Friday night I was feelin' right and went out with some friends to a bar near the I.P. Pavlova stop on Metro C line. It was a small/long bar cozy and buzzing with patrons, but that wasn't the cool part. There was a gigantic tree trunk on which a game was played. The game was this: Each player starts with a nail and hammers it in to the tree trunk to the same hight, then you each take turns trying to hit your nail deeper into the wood with the SHARP end of the hammer (not the blunt). Whoever gets their nail all the way into the wood first wins...the last one to get their's all the way buys the next round of drinks. It was really fun and we ended up playing three or four times (I lost twice)
I am not sure of the actual name of the bar but we call it "the Nail Bar" because of that game. it is a lot trickier hitting the head of a nail with the pick end rather than the blunt, harder than you would think.
