Need an excuse to party? Well, now you have one, thanks to Dirty Blondes Sports Bar and Wild Turkey American Honey.

Throughout October, there will be a reason to drink as you play for the gold during the inaugural Bar Olympics. Every Thirsty Thursday, teams of two or four will compete in five popular bar games: Pop-A-Shot Basketball, Boxing, Darts, 2-Minute Drill Football, and Skeet Ball. Never heard of any of these? We're not sure we have either, but now is the time to learn. Teams with the top three combined scores will make a name for themselves with bar tabs ranging from $10 to $30 toward food and drinks.

The cost is $5 per person, $10 for a team of two, or $20 per team of four. Each player will receive his or her choice of a complimentary domestic or craft draft, well drink, or American Honey cocktail; a scorecard; and free play on all five games.

In addition to the prizes, recognition, and house rules, event cosponsor Wild Turkey American Honey will keep all contestants and runner-ups happy with free shots and swag.

Dirty Blondes is located at 229 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. The games will begin Thursday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Teams can register onsite at 5:30 p.m. or in advance at Dirty Blondes Facebook Page or online at bit.ly/DBbarolypmics.

But don't think about leaving the bar before the game is over! Nothing says Thursday Night Football like a glass of Wild Turkey American Honey, as there will be free shots from 7 to 9 p.m. and special $4 American Honey drinks all night long.
