Sunny Scottsdale, AZ was the perfect place to kick off the 2011 CuervoGames 2011.
The 100 + degree temperatures were the perfect way to launch the event (at least for a girl from the Midwest). We never ran out of margaritas, so the heat never became a problem.
What exactly are the CuervoGames, you ask? They are a man’s fantasy playground. You have 1) extreme competition; 2) beautiful women walking around in what some males call “favorable attire”, and; 3) tequila, tequila and, that’s right, more tequila.
But don’t worry ladies–there is room for you at the CuervoGames. Welcome to my tequila adventure!

Saturday Afternoon: The “Bloggers” were ready to test our athletic abilities. We soon found out we did NOT possess what it takes to be a CuervoGames Champion.
I took my best shot at the CuervoGames obstacle course and barely made it out alive. I think I’ll just stick to the Margarita drinking contest.
I am sure if you got a close up of my face on that slide you would see the pain in my eyes, as a layer of skin was taken off. Nothing that a little Jose Cuervo couldn’t fix!
Jacqui and I were lucky enough to steal Demaryius Thomas (Denver Broncos) away from the MAXIM girls. Who am I kidding, he would rather talk to our sweaty selves than flirt with some cutie in a tank and short skirt, right?
I decided to take my chances and ride the Lime. I have to say, I was pretty decent at this. Until I started smack talking the Lime Operator (if that’s what you call him).
The MAXIM Hometown Hottie Contest
After cooling off and cleaning up, we came back to watch the finals, the MAXIM Hometown Hottie Contest and enjoy some Margaritas!
This picture is for the men at Midwest Sports Fans. This could have been you. But it’s me. :)

Last year’s Maxim Hometown Hottie, Lisa Morales, shows the contestants how to do the “Flirty Margarita Shake”. And boy did she have the boys entranced! I need to find out where she got those shoes.

The CuervoGames FINALS in Scottsdale
Yes, there was actually more than just oggling at the MAXIM girls. (Maybe not for the losers from earlier in the day.) Check out the finalists as they challenge themselves to win a spot in the National Finals later this summer.

What do you think fellas? Did the NFL guys do a good job?
So maybe I am not cut out for the CuervoGames. But after this weekend, I am certified as an Official Tequila Taster.
Thinking you don’t have what it takes to compete in the games? No worries. There were plenty of fun events to keep other not-so-superb athletes entertained!
Or you could just come for the music! And of course…Strawberry Margaritas!
You can totally hear us singing. Hahaha
And if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get to meet someone as cool as Benji and Joel Madden!
It was a fantastic weekend at the CuervoGames in Scottsdale, AZ. I can’t wait for them to make their way to Chicago!
