ThNB Brickhouse Bocce Season 2: Spring Training

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. Spring Training will be about taking advantage of opportunities—whether it's to hit that clutch CASINO, get out on the patio on a nice day, or win your first bocce championship. 

The rolls at Wrigleyville's Brickhouse Tavern are some of the sweetest you'll find. (To that end, be on the lookout for a turf upgrade.) 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.
