What Was I Saying?
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out. It’s been three weeks since the last time that I saw your pretty little faces. FUUUUCK SPORTS BALL! But seriously, I’ve never been so happy to be out of a playoff season in all my life. And I think you all are too. Keep on coming in and stay tuned for more brewery night announcements. Speaking on, go on and mark you day planners (do people still have those?) or punch this into your Blackberry (those are still at thing, right?). Southern Star is going to be here the first Tuesday of August to debut their newest brew, so be one of the first to give it a go! If it’s half as good as a Buried Hatchet, it’s going to be amazing. Truf. So

The North Remembers, Pepperidge Farm Remembers
Desiree

     I was atop my throne, and all was quiet in Christian's Gate yesterday until a storm struck around 3 o'clock in the eve. Twas a rush of mystical beings calling themselves quizzer in search of gold and booty. I presented them with a challenge of wits that even Lord Tyrion could be proud of.        Our challenge of with covered the realm with knowledge of weaponry, betrayal, and even writing and arithmetic. We covered favorite players in the Game from Arya, Jon, and Robb to those less favorable like Cersei, Joffrey, and those dastardly wildlings.            In the end, The North Remembers, Pepperidge

Hello!

I started playing quiz with GWD at the Maple Leaf Pub. I heard they were in search of quizmasters and decided to audition. I am quite the social butterfly. so I figured: meet new people, free booze, and quiz. What more could a girl ask for?

By day, I am a middle school Industrial Technology Teacher- yes 12-14 year olds and power tools. I'm an Aggie (WHOOP!), a dog lover, and a scorpio. My favorite color is purple and one day I hope to venture to Costa Rica, Italy, and Australia. That's me in a nutshell.

Thank You Pedernales Brewery!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight, and a super fucking thank you to Pedernales Brewery for rolling in with all that beer. I’m enjoying a Robert Earl Keen honey pilsner right now. It’s delightfully crisp and I’m not getting paid a dime to say that. (I suppose in a way I’m getting paid to say that as if I don’t blog I don’t get paid. That feels like a technicality. I could have blogged without saying that and my pay for the evening would not have changed.) Blah, blah, blah. Alright. I’m going to take a moment to shamelessly promote myself. You all come every week. You like me. You might love me. One of you has an unhealthy obsession with me.

Where's a Raft When You Need One?
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out! I haven’t had the chance to thank you all in ages. Fucking Rockets. I have never rooted so hard against a sports team in my life. I don’t root this hard against the Red Sox and I’m a die hard Yanks fan. I know, now that I’ve won the hearts of everyone in Houston, I’m sure you’re all on the edge of your seats to hear what I think about gay marriage, abortion, and the introduction of the PG-13 rating. You’ll have to get me drunk and naked to find out about any of that. What else? Ah! THANK YOU SAINT ARNOLD’S! They showed up and, again, rolled in style. I’ve never seen

No Quiz Next Week
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! It’s been 3 weeks by now since the last time we did this. Fucking Rockets, right? I’m a Dallas girl, so I have to say that. Truth be told, I was actually pulling for the Rockets by the end of the series with the Mavericks for the simple reason that the more games they played, the more quizzes of mine got cancelled. Boo. To. That. But since we’re discussing the Rockets. It is exceptionally likely that they will end up playing a game 5. Odds of a Clippers sweep are slim to none. If there is a game 5, it will be next Tuesday and that will interfere with quiz. You should come here anyway because

Karbach Rachs!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out, and THANK YOU KARBACH for all the extra bonus prizes tonight. For those of you unfortunate enough to have missed out, I gave away about 30 tickets to this weekend’s Local Brews, Local Grooves show at the House of Blues. It’s a concert and beer mini-festival put on by several local breweries in conjunction with local musicians and House of Blues. It’s one of the many reasons you should *never* skip out on a Tuesday night quiz at Christian’s Tailgate! The lion’s share of tickets went to my limerick writer winners. Here were my two favorite entries: Winnie the Booze: Told a gal I was a slow learner // So she ordered a draft barn

All the Beers!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out, and THANK YOU 8TH WONDER FOR ALL THE SWAG! I had pints, shirts, and free tour passes. If you weren’t here, you missed out on a mad swag grab. Buuuut, you can always show up next week for our Karbach night. (And the week after that for St. Arnolds, and the week after that for Southern Star!) Shirts for limericks! The best bribe I know. Here were some of my favorites: BuckyBalls: There once was a girl with bright pink hair // Hard questions she read without a care // She asked for dome fauxm // But whet home alone // Because all of the boys were too scared. Also Rand: She was interested in my dome fauxm // And around there I

