A Whole New World
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Tonight’s blog serves as a bit of a PSA for those of you who have played at Little J’s in the past and enjoyed my smiling face. In order to rock out more than we already do, the Little J’s gift tab prizes are now good starting the day after quiz, and any day forward. No more missing a week causing you to lose your bar tab! Wahoo! And as always, we will continue to give out 8 bonus beers (3 more than most other bars), and we will continue to run our 8 week raffles. What’s the 8 week raffle? Glad you asked. Every 8 weeks we do a drawing. The winner must be present to claim their prize, and the prize is always awesome. I’ve given

Lava In Idaho, And Other Geographical Quirks
Cody H.

Hello! I stepped in for your regular host tonight, who was off dazzling the greater Houston area with our Archer theme quiz, so you got me! Always a fun time here at Little J's; I believe this is my fourth time guest-hosting for real here. If I hit five I believe I get a jacket.    Anyway, hell was other Quizzers this week as we learned all about the kinds of words that start with "hell", then quickly moved on to a Round 2 that featured covers and samples from the Queen of Houston and her backing group. This round was a smidge difficult, with only one gimmie and a bunch of backing samples that were buried under Beyonce's voice.   Round 3

The Thing at the Thing
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Been one of those weeks. By one of those weeks I mean that I’ve done little more than play Skyrim, watch others play Skyrim, consume alcohol, and host. Exciting, I know. My Skyrim character is a cat. I know they have an in game name that isn’t cat, but they’re cats. I named him Meowzers. (Yes, him. The girl cats look funny.) Funny thing about playing as a cat is that when I did my character customization, because of the fur color, I couldn’t see a lot of the markings or what they were. So when my friends made their characters, I got to see them for the first time. Okay, that wasn’t funny at all. It might not even be interesting.

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. 16 might be a venue record, and that’s awesomesauce with a cherry on top. Bring your friends and let’s push this bad boy over 18 three weeks and a row so that I get a scorekeeper and get paid the same amount to work 80% as hard. Yeah buddy! Blah, blah. So. July 4th is banging on the front door. On the ride in to host today I heard the alarmist social agenda media trying to ruin the birth of our nation by insisting that fireworks cause, among other things, “…coughing, scratchy throats, sneezing, maybe asthma, and early death.” Okay. Pro tip. If you are going to shoot off fireworks, don’t light anything

Goo Goo Ga Ga
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out again this week! It was a joy as always. I’m not just saying that to play nice either. I mean, that’s part of it. But I’m also a really nice person, and nice people know when to lie to make people feel better about themselves. Right? I’m also an honest person, and honest people are horrible at lying, even to make people feel better. So it’s not that sometimes I’m not  nice, it’s that sometimes being nice is impossible for honest people. It’s why honest people make horrible parents. In 99.99% of all situations, if dried up macaroni gets stuck/glued to any surface, you try to scrape it off, and if it continues

Stream Like Water, Tide Like Detergent
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for swimming out tonight, the team count continues to grow and that’s like the coolest thing since sliced bread. Speaking of sliced bread, I just ate a piece of some insanely good Irish Stout bread from Central Market. Imho Central Market has the best produce, so I tend to go there for most of my shopping needs. Needs which are things that some people confuse with wants, saying things like, “I need unlimited texting and cable internet,” when they really mean, “I want unlimited texting and cable internet.” Cable internet. Cable. Cable companies. Cable companies need to get over bundled pricing. Bundled pricing is a way for cable channels to fund otherwise

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! CONGRATS TO OUR WINNERS OF THE REBECCA BLACK WHISKEY PACKAGE! I’m jealous! I’m going to take this moment of your time to talk a bit about our 8 week drawings. Every 8 weeks we do a drawing for a big prize. We’ve given out box seats to Texans games, tickets to Rockets games, Skeeters games, etc. We’ve done tickets to the rodeo.

