I’ve done some digging and found some info on the upcoming CuervoGames the Old 97’s will be playing at. According to the press release I found:

Jose Cuervo arrives to Austin with the CuervoGames, a FREE festival event for adults 21+ that will feature a grueling American Gladiators-style competition, food, music and more.

CuervoGames features a series of interactive challenges created to test the athletic prowess and skill of local competitors. Teams of four can go head-to-head on the Barrel Roll, where competitors climb a Mayan Pyramid to capture a series of flags at the top, the Waterfall Climb, where teams scale a 20-foot rock climbing wall as they’re drenched by rushing water, the Highwire Harvest, where they test agave farming skills 30 feet in the air, or in the Margarita Madness, a messy race against the clock to make the ultimate cocktail.

The winning team will earn a FREE trip to Las Vegas on Halloween weekend, where they’ll represent their hometown in the CuervoGames National Finals.

Cuervo’s “Ride the Lime” offers consumers an on-site challenge (think mechanical bull) and FREE CuervoGames gear as they cheer on their favorite teams.
