BABY UPDATE: Still no friggin’ baby. This is getting ridiculous. Come on, baby! Let’s get this party started!
QUIZZO UPDATE: On as scheduled tonight. O’Neals at 8 p.m. $5 burritos and quesadillas and $50 gift cert for the winners. On to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. $100 gift cert for the winners, and new can specials every week. See ya tonight!
After a week off due to the Pilgrims and the Wampanoags, we are back in action this week with a pretty interesting quiz. Action starts at 6:30ish at Industry. We’ve got Name That Tune, French Fries to give away, and always a great craft beer special. On to the Bards at 9 p.m. $3 Lagers, French Fry Faceoff, and Name That Tune. See ya tonight!
We kick it off at the Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. $3 Penn Pilsner Pints and $2 PBR and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at least mildly intrigued by the Cuervo Cinnamon Tequila they’re selling for $3 a shot.
On to the Black Sheep at 8 p.m. Different specials each week. See ya tonight!
We kick it off tonight at the North Star at 7 p.m. $3 Kenzingers and half off hummus. On to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m. Dollar off bitter beers. See ya tonight!
…then I’ve got good news. I recently made a small investment in a clothing store called Pro League Authentics, located on 13th Street, between Walnut and Sansom. I’m pretty excited about the opportunity: I’m teaming up with my buddy Brian who runs Phillies Nation and several of his friends, and we’re kicking things off in the ultimate trial by fire…we’re taking over the store on Black Friday. Yeah, it’s going to be complete madness, and there is a decent chance of a train wreck. But since train wrecks are more fun for you, the customer, why not stop by?
Ultimately, we want to build a sports shop that is unlike anything seen in the city. We’ve got some pretty exciting ideas that I will be bombarding you with over the coming months. But in the meantime, our Black Friday sale will include free Phillies stickers, and $50 will get you a $60 gift card, and $100 will get you a $125 gift card. And yeah, I’ll be around for at least part of the day. So come on by and hang out and check out some cool Phillies gear. See ya there!
Yes, we will have our regularly scheduled programming tonight. We start at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. $3 Corona Lights, and $2 Coors Extra Gold Cans. On to Black Sheep at 8 p.m. A couple of rounds (but not all) inspired by Thanksgiving. See ya tonight!
Quizzo tonight. O’Neals at 8 p.m. City Tap House at 10:30. Great beer specials at both spots. And a few (though not all) questions inspired by the holiday. See ya tonight!
This week at quizzo, I asked the following question: What is the name of the new Japanese Game Show in which gay men try to bring straight men to climax? The answer was Orgasm Wars. Very few teams got it right, but just about everyone took a guess at it. Here are a few of those guesses:
Hole in the Wall
Happy Fun Man Hour
Homo Erect Us
Cum to Daddy
Pressure Cooker Man Challenge
Wan Dick Lo!
Johnny Goodtimes Quizzo

Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Half off quesadillas and burritos, and $3.50 Mexican beers. On to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. New can specials each week. You should probably expect a few JFK questions, and a round dedicated to Rob Ford. See ya tonight!

Some of you have attended Noah Tarnow’s Big Quiz Thing at the World Cafe Live in the past, and know that it can be a lot of fun. Well, get this: he’s doing one this Sunday at 8 p.m. At the World Cafe Live, which is a mere 10 blocks from City Tap House. I talked to him recently and told him we’d be wrapping up around 8, so if he could hold off until 8:30, we’d probably get a couple of teams there. He said, “Sure.” So if any of you junkies want to double up on exciting quiz action on Sunday night, I wanted to make sure you knew about this, taking place right after the Invitiational. He runs a very good quiz.
Huge upsets at nearly every quiz this week. I don’t recall another week like this one in recent memory. Part of it has to do with the fact that this is a tough quiz this week. It keeps scores down, but it also improves the chances of an upset.
We start at Industry at 6:30 p.m. It’s was rocking there last week. Let’s do it again tonight! $3 craft special and terrific food. On to Bards at 9 p.m. Can you know off the Jesters? This could be the week. $3 Lagers. See ya tonight!
