Golden Ticket at O’Neals; Beer Stein Challenge at Tap House


I’ve got one more golden ticket to give away to the JGTAI before wild card week (congrats to Boo-urns, who won the first ticket on Thursday at Industry). That ticket will be given away tonight at O’Neals. Action starts at 8 p.m., and it’s been wide open lately, so anybody could get that coveted ticket (the JGTAI will be held on November 23rd). $3.50 Mexican beers and margaritas.

ON to Tap House at 10:15 p.m. In addition to the regular frivolity, we’ve added Feats of Strength. The past few weeks, we’ve seen people hold up kegs of beer as long as they could. This week, it will be a beer stein holding competition. Winning team gets a $25 gift certificate. (Even better, that money has been taken out of Jesters of Tortuga’s winnings! You will be sticking it to the man!)

Question of the Week


This groups two biggest hits were “Little Green Bag” and “Paloma Blanca” (or “white dove”). Who were they?

Week 6 of the JGTAI Kicks Off Tonight; Colors Week


No, not an entire week dedicated to the Ice-T classic, Colors. (Sadly, because that would be kind of awesome.) It’s a week dedicated to the colors that make our world so, uh, colorful. Whatever. Just play. It will be fun.

Action starts tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30. One Golden Ticket being given away this week (an automatic invite to the Invitatonal.) That will be at O’Neals on Tuesday. See ya tonight!
