What's the best way to organize a happy hour at a bar?

This is probably the silliest question I've asked, but I've never done something like this. I just want to set up an informal have-a-beer at a brewpub with my classmates. I'd consider it a success if we got somewhere more than 8 people, but since I'm planning it for the same day/time as class had been it wouldn't surprise me if the number swelled up to twenty.
What's the right protocol? Do I have to contact the bar in advance with a head count? Is it better to just hang out a the bar or try to get tables? Do I need to bring name tags? Are we going to piss off the usual crowd if we overcrowd the bar?
