Annual Schooner Wharf Battle of the Bars Results

The 18th Annual Schooner Wharf Battle of the Bars raised $25,230 for local charities Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition and Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys. The overall total is now $240,778 raised by this high-spirited charity event.

Arianna Nesbitt, CEO of Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition, said, �I�ve always known that Key West was special, but yesterday confirmed that our quirky little community truly is invested in taking care of its own. Business owners, servers and barbacks stood side-by-side on a hot scorching day to ensure Keys babies in our community receive a healthy start in life. We are truly grateful to Schooner Wharf, the referees and all the teams who took time out of their day, money out of their wallets, and drank a few for the cause.�

Mercy Hiller, chairperson for Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys added, �We are honored to be a recipient of the 18th Annual Battle of the Bars. The tireless efforts of all involved � Schooner Wharf, the bars and restaurants, and the amazing team members � is sincerely appreciated by our all volunteer organization and the patients we assist throughout the Florida Keys on a daily basis.�

Thirty-seven teams from Keys bars and restaurants were pumped up to win and waged a fierce competition. Excitement was high as the 7-person teams ran the obstacle course, poured and served a margarita, recycled bottles, rolled and tapped a keg, and drank beer.

Bourbon St. Pub�s �S.O.S. Bourbon Boozers� took home the championship title, along with a trophy and bragging rights, with a final round time of 1 minute, 37 seconds. Team �Raw Bar Rowdies� from Half Shell Raw Bar captured second place, and third place went to Rick�s �Geek Squad�.

The coveted Most Outrageous Team Costume went to Azur restaurant with their "Southernmost Space Boozers"; second place went to Dante's "Demonic Aqua Team Drinking Force". Six Honorable Mentions for Costume were awarded to Sunset Tiki Bar & Grille's "Sunset Tiki Castaways", Conch Republic Seafood Company's "Rock Out With Your Conch Out", Willie T's' "Southernmost Drunks", Southernmost Beach Caf�'s "SoMo Ballers", Santiago's Bodega's "Tipsy Toros", 801 Bourbon Bar/Bobby's Monkey Bar's "801 Monkey's", Sunset Pier's "The Green Flashers", and Rick's "Geek Squad".

The Deepest Pockets award was shared between newcomer Pete's Dueling Piano Bar's team, "Who the Hell is Pete?" and Irish Kevin's, who contributed without having a team. They raised a combined total of $4,900. Irish Kevin's have been winners of Deepest Pockets for five years. Dante's was given an Honorable Mention for their second highest contribution and Danger Charters' "Danger Rangers" also received an Honorable Mention.

�Everyone was extremely generous, all in the spirit of giving to two great causes,� said Evalena Worthington, event organizer. �The energy level and excitement to win the bragging rights were amazing. All the teams as well as the spectators were extremely giving, and the creative costumes made it an even more fun and festive day.�
