Cornhole Makes Front Page of Wall St. Journal

From today's WSJ:

The game, best known as cornhole but also called Bags or Baggo, has become a craze in recent years at bars, tailgate parties and church picnics in the Midwest. It's particularly popular in Cincinnati, where folks say it originiated more than 50 years ago as a backyard diversion, and has more recently grown popular in Chicago, Indianapolis, and Milwaukee.

Know a bar/restaurant with a cornhole setup? Leave it in the comments.

JD Legend's in Franklin. If you ever come up there drop me a line. I'll meet you and buy you a beer. They have a party deck in the summer (it's actually a bowling alley by day, cool happening bar by night.)

That's an offer I can't refuse, Godfather.

I'll make it up there one of these days. I almost went up this weekend for the body parts exhibit at Easton Mkt, but it turns out it was a scientific thing. I thought it was a porn convention.
