Last Call Pub Crawl's Halloween Event in the Grove (Photos)

You would have thought his past Saturday was October 31 with all the costumed revelers in Coconut Grove as part of the Last Call Pub Crawl's Halloween Crawl.

The concept was simple: "Crawlers" hit a series of bars, usually four or five, all within walking distance of each other. One weekend it may be the Grove, one weekend South Beach, one weekend the Gables... you get the idea.

You pay a fee to Last Call, which organizes a free shot and happy hour drink specials (usually 2-4-1) at each bar. The result was a no-brainer - good ole drunken carousing Greek style (fraternity, not Socrates). Organizers, Ricky Carral and Diego Insausti, did an admirable job of organizing the event and herding the crawlers from bar to bar. The guys from Last Call invited us to tag along and as dedicated journalists, we could not decline.

Last Call schedules crawls pretty much every single weekend of the year. The Halloween Crawl started off at Calamari, then staggered to Greenstreet Café, stumbled to Mr. Frog's, and crawled to Mr. Moe's, where those of us still standing continued to down drink special after drink special and toss back the last free shot.

The fact is that you can gather a group of friends and do your own version of a pub crawl, but that somewhat defeats the purpose of going out for drinks. Most of us stick to our own herd when we engage in non-organized drinking.
