I haven't actually played a live game, only on a terrible iPhone app, but I am sincerely very excited for The Onyx Room's forthcoming Bid Whist tournaments:
Cleveland Style Bid Whist Tournament...Sponsored by The Onyx Room and Planet Beach Oro Valley...You think you are the best Bid Whist player around?
Come out and prove it! We supply the cards…You bring the fun! Bring a partner or team up with someone once you are here. Just don’t bring your C game to an A table.
WEDNESDAYS, OCTOBER 19TH— NOVEMBER 9TH, $5 per person per night. Admission includes (1) well drink.
Time is 6p to 10p with games starting promptly at 7p. CASH PRIZE.
Purchase tickets at The Onyx Room located at 106 W. Drachman, Tucson, AZ. Ticket purchases final. Official Rules provided by The Onyx Room. For more information call 520-620-6699.
This gives me nearly a month to become an expert Bid Whist player (not terribly likely), but it would be helpful if I had a partner instead of inflicting a stranger with my poor play. Let me know if you're interested. Mostly, I just like playing cards while drinking.
