Guide to a great pub crawl

After completing my first (extremely) successful pub crawl on the weekend I pretty much feel like I am well versed enough in the subject to offer some clever tips to make for a great night you may not remember.

Make T-Shirts
T-shirts legitimize everything. And I do mean EVERYTHING. Mark it up with a sweet logo or symbol just to let people know you're there and you mean business.

Find a clever name
You need a name that will get funnier the more bars you get to. Anything inappropriate is probably good. This should be displayed proudly on your shirts.

Plan Ahead
Make a game plan before you head out. Make a list of all the locations you intend to hit. Establish an order based on location. Also keep in mind that certain establishments (i.e. casino's) will be less likely to let you in, the more you have had to drink. Hit those places early, so you don't miss out on anything.

Make a Budget
Pub crawls are expensive. Planning out how much you want to spend ahead of time and not bringing a bank card with you will ensure you won't spend more than you planned to.

Have Sexy Friends
Good looking people get free drinks. Latch onto them, they will be your ticket to free drink after free drink. Girls will probably have an easier time of this than guys. Don't feel bad about leeching. Your friends will probably do the same.

Keep a Tally
Keep track of your intake. It's kind of a bragging right the next day when you find out you out drank your friend.

Be Safe
Yeah, it needs to be said. Stick together, the last thing you need is to track down your friend who can barely walk. Make sure you've got a phone just in case you run into any trouble.
