There is another VIP pub crawl in London, which is an annual celebration; this is the Waitangi Day Pub Crawl which is conducted around the ‘Circle Line’ on the London Underground region. Here we should remember the famous student bar crawl also, which is popularly known as ‘The Seven Legged’; this particular bar crawl is conducted every year in Nottingham, England. This VIP Pub Crawl is hosted by the ‘the fundraising and events organization of University of Nottingham’ and the approximate time of event is every autumn period. It is recorded that in the year of 2009, almost 6750 students took part in this exciting event!
In 2010 a famous VIP Pub Crawl was organized in connection with the Christmas Day celebrations and the event was hosted by the well-known twelve bars in Chicago. This became the biggest Christmas Pub Crawl, with an active participation of around 10,000 people. One of the biggest organized pub crawls is conducted in Buenos Aires every year and the celebrations stretches around 7 days and includes 4 separate, but nearby regions. There are some more famous VIP Pub Crawls like the ‘Gainesville, Florida pub crawl’, ‘Wisconsin pub crawl’, ‘Wolski’s Pub crawl’, ‘The buffalo bar crawl in Buffalo, New York’, ‘The StayClassy pub crawl’ and ‘The Mad Hatter Pub Crawl’.
To attract the participant’s, as well as the public attention often various kinds of themes are applied while conducting pub crawls. Some of the notable variations are ‘The Monopoly Board Pub Crawl’ and ‘The Santa Claus Theme’. There is no general rule that pub crawl should be well organized; in some cases like the ‘Louisville, Kentucky’ this can be undertaken by friends as and when they like or desire.
Pub crawling, which is termed in very different terms like bar hopping, bar crawl or sometimes as bar travel, is in reality was conceived as a social get-together which is meant especially for foreign people, who happen to live in unfamiliar areas; by this way, they can very effectively get rid of their monotonous rhythm of life and can get favorably familiarized, with the very many bars and clubs which are situated in the place where they dwell. The word ‘crawling’ is put just after the word ‘pub’ for giving a little more emphasis to the entire process; no crawling is taking place anywhere! The procedures of this practice are really not at all structured in a systematic way, in most of the cases. Originally, it was like a group of people who start their drinking process from one bar and then all of a sudden shifts to another and then again to another, until the nearby bars and clubs are all visited. This might have started just as a past time among a group of friends and then slowly might have captured the imagination of the participants and they might have carried on with the process later on. However in most of the popular VIP Pub crawling, the whole practice is well organized at the present time and the original ‘past time like event’ has shaped itself into a form of a well thought-out and controlled festival like action.
Pub crawling, even though started as early as in the 19th century, has gained high social momentum during these modern days. Of late in many parts of the world, mostly in European countries ‘pub crawling’ has developed itself into a social gathering occasion. This, in fact, attracts plenty of participants and the VIP pub crawl of Maryborough – Queensland – Australia, which is usually conducted with all seriousness and significance, is generally considered as the greatest vip pub crawl in the entire world. The show conducted on June 14th 2009 had attracted a grand number of participants – a total number of 4718 participants participated in that event! Another notable matter of this particular VIP pub crawl, which was actually started in the year of 2005, is that the city has broken its record in each of the subsequent years and now holds the notable distinction as the greatest pub in the entire globe! However this record was overthrown by the World Record Pub Crawl 2010; at this function even though the organizers expected a participation much more than the Queensland VIP Pub Crawl and calculated a rough number of around 5000 people, the actual participation was very much more than that! The event which was routed through 5 different ways and which was conducted on Saturday October 09, 2010 between 10am to 7.30pm was attended by more than 6000 people! Indeed a VIP Pub Crawl!
