New Thing #325: Glow In The Dark Ping Pong


I attended a client party tonight at Spin, a ping pong social club in Toronto. Yes, there actually is such a thing.

Aside from having some fun playing table tennis throughout the night, it turns out that everything goes under the black light at 10:00pm. 

We didn’t get to play for long since out time on the tables had techincally run out an hour earlier, but the bit we did play was pretty damned fun. If you’ve ever bowled under black light you know the feeling. Everything becomes disembodied, and all you can focus on are the relevant pieces. 

It makes it both easier (being able to focus on the ball) and harder (not being able to judge the table) at the same time. 

If it weren’t so expensive, I’d love to get a bunch of people together and run a tournament some time.



New Thing #179: Shuffleboard


Shuffleboard is one of those terribly cliché boring games that I have ALWAYS wanted to play.

The resort we’re staying at has not one, but two shuffleboard courts.

It’s everything I love about bowling, darts and curling all rolled into one. If I could build a court in my back yard, I would.

I’m such a nerd.
