Boise Weekly Hosts Eighth Annual Bars And Stripes Alley Cat Race 

Saturday, July 6

Eternal glory: That's what awaits the winner of Boise Weekly's eighth annual Bars and Stripes alley cat race.

In honor of the release of the 2013 Coldest Beer issue, Boise Weekly is hosting its annual race Saturday, July 6. Starting from BW headquarters, racers will embark on an epic journey through Boise to complete a number of random tasks on the road to victory—or at least on the road to the end party.

In past years, tasks have included trivia questions, playing blackjack, singing and other mildly humiliating assignments. Along the way, racers must get signatures for every task they complete and every beer they guzzle. The race ends at the Bars and Stripes afterparty at Highlands Hollow Brewhouse, where the public is invited to join in for celebratory drinks.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in both the men's and women's categories. Because Bars and Stripes involves the consumption of some of Boise's best brews, this is a strictly 21-and-older event. Registration begins promptly at 2 p.m. at BWHQ, so get there early since participation is limited to the first 125 cyclists with a valid ID—which they must have with them during the ride.

Start time is 3:15 p.m. Entry costs a mere $12, and the registration package includes an event T-shirt.

Booze, bikes, bars and the potential for intoxication: It's a little bit like working at the Boise Weekly, and there's nothing more patriotic than exercising the First Amendment.
