Spent a fun evening at Spin last night, Toronto’s hip ping pong club with the Fresita Canada (Chilian sparkling wine with fresh strawberries?! Yum!) crew for their A Little Lux girls night. I was lucky to be joined by two of my best gals for the eve. To recap the evening in three words: Ping Pong x Wine x Girlfriends!
HAILO graciously shuttled everyone to and from the event. Though I had downloaded the app a while ago and heard lot’s about HAILO, it was my first time actually using their cab service. Honestly, I was so impressed by the system! Not only did my cab to and from the event come pick me up within 1 minute, it’s also hassle-free! Since everything automatically passes through your credit card, there’s no printing out receipts, faulty interact machines, angry cab drivers, change, any of that stuff. A receipt from your trip gets emailed right to you within minutes of your trip. Really impressed with this system!
I was really excited to be back at Spin. I shot one of my shows there last year and have also had the opportunity to visit some of their other locations such as their first club in NYC as well as their club at the Standard Hotel in downtown LA.
Fresita welcomed my girlfriends and I with a bunch of yummy snacks (hello cheese!) and drinks. We got a bit of time to warm up before the night’s event.
During the night, they were holding a ping pong round the table tournament. I had participated in it before in NYC but had never gotten really far. Playing ping pong always brings me back to my childhood. As a kid, I played ping pong after family dinners almost every weekend at my grandma’s house. She had bought a new ping pong table in her basement for our enjoyment. Though my ping pong skills are less than acceptable, playing is always a good time!
I got a bit of practice time in at the beginning of the evening but I don’t think I’ll be taking up a career in ping pong any time soon! I was terrible at the round the table. That said, with great tunes, a little wine and some of my best gals, it was hard not to have a great time!
Thanks to everyone for having us! I’ll be back soon!!
