Because just sitting at a bar is kinda boring
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.

Ping Pong and Beer Pong in Boise
Ping Pong, aka table tennis, is technically an Olympic sport, but you're more likely to practice in a bar or arcade in Boise if you want to pair your pong with a beverage. Some games may turn into beer pong or flip cup if it feels right!
Foosball, aka table soccer takes strong wrists and the attention span/peripheral vision to follow a very fast ball flying through many metal legs. Find foosball tournaments and venues with a table for your next game of foos in Boise.
Some lucky souls are born with serious pipes. Some of us think we have serious pipes after a few cocktails. Whatever your situation, karaoke is a fun group outing or spiritual endeavor to express yourself in song. Karaoke comes in the form of pop-up karaoke nights, full on karaoke bars, or as an accessory to a restaurant. Shy performers may prefer a private karaoke room.
