day of beers, bartenders, margaritas and mayhem helps to
dramatically improve the lives of local residents and local causes –
only in Key West.
The 22nd Annual Battle of the Bars at Schooner Wharf Bar will take
place Sunday, August 2nd at noon, and local “bar squadrons” are
preparing for battle and hi-jinks.
Teams of seven race against the clock and each other in a hilarious
obstacle course that fills the street in front of Schooner Wharf Bar
and lines the pockets of two local charities.
Proceeds from this year’s 22nd anniversary Battle of the Bars will
benefit Key West Rotary Club's Children's Dental Program and Florida
Keys SPCA Animal Shelter. The money raised at Battle of the Bars will help ensure the
continuance of both their missions.
In the race, team members must mix a perfect margarita, serve it
without spilling, tap a keg, sort recyclables, and chug a beer.
Which staff will have the right stuff, and which will be
dishonorably discharged from the battle site?
The entry fee of $35.00 ($5.00 per team member) and all “bribes”
will be donated to two local charities, Key West Rotary Club's
Children's Dental Program and Florida Keys SPCA Animal Shelter. All participants will receive a free
Battle of the Bars T-Shirt (compliments of Eagle Brands/Michelob
Ultra). Sign up before July 23rd and your team's name will be
printed on the T-shirt.
Trophies and bragging rights will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
place. There will also be prizes for the Most Outrageous Team
Costume and Deepest Pockets.
Everyone’s done a terrific job in the past, and last year,
everyone’s helpfulness raised an outstanding $289,910 raised over
