Stay warm — with hands free to hoist a beer!

Andy Katzman slips into his Snuggie at a friend's apartment on a bitterly cold January night. (Sun-Times file)

Life is so much rosier now that I can stay warm and blog at the same time, thanks to the convenient sleeves on my Snuggie. If you, too, have joined the Snuggie cult (Or Slanket, or whichever brand of blankets with sleeves you choose), you'll soon find another glorious use for the hands-free function of the invention — hoisting a few, this spring during the Snuggie Pub Crawl along Lincoln Avenue.

Originally scheduled for March 21, news today via NBC Chicago has the event moved to April 18. (Er, will we still need the snuggliness of a Snuggie in April?) More than 2,300 people have signed up already. And, NBC adds, "Don't forget, it's BYOS – Bring Your Own Snuggie. You can purchase Snuggies at local retailers like Walgreens, or order them online by this Saturday, Feb. 28 to ensure delivery before the pub crawl. And a nice side note, the Snuggie Pub Crawl team is donating proceeds from the event to the AC-Orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania."
