Last Minute Details for the Biggest Party of the Year - The Lake Pub Crawl!

IT'S LAKE PUB CRAWL TIME!!!!!! It's on this Saturday, February 16, 2019, the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks will be in full swing! Bands will be playing, busses will be running, beverages will be flowing, and beads will be flying for this year's Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl. Come rain or shine, or even a little "wintry mix," nothing's gonna stop this party! 



The Lake Pub Crawl spans over 12 miles across the lake area with 16 different stops at bars and restaurants along the way. Just to make doubly sure that you're ready for the weekend, here are the details that you'll need to know to get your party started.    



Get Your Wristbands & T-Shirts
Your ticket to all the excitement is a $10 wristband. This wristband will get you into all 16 of the participating bars and restaurants plus a ride on any of the 20+ busses offering a sober chauffeur to all pub crawlers all night long. Wristbands can be purchased before or during the event at any of the 16 stops, specific hotel/motel sponsors, and at Sunshine Daydream on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip. 



Many of the pub crawl stops are also selling event t-shirts. These make a stylish keepsake for you to wear until you get your 2020 Lake Pub Crawl t-shirt next year!  



Board the Busses
Event busses will continuously be running the pub crawl route from 4:00 pm-2:30 am. Bars have to close at 1:30 am at the Lake of the Ozarks, but our busses are running later to make sure that everyone safely gets to where they need to be at the end of the night. Put your car keys away for the evening because we've got you covered! 



Most of the busses will stop at every participating venue on the route as well as hotels that are on the pub crawl route. That means you don't even have to drive from your hotel if it's on our way. We'll pick you up and drop you off at the door! (There is a list of on-route hotels on our website.)

A few "express busses" will only be stopping at 3 designated venues during the event. These are available in case you need to get to the other side of town quickly to meet up with friends or catch a band you're excited to see.  



16 Stops & Live Music
As we've already mentioned, there are 16 stops on this year's Lake Pub Crawl route and every single one of them will feature the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks



Special Thanks
Once again, we'd like to say a special thank you to this year's sponsors. Their support allows us to bring the world's largest pub crawl to you. Be sure to check them out while you're in town. 



See You Saturday!
We've been talking about this year's 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl for months now, and most of you have been talking about it since last year! Well, it's FINALLY here. We're ready and hopefully, you are too. Have a great Lake Pub Crawl weekend!

The 2nd Half of the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl

The world's largest pub crawl covers so much ground, there are just too many stops to feature in only one blog! Last week we covered the 1st half of the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl, and this week we're featuring the next 8 of the 16 stops. Once you have your $10 wristband on Saturday, February 16, and hop onto any of the 20+ pub crawl buses, here is what you'll be heading toward.   
  

Tucker's Shuckers
Even though they're really all about the oysters, they are also known for amazing burgers, sandwiches, steaks, salads, sports (on 28 HD TVs,) live music, and the fact that they have 28 different beers on tap. You will find them at 1339 Bagnell Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozark. Featuring 2 levels of restaurant and bar, they are able to have 2 amazing musical acts going at the same time! DJ Kaizen will be upstairs and DJ Nick Niemeier will take the stage downstairs, both playing from 7 pm-1 am. 



High Noon Bar & Grill
Just up the road at 1289 Bagnell Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozark, is the High Noon Bar & Grill. They specialize in creating a large variety of incredible drinks from the bar and amazingly delicious Southwestern-style cuisine from the kitchen. As soon as we have an update about their scheduled live music, you will find it on the Lake Pub Crawl website.      



SNAFU Bar
The next stop is found at 1275 Bagnell Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozark. This is a veteran-owned, military-themed, patriotic bar where locals gather to hang out and have a good time. The name of the place comes from a military slang term. If you don't know what the acronym stands for, then you've already got a conversation starter when you join them for the pub crawl! They will have the wonderful Rob Wilson playing from 8 pm-midnight


Lucky's Bar & Grill
Lucky's is a friendly Irish pub with strong Iowa ties. (If you're a Hawkeyes fan, you'll feel right at home and if not, you'll still be welcomed with open arms!) You'll find it at 1140 Bagnell Dam Boulevard in Lake Ozark. Their homemade Apple Pie shots are so amazing that they often sell out before the night's over. For this year's Lake Pub Crawl, the amazing DJ Craig will be taking the stage. 


Casablanca Pub & Grill
Here you've really got venues in one! You'll find Casablanca upstairs and Casagrotto downstairs at 1312 Bagnell Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozark. They've got great food and fantastic bars on both levels, with an amazing pizza kitchen downstairs and live music upstairs. This year the always entertaining Steven Scott will take the stage from 7-11 pm


Vista Grande
The next stop on the pub crawl route will be Vista Grande Mexican restaurant at 4579 Osage Beach Pkwy in Osage Beach. Their motto is "So don't drink the water, drink the Lake's best margaritas!!!" In addition to incredible margaritas, they've got a fully stocked bar full of all of your favorite drinks. If you're in the mood for Mexican while you're crawling, you can grab a table in the dining room before hopping back on the bus. 



