It's in the Bags

Rarely does being good at drinking games pay dividends in the real world. Oh, you may occasionally get the chance to show off your mad beer pong skillz by throwing a balled-up piece of paper into a trash can, but what’s the reward -- not needing to walk five feet to throw something away?

The Bags Tournament at The Duce, however, offers real-world value for your useless expertise at lawn games -- namely bags (a.k.a. cornhole), the one in which you attempt to throw a beanbag through a hole in a wooden board 30 feet away. The very best baggers, in fact, will win $500.

The Duce’s bags tournament costs $60 per team to pre-register and $70 the day of the event, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Girls and Boys Club of Arizona. Bags fly at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 7, at The Duce, 525 South Central Avenue. Visit for more.
