Bar Wars is a zany charity event that happens each summer and features a lot of familiar faces. The event tests the bartending and waitressing skills of participants who happen to work at a variety of our favorite eating and drinking establishments both here on island and over on St. Thomas. Each team has to work together to create, serve and drink beverages, all while completing a funky obstacle course. Sounds like fun, right? Well it gets even better.
The course doesn’t just occur on land; it also extends out into Cruz Bay. In the past, teams have had to do some funny stuff like hula hoop, swim, kick and more, all without spilling a drink. The team with the best time and the least amount of penalties wins.
The best part of the competition is that all of the proceeds from the event – it costs $100 per team to enter – will be donated to the Family Resource Center, which helps victims of crime in St. John, St. Thomas and Water Island.
Drink is the Bar Wars’ reigning champion. Let’s see if they can do it again this year…
Spectators are encouraged to attend. We certainly will be there, and we hope you all will be too. So again, if you are lucky enough to be on the island this weekend, stop by The Beach Bar on Sunday and cheer on your favorite team. The event starts at 12:30 p.m.
