To compete in the Olympic Games, which wrap up on Sunday night, one needs to possess significant amounts of strength, athletic prowess, and determination in order to quest for the gold. To participate in the Dos Gringos Bar Olympics this weekend, however, all you'll need is a keen eye, good aim, the ability to quickly chug large amounts of liquid, and maybe a little bit of luck.
On Sunday afternoon, the Chandler location of the local Mexican beach bar chain will offer day drinkers, college kids, and barstool jockeys the opportunity to experience both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, as well as the chance to take home cash, prizes, and even a medal or two. Costumed teams of five players each will compete in eight different bar games, including such frat boy favorites as beer pong and quarters, as well as cornhole and darts.
Jackalope Ranch spoke with Hannah Sanchez, one of the managers at the Dos Gringos location, and Max Graham, one of the event's organizers, for a rundown of each of the games involved and what skills are necessary to secure victory.
