Join other poker-faced folks at Saturday's Poker Crawl in St. Petersburg.

On Saturday, hop from one St. Petersburg EDGE District business to another while collecting cards during the district's first Poker Crawl.

Lasting from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., the Poker Crawl is based off popular poker runs, where players retrieve a card at participating checkpoints and aim to craft the best poker hand.

Participants, who must be at least 18 years old, need to collect five cards to make a hand. However, they may visit as many businesses as desired to increase their chances of building a better hand.

Players may not submit more than one entry, and are allowed one card per business.

Along with a poker card, participants will get a special sale or offer, such as two-for-one drinks, from places they stop by if a $5 Fun Card is purchased from Creative Clay at check-in. An entry form, instructions on how to play and a map will also be distributed at check-in. Fun Card sales will benefit the district's Main Street Program.

Children are able to get in on the festivities, too. From noon to 3, Creative Clay will host kid-friendly activities like making playing cards (for keeps or trades) and assembling a collaborative house of cards.

Green Bench Brewing Co. will announce the Poker Crawl winners at 8, so participants must submit their hands to the brewery before 7:30. Players don't need to make a purchase or be present to win.
