Some things you have to see to believe, and the 25th annual Battle of the Bars at Schooner Wharf Bar is one of those events.
This year’s showdown begins at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5, when teams of seven from local bars and restaurants compete in a hilarious relay race that tests their mixing, serving and drinking skills. And in true Key West style, the judges can be bribed and “bought” with donations that benefit local charities. Teams can buy their way into the next round to advance in the standings.
The fastest team takes home the trophy and bragging rights, but prizes and awards are also given for the most generous teams with the Deepest Pockets and for the Most Outrageous Team Costume.
Battle of the Bars quickly becomes a spectator sport, as soon as the first team tests their skills on the obstacle course. The enthusiastic crowd immediately gets involved in the antics, cheers for their favorites and opens their wallets to help groups that help others. So come choose your team and support local charities.
