Thursday night (Feb. 10th), a group of brave area residents put their lives (and livers) on the line as they participated in the first-ever Cove to Clover Drink Lab at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub.

After much sampling, arguing, more sampling, more arguing and laughing, five libations were finally decided on. These will be the official drinks at the 2011 Official Cove to Clover Pub Crawl, coming Friday, March 11th:

  • Venom – Tullamore Dew and Irish Mist
  • Fang Banger – Midori, Stoli Rasberry and Cranberry
  • Asp Kicker – Stoli Peach, Cranberry and Orange
  • Crème Cobra – Tullamore Dew, Midori and Carolyns
  • Sssssssshots – Shots of Tullamore Dew or Stoli

More details on the pub crawl:

  • Start at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub at 6pm.
  • 21 and over only!
  • Get your official bib/passport.
  • Drink and food specials at official stops.
  • Register online here now!

And don’t forget – the Cove to Clover 5k Fundraiser Run (full details here) will be Sunday, March 13th (giving you a day to recover from the crawl), and here are some new, exclusive insider details of C2C’s new Big Top Beer Garden:

  • Clover Coins: C2C’s official tender of the Big Top Beer Garden
  • $5 each or 5 for $20 (spendable in the Big Top Beer Garden, only!)
  • A Clover Coin will buy a Manny’s, Roger’s, an official C2C drink or a food item from one of the local businesses.
  • Volunteer food runners will take your coins from stations on the perimeter of the Beer Garden and return with your food.
  • All proceeds will go to charities.

  • Cost per runner is $30 before Feb. 28th, and $35 afterward.
  • There will also be a Family Race, which has a $25 early registration fee.

“This is one of the hardest 5ks in the northwest,” said Race (and Drink Lab) Organizer John Nelson. “So hard in fact that it is fast becoming a test piece for NW runners. For starters, ‘Snake Hill’ rises nearly 1,000-feet in the first mile of the course. Around mile two you’ll encounter ‘The Uprising,’ a runner obstacle that has been constructed in the middle of a live Celtic battlefield. For your suffering, you will be rewarded with on-course Celtic pipers and a finish line festival that delivers the goods (2 beer gardens, 2 stages with live entertainment, free root beer garden and free hot dogs for children). The Snake awakes!”

Cove to Clover is a 501(c)(3) umbrella charity which distributes all proceeds to local charities, including the Highline Area Food Bank, Hospitality House and Highline District Schools. The organization is very lean, and is run by passionate, local volunteers, and last year raised over $36,000 for local charities.

“Be assured, your participation will be making a positive impact on your community,” added Nelson.
