When the weather is nice, Tuesdays at Whiskey Business take the baton as Chicago's top bocce league. They've got a killer rooftop that's all turfed out for us. It's a slightly longer "grain of grass" and that let's players give the ball a little more juice as they shoot their shot. The cabanas and ample seating help ramp the social aspect of the bocce experience to the max setting.
We've got one more run of outdoor leagues, so get into this one before it sells out. Seriously, though: We're only fucking with quality outdoor venues and that has these leagues selling out and selling out quick. With three courts, we have room for 24 teams to play high above the bustling strip of Milwaukee Avenue.
Goose Island is bringing the beer specials and fire prizes. Fernet Branca is a stalwart, a forever thread in our bocce story, and a great shot to start and close your night. And there is little better in late summer than rooftop rolls, lols, and drinks.
League Details: Season begins Tuesday, September 3rd. Playoffs are Tuesday, October 15th. First games get rolling at 6:30 and last at 10:00. We break into early and late divisions. If Mother Nature throws us a wet curveball, then we'll reschedule (or play through if it's reasonable). You don't lose games cuz it rains.
