49 days.  49 days until my life makes sense again!

If you know me at all, I'm a football fanatic.  Boise State. Ohio State. The Cleveland Browns.  Almost all of my Saturdays and Sundays are planned from the first weekend of September through...well, the Browns never go to the playoffs, so the end of the regular season!

When it comes to NFL, my favorite place in the Treasure Valley to catch a game is (shocker) Old Chicago Downtown. That's partially because I get credit on the World Beer Tour for four of the beers I drink while watching my team lose.  It's also partially because the crew there does a really great job of creating a fun game day atmosphere! They'll cover up the pool table and have a paper football contest between the day's early game and afternoon game. I have no coordination and absolutely stink at it every single time my name gets called, but it's still a lot of fun.

That said, I may be good at one of the games they're hosting leading up to the regular season kickoff! Next Thursday, OC's hosting one of Bud Light's Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournaments! Put that in your calendar. July 27th, 6:30-9 p.m. Old Chicago Downtown.


Get yourself in to the tournament and if you win, you earn a spot in the finals at Silly Birch on August 23rd where there's some huge prizes on the line!  We're talking $1,000, a championship belt/bragging rights and an all-expenses paid trip to Seattle to watch the Seahawks home opener against the 49ers on September 17th!

Can't make it to OC next week? They're not the only bar in the Treasure Valley hosting qualifying tournaments.  Get yourself in for a chance to compete in the finals at these other locations!
