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. Bocce Bambino is batting cleanup in our 2019 League Calendar and it's 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. 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. New Belgium and Fernet Branca bring you the boozy goodness and Dan Spomer leads this Good Ship Bocce.
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—firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com—and we'll make it happen.
