Tuesday is Foosday

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Tuesday, the most overlooked day of the week, has finally made a name for itself thanks in part to the latest trend in retro pastimes, Foosball.

You might remember Foosball from such events as:

~ That time you misguidedly joined a fraternity (or)
~ The Boston pub-crawl you participated in around the millennium (or)
~ Being nine.

But whatever your fondest memories of this beloved table soccer, you can relive them every Tuesday, for free at the Cha Cha Lounge in Silverlake. CCL (a punk-polynesian parlor, rife with south-of-the-border chic and hip local dignitaries) has become ground zero for all things Foos.

For the last few months, makeshift leagues have been forming there, and some serious rivalries have been imagined established.

Team Fooze, brainchild of the La-La Metal Collective, is one of these leagues. They’re a friendly, inventive bunch and if you ask nicely, they’ll probably let you join.

Spirited co-captains Leslie J. Landis and Brooke Z. Doyle are firm believers in enthusiasm going a long way. If you’re a ringer, all the better, but the majority of the congregation are not what you would consider gifted, in the Foosballian arts.
