walk

noun; other word formation type metaphor; analogy
refers to a party in which a group of people get together and drink at a “stop” then move onto the next “stop” that is relatively far away
 
A crawl is similar although over a shorter distance due to a person being so drunk they can’t stand and must move around on the floor, akin to a baby crawling with minimal coordination. A walk doesn’t specifically imply any degree of sobriety but one must go further given a similar amount of time so they must walk (which is faster) instead of making their way to the next stop by crawling on the ground.
Etymology : bar crawl ‘crawling between nearby bars or drinking locations’ becomes crawl via clipping, bar walk ‘walking between relatively far drinking locations’ becomes walk via clipping