Wobbly Boots Roadhouse
This award-winning BBQ restaurant offers mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats, a fully stocked bar, tons of TVs all around the restaurant showing all of the games, and a stage that hosts some of the best live music you'll hear in the lake area. For Pub Crawl, the Boomchux will perform from 4-8 pm and DJ Vinyl Richy will finish out the night from 8-close. Their stop is located at 4717 Osage Beach Pkwy in Osage Beach. 


Chevy's Bar, Grill, & Pizzeria 
A quick trip across the bridge will bring you to Chevy's Bar & Grill at 5151 Osage Beach Pkwy in Osage Beach. They employ world-class bartenders and are home to the best pizza in the Midwest! It's a favorite local spot and they've got a great dance floor right next to the stage. In their own words, it's "Where the fun begins and never ends!" Gracing their stage this year will be Decide.  



Lake Pub Crawl wristbands will be available closer to the event date at all participating stops as well as Sunshine Daydream on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip. Some stops have already received their 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl t-shirts and have them available for purchase right now.

The 1st Half of the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl

The 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl has 16 exciting stops on a route that stretches over 12 miles across Osage Beach and Lake Ozark. You don't have to worry about the distance, though, because the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks provides safe, sober bus transportation from 4:00 pm-2:30 am on Saturday, February 16, 2019, to everyone wearing a Lake Pub Crawl wristband!  



Today we're taking a closer look at the first half of these bars and restaurants and will continue with the other side next week. This is a quick peek at what each venue has to offer and on pub crawl weekend, they'll all be turning up the excitement!   


Mexicali Blues
Here you can enjoy some of the best margaritas at the Lake of the Ozarks in a variety of flavors, both frozen and on the rocks. They also offer a full Mexican menu featuring all of your favorite dishes, plus a few local favorites. You will find them at 6605 U.S. Hwy 54 in Osage Beach. Live music at this venue will be provided by Naked Cove Entertainment from 6:00 pm-12:30 am



Wicked Willie's Sports Grill
This #WickedGood sports bar is located at 5384 Osage Beach Parkway in Osage Beach. It features seating around the bar area with lots of tables on the restaurant side too, plus an entire nightclub to party in. There are also 31 TVs and 3 projection screens to watch all the games on. Their 2 bars are fully stocked with all of your favorite drinks plus a nice variety of draft beers. You can dance the night (and day) away with DJ INNA from 4-8 pm and they will have Doc C & Taz 1 onstage from 8 pm-close



Inn at Grand Glaize
Here we have not only a pub crawl stop but also one of our on-route hotels. They are offering special rates for pub crawl weekend, and our buses will pick you up and drop you off right at their door! Located in a secluded cove just 1/4 mile west of the Grand Glaize Bridge, you will find them at 5142 Osage Beach Parkway in Osage Beach. The bar and restaurant will be rocking with the sounds of an incredible DJ from 5:00-9:00 pm after which Relentless will take the stage from 9:00 pm-close



Tirebiter's
This friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar at 4704 Jayhawk Street in Osage Beach offers friendly service, great food, refreshing drinks, and TVs that always have the game on! You'll know you're here when you feel the peanut shells crunching under your feet. (A great pub crawl snack!) We'll have their live entertainment posted on the website soon, but rest assured that it will be someone who knows how to rock the house!



Li'l Rizzo's 
Next up at 929 Premium Outlet Drive in Osage Beach is the wonderful Italian restaurant and bar that has friendly servers and bartenders that always make everyone feel welcome. During the pub crawl, that hospitality is turned up a few notches more than usual due to the excitement in the air! Here you'll find gourmet pizza and pasta, their world famous house salad, and a full bar ready to refresh your thirst. Once again this year, Contagious will perform beginning at 9:00 pm



Arris' Pizza
The next stop is located at 3924 Jr Prewitt Parkway in Osage Beach. It's named after Arris Pardalos, the man that wanted to bring his delicious homemade pizza recipe to the Midwest. This Jefferson City staple now has 4 homes in Missouri, including right here in Osage Beach, smack dab in the middle of our incredible Lake Pub Crawl. When you get off the bus at this stop, you will be entertained by the awesome music of Pure Drive


Fat Polly's Pub
At 3080 Bagnell Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozarks is another stop located inside one of our on-route hotels, so if you stay at the Lodge at Port Arrowhead, you don't even have to drive anywhere to catch your first pub crawl bus. A special rate is being offered for this event weekend. They have a great view overlooking the main channel of the Lake of the Ozarks and will be serving incredible pub crawl food and drink specials. On stage, Soulroot Band will be bringing the hits from every genre, specializing in funky grooves and screaming guitars.    



JJ Twigs Pizza & BBQ 
This is "where past meets present and family and friends meet to enjoy good times and good food!" The crew here at 1815 Bagnell Dam Blvd. in Lake Ozark always make sure you have a memorable time. Whether you're here to eat, drink, dance, or a bit of all three, you're going to have a blast! For your entertainment, the South 5 band will be rocking the house. 



Lake Pub Crawl wristbands will be available closer to the event date at all participating stops as well as Sunshine Daydream on the Bagnell Dam Strip. That $10 wristband is your ticket into all 16 venues plus the 20+ pub crawl buses.
