From Now On, I Am Bringing My Own Speaker
Bersonality

Hey there, My Jackpot Players! Since they are remodeling the room where we do our quiz, they had us out in the bar area last night. I think – apart from the audio rounds being a bit tricky – it all worked out well. Glad to have all of you come out on a Monday evening. OK. Let’s get right to it:   SOME TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ: Here is Starbucks’ description of their new drink: The Unicorn Frappuccino: “The flavor-changing, color-changing, totally-not-made-up Unicorn Frappuccino. Magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour. Swirl it to reveal a color-changing spectacle of

If you are ever in Vegas, you should come to one. They're fun and you can win stuff!

Microphone? Nah!
Bersonality

Hey there, My Jackpot Quiz Players! Good to see all of you at Jackpot Bar & Grill last night. I was a bit nervous about the quiz when I had one player at 7:45. Luckily for all of us, more of you showed up close to our regular starting time of 8:00pm. Some showed up a bit later than that, and that’s OK. The more the merrier, whenever you arrive!   SOME TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ: Silly Putty was created by accident. During World War II, the government asked chemists to search for a synthetic rubber substitute. One scientist, Dr. James Wright—the man who's most commonly credited for Silly Putty's invention—came close. In

Back at the Jack(pot)!
Bersonality

Hey there, My Jackpot Pub Quiz Players! Out sixth quiz at Jackpot Bar & Grill had six teams! I like this trend! We missed last week because of the NCAA finals. So I was very happy to see a half dozen teams show up to play last night! Many times – when we skip a week – attendance goes down, so you understand what I mean. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty:   TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ: “When Will I Be Loved” by Linda Ronstadt. Originally written and performed by The Everly Brothers. The

That Google Translator Really Knows How to Mess Up a Movie Quote.
Bersonality

Hello there, my Jackpot Players! Thank you all for joining me at Jackpot Bar & Grill last night for our pub quiz! It was week 4 and – as you all know – these things take time to build up a regular following. I think, over time, we are going to have more and more teams come out and play on Mondays.     A FEW TIDBITS FROM THE QUIZ:   Yes, Trump’s new budget is calling for cutting Meals on Wheels and after school programs to feed kids. If you want to know the justification, just listen to this little prick…um…I mean White

No Quizzing Baby! No Quizzing On The Dance Floor!
Bersonality

Hello there, my Jackpot Players!   Week #3 for us had a dance floor and a fog machine! That set-up is for their St. Patrick’s Day party, featuring U2cover band, corned beef & cabbage and Guinness beer. If you are free that night and want to have some fun, check it out! In the meantime, I hope you all had a fun time playing our pub quiz at Jackpot Bar & Grill. Good food and beer specials! Oh, also Tony, the manager, has a “Bounty Hunter” special. That means, if you come back to play next week and bring more people, you will get a free beer for every new person you bring. Not too shabby!   A FEW TIDBITS FROM

No Hillary Clinton or Teletubbies to See Here!
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players! Well, it was our second quiz at Jackpot Bar & Grill and we doubled the number of teams. I hope this trend continues. I really like this venue and there is nothing wrong with getting bigger and better week by week. We will continue working on the technical issues. For now, the format we did last night will be how we do our quiz until some adjustments can be made. I appreciate your being OK with that.     TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ: Heads up! This particular blog is link heavy as I am a movie and TV junkie and I am the one writing it. With that in mind… Since it was

NEW VENUE! NEW QUIZ!
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players! I was really great to see you guys last night at Jackpot Bar & Grill for our first pub quiz there. I know I said it a couple of times, but sincerely, thank you so much for coming down and playing last night. I got there around 6:30 to make sure everything was going to be set up properly and working. Tony, the owner, couldn’t have been nicer. He seems really excited that we will be having our quiz there Monday nights. From what I heard from you guys, this place is a good spot. $3 beer specials. Good food. Good prices. That seems like a winning combination to me. FYI: I got “The Southern Fried Express”. Fried Chicken with mashed
