Tobacco Road's Biggest Slacker Contest With Food Trucks; Weekend Truck Tracker
If this is you, head to Tobacco Road Saturday.
If you're the kind of person who thinks exercise is walking to the fridge to get more beer, we're talking to you! Get your lazy ass off the couch for just once in your life and head to Tobacco Road for the Biggest Slacker contest this Saturday.
The Biggest Slacker is part of the Tobacco Road Brickell
Brewmaster event, which features plenty of beer specials throughout the
Beginning at 6 p.m., contestants pay $15 to sit on a
chair. Tobacco Road will provide the beer (or water), and the last person
sitting without taking a break for any reason (tip: Watch the beer intake) wins a day's salary, compliments of the Road.
Food trucks will be on hand (ask a buddy to buy you a nosh because you can't get up) until midnight.
DJs Oski and Care Bear will provide the entertainment. There's no cover to watch these lazy bastards just sit there, by the way.
