Drinking Olympics Decathlon: Bopping for Shots, Flip Cup, and Beer Pong

A crowd of guys in trucker hats, beanies, and beards, and ladies in Joy Division T-shirts, headbands, and floral rompers drunkenly cheered on the contestants of the Drinking Olympics on the outdoor stage of Blackbird Ordinary.

The festivities, which began well into the night, were held in conjunction with the club's popular Ladies' Night, where the dames in the house are given free Blackbirds -- a dangerous concoction of Seagram's Sweet Tea Vodka, fresh blackberries, and lemonade. There was also music by Deaf Poets and trivia for the brainy in the bunch.

The brave Olympians had to face three rounds of drinking duels: bopping for shots, flip cup, and beer pong.

Out of the teams of four -- the Funky Chickens, Skunk Ape, Turbo Negro, Oh Fuck, the C**ts, the Greys, Where Keeping It Real Goes Wrong, and J Star -- only one heavy drinker would be named the Olympic champion and winner of a $100 bar tab.
