It may not officially be summer yet, but Memorial Day Weekend kicks off Summer Fridays, evenings on patios and all the outdoor activities we can cram into every weekend, one at a time. Chicago Sport and Social Club is here to help with one more reason to gather your friends and get outside this summer.
It’s the first time Chicago Sport & Social Club will host this event, which they’re calling the 6-Pack Beach Field Day tournament. If you’ve ever wondered when you’d be able to pull out a baseball bat for the classic college game of Dizzy Bat again, this is it. The winner of the various competitive events during the day takes home $250 in cash as well as Lollapalooza tickets.
But even if you don’t take home a prize, you’ve spent a day with your friends on the beach, listening to DJs spinning 90s jams – and soaking up some of much needed Vitamin D.
We’re pretty proud of our work-hard-play-hard mentality here in Chicago, proven by the fact that we can “brunch so hard” pretty much weekend after weekend for the duration of the summer. But I’m always looking for ways to also incorporate some kind of activity to my weekend relaxation plans so that I don’t end up sitting and sipping on mimosas and rosé only.
And Summer fun with Chicago Sport & Social Club doesn’t stop with 6 Pack. Volleywood July 15, the festival that’s part volleyball tournament on North Avenue Beach and part electronic beach party – which in years past featured members of the Backstreet Boys – is another reason to spend a day on the beach.
And if you’re more interested in the “social” part of the group’s name, the Summer Rooftop Day Party June 17 may be more your speed. You’ll enjoy the “play hard” to counter all of the “work hard” at Whiskey Business in Bucktown with a three-hour unlimited drink package – which you’ll of course enjoy responsibly – all for $45.
