Tonight: One of the Best Music Rounds Ever

frenchfries

A terrific music round tonight. You will not want to miss it. Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Still one of your best spots to score a win if you’re trying to score points in the JGTAI. Plus terrific food, drinks, and service, and $3 craft beer during quizzo. If you haven’t played here before, you should try to make it happen tonight. It’s gonna be a very fun quiz.

On to the Bards at 9 p.m. Ever since the Jesters have started playing more often on Wednesdays, things have been wide open at the Bards. Which has been really nice. $3 lagers. Let’s do the damn thing.

All New Quiz Tonight

Action starts at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. You know what the deal is. Great competition, great service, and amazing prices on beer.

On to the Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. Looking like Must Love Pogs will be bringing their A-team. Can Duane’s World hold them off? Or can your team be the next Freebola, the team that shocked the world last week with a win over Duane’s World? We’ll find out tonight.

JGTSI Scores After 6 Weeks

autumninvite

Here are our scores. With four weeks left in the regular season, things are starting to get interesting. Teams in yellow are eligible for a bonus prize, teams in orange would earn an invite, teams in red have received golden tickets, and teams in blue better get their acts together. Best chances to get a win? Probably North Star, O’Neals, and Industry. And remember, there are two quizzes each week (one on Monday-Tuesday, another on Wednesday-Thursday), so you can double your chances of earning points if you need them.

There is also a new bonus question on the Facebook page. Go there to earn some easy points.

 

Hope to see ya this week!

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

Golden-Ticket-JN2013_1630

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

Week 6 of the JGTAI Kicks Off Tonight; Colors Week

colors

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!
