie – this red Snuggie is your ticket and the only Snuggie that gets you on the trolley and access to the drink deals (last year’s blue Snuggie doesn’t count), so you’ll want to register to fully experience the bar crawl.
  • Unlimited rides on the trolley or party bus loop between 7 p.m. – 12 a.m.
  • Drink and food specials (listed below)
  • Activities at each stop (listed below)
  • $5 Uber voucher to help get you home safe.
  • Photostrips, courtesy of Oh Snap Red Carpet Photo Booth, to remember the night.
  • A punch card for your chance to be one of five winners of a $50 gift card to a participating bar.
  • $25 membership offer (usually $55) for JCI Johnson County, emailed to you after the event.
  • Entry into the Best Dressed Snuggie contest – stop by the photo booth to enter! Snuggie pickup will be the week of Jan. 22 so you’ll have time to style how you wish.
  • Water on the bus
