The event is free, but BYO Beer Mile beer and hash cash (TBA, probably $5) for Full Moon circle beer in case we decide to do circle afterwards.
Yes, we shamelessly copied most of this post from the last Beer Mile and stole the Part Duh from Skidmarks in Hockessin cause we’re too lazy to re-write or be creative. (More time for drinking beer = acceptable hash behaviour)
Why: Test your ability to chug, run, and avoid gastrointestinal pyrotechnics.
Awards will be given to the top 3 males and females. (Who knows what this will entail?!)
How: Review the official Beer Mile rules at http://www.beermile.com/.
Obviously, these rules will be modified slightly to accommodate the tow-path.
The Beer Mile is BYO beer!!!
The organizers won’t have extra if you forget. Select a beer that has at least 5% ABV and bring 4 bottles/cans with you to the event (more if you think you need to, um, practice).
NOTE: We’ll be scoping out some places to buy takeout beer nearby and post an update shortly, in case any of you half-minds forget.
Show up at 7:30 PM to "register" and have your beverage choice approved; we’ll assign you a heat. Warm up or just stand around and look stupid until it’s your turn to chug and run. And try not to vomit, please.
How to get there:
Main & Cotton Street is just a few short blocks from the Manayunk Train Station where you can take the Septa Norristown Line. Schedule here.
You can also drive, ride a bike along Kelly or MLK Drive to Main Street, take the #61 bus to Main & Cotton, or take the #9 or #27 bus to Wissahickon Transfer Center and enjoy a stroll down Main Street to Cotton.
