Fridays can be dull — the office empties out early, things are slow and people are generally just dragging on 'til they can hit Happy Hour and start the weekend off with a buzz.
Thus, we recommend a bit of fun for those who love to take their chances playing cards: making new friends at a small, friendly poker club!
According to a tip culled by our friendly, neighborhood rock critic/lady of listings Linda Ray, the Village Inn at 6251 N. Oracle Road plays home to a number of friendly card sharks who eat lunch from 11:30 a.m. to noon, then play poker in games of the dealer's choosing 'til 3:30.
Now, I'm assuming since this is taking place at a restaurant better known for pie than it is for breeding card sharks, we'll safely assume that you won't be risking any money playing these hands — but, according to the tip we got sent in, "a good time awaits you!"
Probably not that kind of good time, but hey, who can turn down cards at lunch on a slow day?
If you're interested, give a call to 297-9515 — or just show up, order some pie and play a few hands.
