The Tour De Franzia Planning Process {Link Up}

6.12.2013
as you know, tara is in iowa studying for her bar exam.  but she's coming back to visit me next weekend!  in honor of this event, we of course decided we needed to plan some themed drinking event.



and thus, tour de franzia 2013 was born.  it's basically a boxed wine chugging competition.  because who doesn't like boxed wine?!


there's a few ways this can be played.  you can actually bike from various locations and have to drink along the way.  but we don't exercise.  you can also just drink your way around a room and have a different wine for each 'country.'  but we like competition.  so we're making our own rules.

we decided to have teams, and your team must finish your box of wine by the end of the events.  the events are going to include some wine flip cup, wine shot contest, wine chugging, maybe some wine pong and wine cards against humanity, and of course, racing tricycles.  oh yes, tricycles.

you know you want to play.  will you be in chicago that weekend?  feel free to join us at my apartment!  you can even meet hawkeye.

  1. Love tour de franzia! Did this a bunch in college...another fun addition is to wear bike (athletic) wear! Because who doesn't love to slap the bag in spandex shorts and a sweatband :)

  2. Um, if I were free, I'd buy a plane ticket and get my ass there right quick... I LOVE me some boxed wine (because I'm classy as fuck) and throw in some spandex? Where do I sign?!

  12. That has got to be the best some e-card I've ever seen; you'll probably see it on my blog in the near future.

    I should tell my sister who lives in Chicago to head over to your place for this event, it sounds like it's going to be one for the books!
