Beer Pong Invades CVS Stores

So I was wandering around a CVS Pharmacy here in Phoenix yesterday, when I managed to find something interesting. I was checking out the liquor section (of course) and saw some plastic cups and ping pong balls.

My first thought was, Beer Pong! And then I thought how convient it was to put these items near the beer. I have never seen a store, other than liquor stores, put items like this near the alcohol.

What I found to be even more interesting, was the fact that the price tag said table Ping Pong balls/beer pong right on it. Check out the pic:

So I guess drinking games are finally becoming recognized as real games, lol. Whats next? I am guessing either the Jenga price tag will say Jenga/Drinking Jenga or the clear plastic cups will say Cups/Flip Cup.

Oh wait, even better, the Twister game will say Twister/Drunk Naked Twister in the toys section. Just wait until little Jimmy see’s that. Mommy Mommy! I want this game!

I think it would be awesome if more price tags had more than one description. Cheap Tequila could say Tequila/What Did I do Lastnight?, or perhaps the condoms could say Latex Condoms/Ackward Morning.

    I’ve seen beer pong kits sold in convenience stores near college campuses but they usually have some sort of disclaimer like, “this is a novelty item and should played using water”. I’ve never seen it marketed using the term “beer” though, seems a bit dangerous for them from a public relations standpoint. If they get labeled as a promoter of binge drinking, it’s not gonna give them a lot of credibility…except maybe with the beer pong advocates…which I happen to be:)

    Maybe I’ll give CVS a call and try to sell them my Ultimate Beer Pong Mat. Maybe I can get a display rack next to the Beer Pong/ Ping Pong Balls. Check out my fully customizable Beer Pong Mats @ MySpace.com/UBPM.

    Beer Pong is definitely becoming more recognized in general. There are more tournaments popping up every month and it is without a doubt the most popular drinking game ever. It’s only a matter of time..
