Chasing Aces at Cask 82
My Wednesday nights for the past several months have been dedicated to one thing, Chase the Ace. For anyone who doesn’t know what that is, you purchase a $10 ticket from the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Club; it gets added into a draw. If your card is drawn you automatically win the “pot” for that night and get a chance to “Chase the Ace”. If you choose to try your luck at picking a card, you could be the lucky winner of their Jackpot, which is now over $29,000.
My partner in crime for this event and I always split our tickets 50/50. We won once back in May when the take home was only $210. A far cry from the $1800 that went last night!
Winning is great, but even if your number isn’t drawn the money goes to a good cause. This group of guys does a lot in our community and I have enjoyed myself supporting their fundraiser.

Now I need to give a shout out to Cask 82. This is where the event is held every Wednesday. In the several months I have been going I have had some of the best service in Moose Jaw. The ladies working are always friendly and even when they have a packed and crowded bar, I’ve never had to wait very long for a drink or anything else I might need.
A specially selected menu different from the bar and grill above is available. I highly recommend the Vegas Fries and the Mediterranean Flat Bread. They also serve craft beer and cocktails and have a great wine list.
Now they are only open Wednesday to Saturday, so keep that in mind if you are planning to go. There is also a 24+ age limit. Friday and Saturdays are perfect to check out Cask 82 as live music takes the stage at 9 pm.
We are down to the last 2 weeks of Chase the Ace, for this pot anyways. Some lucky person will walk away with a nice chunk of cash and the rest of us will relish in the suspense of months of hoping to hear our numbers read out.
Look for Chase the Ace to start its second round on Wednesday, November 14th with a beginning Jackpot of $5000. Good luck to all my fellow ticket buyers in the coming weeks!
See you around,
