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!

Cupid’s Crawl: Posing with the bartender

To tell you the truth, I was more than a little surprised.

I went up to the bar like normal and ordered two beers – one for my friend and one for me – when the bartender asked me to come behind the bar.

He wanted to take a picture of me in costume.

I slid through the crowd and behind the bar.

The bartender handed his phone to a patron, laid his head on my…. ahem… breasts, and proceeded to wait for the picture to be taken.

Here’s a photo of us getting our photo taken.  Thank you Brad for the picture!
