The Snuggie, the silly television-advertised wearable blanket, has become the hottest item of the year.
It's on back order, and folks are clamoring for this unique outer garment that some call a blanket with sleeves.
Now it turns out, Snuggies aren't just for TV watchers or sports spectators.
Chicago is sponsoring a Snuggie pub crawl on April 18. New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle are also planning similar events. All these coastal cities can get a bit chilly, so the Snuggie would seem to be the perfect evening wear.
But why limit it to bar hopping? A Snuggie would be great on the beach too. It practically seems designed for a cruise ship deck, or even sleeping in an airport if you've missed the last flight of the night.
Perhaps the Snuggie is really the ultimate travel accessory.
