Bocce's an Italian yard game with a history going all the way back to the Roman Empire. Bocce has survived the ages because it's fun, simple, and doesn't contain copious amounts of lead like sapa*.

I put together semi-regular bocce games. If any of y'all want to join us this Sunday evening, then here's what ya need...
Date: Sunday, 20 July 2008
Time: 1900 -2100
Location: The bocce court next to Vickery's in the Glenwood Park development (933 Garrett Str. SE, Atlanta, GA)



*Romans put sapa in EVERYTHING, and sapa was reduced in kettles of white lead 'cuz, as Pliny the Elder noted, nothin' gives flava like LEAD!

Heh, the Romans used to sweeten wine with a lead solution. Some blame the fall of the Roman empire to lead-induced madness. My explain why they adopted Christianity... "Jesus is Lead!"