Going Under
Rainbow Brite

Thanks to everyone who came out tonight. I don't think there was an empty seat in the place, so that was pretty awesome. Now we need to work on filling out the patio, right? Right.  Today's blog is going to be short and sweet. Mostly because I had massive dental work yesterday and am currently strung out on pain killers. Every other word is showing up with some sort of colored wiggly line under it, so coherency and all that jazz are clearly not happening for me right now.  So I'll leave you with this. Five things to watch on Netflix if you find yourself  incapable of moving for one reason or another: Haven... If you miss the X-Files, this will hit the

Montpelier Only Has Three Syllables You Philistines
Cody H.

Words are strange. In different mouths they can take on different intonations and inflections, and maybe add on a syllable or two. The capital of Vermont, Montpelier, is one of these words apparently! During Round 3 this week, you were asked to name all the four-syllable state capitals you could, and for some reason you guys kept tacking that extra syllable onto Montpelier. It only has three! I suppose we are in Texas, where the drawl is king, but still. We had another state capital answer this week, but Indianapolis has FIVE syllables. The more you know.   This week, Connor was in control the whole way and took First wire-to-wire, with We

Seriously Dan?
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out. I will not be writing about quiz, I am going to discuss Survivor. Deal. So let’s talk about Dan and his power. I blasted the tribe for not booting him last week, so good on them  for figuring out to do that this week. Now it’s Dan’s turn to get a healthy serving of, “Dude, seriously?” So here’s the thing, unless he is as stupid as I think he is (which I’ve been hoping he isn’t since I think he has offspring), he HAD TO HAVE KNOWN he was on the chopping block. He *has to know* that *everyone* wants to

Outwit, Outplay, Cry, Cry, Cry
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. I missed new Survivor to host for you bitches, so it’s a damn good thing you all were well behaved tonight. Heh. So confession. I’m in a Survivor Fantasy league. I’m currently in first place. I am the only person with 3 players still in. Tyler, Rod, and Will. I’ve been pulling for Tyler to win since day one, and up until this week when Sierra spoke for the first fucking time all god damn season I thought he’d fly under the radar and actually win. This has been the season of the temper fit, and he’s been smart enough to stand back and let his alliance and Mike engage in dick waving contests by the campfire, voting eachother

Rain Rain, Stay Away...
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! It was good to see most of my regulars. That means you all didn’t drown on Friday when the entire fucking city turned into a damn lake in the blink of an eye. HOLY MOTHER FUCKING SHIT BALLS! But seriously. I had to drive down that on I-45. Have you ever driven down a flooded interstate in a Honda? I don’t recommend it. Unless flooded engines and stalling out are your thing, and then you should absolutely give it a whirl. Yeah.

RIP One of the Greatest Beerz Ev4r
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out this week… The weather was amazing, the patio was open, the beer was flowing, and Firestone Velvet Merlin was only $3 a pint. And it will never be back. Ever. Maybe? I have no fucking clue. We gave it one hell of a sendoff though, and that’s what matters. So normally if I’m calling out teams it’s for silly answers. Tonight I feel like you all had some missed opportunities. In particular, the question about the hottest, driest hole in America. Yeah, how is it possible that not a one of you wrote down, “Betty White’s Vag”? (Or any other aging famous lady with a likely drive up cooch.) Seems like a waste. The good news

Thank you all for coming out tonight, RAFFLE NIGHT! I gave out a pack of tickets to see the Skeeters play. I have no idea what that means, but the winners were exceptionally excited, so I assume it has nothing to do with the eagle sized mosquitoes that seem to have my legs confused with a god damned all you can eat buffet. I assume. I also assume that everyone knows about our Quiz for a Cause charity leg. I announce the program every week, and finally got a hit.

Too Hot
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Can we talk about the weather? For just a moment? It was hotter’n a pig’s butt at a luau today and I don’t like it. I don’t like it for a few reasons, the least of which being the uncomfortable pit sweat because I didn’t think to use anti-perspirant this morning. Yeah, that’s not the worst part. Nor was my burning hot steering wheel. Not that. No. The worst part was the swarming pack of wasps enjoying the first day of warmth in several months. Fuck. Wasps. Seriously.
