Hard-Play Croquet

If you've been here and played it before, you'll join up in order to satisfy your cravings until the next event comes. Not like other types of croquet.

SMAC'N House Beer Rules Croquet is even crazier than you imagine.


Mark these dates on your calendar.


Hard-Play Halloween VIII - Resurrection

This killer video presented to you by Ryan Castillo.

[09/13/17]   A lot of people are starting to ask. The dates are Friday, October 27th, and Friday, December 15th.


Friends, it's that time of the year again. Find me big cardboard boxes. The test of whether or not they'll be good for this year's Tube of Terror: can a human crawl through them. If not, they're no good.

[07/02/17]   What is everyone doing for the 4th of July? Want to play croquet here at the house?


Christmas Trivia Night is coming. Are you?


Bacon, eggs and toast on Sunday morning for Chargers football? Bloody Marys? Mimosas? Kickoff is at 10:00am as the game is in KC.


Announcement for the insiders: Hard-Play Halloween is set for FRIDAY, October 28th this year. It's never too early for you to start saving the biggest cardboard boxes you can find. If they're too small for a human to crawl through on all fours, not worth it.


Making jalapeño-infused vodka, and football season is just getting started. Coincidence? I think NOT!

Steve Poltz "I Want All My Friends To Be Happy" Live at KDHX 02/16/2016

Friends, this song is for you. We lost a wonderful part of the Hard-Play gang today, and it hurts. Patrick Huber passed away this morning unexpectedly. We'll all miss his smile and the fun that he brought over to the house every time we all got together. Rest in peace, Patrick.

Let's grill up the rest of the fish and then play some croquet on Saturday. Who's ready to go balls out?

[12/11/15]   This is the invitation to Christmas Trivia Night. If it appears for you as "Attachment Unavailable", comment here and I'll invite you individually.



Hard-Play Christmas Trivia Night is on Saturday, December 19th.


Anybody have contact information for the Lorax?


Hard-Play Halloween 6: Premiering Friday, October 30th, 2015.

Rated NC-17 for extreme laughs, drunkenness, and terror.


Let's barbecue here at the house on Saturday afternoon, tomorrow. Come over whenever. Bring grillables and/or snacks. If you're feeling extra cool, bring a bottle of Jack. It's the only thing I don't have in the bar.


Mules, dark 'n' stormies, grand autumns: the possibilities are endless. Maybe not endless, but abundant.


Next theme: Back To the Future.

At least four and a half costume categories to choose from: 1985, 1955, 2015 (the future), alternate 1985, and 1885.

Saturdays to do it: September 12th, September 19th, September 26th. Not in October because that's when it's time to get ready for Halloween.


Seats are available on this ride tomorrow. Heading east to Descanso and beyond, just for the day.


Fights tonight at the house. Conor McGregor vs Dennis Siver, and then Cowboy Cerrone is fighting Ben Henderson. McGregor and Cerrone are always exciting. Come over any time after football ends.


Turkey dinner at Hard-Play Croquet. Basted to perfection.


Deep fry a turkey on Thanksgiving? The word is that even a fool can do this right. I hope I can then. Who is around and needs a friendmily?

[11/04/14]   Does everyone know about this already? Leaving town on Friday after work.



Closing tiiiime. You don't have to go home. You CAN stay here.

Saturday: It's party time. Who can come over and work on the Tube of Terror on Friday and Saturday?

[09/27/14]   https://www.facebook.com/events/572404466224310/

Looks like it's going to be a great crowd here this evening. Borderline major rager at this point. I'll get enough fish to feed all of Sea World.
