The route and medal events have been finalized.  Here’s the schedule/locations.  To be fair to all athletes involved, events will be revealed at the Opening Ceremonies at 83 Proof.  Let’s just say, if you want to go for gold, be prepared to drink.  A lot.  And with style, speed, and finesse!  Points will be awarded at the arbitrary whims of the judges.  And teamwork will be required!


  • 4:30 – 5:45 pm:  Opening Ceremonies and qualifying event at 83 Proof (83 First street @ Market/Mission)

  • 6:00 – 7:00pm:  EZ5 (684 Commercial – alley between Kearny/Montgomery and Clay/Sacramento)

  • 7:15 – 8:45 pm:  Bamboo Hut (479 Broadway @ Kearny/Montgomery)

  • 8:50 – 10:00 pm:  Harringtons (245 Front @ Sacramento/California)

  • 10:15 – ???:  Closing Ceremonies are back where we started @ 83 Proof (you know where)

  • Teams with a common theme (country, sport, era) are highly encouraged!
  • Speedos, … not encouraged! (unless you bear a striking resemblance to a certain Michael Phelps…)

You don’t need to have a team, a sport, or even a liver, to compete. Everyone is welcome!  There will be a qualification round, then medal events at each stop.

Hope to see y’all there!



The Puff-n-Sip Pub Crawl Committee

Bringing you the best this town has to offer…

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

No, we are not going to adopt this slogan, even though Puff’n’sip is arguably amongst the best. But this week we are in our annual luck since 14th Annual North Beach Festival respectfully schedules their Jazz on Grant event on Puff’n’sip day.

But to make it all so much sweeter, today is The Day for AGF. The man is so old that if there was a groundbreaking ceremony for Puff’n’sip, he probably was dug out during it, but he definitely was there. On behalf of all Bunnies and Bad Santa’s – Happy Birthday!

5:04 PM @ Sens, 4 Embarcadero Center (@ Justin Herman Plaza)

Lords and Ladies –

The Local


Boy, it’s hot, oh, boy…

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

It really is nice. Strutting down the street knees and toes naked. Feeling the soft tap of the warm mellow breeze on my face. Dabbing away drops color of “is it in you? – lemon lime” from my forehead. Wincing from the sharp tingle of the fresh sunburn. Summer time! Nice…

But for now, I am stuck to this keyboard and we have business to discuss. Firstly, congrats to LB for winning the Second Annual Bar Golf! The Masters’ Green Jacket hand off ceremony will take place at today’s Puff’n’Sip. And we collected $157 in support of Iowa’s residents who suffered from the recent deluge. Thank you, good people of Puff’n’sip!

Now, today’s July 9, 2008 Puff’n’sip will commence @

5:01 PM @ Chaya Brasserie, 132 Embarcadero (@ Howard)

and proceed @

6:49 PM to Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lotsa love,

Big Red.
