French Fry Thursday, Jersey Style

frenchfries

Well, the Jersey quiz continues to be an intriguing one, as several big name teams have gone down in flames in the past week. So it’s anybodies ballgame tonight. And at Industry, it’s double points night. A great opportunity to get yourself high up on the scoreboard, as we’ll be offering double points for the first, second, and third place finishers. There will also be $3 craft beers and $4 Jim Beam. And French Fries given away. And candy to give away. A tough deal to beat.

On to the Bards at 9 p.m. There will be no Jesters tonight, so it’s anybody’s ballgame. See ya tonight!

Jersey Quiz Tonight

Interesting quiz. Tough impossible round. One team blew a 10 point lead in the last round at O’Neals and the Jesters improbably blew a 2-point lead and lost by 13 at City Tap House. So it’ll be interesting to see how the quiz plays tonight.

We start at the Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. Always a great deal, always great service, and things have been a little quieter lately so you should call and make a reservation. 215-985-1163.

On to the Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. And I’ve got some bad news to share: no mas Eileen. After a decade, she’s moving on from the Sheep. We’ll try to do our best without her. Gonna be pretty weird…she and I have been teammates since the days of Doc Watson’s. (She also served Tuesdays at O’Neals before moving to the Black Sheep.) I’ve always enjoyed working with her. Not gonna be the same without her there. The quiz must go on, though with heavy hearts.

A quik ntoe about THursdays quiz: the quizzo at Industry will be a double points quiz in the JGTAI, meaning the winning team will get 10 points.

 

Quizzo Tonight

Action starts tonight at O’Neals at 8 p.m. $50 gift certificate to the winners and $3.50 Mexican beers. ON to Tap House at 10:15 p.m. My slew foot is much better, and I’m ready to get back in the game. This Jersey quiz is gonna be interesting. SEe ya tonight!

History of Eagles Jerseys and Eagle Watch Party on Monday Night

eaglesjerseys

There is no quizzo on Monday night. The Eagles game will be on and everyone in Philly will be watching it, no matter how distraught they are about Shady McCoy’s tips at burger joints. But just because we called off quizzo for the night doesn’t mean we called off the fun. We’ve got a really cool event going down before the quiz, as Peter Capolino, the former owner of Mitchell and Ness, is going to show us various uniforms the Eagles have worn through the years. We did one of these in August with Phillies jerseys and it was awesome. ¬†So we’re extremely excited to have Peter back to talk Birds.

After the talk, we’re going to head over to Field House to watch the game on their big screen TV and do a Chinese auction, where we’ll be giving away shirts and other prizes when the Eagles score. We did it for the WOrld Cup and had a lot of fun, and it will be similar for the Birds game. That will kick off at 8 p.m. So let’s get together on Monday night, even when we’re not answering questions, and watch the Birds. Hope to see ya then!

Sandman to Host Tonight


The Sandman is gonna fill in for me tonight. As some of you have noticed the past few nights, I’ve been shuffling around rather slowly. I have a condition the professionals call Ole Slew Foot, which has made walking painful. Anyways, I’m gonna stay off my feet tonight and the Sandman will fill in. Meaning no French Fry face-off, but there will still be JGTAI points on the line. So get your butts to the Industry at 6:30 p.m. and the Bards at 9 p.m. The Sandman does a good job. You’ll dig it. And hopefully my enormous Hulk Foot will reduce in size in time for next week.

Tonight We’re Gonna Party Like It’s 1989!
