Last month we got Reef the Lost Cauze to rap over Hall and Oates. What will happen tonight? Only one way to find out. We’ve got a terrific lineup, with Mary Radzinski, Gregg Gethard, and TJ Kong. Action starts at 9:00 at Good Good Theatre. Two terrific comedians, a terrific songwriter, and the debut of Name That Smell. See ya tonight!
On Monday night, you’re going to get incredible advice from one of the most brillaint financial minds in America, Financial Guru Gregg Gethard. Action starts at GoodGood Comedy Theatre in Chinatown at 9 p.m. Do not miss this once ins a lifetime opportunity! He’s going to take your $5 ticket and turn it into millions! It’s time for you to stop being poor!
Three great opportunities to get a win tonight and get your team into the Invitational, being held this Sunday at Lucky Strike. We’ll quiz, we’ll bowl, we’ll watch football. It’ll be great.
But if you haven’t gotten an invite yet, there’s still hope. You have to win this week. And you’ve got three chances to do so. We start at Markets at Comcast at 5:30. Then Carl hosts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Great shot to get a win there. And I’ll be at Sidecar at 8 p.m. as well. Hope to see ya tonight!
Here they are, folks, the final scores in the JGTAI. Teams in orange have been invited, teams in grey have accepted invite, and teams in blue are on the bubble, to take anyone’s place in case they can’t uphold their Invitational duties. Shoutout to Quiz Quiztie for winning the whole damn thing. If anyone has any questions or concerns, shoot me a line. Invites will be going out this weekend, and remember that next week is wild card week, so there’s still a shot to make the cut.
Believe it or not, we’re in YEAR 15 of the oldest tradition in the JGT arsenal: the annual Halloween Spooktacular. All questions about demons and goblins and ghouls. Also skeletons. And death. And mayhem. OK, OK, you know what Halloween is, you get the picture. Anyways, gonna be a fun time as always, with lots of candy to giveaway and of course anyone who dresses up earns their team 3 points in the JGTAI (up to 15 points per team). Here’s this week’s schedule:
Here ya go, our updated scores! Shout out to There’s No I in… who earned 8 points for being the only team to attend my comedy show. AHEM. (cough). AHEM. The NEXT one is November 20th and I would HATE for the rest of you to miss it.
There are still four weeks left to earn points, so if you’re not in the green, you soon can be: there’s a brand new Facebook picture challenge. It’ll be fun to see pics of you guys in the 90s.
Still working on a venue for the big event, but I’ve got a real promising lead for something I think is going to be Ultra-Fun. I hope to announce it on Monday.
Action starts tonight at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15, as usual. But due to the Sixers season opener, we’re going to push the Founding Fathers quiz back to 9:15 p.m. Might also be a bit hectic with seating. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up to be patient as we make the switchover. See ya tonight!
