double

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.

Question of the Week

Harry_Kendall_Thaw_circa_1905

Who killed Stanford White on the rooftop of the Madison Square Garden in 1906, then was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the first “Trial of the Century” of the 20th Century?

Guilty As Charged Week at Quizzo

Guilty as Charged Gavel

An all-new concept this week at quizzo. Questions will be a combination of questions about guilty pleasures (I want to know what yours are on the Facebook page) and questions about famous criminals, court cases, shows about the law, etc. And, in questions pertaining to persons such as Judge Judy, a combination of the two.

Invitational to Be Held on May 18th at Field House

Just wanted to give ya a heads up a little earlier than usual on when and where the Invitational will be this season. Gonna be at the Field House on Sunday, May 18th. And no, this isn’t the same Field House that used to host Jersey Shore parties. Andy from Tap House and his crew took it over a couple of years ago and now it’s a damn awesome bar, complete with bubble hockey, Pop-a-Shot, great food, and awesome beers on tap. They’ve also got plenty of room, a stage, and will hook us up with some specials for the event. More details coming soon, but for now save the date. Not set on the time yet, but it will be late afternoon/early evening (probably 5 or 6).

JGT Invitational Scores After Two Weeks

springvitational.jpg

Here’s our scores after two weeks of the JGT Invitational. A few things of note: Inkspot leads despite not having won yet. They post on twitter each week before, during or after quizzo, and teams earn a point each time they tweet about JGT Quizzo.  It’s an easy way to start earning points. They were also helped by the fact that opening night of the Invitational was a double points night, and they wore a lot of green for St. Patty’s Day last week. That’s why teams at the top are from North Star and Sidecar. Don’t worry, teams from other bars, your time is coming. This week’s double points night is Tuesday, at O’Neals and City Tap House. 10 points for the winners, 6 points for 2nd, and 2 points for 3rd.

As for the Invitational itself, it will be held at Field House on Sunday, May 18th. More details coming soon.

If you haven’t scored yet, don’t sweat it. Tons of time to get on the scoreboard. It’s a ten week season, and lots of opportunities to score points coming up. In fact, there has just been a physical challenge posted on the facebook page. An easy way to score 6 quick points.

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.
