The BUNNYCON pub crawl is back and bunnier than ever. With seven venues across Fairbanks and a party bus to boot, this Saturday will give party goers plenty of chances to whet their whistle.
BUNNYCON2014 will include a scavenger hunt, costume contest and extra incentives to visit each bar. Bars will also offer food and cocktail specials for party-goers. This year’s event features a party bus which will shuttle thirsty bunnies to other bars later in the evening.
“Events like this create a sense of community among the establishments and participants,” said Kara Nash of Event Alaska. Nash is the organizer of BUNNYCON and held the first event last year as Event Director of the Downtown Association of Fairbanks.
A big part of the event is the spectacle. Men and women – ready for a night out on the town – dress in their most fabulous bunny-inspired wear and move in warrens from pub to pub. Laughter, drinks and a good time is the name of the game. Remember: leave the kids at home for this one.
While the evening kicks off at Hoodoo Brewery on Saturday at 6PM, participants can join the festivities at any time during the night.
In addition to crawl itself, several bars will also host their own special events during the evening. These include “The Official Fairbanks Captain Morgan White Rum Release Party” at the Red Fox, the “Bunny Bash” at the Big I, the “Easter Eve Bash” at the Boatel, and a 4-20 Big Lebowski movie viewing and DJ at the Blue Loon.
The Big I will also feature a costume contest that rewards the Sexiest, Funniest and Most Creative costumes.
“I suggest you call your friends, grab some ears and a tail, and wear something festive,” Nash said. “Be ready for a night of food, drinks and fun.”
Nash added that bunnies should expect a little bit of competition at the event, but declined to go into specifics. “You’ll just have to show up to find out,” she added, mischievously.
Don your bunniest costume and hop to it! Be sure to RSVP to the Facebook event!
