Hoboken411, the leading Hoboken area Website had this to say about our contest series in their city:
Can you drink fast enough to keep up?
On Tuesday October 6th The Shannon will host the first in a series of contests to find the fastest bartender in Hoboken. The Fastest Bartender Contest has been conducting contests throughout the Mid-Atlantic since 1980 and they’ll be conducting contests in Hoboken throughout this month. These exciting contests pit bartender against bartender in front of loud enthusiastic crowds. With fans cheering, music thumping, and beverages flowing faster than seemingly possible, the event is unlike anything you’ve ever seen in a bar.
It’s about more than finding the fastest bartenders in town and having a great time though. The participating bars and great fans who turn out to show their support help the Fastest Bartender Contest raise money for a great cause. These Hoboken Fastest Bartender Contests will be raising money for the Hoboken YMCA. Billy Reilly, the “Commissioner” of Fastest Bartender Contest said, “The Hoboken YMCA has been serving seniors, handicapped, disabled, youth and teens for 80 years. The facility needs work so they can continue doing good and we’re pleased to be supporting their efforts”. The manager of The Shannon says, “Supporting our local community is important to us. I think this is a great way for the bars to come together for a good cause and a great time.”
In all there will be four qualifying rounds leading up to the finals on October 27th back where it gets kicked off, at the The Shannon. Here’s the contest schedule:
- Oct 6th Tue 8 pm The Shannon – Qualifying Round
