The Hermosa Pier was rockin on Sat 5/2, when Smackfest Events and Bud Light hosted the 2nd Annual Cinco de Drinko Coed 4’s Beach Volleyball tournament. This event is becoming one of the South Bay’s favorites, with great volleyball, Mariachi music, the Jalapeno eating contest, and tons more !! AVP and Olympic volleyball starts converged with Intermediates from Bill’s Hermosa Beach Volleyball class and Volleyball leagues, with fun rule deductions like the Hot Sauce shot (2 people from the losing team chug a shot of Tapitio for 3 points off), as well as my favotire, the Human Nacho (where 1 player on the losing team has chips, salsa and nacho cheese poured on them while the others on their team eat it off – again, 3 points).
The playoffs had some very tough teams, with Jim O’Niel’s team losing to Chris Almonte’s team in the final. The winners received Sharkeez gift cards, NVL/Mikasa volleyballs, Deep Eddy vodka, tons of Bud Light swag, Bionic Body 1 month membership, and lots more. We also had the Barefoot wine purple foot toss game, where people won Barefoot t’s and goodies. Then the party made its way to Sharkeez for the Fight of the Century (or the Flop of the Century) for tons of Bud Light, ‘Rita, Deep Eddy, Cazedores margie, and Barefoot bubbly specials.
