Edwards, get ready to crawl

Each fall the Edwards Pub Crawl faithful reunite. The annual tradition has been taking place at Edwards restaurants and bars for eight years now. Host Bob Angel might not remember everyone’s names, but you can bet he knows your face. And he’s hoping you’ll join him again beginning tonight at 6 p.m. at Gore Range Brewery. “We have tons of loyal followers that come out every year and look forward to it,” Angel said. “Everyone enjoys getting out on a Thursday night, meeting with their friends and having a good time. Plus this is one of the few prize events that’s extremely fair to everyone who shows up.”There are six stops on the Pub Crawl – Main St. Grill, Woody’s Bar & Grill, Kirby Cosmos, Marko’s Pizzeria, Gore Range Brewery and Zino Ristorante. The Edwards Pub Crawl takes place from 6 p.m. to midnight each Thursday through Dec. 16, except for Thanksgiving. Each week the restaurants rotate so that each bar has a chance to be a “prize stop.” The schedule will be printed in the Vail Daily each week.

There are two chances for attendees to win prizes – halfway through the night, at the third stop on the crawl, Angel hands out prizes, and again at the final stop of the night. “We do a prizes halfway through the night so that if its a ‘school night’ for you, you don’t have to stay for the whole event and still have an opportunity to win prizes,” Angel said. The event is organized pretty simply, as most pub crawls are.”You come to each bar, and you pick up a ticket that has a number on it,” Angel said. “The more restaurants you go to, the more opportunity to win prizes you have.”Angel is excited about the prizes this year, which include t-shirts, sweatshirts, CD’s, Vail Daily posters, glooves, goggles, Blue Tooth head sets, free wax and ski rentals from Christy Sports and more. There will also be tickets to Nuggets, Broncos and Avalanche games given away at each Pub Crawl, Angel said. “They’re great seats in the Budweiser box,” Angel said. Angel estimates he gives away upwards of 30 prizes a night, making your change of taking home something very likely. Along with special prices on Bud and Bud Light beers, participating restaurants will offer other food and drink specials.
