We’ve done a lot of neat things at The Lost Ogle over the past couple of years. We’ve let everyone know about a certain anchorwoman’s pink bikini, popularized a cardboard cutout and even launched our own Oklahoma celebrity tournament. But one thing we’ve never really had is big, cool and fun event. Now that’s about to change. Check out our fancy press release:
The Lost Ogle is proud to announce it has organized Oklahoma City’s first ever Snuggie Pub Crawl. The crawl will take place on Saturday, Dec. 5, in partnership with several pubs in the Classen Circle area. The participating establishments are Edna’s, The Drunken Fry and The 51st Street Speakeasy.
The Snuggie Pub Crawl is simply a pub crawl where the participants wear Snuggie blankets. Known as “the blanket with sleeves,” the Snuggie is a sleeved, body-length blanket usually made of fleece material. Marketed primarily through infomercials, it has grown into a pop-culture phenomenon. It has even been rumored that Gary England wears one.
“We’ve wanted to hold an official Lost Ogle event for some time. We figured an event couldn’t get much more absurd and fun than a Snuggie Pub Crawl, so we decided to run with that idea,” said Patrick, founder of The Lost Ogle. “Overall, the event is simply an excuse to have a good time, and in the process, celebrate our obscure local social blog and the people who read it. We are also hoping hot chicks will attend.”
The Snuggie Pub Crawl will begin at Edna’s, 5137 Classen Circle, at 8 p.m. The crawl will then move across the street to the Drunken Fry at 9:30 p.m. At 11 p.m., the destination will be the 51st Street Speakeasy, 1114 NW 51st St. Although Snuggies are not required to participate in the crawl, they are highly encouraged. Additionally, the event is BYOS (bring your own Snuggie).
“This should be a pretty fun event. We’re going to try to have door prizes and awards for the best Snuggies. Cardboard Jim will be there. I’ll be there. Hell, even Clark Matthews may be there, and the only time he gets out is for checkers tournaments,” Patrick said.
This will be the first Snuggie Pub Crawl to take place in the Oklahoma City area. To date, more than 50 Snuggie Pub Crawls have been organized in cities across the United States. However, none of those pub crawls were attended by Cardboard Jim Traber.

Yeah, if you’ve made it this far and haven’t yet booked this night on your Outlook calendar, I’m very disappointed. Seriously, we’re throwing a damn Snuggie Pub Crawl. Think about that for a second…alcohol, Snuggies, and Cardboard Jim Traber. How can that be topped? It probably can’t.
Anyway, if you want to check out the Facebook event page and forward it to all your friends, feel free. As Clark Matthews always says, “the more the merrier.” Of course, Clark Matthews also likes licorice jellybeans, so take what he says with a grain of salt.
