GOKickball Bar and Contest

Hello DPT readers.  It's time to get involved and help shape one of our endorsed kickball leagues.

GOKickball has been very appreciative that many of us have decided to try their league this Winter/Spring.  The league manager, Johnny, is willing to let our group help make key decisions which will define our experience.  Today, we have two items to discuss.

1)  League Bar - We have gotten two offers from bars which we feel are acceptable.  Please comment, email, text, gChat or communicate to me your choice.  If you don't vote or don't spread the word to others to vote, then we will assume you don't have a preference and are OK with the federal deficit tripling in two years.
  • Bungalow - $1 beers (not sure which type, but probably Miller Lite draft equivalent).  20% off all food and liquor drinks. They'll pay for karaoke if we find them a vendor.  They've also agreed to open their private room upstairs to our group so we'll have our own bar.
  • Yard of Ale - $2 drafts / $7 pitchers of Yuengling and one other beer TBD (either Fosters, Presidente or Stella).  50% off all pizzas.  They'll bring in karaoke for us.
So start voting, debating and commenting.  We need a consensus ASAP.

2)  Division Name - We need a name for the division, and GKB wants to tap into our creative minds.  There will be a post on GKB - Tampa's FaceBook wall at 6pm tonight opening the contest.  "Like" them so you can participate.  If a name you suggest is selected, you will win a $50 bar tab at the season meet and greet (February 3rd).  That's right... a kickball league is actually going to give someone free drinks, instead of drinking beer and then charging us for it.  If you aren't playing in GKB, I'm sure you're still eligible to win.  You can suggest names here on DPT... but it won't count for the contest so make sure to go on FaceBook and suggest also.

That's all for now.  Hope those who celebrate Christmas had a nice one.  And those who don't... at least the annoying cliche songs will cease.

Yard of Ale is my choice.. mainly to talk crap to the peeps at McDintons and to challenge them to Flip Cup to the Death matches... But mainly to talk crap to them from across the street. Maybe throw stuff at Balls and Dolls... Has Todd defected yet, he's been unusually quiet???

Dont really go out to the bars too much afterwards, but I think most people would want a place that serves liquor.. Yard of ale does not? If not, probably bungalo.

I'm Ron Burgundy?

I like the idea of Yard of Ale. We don't need kickballers running across Kennedy after going to the bar and Bungalow doesn't have the best parking situation.

I'm for Bungalow. I like $1 beers better than $2 beers. Both are good options though. What would the karaoke budget be? Maybe I should go get a karaoke machine...

I'm going with Yard of Ale. I agree with Robes in regards to the busy street and the parking situation at The Bungalow.

Bungalow

The ginger votes Bungalow!

Nate Dawg said...

I'm down for either but leaning towards Bungalow...

Smithkey said...

Not playing this season but I vote Bungalow for any future season I might be playing with GoKB

MJ said...

I vote for THEE Dollhouse

Chandler said...

Bungalow is 1,500 feet away from MacDinton's. So the "parking" for Bungalow is wherever you'd normally park.

It's called walking. I've never been to NY City but I reckon people in large areas like that would call you all "pussies." ;)

Bungalow, for liquor!!

Rosey said...

Both sound good to me, but my vote is for Yard of Ale. I'll be drinking Stella straight from the pitcher if it works out.

The Todd said...

Sorry I haven't defected yet. but the tide is turning, I can already tell the WAKA season is going to blow. PMU? WTF? but once you're in an establishment like BnD, it is tough to leave. if anyone cares.. yard of ale..
HAPPY NYE2011, DPT20!!

Yard of Ale, even being a liquor person. There is no parking at the bungalow and there are still many options on Howard ave after.
