Events & Adventures Dallas had a blast at Poker Night! Shortly after arriving, we hung out for a bit and had a quick bite to eat before the game finally started. The event was held at Trinity Hall, and the venue had bunch of great beer on tap, as well as authentic Irish and British food like fish and chips and Sheppard’s pie. Lots of members showed up, and between all of us we had to set up a couple of tables. We had a great mix of men and women, and a lot of friendly and fun people showed up to play.
We learned very quickly who really knew how to play and who was still learning their way around the poker table. We weren’t too hard on the newbies; in fact, some of us took some time to help struggling players figure out the game. It was a great event because we had the opportunity to sit down and learn more about other members in an atmosphere that made conversation come easy. Our group had a great time talking about everything from food and drinks, to how their week went. Many of us took the opportunity to try new types of beer with the encouragement of other members who were more familiar with the unique kinds of drinks offered at the bar.
Only two women from our group of club members advanced to the championship round, but many others stuck around to play on the secondary tables just for fun, or hung out and watched others play. One of our ladies even came in third at the championship table and won a gift card!
One of the best things about Events and Adventures is that we all get the chance to experience new things in a very positive and friendly environment. In fact, most of us had no idea that Trinity Hall even had poker on Mondays! A couple of us liked it so much we’re going back again together, just as a group of new friends. We’d have never known anything about this great event if it weren’t for Events & Adventures Dallas.
