Bars are pretty good places for a challenge. Undoubtedly you’ve seen folks guzzling as much beer as their bladders could hold or making a pass at someone to prove something (however silly it may be). The upcoming Amazing Race Bar Crawl goes beyond such senseless activities. Teams race to complete a series of tasks at seven bars in Uptown. By completing the challenges (which increase in difficulty depending on whether they are completed correctly upon first attempt), clues are revealed about future destinations. Ultimately, the team who finishes the quickest wins. Proceeds benefit a much larger cause, the AIDS Walk of Charlotte. For more information or to register, visit www.barsagainstaids.org.
