Unlike Boise natives Kristin Armstrong and Nick Symmonds, most of us weren't born to become Olympic athletes, but many still enjoy some good old-fashioned competition.
For those who strongly believe in drinking as a sport you now have a chance to take home the gold.
The second-annual installment of the Barmudalympics will take place Sunday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. Teams of two will compete in grueling rounds of darts, beer pong, Jenga, horseshoes, pool and bean bag toss, and enjoy a few adult beverages.
While the events resemble a unique mix of frat house drinking games and children's birthday party activities, make no mistake--this affair is only for those 21 and older. Events will take place at the Bermuda Triangle of Broadway bars--that odd university-adjacent sector of Boise, where R Bar, End Zone and Suds are all conveniently located within stumbling distance of one another.
Participating teams will receive a free pitcher of Crooked Fence Brewing Co. beer or Pabst Blue Ribbon and one free drink each. Second- and third-place winners will receive gift cards and the first-place team will receive a Pabst Blue Ribbon skateboard, along with a Crooked Fence longboard--finally, something your parents can be proud of.
Teams must be signed in at R Bar by 1 p.m., but should probably arrive early to pregame with some happy hour bloody mary's and mimosas to fight off the inevitable hangover from "training" the night before.
