Grown-Up Easter Event Set for April 4 at Destin’s Boathouse

It’s that time of year again! It’s the second annual Boathouse Oyster Bar Easter Keg Hunt Saturday, April 4. Have fun being a kid again at this adults-only Easter Egg hunt and dog adoption event for Road Dogg Rescue starting at 10 AM.


This is the second event in the 2020 Slacker series. Not sure what a Slacker series means? Well, a Slacker, by definition, is someone who doesn’t really want to exercise but still wants to have fun. So the very smart folks at the Boathouse put together a series of events that do just that. They have a whole schedule of them and the next one is the Easter Keg Hunt.


Starting at 10 AM, Slackers and soon-to-be Slackers will scour the Boathouse property to find three hidden kegs. The first one to find and drink a 12-ounce beer from all three kegs wins. So grab your designated driver and come on down.


Plastic eggs will also be hidden and filled with a variety of treasures. Dig in the back of your closet, find those elbow pads, and wear your running shoes—the person who retrieves the most eggs wins a prize.


And how do you make this fun event even more fun? Dress up! Costumes are seriously encouraged, and there will be a separate prize for the best costume.


All proceeds from the event benefit Road Dogg Rescue and their furry friends. The Easter Keg Hunt is an adoption event, so come ready to meet puppies and take one of these guys home to add to your family.


Be sure to stop by PetSmart and grab a 20-pound bag of dog or cat food, and The Boathouse will give you additional drink tickets. Feed a dog and get some extra drinks—sounds like an excellent plan.


Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 on event day. You must be 21 to play and, of course Slacker friends, drink responsibly.


Other Slacker Events on the calendar this year include the Slacker 0.5K May 23 and the Slacker Olympics Aug. 29. Both events also benefit Road Dogg Rescue.


Also—the Treasure Hunt Sept. 19, benefiting Alzheimer’s research; the Turkey Trot Nov. 14, benefiting Food for Thought; and Dock the Halls Dec. 13, a partnership with Emerald Coast Foundation and Children in Crisis.
