Friday night was the sixth annual Lawrence Chamber of Commerce's Young Professionals Putt Putt Pub Crawl. The event brings together local young professionals for a fun evening of traveling to downtown bars, socializing, and playing putt putt. Each of the participating bars puts together their own putt putt hole, and this year there was a trophy for the best hole, as voted on by participants!
The Sandbar has participated in this event every year, and Dave always tries to make a creative putt putt hole that's not too hard, but not too easy. It's set up on the beach upstairs. This year's hole looked a little like skee-ball with a sombrero on top.
Our web guy/resident Guinness drinker Frank agreed to supervise the putt putt hole. He was all decked out for the occasion in a Hawaiian print shirt. Frank handed out beads to the golfers, and shots were available upstairs. The hallway got a little congested with all the players, but everyone seemed to really enjoy the Sandbar's golf course.
The other bars that participated were Fatso's, the Granada, the Barrel House (they had cornhole instead of mini-golf!), and the Eldridge. The crowd ended up at Johnny's across the river for an after party with pizza and prizes.
Our friend Becki won an awesome door prize- a cooler full of party supplies and four tickets and parking passes to a Royals game in July!
And, the Sandbar was voted best putt putt hole by the players! We'll get a trophy to display in the bar- we'll put it next to our St. Patrick's Day trophy.
