Alligators are irritable and deadly creatures, but can be lulled into submission under the influence of free T-shirts, lively dancing, and surprisingly delicious raffle tickets. Soothe the savage beast with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a "Pubs of Gainesville" print and one ticket, including a T-shirt and 10 tokens, to Gator Stompin' 2011 on Thursday, April 28 (a $65 total value).

A Gainesville rite of passage for more than a quarter century, Gator Stompin' marks the arrival of spring as students and locals of Gator Nation come together for a day of ingesting, imbibing, and alligator impressions. Your stylish Gator Stompin' T-shirt grants access to the 50 participating bars, restaurants, and nightclubs from midtown to downtown. Your 10 precious tokens can be exchanged for snacks, drinks, raffle tickets, financial advice, and more. Additional tokens may be won or purchased throughout the event. Faceplant into handfuls of pizza and wings from local eateries, or take in the melodious melee of live musical acts such as Tom Sartori as you crowd surf through a sea of orange and blue. Gator stompers can waltz cover-free into the majority of G-ville's midtown and downtown clubs, and compete for raffles and prizes including a cruise for two to the Bahamas or pigskin-flavored pacifiers.

This Groupon includes a "Pubs of Gainesville" print, which can be hung proudly in a dorm room or peppered with darts to decide whether the night's activities involve imbibing at Gator City, the University Club, or the tree just outside their doorsteps.

Pledge 5 Foundation and Thrift 5

As a nonprofit organization, the Pledge 5 Foundation conducts food, clothing, and public-service pledge drives for its numerous charity partners. In conjunction with each of these charity drives, it hosts community-centered promotional events—pub crawls, pet adoptions, and tailgating parties—that aim to inspire people to give back to their community. Pledge 5's staff, interns, student association, and service chamber all work to create positive change throughout the Gainesville community by stimulating local commerce and planting popsicle gardens. Pledge 5 is dedicated to increasing the number of volunteers in the community and encouraging the community's public service participation.

The Pledge 5 Foundation, in addition to working with charitable partners to inspire others to give back to their communities, also hosts a bargain shop known as Thrift 5, providing gently used and brand new goods to the denizens of Gainesville. The store stocks everything from brand name clothing to home decor and many other products. Patrons may also make tax-deductible donations to the store and volunteer at the shop. Thrift 5 also features local artist showcases.
