The 12 Pubs Of Xmas - Jozi '18
Jozi's most OUTRAGEOUS Xmas Pub crawl is back for it's second year in 2018!
What is the 12 Pubs of Xmas? Well, it is a pub crawl that originates in Ireland where people don the most outrageous Christmas outfits (accessories), trek between a total of 12, yes 12 different pubs in the area (In this case the 1 Fox Precinct), buying AND drinking a beverage in each.
To make matters worse there are strict, complicated and unnecessary rules that you must abide by upon visiting each pub, which believe it or not, your drunk friends will still find a way to enforce.
1: Must drink with the hand you don't use (Buffalo) 2: The Accent Pub 3: The Silent Pub, no phones. (Warm whiskey shot penalty) 4: The 'Partner' (Drink must be fed to you by partner) 5: Take off a shoe and wear it as a glove 6: HYDRATE (H20) 7: Stand on one leg while drinking 8: Speak in song lyrics/movie quotes, or sing everything you want to say 9: Crawl Pub (Crawl to the bar and order) 10: Jingle Shots Pub (Xmas Carols loud & proud) 11: Drink your relationship status. Green = Single, Red = Taken, Blue = it's complicated 12: Selfie with a stranger
Each team needs to allocate a WHISTLE BLOWER (Whistle needed) - Your blower will lead your group and make sure you are on track to finishing the course. 30mins per pub is a good estimate, but feel free to take your time unless your Whistle Blower is trigger happy!
