Sorry, what? Biggest? In the whole world? Not to mention those beautiful words ‘pub crawl’. Give me an ill-fitting Comic Sans t-shirt and cheap Jagerbombs and I’m the happiest girl in the world.
But The Grand Academy of Lagado, in partnership with Coopers and the Adelaide Fringe, have something a little more ambitious in mind than hitting up PJ’s, Heaven AND Hungry Jacks within three hours.
They propose not one night of debauchery, but 24. Three weeks with the potential for amber-soaked revelry? Sign me up.
Taking place between February 24 and March 18, the event’s official launch is March 2 at UniSA’s City West campus, with participants braving a whirlwind tour of some of Adelaide’s finest establishments.
Can’t make the launch? Here’s the best part: much like those brilliant childhood books (oh Goosebumps, how I loved thee), this is a choose-your-own-pubcrawl adventure – you can decide what day, which pubs and how long your pub crawl will be. You can even design your own shirts (providing you gather a group of 30+ Coopers enthusiasts).
Premade shirts entitle the wearer to discounts at almost 20 pubs across the CBD, and at only $20, are well worth the investment.
So gather together friends, workmates – hell, innocent bystanders – and visit that t-shirt place on Hindley St and get crawling!
Tickets available from UniLife. See worldsbiggestpubcrawl.com.au for more details.
