Clubbing with a group of strangers can be intimidating—but World Crawl San Diego's pub-crawl guides make it fun. Up to 10 guides accompany each club crawl, and jumpstart the party by drinking and dancing alongside the participants as the group hops from venue to venue—typically five stops per night—visiting bars, mega-clubs, and ultralounges. Even in between venues, the party doesn't stop—groups sometimes travel in style aboard party busses or limos, which foster close-quarters conversation and booze-fueled renditions of "The Wheels on the Bus."
In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.
The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.
