It’s going down TOMORROW! That’s right, The “A” Game: a good old-fashioned card and day party: Black Panther Edition kicks off in a few hours! Once more, you can come enjoy your favorite card games — spades, UNO, and more at the Brooklyn Tap House. Awesome door prizes and happy hour drinks will be offered. As always, the force of nature herself, DJ Monday Blue, will be spinning classic 80’s/90’s R&B on the 1’s and 2’s, so there will be plenty dancing and revelry for non-card players, too!
Let’s Celebrate Black Panther and Black History!
Y’all KNOW we couldn’t let the Black History Month pass without celebrating the milestones of so many who paved the way. So in honor of BHM, and the groundbreaking, gamechanging film, BLACK PANTHER, there will be a Black Movie Trivia Contest in the afternoon. And feel free to rock your Black Panther attire! A prize will be given to the person that the audience deems most creatively outfitted for the occasion.
Back by popular demand, there will be a 3-round, bracket-style, rise-and-fly tournament Spades Tournament! The tournament is sold out, but we will have a WAIT LIST to fill in if there are no-shows at 4:30PM. If you wish to be added to the wait list, RSVP and arrive early!
This promises to be one of our most fun parties yet, and as always, we look forward to hanging with all of you. Card lessons will be offered as well, so secretly not knowing how to play spades is no reason to miss out on the fun (especially since we’ve learned there are many of you in our midst)! So come out with your friends, and get ready to make new ones. Just bring your crew, bring your appetites, and of course, bring your “A” game!
Event Time: 4pm-8pm
Spades Tournament: 4:30pm Sharp
Admission: General Admission $6 plus fees or $9 at the door
Tournament Admission: $12 per person at the door (handsome prizes for the winning team)
