The EDGE District Poker Crawl – Great Fun, Great Deals, Great Cause!
St. Petersburg, FL, August 18, 2014: The EDGE District will be holding its first “EDGE District Poker Crawl” on Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 11am to 8pm in the EDGE District, downtown St. Petersburg.
The premise of the Poker Crawl is based on popular “Poker Runs” in which participants on motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, boats, snowmobiles, horses, or other means of transportation visit five to seven checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object of the Poker Run is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. The EDGE District has modified the “Run” to a “Crawl” where participants walk to participating businesses, get a poker card and a special deal. Participants need only 5 cards to make a hand but can go to as many businesses as possible to get more cards to have a higher chance of making a better hand.
The day will be filled with family fun and special deals and offers from participating businesses. From 12pm to 3pm children of all ages can come to Creative Clay at 1124 Central Avenue to create their own playing cards to keep or trade and build a house of cards!
Poker Hands are dropped off at the Green Bench Brewing Co. before 7:30pm and the winners will be announced at 8pm. Players do not have to be present to win or make a purchase to play.
A $5 Fun Card will be offered for sale to benefit the EDGE Business District Association Main Street Program. The Fun Card will give participants access to special sales and deals with participating businesses such as 2 for 1 drinks, etc.
Lea Ann Barlas, Executive Director/Main Street Program Manager commented, “we hope to have the Poker Crawl as a yearly event and encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the fun!”
