When Marc McFaul took over the Canton Arts and Entertainment space last year, people wondered what hed do with all the room upstairs. The answer? Cornhole.
Settlers got the idea for cornhole from American Indians, who used to throw beanbags at a large board with holes cut into it -- though the original beanbags were dried pig bladders filled with real beans. These days, the beanbags are (thankfully) made of canvas, but little else has changed about the game.
The Baltimore Sports and Social League uses the space for a Thursday cornhole league (there's also Skee-Ball on Wednesdays). Turnout averages at least 75 people. Dark Horse features drink specials for league members, including $2 domestics and $6 pitchers.
