Hey all,

Air Hockey NYC’s second-ever match will take place on Monday, May 5th at 8PM at Manitoba’s. Since it’ll be Cinco De Mayo, we’ll be celebrating with chips, salsa, tequila, and cervezas. We had a great crowd last time, and are looking forward to another exciting night of air hockey fun and amazement.


Air Hockey NYC Inaugural Match a Success!

Hey all,

So, last Monday, Air Hockey NYC had its first match, which turned out even better than I thought it would. 12 people showed up for the event, and we played many exciting, fast-paced games of air hockey. Some elected to play with a single puck, while others decided to give multi-puck play a go. We found Manitoba’s to be a comfortable and welcoming environment, and very conducive to air hockey excellence. It was a good time for all involved, and I thank everybody for coming out.

Now, some orders of business to attend to :

1) It was suggested that we meet twice a month instead of once a month. I’m totally open to this idea. What do you all think? Would you be available to play air hockey twice a month?

2) Some proposed that we meet on a day other than Monday. I’m not particularly attached to Mondays, but I picked that day because I figured the bar would be empty and they wouldn’t mind us taking over their game room. I think that Tuesday or Wednesday would also work. What do you guys think?

3) I’m thinking of making t-shirts. If I did make them, I’d be selling them at cost, as I’m not interested in turning a profit or anything like that. If I made t-shirts, would you buy one?

And, finally, I’ll post a few pics from the match. Enjoy!
