TNB Montrose Saloon (outdoors) Season 3: Backyard Bocce


We're going back back to Montrose Saloon for some backyard bocce action. They've got two built-in sand courts in their very chill backyard. These 40' courts are flipflop optional, beach bocce replicating, and beautiful. The beer list is deep, the prices are right, and, as ever, Fernet Branca is there to give your bocce game a jolt. 

Expect more details and announcements to come in the next week, but you don't need to know anymore than good court, great bar, and even better people. There's no skill necessary to join. We emphasize the social aspect, teach the game, and everyone picks up the finer points while drinking fine pints. 

League Details: Season currently set to begin on Tuesday, May 21st. We'll take Fourth of July week off and then come back for the playoffs on Tuesday, July, 9th. First games get rolling at 6:30 and the last at 10:00. If the weather doesn't cooperate, then we reschedule. You don't lose games because Mother Nature had her own plans.
