Ring the bull!
Now playing, "Ring the Bull!"
This bar game was first made famous in an old English Pub by the name of “Ye olde Jerusalem” in Nottingham. Dylan found the game when we were researching other options for our newly formed dart area located in the Brewery. So we now have Ring the Bull and two games of darts. Darts has become wildly successful at the Civil Life.
I have become wildly addicted to Ring the Bull in just one day and highly recommend grabbing a pint at the Civil Life and playing.
This game involves a person (hopefully you but this person could also be other incredibly lucky people) holding a ring in their hand that is attached to a string and swinging that ring in order to catch it on the horn of the bull. Thus...wait for it... Ring the bull.
The bulls horns were a gift from our comrade in consumption~ Alex F. They were originally used as a practice set for a friend of his that was practicing his lassoing. At first, I thought, “This would be a great idea to have lassos at the bar.” Then I played several scenarios out in my overworked brain. This is what happens when you write an exorbitant check to an insurance company each and every month. And then all of a sudden you think, “Hey, maybe lassos aren’t such a good idea.”
So we’re sticking to rings and if you haven’t been down lately. It may be about time that you add some civility back into that ye olde life of yours.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
