Play: Blazing Paddles at Game On

Being a city girl, I am always looking for something fun and new to do with my weekends. Going to the same South End joint can certainly get old. I like feeling the excitement of exploring new territory and having the city feel fresh and new again. This past weekend I was invited to the opening of Patrick Lyons' new venture Blazing Paddles at Game On

The decor was very cool and relaxing.The downstairs lounge features an over-sized square bar that encourages diner-player interaction and even holds private luxury boxes. It was quite the experience and no pun intended, buckets of fun. "Runners" are on hand to retrieve the fly-away balls but also leave you with replenished baskets. Tables can be rented for half hour or hour increments, from thirty minutes to two hours.

"We will have a professional player on staff at all times, for either ping pong aficionados or amateurs, who will enjoy a night of fun with great pointers on how to improve their game," says Lyons. "Ping pong cuts across every demographic and is enjoyable for everyone."  

There is quite a cocktail list including some amazing margaritas that will surely quench your thirst after a long match. If you're hungry, order up some quick bites or a burger. There is something on the menu for everyone. I will definitely be heading back for another game and a few more laughs!
