Bing's Boba Tea at 2040 W. Orange Grove Road is throwing a summer celebration this Saturday with samples of boba tea, real tea and a chance to play Go, a board game that originated in ancient China.
What? You haven't been to Bing's Boba Tea yet? The little store next to Lee Lee Oriental Supermart serves what I think might be the largest selection of boba-related drinks in town, and the people who run it are super nice. They even have cool things like candy and coffee-jelly to add to your otherwise tapioca-pearl-laden beverages.
If you're on Facebook you can pop over here for more information. If not, just show up between 3 and 8 p.m., Saturday, July 21. Admission is free.
(As a side note to Tucson's boba-tea-producing community: Has anyone added a drink called the Boba Fett to their menu yet? The nerd appeal of such a product boggles the mind. That is all.)
