Due to the restrictions made to slow the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve, expect all public foos events in the Twin Cities (e.g. tournaments and pick-up games at Mortimer's, Jimmy's Pro Billiards) to be on hiatus until further notice. This currently includes the April MN Monthly, but perhaps we'll be able to delay it for a few weeks. The timeline for return would be based on the best advice and evidence of our public health officials, local elected representatives and the small businesses that both support and rely on us.
My thoughts are with Jimmy's, Mort's, their staff, and the rest of the service industry as we weather this storm as a community. We look forward to supporting them soon.
Until then, time to defer to the MN Dept of Health, CDC, and the advice of our best health experts and practice some physical distancing, with foosball and otherwise.
This is a great time to stay home, remove the laundry off the ol' practice table, and burn some anxiety with 2-bar shots. If all your household doesn't know how to play yet, now's the time to teach! Netflix is losing its luster on day 3.
Note, I said physical distancing....but it can also be a time for social solidarity. I'll try to up the content on these forums for those that aren't on facebook. I encourage others to provide content as well, shoot the breeze foosball wise, post pics and give tips.
Hoping this update finds you all well,
