Gobble Wobble Pub Crawl Invades Fort Lauderdale This Saturday

Now that Halloween is behind us, it's time for our thoughts to turn to turkeys, hot apple pie, and drinking for a cause at the second-annual Gobble Wobble Pub Crawl.

The crawl starts this Saturday, November 9 at 4 p.m. and visits six different Fort Lauderdale bars, with each location offering up a different drink (unlike some other crawls that only give you Miller Light in a plastic cup).

Admission to the crawl is only $25 in advance, $35 at the door and all proceeds benefit the Leadership Broward Foundation and iTRACE Foundation, Inc. Last year, the crawl raised over $2,500.

There's also a raffle with prizes like gift cards to Mai Kai, air tickets on Spirit, and a two-night staycation at the W Fort Lauderdale. Raffle tickets are $5 for one, $10 for three, and $20 for seven chances.

You can register online until Friday evening, November 8 or at the first two crawl stops until 7 p.m. -- but hurry, because the Gobble Wobble is limited to 200 happy pilgrims all getting their drink on.

P.S. - Dressing like a pilgrim or a roast turkey dinner is not mandatory but would be kind of awesome!

The pub schedule, along with what drinks they're serving is:

4 - 5:30 p.m. American Social (mixed drink or beer)

5:30 - 7 p.m. Wild Sea Oyster Bar & Grille (oyster shooter)

7 - 8 p.m. The Dubliner (lemon drop shooter)

8 - 9 p.m. Lucky's Tavern (draft beer or well drink)

9 - 10 p.m. Capones (Sex on the Beach shot)

10 p.m. - ??? America's Backyard (mixed drink or beer)

After six cocktails, you might be singing this:
