Yes. Board games. (Am I a dork? Do you think I'm a dork now? Well suck it. I like board games.) And dance parties? Come ON.
I'd previously only bothered with Clinton's as a friend-chosen beer hall. Good for a couple of pints and little else. Now, I'm much happier. The Board Game thing has swayed me. The other night, I was there with a few couples, making slightly awkward couples conversation, which could easily have become tiresome, but then, we got into some Trivial Pursuit, and all was well. The cider tasted more delicious. The awkwardness evaporated. We had something to focus on and talk about so conversation flowed more easily. It was good all around.
As for the 90s dance party thing, well ... what can I say? I love that sort of thing. They still do the Shake a Tail oldies thing on Saturdays, as far as I know, but the 90s music is new and for me, way more fun. If you don't dance, you might not be into it, but if you're pushing 30, it might be just the thing.
