Beanbags make excellent nonlethal projectiles, somewhat comfortable seating, and effective ballast for hamster hot-air balloons. Marvel at the beanbag's flexibility with today's Groupon: for $30, you get priority registration for a two-person team to a month-long bags league from Third Coast Bags (a $60 value).
The cunning crew at Third Coast Bags corrals two-person teams into thrilling league-style play at North Avenue Beach, beginning Monday, June 6. Paired-up pitchers choose any day Monday through Thursday for an hour of competition at 6:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m., enhanced by the sun and the incessant, supportive cries of seagull cheerleaders. Teams can expect to play three teams per session on a rotating schedule—like a round of speed dating, they never face the same team twice. A roster of suds-slinging establishments stand ready for sponsoring requests from tossing twosomes; Third Coast Bags staff promises to chase down any saloon that has escaped their list, in the hopes of securing their names for team T-shirts or team face tattoos. If worrisome weather lays waste to a scheduled bags session, each pelting partner will receive a free one-hour rental from Third Coast Bags.
Sun & Moon Yoga
The warm sands of North Avenue Beach make up the classroom floor of Sun & Moon Yoga, and the crashing waves of Lake Michigan serve as the soundtrack. Throughout the summer, certified yoga instructors lead students of all experience levels through Vinyasa-style yoga techniques, away from bikers, beach-goers, and running teams of David Hasselhoff impersonators. In addition to yoga classes, the studio hosts clinics, including specialty yoga classes geared toward runners and volleyball players.
