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.

  1. So what happens if we just want to catch the Old 97’s and don’t care about participating in the games?
