Hot Tub Butter Cake?
Rainbow Brite

Howdy, howdy! Thank you all for coming out tonight! Wednesday night means new Survivor, so Imma keep this bad boy quick. Most of what I’ll say has to do with Survivor though. Specifically me laughing hysterically that Sandra made it past day 1. She is the only two time winner, and she’s won it twice mostly because nobody ever bothers to vote her off. Ever. LOL. She doesn’t win things. She doesn’t contribute much to anything. She just got really good at going unnoticed and being a vote for the party in power. Good on her, but mostly bad on everyone who lets it happen. Ha! I’m a J.T. fan. I’ll pull for him. He is another one you don’t want to

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Rainbow Brite

 Thank you all for coming out tonight! Another week, another quiz. I should get a quiz count. I’m pretty sure I’m pushing up against 550 nights. I’ve certainly blown past 500. Math it up. I hit 250 over two years ago. Last year I did 153 nights, and the year before would be about the same since I hosted 3 nights a week plus private events the year before as well. I think 600 deserves a party? Dunno. I’ll come up with something awesome. At a minimum, I’m coming up on 3 years at this venue, and that deserves a celebration? Basically I’m looking for a reason to bring cupcakes. Any suggestions would be welcome. Tv stuff? I’m in a holding pattern.

Rules
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We announced that the next tournament period will be sponsored by Budweiser. Here’s what you need to know, since I haven’t posted about this in a while: Every 8 weeks at Little J’s we run a contest. The contest is sponsored by a brewery, distribution company, distillery, or something in that ballpark. Each week you play you get red tickets with a date on the back. The date you’ll be seeing for a while is April 19th. On April 19th you show up, drop your ticket (with your name on it) in a bowl, and I’ll draw a winner. The winner gets a super awesome grand prize courtesy the sponsoring company. We’ve

Yo ho ho! Thank you to everyone who came out, and a huge thank you to the folks at 8th Wonder Brewery for sponsoring us the past 8 weeks! These guys were super generous with the tour passes and the prizes. Seriously. Next drawing is April 19th, and I’ll announce the sponsor next week. So quick not on the Walking Dead. Last week was the third time we have seen that episode. How many members of Rick’s crew are we going to have to watch get the tour of the Savior compound? Everytime Negan tries to woo them. Of course Eugene was the only one who immediately dropped to his knees to suck Negan’s dick. That was pretty much the only variation in anything

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Tons of goodies running around the bar. 8th Wonder showed up with a fistful of brewery beer passes, and Absolute was here running some sort of promotion that involved samples and shot glasses. I don’t know what was happening but nobody seemed to mind it. Ha! Is there new Survivor tonight? I feel like the season should be starting soon if it hasn’t already. I’m not going to continue to discuss 24: Legacy in blogs because it’s just not good and I reserve my negativity points for The Walking Dead/Fear the Walking Dead shitshow. Instead I’ll say that everyone should start binge watching Twin Peaks to

Socks Was a Cat
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out again this week! The city seems to still be recovering from all the Super Bowl partying. All my usual haunts have been dead, so seeing a healthy full bar was really awesome. Few things are worse than walking into a empty bar on your own night. Ha! New Walking Dead. Okay, so we got some action. Some. Not a lot. Need a lot more. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the zombie kill scene was AWESOME! But in the context of the entire season, it was a drop in a vast, empty, boring bucket. I’m also not down with yet another “okay, let’s meet everyone” episode. Like, last night’s episode should have been the third episode of the season.

Cowboys '18
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! I might keep this quick tonight. Why? Because tonight is the 400th episode of Law and Order: SVU and I love the shit out of that show! I also should have a new Always Sunny lined up, and I without my knowing new episodes of Quantico have started airing again. (Why the fuck is that show not on Hulu anymore? Seriously NBC. More people would watch your stuff if you played nice with Hulu. It’s a monumental pain in the ass that I have to confirm my xfinity account on the site to stream shows. Like you’re blocking out what, five people in the Arctic Circle who don’t have an internet connection? (Because to get an internet connection

Patriotic Sports
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. I’d like to say I apologize for the fact that Rick Astley just started blasting, but I threw that tune in my 25 hour playlist for a reason. It still makes me giggle to have it randomly start playing. Also, it’s actually a really catchy tune. For cereal. Okay, so I’m kind of over this plague biznis. I’ve been sick for over two weeks. I’ve been a baritone for over two weeks. It’s weird. I don’t recognize my own voice right now. Though I’m starting to get used to it. I wish you all a safe and traffic free Super Bowl weekend. Avoid downtown like it’s going out of style. (Which I think downtown

