GULFPORT, FLORIDA:  The seventh annual Gecko Pub Crawl was the first of three events that herald the opening of “Gecko Season” in Gulfport.  The Pub Crawl was held Saturday, August 9th, 5 to 9 pm.  

7th Annual Gecko Pub Crawl

For $20.00, Pub Crawlers were able to enjoy a beverage at six Gulfport locations, participating businesses were:

  1. Beach Haus

  2. Little Tommie’s Tiki

  3. Mangia Gourmet

  4. Neptune Grille

  5. O’Maddy’s

  6. Salty’s of Gulfport

All are located within easy walking distance in the Gulfport Waterfront Arts District. 

Crawlers started at any participating location and continued their Crawl in any order.

An After-Party was held at Salty’s from 9 to 10 pm and featured awards, drawings and live music. 

Like last year, a Poker Run game of Five Card Stud added to the evening’s festivities. 

Crawlers were dealt a free card from a Crawl Ambassador at each location when they picked up their drink token.  Up to three extra cards could also be purchased for $5.00 each at Salty’s at check in. 

The Grand Prize for best poker hand was a two-night stay at the Sirata Beach Resort on St. Pete Beach!

Raffle drawings were also held during the After Party, with various prizes, including the chance to win a pair of coveted tickets to this year’s “Roaring Geckos” Gecko Ball! 

Participants for poker and raffle awards must have been present to win.
