The Restaurant Bar Olympics, held Aug. 6 at Ruddertowne to benefit the Dewey Business Partnership, went off with a little drizzle in the mix. Three heats of six teams each presented a $150 donation and they competed in four games - tray carrying, dizzy bats, raw egg relays and kayak races. The Rudder Bar team was the winner for the 2013 games.
