The Southwest Florida Symphony Society to hold ‘The Pub Olympics’

By Staff | Sep 12, 2012

The Southwest Florida Symphony Society says the Olympics are not over. On Sept. 30, from 4 to 9 p.m., competitions will be taking place at the Dublin Ale House in Cape Coral.

This is the first of the seasons fund raisers to benefit the Southwest Florida Symphony.

The event will feature a full dinner buffet with main courses of bangers, shepherd’s pie and fish & chips with a very special dessert. A beer tasting will be taking place during dinner featuring a sample of your choice of five draft beers. You select the two you like most and receive tickets to redeem them for pints when you are ready for them.

The Olympics portion of the event includes competitions in foosball, darts, pool and shuffleboard. On hand will be coaches for each competition who will be encouraged to take bribes from competitors to insure winning. Such bribes will go to the Symphony Society.

Medals of gold, silver and bronze will be awarded plus prize packages featuring keepsakes to remember the event. Sebastian Coe, Chairman of the 2012 London Olympics Organizing Committee, has been asked to act as Honorary Olympic Organizer but organizers have not heard back from his camp.

For those who are not into sports, jazz will be the featured genre with music played by the Symphony’s Jazz Trio featuring Alex Albanese on bass and Todd Betz on drums.

The Dublin Ale House is on Cape Coral Parkway very close to the intersection with Chiquita in the Cay West shopping complex at 1708 Cape Coral Parkway West.

The cost for everything is $45 per person.

Reservations are required and space is very limited.
