Monthly Board Games @ The Beer Bistro

It's that time again! Time to get our Board Game on!

This month we'll be holding the Meetup at The Beer Cellar at The Beer Bistro.

The Beer Cellar is the spacious lower level event space which has plenty of room for us to eat, drink, be merry and beat the crap out of each other in dominoes. We'll bring the usual assortment of games including Taboo, Fact or Crap, Uno and Jenga as well as playing cards for those who want to play Spades or Bidwhist.  Feel free to bring along your favorite games as well.  The more the merrier.

For those of you who are new to our little social group, the Board Games meetup is a great event for first timers, so come on out and meet some new folks and have fun with us!

Located in the West Loop, the Beer Bistro is easy to get to via public transportation.  Street parking is available and while not exactly easy it's not terribly difficult most of the time although some times it's tougher to find a spot than others.

More info on the venue is available at their web site at www.thebeerbistro.com


The Beer Bistro is craft beer nirvana with an ever rotating selection of beers on tap and more exotic bottled brews than you can shake a stick at. Don't believe me? I don't blame you. Check this out

  • Chardae J.

    This will be my first meet up, but I had to chime in b/c I love Mafia! Used to play in college and I had a few game nights at my apt where we played Mafia. If we play, it should be with townspeople, nurses, sheriff...
