Competing in the Great Urban Race this Saturday, Feb. 8, just may push you to your mental, physical and emotional breaking point. Depending on how you finish, you’ll either be ready to celebrate or toast to good sportsmanshipin a BACARDĺ Oakheart® cocktail among friends. Either way, you’ll be looking for good cocktails to enjoy in some of Austin’s best bars. Where you should go for your post-race day celebration depends on the outcome.

Wait, We Were Racing?

So maybe this wasn’t your year. You found yourself saying things like, “Running is hard,” and “Are there any challenges we can perform sitting down?” You and your out-of-breath comrades should head into the Chuggin’ Monkey for some BACARDÍ Oakheart® mixed with Coke. The relaxed, two-story bar in the old brick of historic 6th Street is the perfect place to plan next year’s P90X exercise regimen. You’ll start tomorrow… probably.

Yeah, I’m a Stud

You killed it. You were running that thing like you planned the events. You were bobbing and weaving around band equipment on 6th Street. You were solving crossword puzzles like a computer. At one point you even hurdled some small detour signs; you just can’t be stopped. Now that the race is over, it’s time to do some real work. You’re ready for an Oak & Coke, at the gem of East 6th, Mooseknuckle. The Oak keeps your game face on, while the soda keeps you going. After all, any place that all serves cocktails by the pitcher has got ‘win’ written all over it.

Dog and Pony Show

Exhausted may not have been the way to start race day. Then again, that Dallas road trip to sit courtside at the game was your responsibility as a sports fan. Since then you’ve completed everything the Great Urban Race could throw at you. It wasn’t your best race, but under the circumstances just finishing was an achievement. Celebrate still being alive-and-kicking by slowly sipping on a BACARDÍ Oakheart®and pineapple juice topped with ginger ale and a few squeezes of lime at the Thirsty Nickel. Let the open façade and great music sooth lull you out of exhaustion. After all, days like this let you know you’re alive.

Tell My Partner We’re Through

You know what they say about the Great Urban Race, if you can’t love someone who is tossing marshmallows at your face or cheerleading in drag, maybe it wasn’t meant to be. At least we’re pretty sure they say that. It’s fine—lots of couples have ended their relationships fighting about directions in a high-pressure situation involving clown make up. You’re not the first, and you definitely won’t be the last. So while tensions are still high, cool your jets withan Oak and Ginger (BACARDÍ Oakheart®with ginger beer, bitters and lime) while eating some southern comfort food at Moontower Saloon. After all, the healing power of ginger has been known to mend the upset stomach, and even the passive aggressive teammate.

Next Year, I’m Bringing A GPS AND A Satellite Phone

You almost had it! You had the custom matching jerseys, the waterproof map of downtown, the one liter CamelBak, and even the new Mizunos. If you hadn’t taken that wrong turn down West 3rd Street, you’re sure you would have won it all. Now it’s time to relax and retrace all the places you could have shaved off a couple minutes from this year’s route. Sip your classy BACARDÍ Oakheart® Hydrator (Oakheart and Coconut Water), while surveying Austin’s skyline from Rattle Inn’s rooftop deck. You may have missed the shortcut down that alley off West 7th, but at least the smooth taste of a BACARDÍ Hydrator will soothe your emotional wounds.
