ThNB Brickhouse Bocce Season 1: The Leadoff

Description

A bocce league in the shadow of Wrigley Field. A chance to bring glory to this hallowed block. The thunk of your toss hitting the turf. The crack of hitting another bocce ball. The roar of an excited (and yes, somewhat inebriated) crowd. The Leadoff league sets the tone for the rest of the years lineup. I have no doubt it's gonna start with a bang. 

The rolls at Wrigleyville's Brickhouse Tavern are some of the sweetest you'll find. The energy around all the games is contagious and just plain fucking awesome. It's a league with friends of old and friends of new and you better believe that brings some rivalries along with it.

This is a great league for beginners. If you're a bocce veteran reading those words and thinking a championship is there for the taking, then you are kindly mistaken. If you're short of 4 to make a team, then reach out to us—danspomer@americanbocceco.com and matt@americanbocceco.com—and we'll make it happen.
