Berlin-Stlye Ping Pong this Friday

Looking to do something quirky this Friday night? Why not try your luck at Berlin-Style ping pong hosted by American Tripps? If you aren’t familiar with this more social form of paddling and drinking – I’ll give you the low down. Basically, a group of people circle a ping-pong table while each taking turns hitting the ball. Each time someone misses, they are out. A bit like musical chairs, the end of the game is the most exciting part. When there are just 2-3 players left, they have to run in order to get to the ball in time. Look at this video if you are still confused.

 

Come to the place where it all began at The Secret Alley from 7-11 p.m. this Friday. It is only $5 to get into the artsy warehouse and Tolleph will be blasting some tunes for your pleasure. They say to get there early if you want to play because last time there was a line wrapped around the block!

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
