SAN FRANCISCO, March 31 (UPI) -- Organizers of a pub crawl in San Francisco said 200 people turned up to drink booze and model their Snuggies, popular fleece blankets with sleeves.

Keith Charles F., 25 (he said he preferred to not give his last name to the newspaper), and Patricia Prislin, 24, said they met on social networking Web site Yelp and started talking about a recent Snuggie pub crawl in Chicago and the possibility of starting a Snuggie event closer to home, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday.


The pair said they didn't just ask people to show up in their Snuggies, they offered costume competitions for best male, best female, best group, best couple and sluttiest Snuggie.

"We kept moving the date back because people were not going to get their Snuggies in time," Keith Charles said to the newspaper before the event. "Don't tell anyone but I got a red one off of eBay."

The organizers told the Chronicle so many people showed up to the pub crawl Friday that Snuggie-clad groups were splitting into several different bars ahead of the 11 p.m. costume judging at McTeague's Saloon.
