Have a Block Party: Play Kubb
Did you know Eau Claire is officially the Kubb Capital of North America? Or that the U.S. National Kubb Championship takes place right here? If you’re like me and you’ve never learned to play this quirky Nordic game that rhymes with “tube,” this summer is the perfect time to become a true Eau Clairian. All you need is a kubb set (available for purchase at The Local Store and elsewhere) and a few friends. The game can take anywhere from 15 minutes to hours. Be sure to practice safe social distancing and wear masks when around people you aren’t quarantining with.
