Awesome Gift Ideas for All of Your Lake Pub Crawl Pals

Even though all of us organizing the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks have Mardi Gras on the brain, we realize that most of you are probably thinking more about Christmas and all of the holidays surrounding it. Well, guess what, we've combined the two subjects into one blog by offering some awesome gift ideas for all of your friends that will be attending the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl on Saturday, February 16. (You may want to add a few of these to your own wish list!) 

Gift Cards
While the finished list of bars and restaurants on the Lake Pub Crawl route is still being completed, there are quite a few venues that you know participate every single year. The $10 pub crawl wristband gets you onto the buses and into the stops, but you're going to need some spending money once you get inside for food and drinks. Giving a gift card to someone's favorite Lake of the Ozarks bar or restaurant is a great present to save them some money next February, plus an easy way to mark them off of your list for the holidays!   

Hotel Reservations
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. 

Beads & Masks

Mardi Gras is a lot more fun when you get dressed up for it, and a Mardi Gras mask also gives you the anonymity to be a little more outgoing than usual! Rather than just grabbing a dollar store paper mask on your way to the pub crawl, consider gifting your buddies some really fancy masks that reflect their personality. A big wrapped box full of Mardi Gras beads is another excellent gift idea that will definitely come in handy next February! 

Matching Outfits
We see lots of groups show up every year in outfits or costumes that match, kind of setting them apart as a "team" for the evening. (Plus, it's an easy way to spot each other quickly in a big crowd!) The most outrageous attire tends to get the most beads thrown at it too. You could make shirts with funny sayings like "We like big BEADS & we cannot lie!," "Cajun Drinking Team," or "Show me the beads (& maybe I'll show you mine!)" Of course, you could also show up in last year's official Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl t-shirt and pick up the 2019 version when you get to your first stop. 

When your friends open these gifts over the holidays, it will immediately get everyone excited and in the mood to start making plans to attend the world's largest pub crawl on Saturday, February 16, 2019, at the Lake of the Ozarks!
