We all love a good pub crawl, but figuring out a way from bar to bar can be a drag. Thanks to S.C. Bar Car, a shuttle service for larger parties, they’ll shuttle you from bar to bar. Adding to the crawl, are the Olympic-styled drinking games. Teams compete in games at five bars for the grand prize, a free night on the town in a Charleston Limo — wearing their “gold” medals is encouraged. Teams are judged on how long it takes them to complete tasks at each venue, and some of the games include the typical roster of drinking games — beer pong, flip cup, cornhole, and others. Bonus points will be given for best team name and best costume. And the competition is fierce. “The top three teams are always separated by 30 seconds,” says Josh Catigano, owner of S.C. Bar Car. The Bar Car Olympics initially began as a marketing technique and a way to provide a safe pub crawl, but it’s quickly becoming a tradition. Your ticket buys you transportation, drink tickets, and admission to the awards after-party. “It gets bigger and better every year, and we hope to watch it grow,” says Catigano.
