To commemorate the event, the bar is hosting a slew of events throughout the day, including setting up a charity dunk tank, proceeds from which will be donated to the ALS Association. It's $1 per throw (you get a ball, you throw it at the bullseye to dunk the human).
Notable people slated to get dunked include:
- Blake "The Attorney" Maislin (needs no introduction)
- Jacob Trevino (owner, Gorilla Cinema Presents)
- Kim Buzek (owner, Sidewinder Coffee)
- Evan Millward (reporter, Channel 9)
- Mike Stankovich (owner, Longfellow)
- Bridget Battle (Tweens)
- Ross McAllister (sales, Rhinegeist)
- Val Diehl (Best Of Cincinnati's female bartender of the year)
- Jon Weiner (NYSC co-owner/Dopamines founder)
- Stuart MacKenzie (NSYC co-owner/musician)
- John Hays (musician/comedian)
- Chris Alsip (national promoter)
- Hideki Harada (chef/Kiki College Hill)
- Dave Wellerding (hockey player/beer rep)
And if you thought you couldn't have more fun while giving back, you'd be wrong. The NSYC team returned to Rhinegeist to brew their collaboration pale ale Dinghy. "We literally made the beer, like I was in the tank scooping our grain," says NSYC co-owner MacKenzie.
According to Rhinegeist, Dinghy is a "port side Pale Ale, balancing a dope duo of resinous pine and rampant tropical hop character." And $1 from each Dinghy pint sold during the event will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
If you want to do more than drink, the kitchen will be dishing out a Low Country boil buffet ($20) replete with crawfish, smoked sausage, shrimp, potatoes and corn, plus sides — dirty rice, cucumber salad, mint and summer squash and black-eyed pea salad.
