ChiKegOlympics is proud to be a Passionately Pink® event. Every cent raised will be donated to the Chicagoland area branch of Susan G. Komen®, the largest and most effective organization for breast cancer research, advocacy and awareness in the country!
Up to 8 teams of 5-10 players will compete in 7 games to be crowned champions of the 2014 Winter ChiKegOlympics!
The event will be held at Merkle's Bar & Grill on March 2, 2014. We'll be getting things started up at noon and your wristband deals last through 6PM but don't worry, there will be a break between the qualifying round-robbin games and the final four playoffs.
Your entry fee of $20 per player and includes an official ChiKegOlympics shirt, an appetizer of your choice and an exclusive player wristband entitling you to $10 pitchers of select local craft beers.
Teams must have a minimum of 5 players with a maximum of 10. Not every player will take part in every game, but each player MUST compete in at least one game or the team will face disqualification.
Don't have a full team? No problem! Sign up your partial team, or just yourself, and we'll pair you up with some strangers who are sure to be your new best friends by the time our champions are crowned.
In accordance with Illinois Happy Hour Law, all traditional "drinking games" will have the rules adjusted so that players can, if they so choose, play the entire event with no compulsory drinking, so be sure to pace yourselves as this will be a full day of fun.
Players and spectators will also have the opportunity to buy raffle tickets to win fabulous prizes sponsored by local bars, restaurants and brewers. Every cent raised will go to support breast cancer research so be sure to bring your cheering section to sample from Merkle's impressive 160 bottle deep list of North American beers and take part in our raffle featuring gift certificates and merchandise donated by great businesses, bars and breweries from around Chicago.
To register, simply purchase your tickets here on eventbrite, email ChiKegOlympics@gmail.com or stop on in to Merkle's at 3516 North Clark Street and register in person. We want to make sure your group doesn't get split up so if your team members are registering through different methods just shoot us an email with your team name and the names of your team members. If you purchase here through eventbrite, we'll follow up with an email to get your team name anyways, so don't stress.
Obviously, you must be 21 years or older and bring proper identification to attend. This is a bar, after all. No refunds will be given to people who fail to bring proper identification to the event.
