Whipping Boys

From top favorite to most pathetic, here’s a little ol' hierarchy of bar games we know some people – not necessarily us – enjoy: Golden Tee. Electronic darts. Binge drinking. Shuffleboard. Billiards. Pocket pool in the bathroom. Striking out with some hot floozy. Pocket pool in front of your fellow duders. Killing yourself.

However, if the spot is banging enough to house a foosball table – which isn't superoften nowadays – the high-paced game of plastic soccer men whipping and rotating to score a goal is most definitely up there. You can participate in rookie-level table football during the TAP Foosball Tournament. Once you've got your, uh, stroke down, you can sit in on advanced play on Friday nights.

Wednesdays, 8 p.m.-midnight; Fridays, 8 p.m.-midnight. Starts: May 23. Continues through Dec. 7, 2007
