Relive middle school recess

Go back in time to middle school with City of Play's dodgeball night. But it's even better than recess because they've ditched those stinging rubber playground balls for soft foam dodgeballs. Also better than middle school: You can play if you want or just hang out on the sidelines with a drink.

Relieve some stress by playing dodgeball with other grownups

Relieve some stress by playing Monday-night dodgeball with other grownups (meaning people 18 and older). The balls are made of soft foam, not hard rubber, so you don't have to worry about getting smacked (too hard) in the head. Still dealing with childhood gym-class trauma? You can also hang out, drink and just watch.
