Bags / Cornhole in the Bay

Cornhole, aka dummy boards, bean bag toss, dadhole, doghouse, baggo or bags is a played by tossing little square bean bags at an angled wooden board, hoping to land the bag through the hole or at least stay on board to earn points. 

Bay Area Bocce Ball

Bocce ball was first played in ancient Rome and is derived from the Italian word boccia, to bowl. A game of bocce begins with a player throwing the little ball, commonly called a jack, to the other end of the court. Players then take turns tossing balls to get as close as possible to the jack. You don't have to know jack to play, though, it's an easy game to learn! Given its Italian heritage, one might pair bocce with wine, negronis or Peronis. 

Ping Pong and Beer Pong in SF and Beyond

Ping Pong, aka table tennis, is technically an Olympic sport, but you're more likely to practice in a bar or arcade in San Francisco if you want to pair your pong with a beverage. Some games may turn into beer pong or flip cup if it feels right!
