Poker Pub Crawl

April 27, 2019

Tickets are $20

Where to go

3-4 pm check in at Bandito Barney’s
Start crawling at 4 pm
We will give you a map to follow

9:30 pm after-party at Bandito’s with raffles and prizes
10 pm poker and raffle winners announced—all benefitting our charitable efforts


The winner will go home with a cash prize of $500. The rest is going to charity.

Poker rules

Each drink and meal you order will earn you a ticket that you’ll exchange at the end for a poker card. When you get back to Bandito’s, we’ll give you a card for each drink ticket and reveal your poker hand. You can earn one card from each bar you visited. If there is a tie, a winner will be picked by another card game. Please do not try to break the rules—cheating will keep you from winning prizes and will bring shame to your family name.

How it works

We have an epic game planned this year that should be a blast, and very simple.

  1. Meet at Bandito’s at 3:30 pm
  2. Crawl to participating bars and buy drinks to get tickets (you can use one from each bar)
  3. Meet at Banditos at 9:30 pm and trade your tickets for cards to make a poker hand. If you get more than 5 cards, you can discard ones you don’t want—but only one from each bar (7 max).

Proceeds from our event will help fund our charity efforts—including the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry and Boys & Girl’s Club’s Operation Warm—which gives winter coats to Carpentersville families in need. We have many charities we support learn more at Or to dig deeper, read through our Rotary primer and consider joining us!
