Season 5: Patio Bocce [Wed]

WNB Cleo's (outdoors)


This league begins Wednesday September 04th, 2019

League Info

Cleo's is quickly staking claim as Chicago's go-to summer bocce home. The courts are meticulously maintained by the main man Kevin Grish. Now, I don't want to twist ya up thinking these are fast track flat and Olympian, but to ask for more from a set of back patio blissful bocce courts would be insanity. It's a beautiful thing.

The Cleo's leagues don't sell out quick just cuz people like the courts, though. Courtney is the best server in the business, so if you're ever without a drink in hand then there's only yourself (and maybe teammates) to blame. The patio is in the heart of UK Village, but it's set back off the street and you're set amongst the sky with vines and balconies and damn it's just so lovely. Quality people, quality courts, and high quality times. Cannot beat it. 

Half Acre hits us with the heat in the form of $5 tallboys of Volo deliciousness and sweet swag goodness. Fernet Branca is a stalwart, a forever thread in our bocce story, and a great shot to start and close your night, celebrate your wins and mourn your losses. Wednesdays has half off burgers and wraps.
