Partying 'til dawn? 7-balling your best friend? The Ultimate Pool Trickshot?! Well, we here at PUMA Social HQ want to see the evidence! We’re launching our first ever PUMA Social photo contest and are offering all you After Hours Athletes the opportunity to share those #EPIC moments with us.
Bowling; the striking game of ten pins and one massive ball is enjoyed the world over thanks to the undeniable stress-relieving qualities of hurling something with all your might at an inanimate object that makes a surprisingly rewarding noise as a result (if you get it right that is)!
But, in our vast experience of the great game of bowling, within every group of friends there always seems to be a Strike Master or two in attendance! You know, the late night sports legend who, despite sinking just as many drinks, continues to keep knocking down those pesky pins faster than a Voodoo doctor with a hatred for Barbie dolls!!
Get the low down with our Florence weekend guide!
Florence, Firenze, Florenz, Florencia, the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany. It is best known for its history and culture, Renaissance art and architecture. The city also contains a wealth of museums and art galleries, such as the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace amongst others, and this rich heritage will be visible all around as you party the night away in the Santa Croce district!
As the popular stereotypes would have it...girls like pink, guys likes blue, girls like romantic comedies, guys like action, girls like shopping, guys HATE shopping (unless for PUMA Social goodies of course), girls like bags, guys like FOOTBALL, girls takes hours to get ready, guys don’t often bother, girls smell nice, guys...not so much, girls adore Beyonce, guys like looking at Beyonce, girls like cocktails, guys like beer, girls win arguments, guys give up, girls like “feelings”, guys don’t have (m)any.*
Get the low down with our Taipei weekend guide!
Crowned “Ilha Formosa,” which means “beautiful island” by Portuguese sailors in the 16th century, Taipei is the capital city of Republic of China and the cultural centre of Taiwan. The National Palace Museum has one of the largest collections of Chinese artefacts and artworks in the world, including an immense collection of porcelain, jade, sculptures, paintings, and bronzes. Known for its night markets (the most famous of which is located in the Shilin District), Taipei provides the perfect backdrop for late night exploits for the daring After Hours Athlete in all of us!
Darts is a beautiful game and After Hours Athletes are pretty much biomechanically predisposed to succeed when playing! The game usually involves the corner of a loud bar or PUMA Social Club, incredible hand-eye co-ordination and most often, a frosty beverage in the non-throwing hand.
Get the low down with our Jakarta weekend guide!
Located in northwest Java, Jakarta is Indonesia’s largest city and also its capital with a population of just under ten million. In previous centuries, Jakarta had been under colonial rule until gaining full independence in 1942. Since then, the ‘Big Durian’ (cf. Big Apple) has become a centre for business, culture and politics, as well as being home to one or two hidden late night gems for the intrepid After Hours Athletes amongst us!!
We sent a couple of our Chief PUMA Socialites over to Jakarta to complete a little reconnaissance mission in order provide us with the inside track on this amazing city. Here’s what they discovered...
Whether you’re in an English snooker hall or an American bar under hot lights, there is no better feeling than 7-balling your fellow After Hours Athlete - the skill to clear the table without a response from your opponent requires concentration, precision and expertise, and according to the age-old pool scriptures, the ensuing consequences are probably even more enjoyable...
So, we here at PUMA Social HQ felt it only right to celebrate the late night hero that is: The 7-Ball Superstar!
