Reader Mail: Beer Pong

beer-pong-fire.jpgI’ve been known to engage in various bar games, such as darts or billiards or maybe some pinball or Buck Hunter. However, something is a bit skeevy about beer pong. The ball always ends up on the floor. Even a cup of water to “wash it off” doesn’t really comfort me. And tap beer doesn’t work for me either, unless it’s a Guinness.

Regardless of my high-maintenance, Hoboken411 reader Sarah asks:

“Hi 411,

My friends and I love to play Beer Pong/ Flip Cup. Can you let me know if you know of any Hoboken Bars that have tables set up and what nights to go?

Thank you!
Sarah”

I told her that in the past, Rogo’s and O’Donoghue’s had it, but was unsure of the rest of the places.

Anyone that can chime in to help her out? Oh, and some cheesy tool-filled shore house doesn’t count. Hoboken only, please.

[quote comment=”14751″]More importantly, what about real beer pong with paddles? Is there any bar anywhere that lets you play that. And what people are calling “beer pong” is what I refered to as “Beruit”.[/quote]

exactly – at my college, Beirut was a girl’s game requiring zero skill. may as well play quarters like an 18 year old. actually it is more like darts than anything else. “pong” on the other hand – with paddles – is simply the best drinking game on the planet. kids – what are you gonna do?

Apparently very soon (this week?) Tonic (13th and Park) is starting 1000$ beer pong tournaments on Thursday Night.

I’d go with Georges Bataille – Story of the Eye for a “how to”… but thats just me.[/quote]

heh-never heard of it, but Amazon’s description sounds utterly disgusting. I’ll have to order it!

re: de Sade–this strikes me as a “how to” kind of book. I’ll have to check it out.[/quote]

[quote comment=”14893″]Nihil,
I’m looking to pick up something by Don Delillo per your previous post…. Any recommendations?

Maybe The Marque De Sade’s “120 Days of Sodom” might pick up your spirits.[/quote]

I enjoyed Libra, a “biography” of Lee Harvey Oswald that blends fact and fiction.
