Last year I told you about the Nashville Grizzlies rugby club's Red Dress Rampage. I must have written very convincingly, because I actually talked myself into running it wearing a kicky little borrowed doubleknit number that was stylistically somewhere between a a stewardess uniform and the work clothes for a member of the secretarial pool in Mad Men.

The event was a blast, with a couple hundred men and women taking over the Belmont/12South district on a Sunday afternoon running — and mostly walking — between stops for beers at local watering holes. I should probably apologize to the patrons of the 12 South Taproom who probably thought they were in for a quiet afternoon of watching college football and enjoying some pints.

None of the stops was more than a few minutes jog apart, so don't worry about your fitness level to take on this 5K. No time limits were enforced, and people arrived and left at their leisure at each establishment.

Obviously, not a serious bunch of runners. ...

This year's event will again begin at the Belcourt and visit Cha Chah, PM, 12 South Taproom and Cabana. During the first two years of the run, the Red Dress Rampage raised over $10,000 for the Grizzlies Club and The Belcourt Theatre.

Registration is $50 and available at

So shave your legs, drop your inhibitions and do a little shopping at Dress Barn for a great time! Here's the small print:

Red Dress Rampage: Oct. 22, 2011

All attendees must be 21 or older on the day of the event to participate.

Attendance is limited to consenting adults only. Kids get confused when they see men in dresses.

Don't blame us if you forget that you need an ID to drink in this state!

Start time will be NOON.

Registration includes a Yazoo beer at each watering hole.
