Vinoteca Tuesday Bar Bocce Division
Spring 2014 Season starts this week!
At last! We get to start the spring season. Now that we got all that snow out of the way, we are starting the season with back-to-back bocce. The regularly scheduled Week 2 games will be played on Tuesday 4/1 and the make-up games from Week 1 will be played on Wednesday 4/2. Then we are back to our regularly scheduled program.
Bar Sponsor and Specials
During game nights, we receive food and drink specials at the back patio bar of Vinoteca Wine Bar & Bistro. League members will enjoy burgers, dogs, grilled sandwiches and appetizer specials from the back bar until 7PM, PLUS refreshing $4 pints of Peroni!
Specialty Burgers: $8 / $9
Portobello Burger: $6 / $7
Specialty Hot Dogs: $6 / $7
(The first price is the happy hour price)
The weekly Peroni Contest continues this season! For each pint you drink, you’ll receive a ticket to write your team name on and place in the bocce jar. Every week we’ll announce a winner for a Vinoteca gift certificate, so drink up!
New this season: The Peroni Ticket Contest Grand Prize is now open to our league! Your team can compete for the division's GRAND PRIZE at the end of the season. The team that drinks the most Peroni out of the divisions will win a limo bus trip to somewhere fabulous. Details coming soon…
Things to Know on Game Nights
Each night, make sure to check in with a Black Shirt (either Andrea or Rhonda) and let us know when you have two players present. Games will be played to 14 points or called by a Black Shirt 45 minutes after your designated start time to ensure all teams get equitable playing time. There is no time buffer so we need you on the court once you have two players in order to get the game started. We want to keep on schedule as a courtesy to all players and will give you a heads-up when time is running out.
When you are done with your game report your score to a Black Shirt, and of course continue to enjoy the bocce specials at the bar. In the event of a cancelation, we'll post the news on the Facebook page as well as send out an email before 4 p.m.. Make-up games will most likely take place on Wednesday nights. Check out our rules for more details. Standings and pictures will be updated a few days after your games are done. Please be sure to observe all bar rules on game nights.
Feel free to contact your league managers, Andrea & Rhonda, with any questions. And become the mayor of DC Bocce @ Vinoteca by checking in on Foursquare when you arrive for your match.
