Chicago is digging in its heels and pushing away the warmth, but we're sure it's coming soon. In preparation of making the most of spring / summer we're noodling up an idea. You guessed it, Horseshoes!
Our brewery, located at 4257 N. Lincoln Ave sits a mere couple blocks from the illustrious Welles Park. One feature of this park is a legit horseshoe pit with around 10 courts within said pit. This strikes us as a great opportunity.
Our thought is to meet at the brewery once or twice a month, say Saturdays at 12:00pm. We "sample" some beer at the brewery, then walk over to the pits and engage in competitive horseshoe play rife with heckling and questionable sportsmanship. After we have our fill, then we head over to one of our fine local establishments that we have pre-organized and they offer us specials and overall praise.
We want to gauge interest. If no one responds, then we'll do it without you. If too many people respond, then we'll likely have tryouts that aim to embarrass and humiliate -- or just take turns. The more the merrier.
Let us know.

PS. I think there will be Half Acre Horseshoes Tshirts involved.
