Frat party for adults

Lazy Day and Rock House Events have hosted Socialympics on Lake Norman for the past four years. Described as a cross between Will Ferrell's "Old School" and the Greek Week events of "Revenge of the Nerds," teams of 8-10 people compete against each other in such games as Flip Cup, Beer Pong, Dizzy Bat race and, the crowd favorite, the Bacardi Bathing Suit Swap.


I decided to check out the madness at Midtown Sundries on Saturday.

My first mistake may have been waiting until 3:30 to arrive. Contestants had been drinking since registration uptown at 11, then continuing to drink on a Ragin' party bus, then drinking some more during the competition itself. Couple that with the sun and people were practically delirious.
In 10 minutes, I witnessed:
  • A girl pull her bikini bottoms down to moon her beer pong opponents.
  • A girl, with the help of a female teammate, push her rather large breasts together to distract her male beer pong opponents.
  • And, a guy walking around with a mildly offensive message to women on his back.
In short, if you feel like reliving your wild college years, sign up for next year's games.

I'm posting a few photos on my Facebook page for those who aren't offended easily. And, as always, Lazy Day has hundreds more adult-rated pics from throughout the day.

This is all very sad. I guess since community colleges don't have Greek life this is the best way for them to get it out of their systems.

Based on the pictures, I think we have a very different definition of what the word fun means. What's more moronic? Me thinking this sounds like a stupid idea, or a bunch of dudes with tribal band tattoos hanging out with their shirts off?

"Redneck Yankees: Worst kind of Redneck, worst kind of Yankee."

I coined that whilst hanging out at Birkdale and observing the local yokels. Seems germane here as well...

To the two above posts, if you cannot just let go and party every once and a while then what is your idea of a "good time"

I am thinking that the first poster might take himself a little to seriously. Life is too short have fun...

I thank god every day I went to a college with REAL frat parties (Animal House style) instead of this McFratParty crap that's gotten popular since "Old School" and "Girls Gone Wild".

Reality check: real college parties are absolutely nothing like this... this is the kind of stuff that 40-something losers with a camera crew design to play on the fantasies of old men. And you can always find a few streetwalkers and roid-heads to complete the picture.

The guy with the message on his back is a fat pig. Can't imagine he got in anyone's anything... At least not if she was sober and had even an ounce of self respect. He should have used the money he spent on body paint to buy a bathing suit that actually fit.
