Bardog 6th Anniversary Party and Breakaway 5K: Win Entry Tickets!
The annual Bardog Anniversary Alley Party is back this Sunday. It's time to celebrate six years of sliders, daily dogs, cold brews and brunch specials at Bardog on Monroe downtown. It's also the 5th anniversary of the Breakaway Bardog 5K, one of Memphis' most popular races, and I'm giving away two entry tickets to the race. Read on to find out how to enter.
Every year since 2008, Bardog Tavern has hosted an anniversary blowout, with all proceeds benefitting St. Jude. They've raised about $70,000 in the last six years. Wow.
This year they're going even bigger by blocking off Monroe and turning the vicinity into a street festival with food, drinks, music by Bluff City Backsliders, Amurica Photo Booth, dunk tank, and street vendors with local artists and business owners.
Here is my proposed itinerary for you for this coming Sunday:
1. wake up, head downtown, and run the Bardog 5K
2. hang around for beer, sliders, and all the fun and new vendors at the alley party and festival
3. head over to Wiseacre on Broad to the I Love Memphis birthday party around 2 p.m. for cake and more beer.
Sounds pretty good to me!
The 5K starts at 9 a.m. at Bardog. For a $35 registration fee (buy here) runners get race entry, shirt, bag o' swag, three beer tickets, free sliders, and more.
If you want a chance for you and a friend to enter the race for free ($70 value) all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite slider from Bardog (or Slider Inn). I'll do a random drawing tomorrow at 11:30 a.m.
