Baseball season is upon us once again, and as always, Uncle Barry’s has the MLB package fired up and ready to go. Feel free to request any games you want to see, we’ll accommodate on a first-come, first-serve basis. Game on.
Congratulations to Nick Hudak and Saim Ghouse, champions of the first-ever season of the Uncle Barry’s Dart League (UBDL). Team ‘Dak Attack overcame runners-up Kyle Balkcom and Allison Kent and eight other teams to win the league’s $300 grand prize. If you are interested in playing in future seasons of the UBDL, shoot us an email and get in on the action.
Spring is in the air and will soon be available in your glass, as Bell’s highly touted seasonal wheat beer, the mighty Oberon, comes to Uncle Barry’s on Monday, March 24. We’ll be slinging half-liters for $8 while supplies last in what should become an annual spring tradition.
Super Ball III is in the books and this years champions and winners of $315 are David Woolf and Matt Buner. Their Ace of Braise balls, made with hoisin-braised brisket and beef short rib, edged out second-place finishers Adam Bensimon and Tracy Bradshaw, who offered Italian-style beef and spicy jerk lamb and turkey balls, respectively. Last year’s champions Mike Roberts and Jeremy Leech and their oxtail balls in parmesan sauce receive the honorable mention in fourth place. Thanks to everyone who made, ate or even thought about meatballs and helped make Super Ball 2014 a success. Actually, not the people who only thought about meatballs; they contributed nothing and deserve no thanks.
Ladies and gentlemen and any alternative genders, it is time once again for Super Ball, Uncle Barry’s annual meatball cook-off. The event is to take place on Sunday, January 26 at 7:00pm and should run until 9:00 or so, while supplies last.
This year’s cook-off will feature 11 amateur and professional chefs from Brooklyn and beyond competing for a cash prize based on your votes. $10 gets you a pint of Founders Red’s Rye IPA and meatballs from all 11 contestants which you can then vote for your favorites.
Super Ball is always a good, meaty time, so come hungry and let your voice be heard.
