JGTSI Scores With One Week to Go

summerinvite2015

Well, we’ve got one week left in the JGTSI, and things are getting heated. Here are our scores. There are several teams in the fight for those last few spots, and the top 16 will be determined this week. The event is taking place on August 16th at the Urban Saloon. We’ve got several teams fighting for their first spot in an invite, but they’ve got some work to do. Teams like Game Blouses, Shades of Death, and Pop Shop all have a great shot but need big weeks to earn an invite. There is some good news on that front, however: an easy way to get some points is via Facebook Bonus Points, which you can earn right now.

Dude Hates Cancer Week Wraps Up Tonight; Over $1000 Raised So Far

954740_10152838678105123_594557205_n_1x

In 6 quizzes we’ve raised over $1000 for The Dude Hates Cancer. Really honored to be part of such a giving community. So far O’Neals has been the most generous, with $200 raised. Can the Industry or Bards top them tonight?

We start at Industry at 6:30 p.m. We were rocking and rolling last week, let’s keep the party going this week as well. As always, terrific food and excellent craft beer specials. And probably our most winnable quiz, with a new team taking the title nearly every week.

On to Bards at 9:15 p.m. $3 Lagers and assorted nonsense.

The JGTSI venue has been confirmed…Urban Saloon on August 16th. More details coming soon.

Quizzo Tonight

Screen shot 2015-07-29 at 2.23.16 PM

We keep it rolling at the Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to Founding Fathers at 8:30 p.m. Great specials at both, and of course our vaunted 7th place prize at Founding Fathers.

Thus far this week, we’ve raised $665 for the Dude Hates Cancer. I’d love to cross the $1000 mark tonight. I’d expect a few questions loosely based on The Dude Hates Cancer. See ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight!

We kick it off at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Not only are we fundraising for the Dude hates Cancer (we raised $365 at quizzo last night), you’ll also have a shot of winning an extra $50…Spoonie is offering an extra $50 to any team that cracks 110 points to win.

On to City Tap House at 10:15. Been a lot of fun there the past few weeks. Busier this summer than summers past. Hope to see ya tonight!

Question of the Week

goodman

This Zen anarchist was a screenwriter for the first two Dirty Harry films and Apocalypse Now, lobbied Congress to give Teddy Roosevelt a Medal of Honor, came up with the idea of the octagon cage for the UFC, and helped inspire the character of Walter in The Big Lebowski.  Who is he?

The Dude Hates Cancer Week Starts Tonight

Screen shot 2015-07-27 at 3.06.01 PM

 

We’re doing our annual “Dude Hates Cancer Week” this week at quizzo. We will be selling restaurant raffle tickets, just like last year, and our wild card round will not be a Lebowski round, per se, but will be somehow influenced by that great film. $5 buys you one raffle ticket, $20 buys you 6 (and gets you a free pair of sunglasses). Most importantly, 100% of the proceeds raised go to a great cause, the Dude Hates Cancer, an annual bowling fundraiser inspired by the film. This year’s event will be on August 29th at South Bowl, and there are still some spots available.

Action starts tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. We move to Sidecar at 9:30. Hope to see you tonight!

Not only has there been more parity at Industry than anywhere else on the circuit (6 different winners in the past 6 weeks), but tonight I am offering double points in the JGTSI to any team that wins (as well as double points for 2nd and 3rd). It’s an incredible opportunity to get your team in the mix. Action starts at 6:30.

On to Bards at 9 p.m., where you’ll try to knock off the CGA, who have won 3 out of the past 4 weeks. See ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight

We kick it off at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. Still a chance to get a seat. It’s not been empty lately, but it hasn’t been slammed either. Could be a good shot to get in. If you’re going to Founding Fathers at 8:30, get there early. It’s a friggin madhouse almost every week. Just nuts. See ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight

Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. On to Tap House at 10:15. Expect a round dedicated to the heat. See ya tonight!

JGTSI Scores Are Posted! (Finally!)

summerinvite2015

Finally got around to adding all your points up over the past month, and here are the results, straight off the presses. Now, if anyone was out our Anniversary event last week and I forgot to put you on there, let me know. I think I got everyone but I’m not sure. Anyways, look at your score and let me know if I’ve flubbed anything.

So here’s our situation with three weeks left in the regular season (Big Event will be held on August 16th. Venue and band info coming soon). We’ve got some usual suspects at the top of the board, but we’ve also got a few new teams making a name for themselves. Game Blouses, Pop Shop, 21 to Drink, and Shades of Death are all making a run. Can they keep it up this week?

If you’re looking to get a win, your best bet is the Industry. We have a new winner nearly every week. I’ll also be offering double points there this week.

Also, there is a new opportunity to JGTSI Bonus Points on Facebook. An easy way to get in the mix if you’re not already there.

Get your team in gear for the home stretch, and I’ll see ya this week!
