Everything You Know Is Pong Grandmaster Challenge to Benefit 826 National

Come to 190 Capp Street in San Francisco's Mission District on December 14 at 7:30 PM to watch a ping-pong grandmaster take on celebrities such as author Dave Eggers, musician Jerry Harrison (of the Talking Heads and Modern Lovers), restauranteur Anthony Myint - and maybe even you!

The event, a benefit for 826 National, is in celebration of the new book "Everything You Know Is Pong: How Mighty Table Tennis Shapes Our World," in which authors Roger Bennett and Eli Horowitz chronicle the sport's massive popularity worldwide. Bennett and Horowitz will be on hand to present a slideshow and give a reading.

There's a suggested donation of $10 - $20 at the door, and, again, all proceeds go to 826 National. Here's the Facebook event page - feel free to invite friends:

Thanks for reading and hope to see you there, paddle at the ready.
