PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Forget the Erin Express.

On May 3rd, Philly2Night and UpcomingEvents.com are planning to host a Guinness World Record-breaking pub crawl right here in Philadelphia.

According to the event’s website, “The Crawl” starts at noon and ends at 8 p.m. Potential record-breakers will be required to sign in and pick up a wristband and map at any of the more than 100 bars and restaurants participating in the event.

Of course, there are a few important things to note: Guinness requires that every crawler hit at least 10 locations and enjoy at least 5 oz. of a beverage in each. To help keep participants safe(r) and hydrated, water and non-alcoholic drinks count. Though transportation will not be provided, participants are free to use public transportation or walk from bar to bar. And of course, crawlers must be 21 years of age or older.

Funds raised by The Crawl will be donated to charity, although the organization of choice has yet to be announced.

The goal is to beat Kansas City’s June 2013 bar crawling record, which included nearly 5,000 participants and 10 pubs.

Oh, and wacky outfits are encouraged — think tutus, costumes and wigs.