Brew Nights!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. You were super quiet. It was weird. I thought I was in church or something. If church has beer, I might start going. Might. Doubtful. Who the fuck am I kidding? LOL, I’m not going. If nothing else, too early. Note: For those of you shilling your god/gods, you’ll have a much easier time selling a 4pm service than an 8am service. Seriously, I’m certain your god/gods hit the snooze button after a night of Saturday boozing. Just a thought. But we have some brewery nights coming up, so mark your calendars. On April 7th 8th Wonder will be here. On April 14th Karbach is in the house. On

Drink More Beer
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! The points were low, but spirits were high. Or something like that. But seriously, either you guys fell off you’re a games or last night was just really difficult. (Maybe you had too many beverages?) Who knows! Here’s what I do know. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be visited by some really good breweries. So far we’ve got dates set with Karbach, Southern Star, and St. Arnolds, and more on the way. You know how you find out about these events? You read this blog every week! You look at the pictures. You remember what you were too drunk to recall. You have extreme FOMO if you didn’t come. You make amends by coming

HAPPY 250TH BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! It was my 250th gig, Southern Star was out with a ton of gear, I had random gift cards, AND RON FRESHPANTS WAS IN THE FUCKING HOUSE! (With *the* tiara, which I wore. All night. On my gigantic fucking head. Seriously, that was a most excellent surprise.) So, as per the norm, on brewery nights I do limerick contests. Tonight I had a gagillion entries. These were mine (and the crowd’s) favorites: Winners! (We’re Not Very Good): I just me a girly quite rachet // She’s easy, and her crazy is batshit // She has many diseases // But her body, it pleases // So fuck it, I’ll buy my hatchet Second Place (#slowandsteady):

Next Week.. St. Arnold's. MUST NOT MISS!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out. I wasn’t sure what a Fat Tuesday at a sports bar would be like, but turns out, it’s not the worst. Note, those of you who missed this week are on notice, miss next week and my feelings will officially be hurt. *tear*. How about I give you three really good reasons to not miss the next three weeks? 1. Next week St. Arnold’s Brewery will be in the house. I never know what extra goodies they’ll roll in with, but I know that the last time they showed up I had a case of Santos prayer candles, 2 cases of pint glasses, koozies galore, and a wad of tour passes! 2. Karbach comes the following week, March 3rd. They’re

Lessons Learned
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! The plague is going around or some shit, but that didn’t keep me home and it didn’t keep you home. Tonight was a night of lessons learned. Mostly we learned two things: 1. If you are new to a game and someone stresses that some rounds are worth more points than others and they stress that within a sentence of stressing that you can double your points, you should probably take the cue and double the extra point rounds. Jus’ saying. But hey, everyone learns that lesson at some point. 2. If you show up with more than 6 people, send the drunk friend to the corner while I’m reading questions. Because if he sits at the table

I'd Like a Veggie Beef Steak
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out. It was cold and wet like that Frozen chick’s vagina (I assume). That usually spells low turn out. The good news is that these days low turn out means 13 teams with 5 people each instead of way more with 5 people each. I’ll take that. Mark it! February 24th St. Arnold’s Brewery will be back. Seriously, they bring the bangin’est swag. Do. Not. Miss. What else? Story time! Today I was sitting in my favorite pizza joint. I overheard a Guy order the Prosciutto slice. 10 minutes later the lady working the counter set his slice down in front of him. The guy said, "This has meat on it!?! I ordered the prosciutto!" There

He Buried his Hatchet in the Bombshell Blonde

Thank you all for coming out! I was sick, but I didn’t die, and that alone was a feat. A super special thanks to Southern Star. They rolled in with some of the slammin’est snap backs I’ve ever seen. A cameo printed Buried Hatchet snap back? I’d break my hat hair rule for that. My biggest disappointment tonight was Tailgate had Burried Hatchet for the first time and I’m on antibiotics, and was thus unable to have any. Boo! You know the drill by now. I had a limerick contest. Out of all you fuckers, only three teams entered anything, and only two of you actually did limericks. Here we are, the defacto winners!
