The "World Famous Chicken Drop" is a truly unique beach event held on the white sands outside the Pier Lounge in downtown San Pedro.
Players purchase, at random, "squares" that are basically boards laid on the beach that are numbered one to one hundred. Purchase inside the Pier Lounge. Then when the board is "sold out" a large basket is brought out as participants and spectators crowd around the mesh-like fence that surrounds the numbered boards laid out on the beach.
The crown grows frenzied as Linda Carter (Wonder Woman) announces the event is to begin. A spectator is asked to pick a chicken from the basket, lift it out, and blow air on the chicken's rear and place it over the mesh-like fence onto the boards.
The crowd then begins to chant and urge the chicken "on" as it nears their numbered square.
Eventually, and sometimes it takes two chickens, the chicken poops and splatters on a numbered square, bringing $100BZ to the lucky better on that particular square.
It costs $1BZ per square to play and you can play as many squares as you please. 100% return, with one cavaet: If the chicken poops on your square before you can collect, you must wipe up the poop.
People start buying squares for the "drop" about six every Wednesday and last week there were three drops so get their early, stay late and enjoy the Belikins. They have plenty.
Oh yes, they are Chowder Heads at the Pier Lounge but don't hold that entirely against them.
