Beer pong probably won’t qualify as an Olympic sport anytime soon, but you wouldn’t know it by visiting local bars, where it ranks somewhere between video golf and video poker as our drinking game of choice. Our venue of choice is Quinn’s Irish Pub, which offers a laidback atmosphere (read: competitive players need not apply) and ample opportunity to get a game in (six tables are available). Purchase a pitcher of beer ($10 domestic, $15 imports) and the game is free, with bartenders providing the cups, ping-pong balls and seltzer water to clean your balls. Now that’s service.

And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
