Come Out & Play 2010 in San Francisco
Earn rewards of candy as you vent stress with a wiffleball bat!
When: Sunday Oct 24 at 12-2 PM
Pigeon Piñatas and their cronies are taking over the city and it's your responsibility to rid our fair city of this nuisance. Team up with your friends and grab some wiffleball bats to pummel the piñatas to oblivion. You'll be bestowed with power-ups, self-satisfaction and sweet, sweet candy. We regret that no actual pigeons will be harmed in this game, but plenty of piñatas will be massacred!
