Pub crawl. Neat. Pot is illegal, but let's keep endorsing alcohol.....which is (directly) responsible for 450k deaths annually. Unreal level of hypocrisy here folks. Truly mind boggling.

Relax, people just want to have fun walking around being zombies. What's so wrong about that? It's not the beer that will kill you it's the burgers these joint serve.

Zombie Pub Crawl, a.k.a. "a night at any bar".

Having to buy a pricy bracelet to have the 'privilege' of waiting in a six-deep line of obnoxiously drunken college frat-spawn just to buy a beer ..... it doesn't take "brainnns" to pass on that one.

It was better back in the day when it wasn't planned.

"@bigbear815: Relax, people just want to have fun walking around being zombies. What's so wrong about that? It's not the beer that will kill you it's the burgers these joint serve". Fine, I'll relax, but then don't expect me to be coughing up any monies for the extra healthcare and law enforcement due to excessive alcohol promotion and/or abuse. Sound good sport?? Simple deciphering of my comment from the context shows you that Pub Crawl is my issue of contention, nothing about zombies. Think before you post. Oh, and please do enjoy your next keg party or happy hour, ok?

@nkallenbach: After you read this book, get back to me, please. It's on Amazon. Until we stop driving society toward the more harmful recreational drug we won't stop advocating for a safer choice. Until then, keep spewing your previously conceived biases and notions.....they are serving society well!! Marijuana is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink

Having some organization to the event has made it more accountable. Just a few years ago there was a lot of vandalism that went along with the drinking, so in that aspect, it is better.

I hope this year these idiots won't vandalize half the business in the Seven Corners, including Theatre in the Round - at which they also disrupted a theatre performance. This has got to be one of the dumbest events around.
