Who says kicking cancer's a** can't be a fun time?
603 Bar & Lounge in Dover, New Hampshire
Formerly the Central Wave on Central Avenue in Dover, 603 Bar & Lounge (called simply "The 603" by locals) is known for three things -- great drinks, great dancing, and their Sunday night drag shows.
But on April 21, they're going to be known for something else -- helping one of their own beat cancer down through Beerlympics.
On Friday, April 21, the 603 is putting on a special Beerlympics event, all in the name of helping one of their employees.
A few months ago, around Christmas time, an employee at the 603 named Bryan was diagnosed with Sarcoma cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, Sarcoma cancer begins in bone or soft tissue (like cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, etc.) and come in different forms with different treatments and prognosis.
According to family, while Bryan had a rough go of it at first, he's been improving and doing better.
Beerlympics at the 603 in Dover
At the time of writing, there aren't full details on exactly what events will make up the first-ever Beerlympics at the 603, but participating teams will be made up of three members and cost $30 per team ($10 per person), with proceeds going to help Bryan in his battle.
There will also be discounts for all customers that night to celebrate the "Beerlympics for Bryan," with players getting $3 domestic beers, $5 small cheese pizzas, $5 Tito's and more.
Spectators will also receive discounts that night -- $4 domestic beers, $6 small cheese pizzas, $6 Tito's, and more to come as well.
