Dundee Challenge 2007

There’s going to be a rumble in the Douglass Loop area Friday night, and it’s not going to be pretty. It’s time for the annual Dundee Challenge 2007, appropriately held on Friday the 13th.

Here’s the low-down:

Basically, between you and a friend, you have to drink each beer on tap at the Dundee Tavern (2224 Dundee Rd., 458-6637). There are 20 taps, so that breaks down to 10 beers each. Some are light (Bud Select), some are dark (Rogue Dead Guy) and some are just plain disgusting (Hefeweizen). It’s not really a time competition — you drink at your own pace — but you MUST finish the beer in its entirety, before the bar closes (usually around 12:30 or so). Each beer is selected at random, drawn from a magic Guinness hat. And there’s no trading. No skipping. No feeding it to the dog (read: your cheap friend who’s not participating).

That’s it. But it’s tougher than it may sound. There are no prizes and no drink specials to speak of. With just your will power and mighty liver in hand, knowing that you can dominate the taps is reward enough for any man or woman.

If anybody out there wants to join in on this Challenge, just make sure you bring a partner who can drink. I’m thinking we’ll begin around 6:30, hopefully in the bar part of Dundee. Leave me a comment if you’d like to join in. I dare you.
