Chicago Bubble Hockey League
Chicago Bubble Hockey League saves players from having to buy pads or learn to skate in order to enjoy their favorite icy sport. During league matches at Kirkwood Bar & Grill, players trade their hockey sticks for spin-able rods that manipulate person-shaped paddles to move forward, slap shots, and block goals, and can follow the game with $5 burger and fries specials. Similar to foosball, the goal of each match is to outscore your opponent by smashing goals past their goalie and defenders while guarding your goal from their shots. Each hockey table is covered by a protective bubble, saving players from tracking down wayward shots or having to hear the trash talk uttered between their tabletop avatars.
