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!)

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!

Automatic Invite at Industry Tonight

cat-in-autumn-wallpaper-1

A one-time only offer, whoever wins at Industry tonight has nothing to worry about for the next several weeks, as they are going to earn an automatic invite to the JGT Invitational. In addition, there will as always be $3 craft beers and delicious food at the third best bar in Philly according to Foobooz. Plenty of parking, and with the french fry faceoff and the Name That Tune, probably the funnest quiz I do all week. Action starts at 6:30.

On to Bards at 9 p.m. Been packed lately. Let’s keep it going tonight. $3 Lagers. See ya tonight!

JGTAI Scores Through Four Weeks

autumninviteHere ya go, our standings after four weeks. Teams in yellow would be in line for a bonus prize, teams in orange would still make the cut, and teams in blue still have some work to do. A very easy way to score points is right now on the facebook page…just post a link to your favorite short story. And this THursday, I am giving away an AUTOMATIC BID to the winner of the quizzo at Industry. Just throwing that out there now.

 

Double Points Night Tonight

Things have been a little crazy the past few weeks with Eagles and Labor Day, but now we’re back in the swing of things on Mondays. Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. Great chance to get a win and get on the board.

On to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m. Great bar, and probably a great night to get a win (and earn 10 points). Let’s go!

JGTAI Scores After Two Weeks!

autumninvite

Here ya go! Our scores after two weeks of quizzin’. Lots of points were given away with our Bonus question this past week. Well, there is a new one up. Great way to earn points, and to get to know a bit more about each other as well.

Teams in yellow and orange would make the cut if the season ended today. But the season doesn’t end today. Lots of time left to play. So get your team in gear and get out to quizzo, so you can earn an invite to the JGT Autumn Invitational!  

Action starts again on Monday at 7 p.m. at North Star and 9:30 at Sidecar. Since both were cancelled last week, both will be double points quizzes this week.
