Oh sure, it may be steaming hot outdoors, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we will be cool as a cucumber indoors! So come join us at O’Neals at 8 p.m., where you have a terrific opportunity to earn JGTSI points and enjoy ice cold margaritas.
On to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. There’s a chance of a thunderstorm tonight, so we’ll have to wait and see before we decide whether to take the party outside this week. (Obviously, if there’s a thunderstorm, we’ll want to play outside in the elements. Adds to the drama! It’s like The Notebook!) So make it happen tonight. Let’s go!
Who released the song “Year of the Cat” in 1976?
We kick it off at North Star at 7 p.m. Very winnable quiz. We move to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m. Week 4 of the JGTSI rolls on. Better get your team right…and remember, you can score some easy points on facebook until 5 p.m. today.
We’ll be celebrating our one year anniversary at the store next weekend, and we’ve got an All-Star lineup. We’ll start with 1952 American League MVP Bobby Shantz. With a name like Shibe Sports, I figured we needed to bring a member of the Philadelphia A’s in at some point. You can bring your own thing in to be signed, or we’ll have baseballs and photos available to purchase.
On Saturday, we’ve got Ray Didinger and Glen Macnow at the store at 2 p.m. to talk sports and sign copies of their book, The Ultimate Guide to Sports Movies. When they wrap up, author and history professor Bruce Kuklick will take the stage. He’ll be discussing the history of beer at the ballpark in Philadelphia, and we’ll have FREE BEER to all who attend, provided by our good friends at Ommegang.
On Sunday we’ll have our closing party at McGillin’s Old Ale House. Not only will we be unveiling our new limited edition McGillin’s shirt, but bar owner Chris Mullin will be talking a bit about the history of Philadelphia oldest bar, and we’ll discuss some of the incredible memorabilia on their walls.
RSVP for the event here. Not only do I hope you make it, but each player who attends an event earns his quizzo team 2 points in the JGTSI!
An opportunity to score some bonus points in the JGTSI this weekend. Just post a pic of yourself wearing red, white and blue (like the gentleman in the photo above) on the Facebook page by Tuesday.
There will be another opportunity to earn points next week as well…just show up for one of the events at our anniversary party at the store next weekend and you’ll earn your team 2 points. I’ll have more details in the coming week.
Hope everybody has a great holiday weekend. Gonna try to get scores up on Friday, but if not they’ll be up early next week.
Let’s face it, you’re not getting anything done tomorrow at work so might as well get the holiday started off on the right foot with a little quizzo tonight. We kick it off at Industry at 6:30. A great opportunity for a win, and terrific food, great beer specials, and excellent service to boot.
On to Bards at 9 p.m. You know the deal. It’s anybody’s ballgame, with all of the top teams playing last night, so if you and your crew can get it together you could be rewarded with a big win. Expect some New England questions, as I just spent 5 hellish days driving nonstop through there with a toddler.
Action begins at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. Solid competition, but a little slow lately so now’s the time to sneak in and get your team a few points. On to Founding Fathers at 8:30. We’re always rockin’ and rollin’ there. Competition is fierce, but there is of course the coveted 7th place prize. I’ve spent the past few days up North, so I’d expect tonight’s quiz to have a bit of a New England flavor. See ya tonight!
Quizzo at O’Neals is cancelled tonight for the soccer match, so we start at the Tap House at 10:15 p.m. The Sandman will host, and it’s Howie’s last quiz. So bummed I’m not gonna be there. He’s one of my favorite bar guys I’ve ever worked with. $100 gift cert for winners, $50 for 2nd. Be sure to bring your ace squad. Hope you can make it.
The pizza shop in the Simpson’s, Zesty’s, is based on an actual restaurant in what Massachusetts town? (a town that I am currently visiting for a wedding.)
The Sandman will be hosting quizzo tonight, as I am in New England for a wedding. Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. Great opportunity to get a win and score some JGTSI points. On to Sidecar at 9:30. Always a good time. Hope you can make it out tonight!
Programming note: There will be no quiz at O’Neals this week, as instead they are showing the Women’s World Cup match.
Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Wild card round is “Colorful Names”. $3 craft beers, delicious burgers, great service. You know the drill. Also, a great opportunity to score some JGTSI points.
Also at the Bards. A packed house, but no heavily favored teams, so it’s anyone’s ballgame. Action starts at 9:15. Hope to see you tonight!
Action starts at the Rendezvous at 6:15. Been quiet thus far this month. A great opportunity to get a win, score some JGTSI points, and drink some $2.25 beers.
On to Founding Fathers at 8:30 p.m., home of the 7th place prize. Always a blast. Hope to see ya tonight!
Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. $100 to any team that can top 110 points. On to Tap House at 10:15 p.m. Get some great beers and great pizza. Hope to see ya tonight!
