FIVE YEARS! THAT IS NUTS!!!
Here’s what I wrote in my blog post about the first one ever, way back in August 2011:
Well, this has been a dream of mine for a couple years now. The first time I played ping pong in Berlin, my mind was blown and I chanted for weeks and months, “WHY DO WE NOT HAVE THIS IN SAN FRANCISCO???”
Now we do. It’s a party called American Tripps and it debuts the first two Fridays in August.
It starts mellow, everybody strolling around the table, drinks in hand, possibly movin’ to the music, getting to know the people next to you in the circle. And as people mess up and the ranks dwindle, the action gets serious. But not too serious. It’s all in good fun. It’s fun to watch, it’s fun to hang out. It’s fun. It’s the best!
And it still is! I’m still hungover from last night at Pop’s (where we do American Tripps each and every Monday now) thanks to lots of ping pong and lots of beers and shots and lots of bangers by DJ Beauregard.
Friday is gonna be wild.
Here’s the official invite:
It’s been FIVE YEARS! Let’s party!!!
