Beer pong or Beirut?
Half of my friends call it beer pong, and the other half call it Beirut.
What do you call it? I want to take a vote.
Growing up on the Eastern Shore, I always thought the name of the popular college drinking game was beer pong. I went to college at the University of Maryland College Park, and most of my friends from out of state said it was beer pong.
Since I moved to Baltimore, I've heard people call it Beirut more than beer pong. (In the game, you toss ping-pong balls into plastic cups partly filled with beer).
I've had people tell me it's a Baltimore thing. But some Web sites say both names are interchangeable. What do you think?
