Thanksgiving Dodgeball Tournament

Stuff your face in the afternoon then bust some balls at night. Dodgeballs of course. For those with enough willpower to drag their well fed keisters off the couch after holiday grubbin’, there’ll be a whole mess of plastic ball wielding maniacs ready to get their Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn on all over Delores Park. We ain’t got snowball fights in the Bay, but this is almost as good.
