Ping pong at Pop’s!

American Tripps Now at Pop's

[Editor's note: This is actually my event, so the Pop's folks let me write the blurb. Please enjoy...]

Sooo, what’s “Berlin-style ping pong night” mean anyway? Well it’s three things…

  1. It happens in the evening, in a dark, friendly neighborhood bar, where the booze is flowing and the party vibes are strong
  2. There are DJs spinning upbeat danceable jams, both familiar and unfamiliar
  3. The ping pong is a little different, played in a social and casual and kinda trippy way that allows 20+ people to take part

Here’s an animated GIF of that last one:

Tonight will be just like that except there’s a lot less room at Pop’s, so the circle is much tighter — and thus it’s much easier to make new friends ;)

Check out this week’s entertainment line up at Pops Bar:
