Group breaks bar-hopping record

NEW YORK, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- A group of 13 drinkers visited 200 bars throughout New York's Manhattan to set a new Guinness World Record for most pubs visited within a 24-hour-period.

The "Thirsty 13" hit the 200 pub mark after 10 hours of bar-hopping that began at 8:45 a.m. Saturday at O'Hanlon's Pub on 14th Street, the New York Daily News reported. After visiting pizza joints, sake bars and European bistros, the group ended its record-breaking day at Solas on E. 9th Street where group leaders Chris Solarz and Bea Reigh celebrated their wedding anniversary. The two met three years ago at Solas during a speed dating event.

In order to break the previous record of 170 bars within a day, the New York group had one member drink a half pint at each bar they visited. The visits were documented on camera and each drink was signed off by a bartender. The documentation will be reviewed by the Guinness World Records organization before the "Thirsty 13" are named the official record-holders.
