Chicken bar crawl this Saturday
Got this email from Midnight Sun reader Sturmy, and wanted to give everybody the heads up:
This is an event we started last year to completely humiliate the person who came in last place in our fantasy football league.
We place this individual in a chicken suit (beak, talons, wings) and march them into every bar in Canton (playing the chicken dance on a boom box) for an hour of drinking and chicken dancing before proceeding to O’Donnell Square to dance around the statue and then hitting up another watering hole.
Last year’s winner (loser) is a real fun guy (i.e. drunk) who at 6’4” makes a great chicken. The fact that he was down for whatever humiliation we could dish out made it even better. Last year’s chicken crawl started at 11 a.m. at Portside on a Saturday and lasted until 2 a.m. on Sunday at Lager’s.
We brought along a mega-phone (a la Jimmy Hart) to attract as much attention from passersby as possible. At one point we had about 50 folks trailing us from bar to bar.
This year’s festivities will not be as crazy as last year’s. Admittedly it was too much. That said our little crew would like to spread the word on this year’s event as much as possible.
Here is the schedule for this year's chicken crawl, as well as a video from last year's event ...
