Double Points at French Fry Thursday Tonight!

frenchfries

Oh what the hell, let’s give away a ton of points tonight. In addition to our normal insanity with French Fry Thursday and Name That Tune for Candy, we’re gonna go double points at both venues. A terrific chance for your squad to get up high on the JGTSI scoreboard. First of all, the Industry is probably the most winnable quiz on the scene, with no dominant team. Action starts at 6:30 p.m. Terrific burgers and $3 craft brews. Secondly, there are rumors that the Jesters of Tortuga will not be playing tonight at the Bards, so that makes it anybody’s ballgame. $3 Lagers. Action starts at 9 p.m. And this is a different quiz than the one on Monday and Tuesday, so if you played then, you are welcome to play again. Let’s rock the house tonight. Boom!

Question of the Week

Charles Trenet

This French artist wrote “La Mer”. Years later, Bobby Darin would change some of the lyrics and make it “Beyond the Sea”. Who was the French artist who, legend has it, wrote the song in ten minutes?

Week 4 of the JGTSI Ends Tonight

If your team needs points in the JGTSI, then get your butts down to the Industry tonight. Great opportunity to score a win and get yourselves on the scoreboard. Action starts at 6:30. And I’ll throw ya a bone: the audio round is TV theme songs.

On to Bards at 9 p.m. $3 lagers and a chance to knock off those bastard Jesters. And we’ll have French Fry Faceoff and Name That Tune for candy at both spots. Hope to see ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight!

The Sandman hosts tonight at Industry at 6:30 p.m. and Bards at 9 p.m. $3 beers at both spots, and Jesters of Tortuga will not be playing tonight, so it’s anybody’s ballgame at Bards. And Industry is always up for grabs. Two great opportunities to score points in the JGTSI. And remember, there is a new physical challenge on the facebook page if you’re trying to earn bonus points and get your team into the Big Event on August 24th.

Quizzo Tonight

Action starts at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. $3 Abita Purple Haze pins. Great beer for a hot day like today. On to the Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. Red, white, and blue quiz. Hope to see you tonight!

Red, White, and Blue Week Starts Tonight

It’s a festive occasion, as Red, White, and Blue week kicks off tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. Things were quiet there last week, so it could be a great opportunity to get a win. On to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m.

As for the quiz itself, it will have a few questions about ‘Murica and Old Glory and 1776 and all of that, but there will also be questions on the colors red, white, and blue. And probably at least a question or two on Chuck Norris. There will only be one quiz this week. Hope to see ya tonight!

Week 2 of the JGTSI Wraps Up Tonight

Two weeks of our 9-week season are gonna be in the books at the conclusion of tonight’s quiz, so if your team doesn’t have any points yet, you’ll want to make your way out to quizzo tonight. We start at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Yes, the NBA draft will be on so we can commiserate when the Sixers take either a 7-footer who will be injured his whole career or an Aussie who looks good playing against the New Zealand 17-and-under All-Stars but who will be completely overmatched in the NBA.

Where were we? Oh yes, we’ll be moving to Bards at 9 p.m. $3 craft beer at Industry and $3 Lagers at Bards. And your first chance to check out my bitchin’ new sound system. And candy and fries to give away. Let’s do the damn thing!

Question of the Week

Quizzo Tonight

Week Two of the JGTSI begins tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30. Things were a little quiet there last week, so I think it’s anybody’s ballgame. Could be a good way to earn 5 points. General quiz this week. And I’ll have pics of last week’s winners posted tomorrow. Lost a few too many brain cells while celebrating our Grand Opening over the weekend to get it done today.

So What the Hell is a Chinese Auction?

As I’ve been talking to people about our big weekend coming up, the first question that people keep asking is a good one: what the hell is a Chinese auction? Truth be told, I just found out what it was this week. Here’s how it will work at our event:

When you arrive at Milkboy on Sunday at 5, you’ll be given several raffle tickets¬†(you can earn more tickets by buying shirts, hats, etc). There will be several shirts, hats, etc. from our store to bid on. But you’ll be bidding on things that might happen in the soccer match. For instance, you can drop your ticket in front of a bowl that reads “US scores first” (and maybe the prize is a US soccer shirt). Another bowl will read “0-0 tie at half”,with an A’s hat as the prize, etc. You’ll decide what to put your tickets on, and then if those things happen, we draw a ticket to see who wins. Should add a little bit of extra excitement to what is already gonna be an exciting match. We’ll be watching on a 10′ big screen, and playing Lee Greenwood every time the Americans score. Oh right, and $5 sangria and $3 pounders of Narragansett and Miller High Life. Hope you can join us!

French Fry Thursday

Week One of theJGTSI keeps on rockin’ and rolling tonight. Once again, rounds are inspired by the World Cup, but you won’t need to know a whole heck of a lot about soccer. Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Great burgers and a new $3 craft beer special every week. On to Bards at 9 p.m., where Michael, who just got a ton of love in this Serious Eats piece, is behind the bar. Frenc Fry Face-off and Name That Tune both on tap for tonight.

Summer Invitational Starts Tonight!

Just a heads up that the JGTSI starts tonight at North Star at 7. And yes, the US soccer match will be on the big screen! We move to Sidecar at 9:30. Great chance to get your team off to a good start tonight! And no theme this week, though I’d expect a bit of a World Cup twist.

The Invite will take place on Sunday, August 24th. Top 18 teams earn an invite. 5 points for each first place, 3 points for 2nd, and 1 point for third. Plus plenty of bonus points to be earned as we move forward. I’ll have more details tomorrow. (I’ll also have last weeks pics and scores up tomorrow.)

Quizzo Tonight

We kick it off at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. On to the Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. Decent chance I yell at another screaming Center City Sips clown tonight! Don’t miss it!

And don’t forget that the Game of Thrones quiz is coming this Sunday!

Quizzo Tonight

Action kicks off at North Star at 7 p.m. We’ve been cruising nicely the past few weeks. Let’s keep it poppin’ tonight. On to Sidecar tonight at 9:30. We had ¬†shootout last week. Both spots are totally winnable. So get your squad together and let’s make the magic happen.
