Just got a new batch of Eagles gear in at the store, located on 137 South 13th Street, between Walnut and Sansom. If you plan on buying Eagles gear for the upcoming season, I hope you’ll grab it from us. We’ve got a terrific selection of great looking shirts and hats. And we’re currently running a sale on this throwback Eagles hat. $25 and free shipping. You won’t find a better deal than this online for a hat of this quality. Just use the code “hat” when you checkout to get free shipping.

I also wrote a piece in Philly Mag this week about why the Phillies stink and we need to try to get the A’s back in town. Best thing I’ve written in a while. Worth a read if you’re a baseball fan.

Speaking of baseball, let’s go Taney Dragons! The Philly Little League team has advanced to the finals of their region and with a win on Sunday would advance to Williamsport. Even cooler? Their best pitcher is a girl. Several members of the team are on the Anderson Monarchs, who people in the G-Ho area are well aware of, as they play on that beautiful field at 18th and Fitzwater. The regional final will be on ESPN2 on Sunday at 6 p.m., so be sure to tune in and root on Philly!

Last Night of 1990s Week is Tonight!

90s

Well this is it. If you want to prove how much you remember about the 1990s, then tonight is the night! 1990s quiz going down at Industry at 6:30 p.m. French Fry Face-off, Name That Tune, and of course a $3 craft beer and delicious food.

On to Bards at 9 p.m. Jesters of Tortuga will not be there, so it’s anyone’s ballgame. Hope to see ya tonight!

All New 1990s Quiz Tonight

90s

We kick it off at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to the Black Sheep at 8 p.m. All questions on the 1990s. Been an interesting week of quizzes so far. A few upsets, and  a rather interesting scoring situation last night at the Tap House. Hope to see ya tonight!

1990s Tripleheader Tonight

90s

We kick it off at the Comcast Market at 5:30 p.m. BYO quiz, with $100 worth of prizes for the winners. $5 off anywhere you want to go in the market, and there are a lot of great places to choose from.

On to O’Neals at 8 p.m. $3.50 Mexican beers and margaritas, and $5 burritos. On to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. Been a little quiet the past few weeks, and with a $100 gift cert on the line and a quiz that just might trip up the Jesters, this would be a good week to give it a shot before the youngsters get back in town. Looks like it’s gonna be a nice night out. I think maybe we should do the quiz al fresco tonight.

The quiz is all on the 1990s. Been an interesting quiz so far. Hope to see ya tonight!

Quizzo at the Oval on Saturday

unnamed-12

Gonna be back at the Eakins Oval on Saturday (and each of the next few Saturdays) with an all new quiz. Last week’s theme was summer, and was won by Keepin It Clean (above). This week’s theme will be Philadelphia. Had a HUGE turnout last week. Expecting another good one tomorrow. It’s worth checking out the beer garden. Really a cool spot to hang out. Action starts at 4 p.m.

The Dude Hates Cancer Week Next Week!

lebowski

Hey gang, Quizzo for the Cause returns next week as we raise funds for The Dude Hates Cancer. If you love the Big Lebowski and hate cancer, then next week is gonna be a great one. We’ll have raffles, White Russians, and a round on the Big Leobowski at each quiz (though NOT an entire Lebowski quiz). If you’ve never seen the Big Lebowski, this weekend is the perfect time to do so. One of the best movies ever. All of the funds we raise will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Look forward to seeing you next week!
