There are already 13 incredible bars & restaurants scheduled as stops for the pub crawl this year. Your $10 wristband gets you on the bus that will take you to all of them, so a gift card to any (or all) of those places would be a wonderful thing to give to someone as a gift. If you guys simply can't wait until February, you could even use the gift cards early to stake out where your favorite stops will be.
If you go ahead and book a room for them, they'll simply have to come! You can find a list of the many places to stay for the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl on our website. Some are on the bus route and you can be picked up and dropped off right at their door, and there are more that are located off-route but will be shuttling pub crawlers to and from the event. Be sure to ask about special Mardis Gras Pub Crawl rates when you call to make the reservation.
Not only a needed item for the pub crawl, but also a very colorful and fun gift to give! Gather a bunch of cool beads (or simply re-gift that pile you have left over from last year) and put them into a box or gift bag. It will make for one heavy present that they'll be anxious to dig into.
Mardi Gras masks are a tradition, plus it's a lot easier to have some uninhibited fun when you're wearing one! You'll want to find something unique and impressive that will really stand out in a crowd. Keep comfort in mind too though. They'll want to be able to wear it for the entire event, which begins at 4:00 pm and doesn't end until the bars close. (Unless you're set to after-party, which means it could last much longer!)
Pick out some matching shirts or jackets for your entire group to wear. It's a great way to keep track of each other throughout the event, plus it's a wonderful way to draw attention and possibly get more beads from the other pub crawlers! Use funny sayings like "We like big BEADS and we cannot lie!" "Cajun Drinking Team" or "Show me the beads (and maybe I'll show you mine!)" Of course, you could also all wear last year's official Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl shirts until you get here, and then pick up the 2018 version before you go out for the night.
When your friends open these gifts over the holidays, it will immediately get them in the mood to start planning a Mardi Gras weekend at the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks. Mark Saturday, February 17, 2018, on your calendars, sign up for text alerts, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+, and share all of our updates with everyone that you know.
