Bar Crawl Scavenger Hunt Ideas

Birthdays are a special day, no matter how old you are. A fun way to celebrate is by having a bar crawl scavenger hunt. You and a group of loved ones go from bar to bar collecting or fulfilling items on a list. You and your group, as well as the strangers you come in contact with are sure to have a lot of fun celebrating your birthday in this way. Be sure to take a camera along to capture the memories of this fun-filled night. It is also important that you contact the bars you are going to visit before hand to get permission for these activities to occur.

Sign the Shirt

Purchase a t-shirt and sew a string to it that has a marker attached. The celebrant wears this shirt with a goal of acquiring a set amount of signatures that have been predetermined. Signatures must be acquired from each bar visited.

Give a Man a Makeover

Convince a total stranger to allow you to give him a makeover. The makeover includes a full face of makeup—eye shadow, mascara, blush and lipstick. He must also allow you to style his hair and restyle his clothing as you see fit. A snapshot is in order for this one.

Drink of the Night

Once you have become friendly with the bartenders, ask them to create a special drink of the night for your birthday. Of course, the drink has to be named for you. Once it is created, you have to convince five people to purchase the drink.

Put on a Show

You and your friends take center stage in this activity. Select a song from the jukebox or have the band play a specific song. You and your friends stand in front of the crowd and put on a performance to the song, complete with vocals and dance moves.

Designate a Driver

To ensure that everyone involved travels safely throughout the evening, be sure to arrange a designated driver. Ask a friend who is not going to drink to be your taxi for the evening or hire a car service to drive you around for the night. If mass transit is readily available in your area, use it as your means of travel.
