Weekends were made for the Pickled Onion
By Ty Hughes
Woke up one day in June to a beautiful Saturday – a great day to pay a visit to my friends at the Pickled Onion. They’d all be there today for Pickled Onion’s regular Saturday afternoon dart shoot.
Looking forward to my big date with a few hundred other dart players at the EQC soon, I wanted to be ready.
When I showed up at 3pm, Sean, the bar’s owner, was working the bar, and tending to a close-knit group huddled around the TV, rooting on the horses at the Belmont Stakes.
They had a little wager going, and rooted for one horse or another. Besides them, the bar was empty and the boards weren’t even powered up yet.
I quietly flipped one on and started warming up. It wasn’t long before the players began walking in the door.
Rick and Mark, Chris, even Kenny and Burt from the Mustard Seed came out to practice.
Soon, all the boards came alive as the room filled with dart shooters.
Chris said they usually get around 12 teams, but they start a bit later than the published 4pm start time. Who knew?
Friday night Parity Draw shoots are also popular at the Pickled Onion, featuring a $500 Added at 8pm.
Pickled Onion is home to many, and it’s no wonder why, this is where good friends meet, cut loose, and focus on honing their dart and social skills.
