On Thursday, July 14, local wait staff will put their tray-balancing skills to the test at the 6th Annual Waiters’ Race, an event exclusively held by the Princeton Merchants Association. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. at Palmer Square, by the Green. (There is no rain date for this event.)

Waiters and waitresses from Princeton area restaurants will race while balancing two full glasses of water and a full BAI Beverage bottle on their trays.
