Roundhouse Bar Bartender Olympics


Sponsored by the Roundhouse Bar, this popular island event is held on the main strip Delaware Avenue and inside the red round bar. Competition begins at 7 pm with a parade and the lighting of the Olympic torch.

Local bars and restaurants perform unique skits and zany theatrics. The main event is a float parade with skits. This is followed by a keg roll. Then every team has to man up and do the can carry competition. Indoors, events include the poem, "what bartending means to me" oratory, best new drink recipe, perfect shot pour, and bartender knowledge quiz.

Stay tuned for results and announcement of winners!

Put-in-Bay is a popular vacation spot just 2 miles offshore of mainland Northwest Ohio in Lake Erie. While "Put-in-Bay" is technically the name of the village on South Bass Island, the name commonly is inadvertently used to refer to the entire island. A summer resort since the mid-1800's, the village can be considered the hub of tourism among the Lake Erie Islands, with its numerous taverns, wineries, restaurants, waterfront condos, rental homes, and hotels.
