Thanksgiving Pub Crawl

Any excuse for a pub crawl is good enough reason to pub crawl, right?

Well, as it turns out there are numerous Santa Cons coming up and I’m fully prepared with a buttload of Santa costumes I can wear – everything from a bare assed elf to Mrs. Claus.

What you don’t know is there there is a little known but equally awesome pub crawl called The Pilgrim’s Progressive.

Basically you dress up like a pilgrim, turkey, or other Thanksgiving themed costume and you crawl through the pubs of downtown Mountain View.

Yesterday, I pulled out all my Santa Con costumes.

Now I’ve got to pull out my pilgrim costume from last year (which I never got to wear, boo!).

Because this year I AM GOING TO BE A PILGRIM crawling down Castro Street in downtown Mountain View, imbibing questionable quantities of liquid courage as I go.

Check me out. . .

Here’s my inspiration for my costume.

And here’s what I’ve assembled for my costume:

Is  it not THE BOMB as far as pilgrim costumes go?  I’d like to thank etsy for the awesome cape and bonnet (which I did not want to sew myself).

Watch out Mountain View, the pilgrims are coming!

The Playful Pilgrim

Last year, some friends hosted a Pilgrim Bar Crawl in Downtown Mountain View which I missed out on attending.

Costumes were OPTIONAL, however being the creative people that we are, many people dressed up as turkeys and pilgrims.

One woman even MADE A SKIRT OUT OF STUFFED TURKEYS!

It was incredible.

So incredible, I’m determined to put together a costume for this year’s Thanksgiving Pub Crawl.

THIS costume was my inspiration:

Then I bought a little tiny white apron:

And a black belt with an antique silver buckle:

Should be TONS OF FUN!
