Hit the Headboard

The Great Grove Red Race rolls into Coconut Grove


The bed.

While soft and pillowy and built for sleeping, it's also designed for vigorous activity.

Get your head out of the gutter. We're talking about The Great Grove Bed Race, where teams bolt down the street in wacky homemade beds.

Get amped up the night before at the Pajama Pub Crawl at the new Duffy's Sports Grill in CocoWalk.

Start off around 6p to fuel up on the buffet full of classic chicken wings and fully stuffed burgers before the drunk crawling begins at 8p.

The next morning is race day, where you'll rally up your hungover team of 5 and your makeshift bed runner to coast down Bayshore Drive in front of 30,000 people (talk about exhibitionism).

Be one of the 8 fastest beds in the first battle and you'll move on to the second round to compete for the title of top bed runner.

If things don't work out in the speed department, you could still win best decor or theme.

So yeah. Bring those throw pillows she loves so much.

The Great Grove Bed Race
Sunday November 3rd
