    Watch the best in the biz battle it out in the 2009 Bartender Olympics at Tir Na Nog on Thursday, September 17 (yeah, we know “It’s Always Sunny” starts that night, but there’s always DRV).

    Whether you’re into martinis, Manhattans or something signature, this all-out battle will definitely give you new respect for what these bartenders can do.

    The Olympics consist of three rounds -- fastest (build, pour and shot), signature cocktail and flair, but there’s only one gold medal.

    The winner will walk away with $500 in their pocket and one heck of a trophy.

    Awards will also be given for best personality, outfit and best flair.

    And not only can fans enjoy a little friendly competition, they can also grab $1 Bud Light bottles, $2 Absolut and $3 Stella Artois starting at 6 p.m. and ending at 10 p.m.

    Plus, drinks from the games will be auctioned off and the procceds will benefit the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
