After a hiatus of two years, during which time over 8 million people voted for Donald Trump to be President, Caitlyn Jenner emerged from her man-shaped cocoon, Moot Bar opened, Peyton Manning won another Super Bowl and we lost not one, but two Malaysian airplanes, it is time to fill out rosters for the long-anticipated second season of the Uncle Barry’s Dart League (UBDL).
The UBDL is a round-robin style tournament in which teams of two compete for a cash prize.
That’s right: Sunday, January 31 will be the date of the 2016 installment of Super Ball, Uncle Barry’s annual meatball cook-0ff. Like its predecessors, Super Ball V will feature the original meatball creations of amateur and professional chefs competing for a cash prize. The event will kick off at 7:00pm and last until around 9:00.
You, the voter, will be tasked with selecting the winning balls. Admission is $10 at the door, which will cover meatballs from all ten participants plus a pint of Founders beer. All in all, a pretty good deal for the consumer.
The electorate will be capped at 75 ballots, so plan on arriving early to nab your spot.
Despite the freakish warmth, UB’s winter beer menu is populated with a tempting schmear of seasonal delights. Alpine’s Pure Hoppiness double IPA is the star of the draft list at the moment, flanked by Bell’s Imperial Red Ale (10.7%!) and annual favorite Anderson Valley Winter Solstice. As always, we also have vintage bottles of Anchor Brewery’s Christmas Ale, some of which has been aging in our walk-in since 2013.
Additionally, let this serve as a friendly reminder that Uncle Barry’s will be open normal hours throughout the holidays, including Christmas, its Eve, and sacred Kwanzaa.
Uncle Barry’s is the cider house in this case. Hot cider is back for another winter, along with a brand new kettle for making hot toddies and the like.
P.S.: As always, we’ll be open normal hours on Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. for all of your holiday drinking needs/wants/tolerates.
Get happy like these guys:
