Goodwill Pub Crawl

pub crawls are pretty frequent happenings in  pacific beach area of san diego, so the need to distinguish themselves through t-shirts, mustaches, and common themes is needed.  pickle and i have been on a hand full of them, and they are always fun.  for some reason, walking with a group of friends, or soon to be friends, down by the beach, drunk, leaving one bar before it gets old or stale, only to stumble to the next new place, it's just so exciting.

last weekend, we were lucky enough to join a group for a dual birthday fiesta.  we didn't know more than a few people, but we liked the theme and like meeting new people so, we went.  the theme was "dress to embarrass."  the idea was that everyone met a bar, wearing clothes they planned to donate to goodwill, they names are pulled, and the name that you pull, is the person you will be dressing at goodwill.  at goodwill, it is a free for all-  the craziest items that anyone can find, are put on and then starts the pub crawl.

i must stop to mention, how this idea also supports goodwill, we may have left the store looking a little bit like a tornado hit it, but i bet the group spent about 300 + dollars there.   plus we donated our clothes. ....well, most of us did.   i decided to wear leggings that were jeans, or jeggings as they are commonly referred to.  when it came to drop them in the donate bin, something in me didn't want to part with the jeggings.  they made it back to the trunk of my car, and they will be worn again, probably as another joke.

anyway, here is a photo of me and pickle in the glorious outfits that were chosen for us. pickles was a women's- set and very tight on him, he looked like he was going to bust out of it, like the incredible hulk.
