Gurus Happy Hour: Game On

By Julia Beizer

The games begin at 6 p.m. at Rocket Bar on Thursday. Come out and play. (James M. Thresher)

Beer and games -- a match made in heaven. The two have been entertaining college kids from the beginning of Quarters Era, through the Age of Beer Pong and into the Wii Bowling Epoch of today. That's why we love Rocket Bar. In addition to the usual selection of suds and televisions, the underground lair has shuffleboard, pool, darts and skee-ball.

So in a month like March, where basketball tourneys and brackets turn up our urge to compete, Rocket Bar seemed like a natural pick for our monthly Going Out Guide Happy Hour. From 6 to 8 p.m., we've got drink specials like $3 PBR cans and $4.50 Miller High Life pounders and free pizza and sliders from nearby Matchbox. Enter our free raffle on the way in and you might walk home with one of two sets of VIP tickets to Taste of the Nation.

Got an extra-special urge to prove your dominance over the rest of the Guru-reading population? Enter our shuffleboard tournament. Teams of two will face off to win a pair of iPod shuffles. We'll be filling the brackets on a first-come, first-serve basis, so show up early if you want to play.

See you Thursday!

-- Julia

$3 for a PBR, and that's a happy hour special. You have to be kidding me.!

You can get a six pack of PBR for $3 at any store.

But then you'd be at home with a sixer of PBR. Come on -- hanging out with us and other reader has got to be more fun than that!