Missing Keys

Thank you all for coming out! Numbers continue to hold strong. Which is awesome. Here’s a fun question…. How many of you are running the fuck away from town the week of the Super Bowl? I’m high tailing it to Dallas that Thursday in utter fear of the masses. I remember how out of control the city was when the All Star NBA game was in town. I think it was the All Star game. It was unfun. Lots of unfun. And, and, bonus, I’ll be driving against traffic leaving Houston for the first time since moving here. Ha! I have been sick and I may or may not have binge watched three seasons of Law and Order: SVU. (I totally did.) I’ve also consumed upwards of

Thank you to everyone who braved the rain to make it out tonight! In theory we’re going to get a fun pummeling again tonight. So uh, be safe. Don’t drown, turn around! (I think that’s the cute cheer the Texas Highway Department has come up with.) Fun question I just got: Would you have laughed if we were “Morgan Freeman’s Semen Demon”? The answer, of course, was yes. Ladies and gentlemen, if you are ever wondering if a team name is too weird or vulgar, the answer is almost certainly, “No!” Just, keep that in mind. Also, check out like every Suburban Legends Disney cover. They are freaking awesome. And I don’t even like Disney tunes.

Thank you all for coming out tonight, and super thank you to 8th Wonder for providing those brewery beer passes! I help everyone enjoys their visits! I have but one thing to say, and that’s, “Shame on you all!” I blog every week. Most of the time a Survivor season is airing and so I’m blogging about Survivor. I love Survivor. It’s all I talk about on my blog for months and months each year. And yet! And yet! We get a Survivor related question and NONE OF YOU KNEW IT!!! Jeff Probst. Remember that name. Seriously! He hosts the show. Maybe remember the name “Boston Rob”. I dunno. Richard Hatch is a good one to know in a pinch. Perhaps

Can't Feel My Toes

Thank you all for coming out this week! First quiz of 2017, and out of the gate hot. Or cold. Freezing? Did it get below 32, or does it just feel that way when I step outside? Can’t tell. I think in Texas water freezes at about 50 anyway, so let’s go freezing. Okay, so super congrats to Dick Wolf. They just won a set of passes to get into the Deep Eddy Vodka tent at the rodeo cookoff happening next month. Thank you to Republic Distribution for that! Our next sponsor is 8th Wonder Brewery. That drawing goes down on March 1st. Don’t forget, you get a raffle ticket every week just for playing, and you get extra entries for placing in the top three

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Last quiz of 2016 and it kicked off with Debbie Reynolds dying. That In Memorandum Oscars segment is going to take forever. Presumably they’ll score it to “In a Godda Divida”. Or maybe “This is the Song that Never Ends.” Glorious. I’m playing Sum 41’s “Fat Lip” and someone in here is singing along at the top of their lungs. But only about every fourth word. It’s two girls sitting at the bar, screaming into their phone “selfie side up”. I love it. Lots of head bobbing. If you two read this, please never stop enjoying life.

Thank you all for coming out! So, Houston got cold and then it got FUCKING HOT. And yet most of you clearly decided to go all in on the coat and sweater thing, because despite being over 70 outside, and humid like a mofo, I still saw winter weather gear. Welcome to Texas. Ha! I say this, I call 55 freezing. I’m also typing this in a sweater. Just that usually I’m the only person so inappropriately dressed. Okay, so one more quiz before the big Republic drawing on January 4th. So make sure you show up and get those raffle tickets. Also, make sure you escape the family and drink up.

Kitten Caboodles Would Rock
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We’re winding down 2016. TV is winding down 2016. Tonight is the Survivor season finale. Let’s do predictions tonight. First: The older guy whose name starts with a B has zero shot of winning. In fact, his only shot at even getting a vote comes from Sunday. I don’t know that anyone still in would even be willing to lug his dead weight ass to the end except for Adam and Jay. David and Hannah are too high on their own farts to do anything even close to logical. I have no idea what Ken Doll is doing. Second: If Jay is in the final three, he beats anyone. Handed-ly. He has got to win out immunity in order to make this happen

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We’re having a Houston blizzard down here. (You know, like 55 degrees outside.) I can tell I’ve been in this city for too long because I’m freezing. Or I feel like I’m freezing anyway. I’ve been wimpified. BOO! Oh well. I’m sort of bored right now, so not too much to talk about. Still annoyed with the Walking Dead. Still enamoured with Z-Nation. Survivor is picking up speed in a big way. Drawing rocks. Playing all the idols. Fun, fun, fun. I’m going through SVU withdrawl right now.
