The Hole Shebang


It goes by many names, including hillbilly horseshoes and baggo, but around here it's best known as Cornhole. Now Jim Mullen, the owner of Mullen's, a Lakewood bar, has assembled an eight-team league to play cornhole in his parking lot every Wednesday for the next month. The rules are simple: Two-person teams try to toss bean bags into six-inch holes from 27 feet away. If a bag lands in the field of play, it's worth one point; if it goes through the hole, it scores three. The first team to reach 21 wins. "Everyone I know owns a cornhole board," says Mullen. "It's more of a drinking, hanging-out-with-friends kinda game."
Wednesdays, 6 p.m. Starts: Aug. 16. Continues through Sept. 20
