A pub crawl is a gathering of people that move from bar to bar to have a drink, going through a number of establishments in one night. The name “pub crawl” originated in England where this activity takes place frequently.  The “crawl” part refers to the fact that by the end of the night it’s common for some of the participants to leave the bar crawling as a result of the amount of alcohol consumed in one night.

If you are on any kind of medication be sure to inform yourself if you can mix the medication with alcohol.

Walk or use public transportation to get to the event and to come back home. Under no circumstances should you drive if you have been consuming alcohol during the night as such would represent a great danger to you and others.
