They've been having one in Beckemeyer IL for 8 years orso now. Like most small Midwestern villages, there are more taverns than churches. It works like a regular poker run. You get a card at sign up, then drive around a few blocks to one tavern and get another card, then drive around a few more blocks to the next stop,etc. Considering there are 3 taverns basically door to door, there is a lot of repeat routes! It is a fun time, and is really just a extended parade. Lots of folks tow trailers with people and coolers!

Yep, it's great for small Towns, especially if there's a walking trail around. They even made an obstical course in a ball field.....i wish there were more around, but i may suggest this at other little Towns...
