Wednesday (Commenter draft: Pub crawls) edition: Wha' Happened?

It's spring. At least it seemed like it yesterday. It's a time when people start thinking about doing awesome things instead of doing really lame things like "shoveling," "surviving," and "hoping delicate body parts don't permanently freeze and attach to other body parts."

You start thinking about vacations. When you're not thinking about vacations, you're thinking about outings. And when you're thinking about outings, plenty of you are thinking about pub crawls.

So on this day -- when we're attempting a rare day-night sports doubleheader involving the Twins and Timberwolves -- we start things off by asking commenters to "draft" their ideal pub crawls.

Veterans of pub crawls know that the events require a delicate mix. You don't want to rush people from place to place, but you don't want to linger too long at one spot. You need organization, but you also need to adapt and be spontaneous. You need a good route that factors in proximity, but you also don't want to exclude good stops just because they might be a little further out of the way. You want people to have a good time if they are drinking, but you don't want them to be stumbling halfway through the thing.

Agree? Disagree? Let's hear it in the comments, along with (mainly) your itinerary for the ideal pub crawl. Feel free to extend beyond the Twin Cities, though it might cause you to need to explain your answer even more.
