Opens in Shoreditch. Natch.
the UK’s foremost shuffleboard experts are setting up a new permanent home in Shoreditch
Surely that's just a bunch of someone's grandparents?
Had to google it as I had no idea what it is. Not what I was expecting
No, he's just set up in Sheffield, he was inundating my community mag with pleas to be included. We thought it was basically bollocks though. That said, there is a Sherlock Holmes film where he has a game, and Holmes was neer wrong about anything.
Is there anything they can't recuperate?
bloody trust fund hipster cunts die, die and die again.
Are you allowed to go wild if you're a hipster? Express a languid ironic interest shurely.
I haven't exactly got my finger on the pulse, but I'm not convinced this is "the most exciting new nightlife trend of recent years."
What's a shuffleboard? *Looks it up*
It looks like bowls minus the excitement.
Who the fuck are these people? Is the human population in London being infiltrated and replaced with bewhiskered pipe-smoking androids constructed out of pure irony? I fear it may be the prelude to some kind of invasion.
It's a bit like air hockey...without the fun
I used to be obsessed with the shuffleboard game “shufflepuck” on pogo.com
It's in a few of the craft beer type pubs, very popular too.
If anyone wants a go on my grandad's Shove ha'penny board, give me a call.
I found this recently after clearing my parents house.
I've never played shuffleboard. Looks ok. I enjoyed shove hapenny. Neither could be as good as:
You could set up a new hipster place in Shoreditch and fleece hipsters of their cash.
Shuffleboard is actually great fun. I'm convinced it's the perfect pub game.
Fuck these hipsters thinking they've invented it, though.
There's been two pubs in Leeds with shuffleboards for years. I'm not sure when Friend of Ham opened but their Twitter account has been around since 2011. They've had a shuffleboard as long as I can remember.
Then in 2015, Brewdog opened their second bar in Leeds and called it Shuffledog, because the basement is filled with shuffleboard tables.
Keep up, Shoreditch!
I was expecting something like skateboards.
Sounds good. I vote you give it an oldskool 'authentic' pub name and call it "The Copper Fleece"
Shuffle Puck Cafe was really fun on the Amiga back in the day. You used the mouse. It could get quite aggressive.
Do you remember 3D Pong from ye olde internet dayes?
Never saw that one. I think I just about remember the actual table format arcade game called Pong, hmm.
One ridiculous thing in shuffle Puck cafe was you could change the size of your bat. Like make it as wide as the table...
Anyway this sounds a bit fun but it’s no cocktails in skips...
Apart from where he lived.
"A carefully-curated selection of craft ales"
-Is it possible these people still don't know how loathsome the general public finds them, their infantile machinations and their identikit marketing spiels? Or do they just not care because they know there's still plenty of trendy tossers out there who will give them money?
You pick or chose, you square, I curate.
I think they know which side of their artisanal small-batch gluten-free bread is buttered.
Drizzled with rosemary oil, shurely
Hipsters have gone off shuffleboard actually.
They used to like it when it was underground. Y'know, bare knuckle shuffleboard down back alleys. Offshore shuffleboard board where the rules and regulations could be broken and no holds barred matches could take place.
Now it's gone mainstream though...
As long as you hawk your curated wares from a shiny tin caravan, count me in.
Five-knuckle shuffleboard is great fun but can get a bit messy.
