JGTSpI Scores Halfway Through the Season

Well, we’ve reached the halfway point of the JGT Spring Invitational, and things are starting to shake out. Here’s your scores. Teams in yellow would make the Invitational if the season ended today. But the season doesn’t end today. You’e still got a lot of time to score your team some points.

And next week will be a fairly regular quiz. No theme, though we may do an old fashioned 4-rounder.

French Fry Thursday Tonight

frenchfriesSeveral teams had big nights last night, as there was plenty of cammo and lots of cowboy hats (both of which earn your team points in the JGTSpI. As do bolo ties, seersuckers, and cowboy boots). Tonight’s a great chance to get a win at Industry, as we’ve had 6 different winners in the past 7 weeks. Also a great chance to drink $3 craft beers and eat terrific food. On to the Bards at 9 p.m. $3 Lagers, and a chance to put the Jesters of Tortuga in their place. French fry face-off and Name That Tune at both spots. See ya tonight!

Is Tonight’s Round Two the Greatest Round I’ve Ever Written?

frenchfriesSeveral people told me that last night. I dunno if it’s true or not, it’s been a while since I heard people laughing that hard during a round. Furthermore, this Sex, Drugs, and Rock n Roll theme has been a Giant slayer: neither the Jesters, Duane’s World, or the Jams have finished in the to 3.

Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. On to Bards at 9 p.m. $3 beers and lots of giveaways at both. Hope to see ya tonight!

Fun quiz this week. A lot of ridiculous guilty pleasure questions, and some legal questions to keep the quiz from getting too absurd. Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. $3.50 margaritas and $3.50 Mexican beers, as well as the lovely Amanda behind the bar.

On to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. $3 Gansett Lagers, and Becky and Howie workin’ the room.

And a great opportunity to earn bonus points, as tonight is double points night, and both venues are wide open. Yeah, Jesters are a pain in the ass, but they’re standings don’t count since their on double secret probation right now.  So by finishing 2nd you can earn 10 points in the JGTSpI. See ya tonight!

Crazy Music Round Tonight

frenchfries

Tonight’s music round is fairly inspired. I think it’s one of the more interesting ones I’ve ever put together. Some teams loved it last night…other teams not so much. It’s well worth a play. The topic is still international, and it’s an interesting quiz. We had a thriller at the Vous and a late comeback at the Sheep.

Action starts at Industry at 6:30. $3 beer specials and terrific food. On to the Bards at 9 p.m. $3 Lagers and always a good crowd. French fries and candy to give away. Hope to see ya tonight!

Punishment Handed Down to Jesters of Tortuga

Fred_Phelps

The Jesters of Tortuga decided yet again to do something I hate more than cheating…they formed a Super team, complete with Kenney, Garbo, and Jam Master Phil. I gave them an out before the game (give Garbo to another team) to avoid punishment, but they decided against it. And so, therefore, due to their obstinance, they will have to be punished. Harshly. And so they will not earn any points over the next five weeks. Which means that if they win at the Bards, the 2nd place team will get the 5 points, 2nd place 3, etc. So it makes the Bards and City Tap House quite attractive options if you’re looking for JGTSpI points.

A Crazy Music Round at Quizzo Tonight

Got a wild one on tap for tonight, as week 2 of the JGT Spring Invitational rolls on. Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. Black Sheep at 8. See ya tonight!
