Bar crawl for the young at heart

If warm, comfy and slightly tipsy is the way you want to spend your Saturday but you still want to leave the house, The Great Onesie Bar Crawl may be the event for you. From 3-9 p.m., some of the most casually dressed drinkers in town will party their way up and down Fremont Street. A $30 ticket gets you free admission and drink specials at 11 downtown bars, including Gold Spike, Atomic Liquors, Inspire, Corduroy, The Nerd and bars in the D Las Vegas, Golden Nugget and Golden Gate. As for the dress code, organizers offer this advice: “You can wear pajamas. You can wear a costume. You can pretty much do whatever you want — but it better be a onesie!” Check in at Golden Nugget’s Troy Liquor Bar and purchase tickets in advance at greatonesie.com.
