Beat Someone’s Ass in Foosball at Kennedy’s on Thursday!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Let's get wasted and play foosball, bro!

I was introduced to Kennedy’s because my sister used to work at Rainforest Cafe on Fisherman’s Wharf for a while, and after hours of serving something called “Rasta Pasta” to extremely rude and awkwardly-dressed tourists (money belt, anyone?), she would head to Kennedy’s for some late-night fun, then stumble home with strange FREE beer tokens that resembled wooden nickels spilling out of her pockets (you get these on weekdays during happy hour from 5pm – 7pm, where if you buy one $5 beer on tap, you get a token for another FREE beer).  I’m 99% sure she did not get these tokens legitimately.

I haven’t thought much about Kennedy’s lately because usually when I’m feeling like reliving my rambunctious sorority days, or even being social, I just head to the freezer to retrieve the huge bottle of Ketel One I bought at BevMo three months ago.  Btw, totally kidding about the sorority thing.  I had enough STDs by the time I got to college — didn’t need any more.  But my good friend was, oddly, the president of his frat, and from what I hear, the big thing in their house was FOOSBALL.

Kennedy’s doesn’t care whether you went Greek in school or if you even went to school.  They just want you to come out for a foosball tournament of epic proportions.  Actually, I don’t know how epic it is because I think they do this every week, but it sounds pretty fun nonetheless.  Grab a partner and get there at 7pm to practice beating some ass.

Also, if you get hungry, Kennedy’s is also an Indian restaurant with surprisingly good food, and if you go here, you can print out this coupon for 15% off.

Open/Draw-Your-Partner Foosball Tournament at Kennedy’s Irish Pub & Curry House Thursday, May 27, 7pm – 1:30am 1040 Columbus Ave. (btwn Taylor & Chestnut) [North Beach/Telegraph Hill] $5 rookies, $7 pros

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
