Few things pair better than brew with games.
From beer pong to flip cup to around the world to Edward Fortyhands, nothing is more entertaining than a bit of competition while drinking.
While we do realize that most these are activities designed for college students looking to get sloshed, even mature adults like to play games and catch a buzz from time to time. Besides, as long as you sip on craft beers, it's very grown up.
While there are always options like pool, pin ball, or video games, it's nice to be able to scream out every once in a while, to rub your win in your fellow competitors' faces.
Sometimes you just need to let go with a good ole' game of bingo.
Starting tomorrow, the Riverside Market is bringing back beer bingo.
Starting at 7 p.m. tomorrow night (and taking place on the first Wednesday of the month from here on out), beer bingo is back due to popular demand.
"Between the various craft beer releases that Riverside has been selected to host from exciting new breweries, Beer Academy, and my commitment to Boy Scouts & Cub Scouts on Tuesday nights, Beer Bingo had to take a temporary back seat," says Riverside Market owner Julian Siegal. "But now, we're getting back to our roots, and providing one of the original signature activities that Riverside is known for."
The craft beer-haven has teamed up with Sam Adams for the return of the event. Five bucks buys the first card, each additional one is just $2.
While no cash prizes are given out (it's not actual gambling), the brewery will be onsite with special prized to commemorate its 30th anniversary.
"We've teamed up with Samuel Adams who is hosting the return of Beer Bingo in conjunction with their Cheers to 30 Years promotion," says Siegal. "Prizes will include Sam Adams Beer, merchandise, and swag."
Make sure to call ahead, as the games tend to fill up quickly.
Riverside Market is located at 608 SW 12th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-358-8333, or visit facebook.com/riversidemarket.
