Sing, Sip, and slap 

Wednesday, May 15 2013
Musical chairs, ping-pong, and a karaoke DJ walk into a theater together — no, it’s not the setup for a bad joke — it’s the hilarious event concept from American Tripps, Singin’ and Pingin’. A semi-regular occurrence, tonight’s Pingin’ will mix the Berlin style of group ping-pong tournaments with a karaoke dance party. Berlin-style ping-pong works like this: the whole team gathers around the table, the person in the server position serves, then moves one spot to the right. If players miss the ball, they’re out, and the rotation continues until there are only two players left, who then play for the win. It’s like musical chairs, but with a vicious ping-pong tournament vibe. But the real key to Berlin-style ping-pong is that you play with a paddle in one hand, and a beer in the other. There will be plenty of drinks available from the Z Space bar, and it’s all set to the saxophone-wielding karaoke madness of DJ Purple.
