WASHINGTON – This isn’t a college party. It’s not a tailgate. No, this is pure, unbridled, “legitimate” competition. The best flippers in the area took to the tables Saturday to determine the champion of the World Series of Flip Cup.
“When we talk to people about it, they start laughing saying, ‘I cant believe this is a real thing,'” says CEO Dan Boger.
But it’s very real – 19 teams, six people per team, means there were more than 100 scouted, talented flippers at Old Dominion Brewhouse in the District.
“We started about eight years ago in Baltimore, Md. Three years ago, we moved it down to D.C. because of the stronger drinking crowd,” says Boger.
Drinking a half-inch of lite beer each round, there are rules to this competition to maintain the level of play. Multiple flip cup champion David Krivonik says his team, the Two Finger Fanatics, makes sure things don’t get sloppy.
“Basically if one person on your team is too drunk, your team can’t play. So people drink water in between. I mean, it’s a blast by all means,” Krivonik says.
