You Can Play Boozy Shuffleboard For Free On Friday Nights At This St. Pete Spot
It's basically right out of 'Gatsby'.
Imagine that you're clutching Monopoly money in one hand and one of those colorful tiny houses in the other. You're on hour four of Game Night and about three beers into the most intense competition to hit your living room floor in months. Then, your bae drops a glass, throws a hand in the air and the whole board goes soaring. Game over? Not so fast. If you're looking for things to do in St. Pete, this shuffleboard club may revolutionize your evening competitions with free outdoor contests complete with booze and fairy lights.
Does this sound like a step-up from your coffee table Olympics? Try a whole freaking staircase.
St. Pete Shuffleboard Club is a private game club with a totally vintage throwback to the Roaring Twenties, since it was founded in 1923.
It’s the perfect place to party à la Gatsby but with a hip, modern touch, thanks to a group of young artists called the Artillery who made the location into the that it is now.
Can you say, “it’s the bee's knees?”
The best part is that every Friday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., you can grab your favorite peeps and play shuffleboard for free! Dress in style and get your cameras ready to shoot some of you and your crew getting competitive under the beautiful party lights.
Folks who feel like you can’t have a good time without booze and bites worry not! The event is BYOB and you are totally allowed to bring in your yummy eats.
Just be sure not to bring glass bottles with you onto the courts!
Instead, you’ll be golden packing a canteen of caipirinha to drink in plastic cups. Or, you know, an old-school grasshopper cocktail if you’re really trying to party like it’s 1923.
Although admission is free, there is a suggested $2 donation, which seems like a small price to pay for an outrageously fun evening.
Whether you're sure that you’re the reincarnation of a 1920s cultural icon or you just want to enjoy a different kind of Friday evening, St. Pete Shuffleboard Club is an awesome place to take your game night up a notch... or five.
