Skee-Ball

It’s how we roll

Like Bowling for Arthritics

Form, focus, precision…none of these will help you win at Skee-Ball, and anyone who tells you differently is a big fat liar. But, it’s an awful lot of fun.

The chimera of bar sports

Is it bowling? Is it darts? Is it cornhole? This game is the lovechild of all of your favorite games, with the added bonus of something called a “ball-hop.”

Skee-Ball Etiquette

This ain’t softball

Furl your brow and roll each ball up the alley with finesse to score points. Pitching it like Felix Hernandez won’t help you at all, and you’re likely to injure your rotator cuff. The Big Lebowski method works better.

I had been stopping by Hillside occasionally for a while, always enjoying myself. I am a beer and a shot kind of guy and they have plenty of both there. Service was always good and there was a good mix of friendly regulars and people from the neighborhood, like myself.  Chill atmosphere and free peanuts didn't hurt either.

What brought my rating up to 5 stars was their trivia night. My friends and I had been looking for a trivia night on the Hill that worked with our schedule. Hillside has one the first Wednesday of every month. We tried it a few times and LOVED it!  The questions were a good mix of easy and challenging. There were 3 rounds. Some specific categories and some random. The winning team received the cash pot from the entry fees. What we really liked was that the team that came in last won a free pitcher of Olympia beer. We almost considered bombing just to get the free beer. 🙂

The host is entertaining and fun. We have gone twice now and will definitely be back! Even if you are not into trivia, Hillside is a great place to have some cocktails with good friends and maybe even make a few new ones.
