day of beers, bartenders, margaritas and mayhem helps to
dramatically improve the lives of local residents and local causes –
only in Key West.
The 24th Annual Battle of the Bars at Schooner Wharf Bar will take
place Sunday, August 6th 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 24th anniversary Battle of the Bars will
benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of the Keys Area, Inc and the Bahama
Village Music Program. 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 local charities, Boys and Girls Clubs of the Keys
Area, Inc and the Bahama Village Music Program. All participants will receive a free
Battle of the Bars T-Shirt (compliments of Eagle Brands/Michelob
Ultra). Sign up before July 27th 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 $319,752 raised over
