This is not the wobbly Ping-Pong table in your cousin's basement or the warped setup you'll find in a smoke-filled dive bar. The home court at SLAM Table Tennis Social Club at Bogart's in Boca Raton is pretty swank as far as Ping-Pong is concerned. The club -- on the second floor of Cinemark 20 Theater -- is celebrating its one-year anniversary tonight with a table tennis tournament from 6 to 8 p.m., and it's not too late to secure a spot in the competition.
Tourney participants and spectators will get half-priced drinks for the duration of the event. If you feel like talking some smack and showing off your skills on a table, jump into the tournament tonight; the organizers will be fairly flexible in how they arrange the competition. The venue's four tables will be divided into "recreational" and "advanced" levels, so noncompetitors can still play for bragging rights without having to get involved in the tournament itself.
Those who do compete are in the running for a first prize of a $50 gift certificate to Bogart's and two tickets to a "premier level" movie at Cinemark 20. Second prize is a $50 gift certificate to Bogart's, and third is a $25 gift certificate to Bogart's. There's no charge to enter the tournament or to watch. To register or get more info on the event, call 561-544-3044.
