A professional hockey player and a professional football player walk into a ping pong bar. Although it might sound like the start of a joke, it was SPIN Boston’s grand opening last weekend.
The event took place at the Ping Pong Social Club at 30 Melcher Street in Boston’s Seaport District on Friday evening, October 24.
Newcomers to the game could also get one-on-one help from one of SPIN’s in-house ping pong coaches, eager to help guests pick up a paddle and start hitting. During breaks, guests could enjoy a wide range of dining options at several club locations.
The menu consisted of a make-your-own lobster roll station, platters of local finger foods, and SPIN’s signature “Snack Attack,” which included various candies and a wall covered in assorted flavored pretzels.
Guests could also enjoy eclectic cocktails at one of two bars or from SPIN’s own robot bartender, ADAM, who whipped up a signature drink for the night.
The drink menu consisted of aptly named cocktails like the Truly Wicked – a vodka drink mixed with a Truly Hard Seltzer – and The Lob – a tequila drink made with Cointreau.
However, the real stars of the evening were none other than the two Boston athletes who faced off in an epic ping-pong battle at the center table.
David “Pasta” Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins edged out Matthew Judon of the New England Patriots for the victory – marking the end of our lackluster attempt at a sports joke earlier in this article.
The event ended with a match between two professional table tennis players before the doors opened to the public. Those looking to “SPIN” on their next Boston outing can visit the club website for more information.
