Next Week: Shiner
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! The main point of this message is to relay information to you darlings. The information? A most friendly of friendly reminders that next week is the Shiner drawing. For those of you not in the know, every 8 weeks we do a drawing here. The drawings are sponsored by Texas breweries, and Shiner is sponsoring the current drawing. You get an entry every week you play, and extra entries for placing in the top three. Past drawings saw Spindle Tap give a winning team a party for them and friends AT THE BREWERY. Karbach and Buffalo Bayou have both rolled in with baskets full of goodies. 8th Wonder sent a team to the brewery loaded up with shirts

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.

Fear Fear the Walking Dead
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. We took a bit of a dip the last two weeks with weather stuffs, but you all showed up in full force. Yay! I have a question. Is *anyone* at all watching Fear the Walking Dead? I am. I am finding it damn well near impossible to get into the show. Like, I was seriously rooting for Jesse McCartney to shoot the boat up, kill the entire cast, and take over, basically rebooting the entire series. When he died, I was rooting for zombie Jesse McCartney to chew everyone’s faces off. Like, there isn’t a single likeable character on the entire show. At all! Dunno why I keep watching it. Like I still tune into Once Upon a Time even though that show has

Injury List
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! This has been a weird week for me. I’ve been doing a LOT of sleeping. Like a LOT. I think it’s the medication I’m taking for my ankle. You might have noticed that I’m out of my boot. That might change next week. Ha! My foot is starting to swell up which I assume is due to the slight twisting from walking around on it without any stability. Who knows. A doctor probably would. I probably should go back to see another doctor. Maybe a specialist? Do any of you know a good bone doctor? Are any of you really good at pretending to be doctors and want to tell me in a very convincing way that my foot doesn’t need to be hacked off? Tonight’s

The Best Tacos
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! I had to miss last week, but that will be the last night I have to miss for quite some time. (Forever if I can help it, but the way I’ve been breaking/bending/chipping bones I make no promises. Boo!) So I don’t brag on the food here nearly often enough, but I’m going to tonight. If you follow Little J’s on Facebook then you saw that they recently won some “best of” awards at various food and drink competitions. In particular the kitchen won a “best taco” award and the bartenders won a “best Bloody Mary” award. I assume that the truffle fries have won like every award ever, because they

Katie needed a break from you people because you make her work too hard.  It is a tough job to tally up so many points.  You all rocked the quiz last night, everyone scored better than 60 and we had 5 teams at better than 80!  Are you always so smart or was quiz just that easy?  In addition to a fun and competitive quiz, we also raised a lot of money to fight leukemia.  You are as generous as you are intelligent.  A big shout out to everyone who donated last night. We tested you on everything from random knowledge, current events, ancient laziness, and "But"'s to bitter herbs and disasters. Happy Holiblaze took home first and Smokin' a Little J for

Busted Foot
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out last night! Some (all?) of you likely noticed that I am (again) down a foot. Since several of you asked, and I anticipate several more asking, I’ll go on and explain things here. First, yes, this is my other foot. No, my left foot is not totally better, but it’s officially “my good foot” given the current state of foot affairs. Second, no, I don’t have an exciting story. Buuuttttt…. Third, yes, I do have stupid story. I was playing Fallout 4 at 2:30am after quiz last week (like I do every Wednesday I don’t sing karaoke). Unlike every other Wednesday, last Wednesday a gigantic fucking bug flew out

Up Next: Shiner!
Rainbow Brite

Yo yo yo… ho? Ho? Ho? I don’t’ know. Okay, so last week was Buffalo Bayou drawing week. I announced that our next drawing is going to be sponsored by Shiner, so you can expect something awesome and big, again. I say it every time we kick off another brew season, so it’s time for me to say it now. Every 8 weeks at Little J’s we do a drawing. The drawings are sponsored by breweries. You get an entry to win the drawing just by showing up to play. You get extra entries if you place in the top three teams for a night. You must be present to win. The next drawing is going to be May 30th, so hang on to your tickets, show up often, and maybe you’ll win

Yay for Free Things!
Swagu

Thanks for having me once again at Little J’s! We drank, we won shit, we were merry. All month y’all have been collecting raffle tickets to win a gift basket courtesy of Buffalo Bayou, and the raffle finally took place yesterday. But first I had some pesky questions to get through. It is the last week of March, and to celebrate our round 1 covered things that happened the last week of March. Question six of this round reminded us that Fergie (a) was a thing (b) was born on March 27th (c) made a song called Glamorous that is not as good as Fergilicious but it still should be added to my playlist. Lady GaGa has done a lot of wild things in her day, but

Drawing is NEXT WEEK!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out this week! The weather continues to suck balls. Gigantic, sweaty, dank ass balls. It’s okay. I’m certain this shit will clear up and we can get back to making use of our lovely patio again. Fucking better… But yeah. So next week we’re doing the big drawing. Buffalo Bayou will be here with the grand prize, and you need to be present to win. Remember, you’ve been getting entries each week just for showing up. You’ve been getting extra entries for winning. So come on in and maybe you’ll win something sweet! See you then!

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We ain’t no Irish bar, but you came out the eve of “Americans get drunk in the name of the Irish” Day. I appreciate that. Muchos grassy ass. Dunno. I’m distracted. I need to know who got voted off the Survivor island. I need to know if Daryl makes it out of the back half of Season 6 alive. I need to know if Olivia Benson gets her job back. So many worries! So many uncertainties. I DO NOT DO WELL UNDER UNCERTAINTY!!!! I’m going to stop typing so that I can go remedy some of my uncertainty by watching some tv. Until next week!

That Prize We Do
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. We’ve been up against the rodeo two weeks in a row and this week rain, but we still hit double digits, so I’m totes-be-dotes otay with that. Have I told you lately that Buffalo Bayou loves you (for the next 8 weeks)? That’s right, our 8 week drawing is being sponsored by Buffalo Bayou this go around. You know the drill. But if you don’t, the drill is simple. Every 8 weeks we do a drawing for a brewery prize. To win the drawing you have to have little red tickets. To get those little red tickets you just have to show the fuck up. Each time you show up you get a red ticket. Each time you win first, second, or third, you get 3, 2,

Thank you Little J's for letting me be your QM tonight! You people are nice and don't smell as funny as I thought. And thank you Cristina for bringing the magic with your scorekeeping abilities! You'll see her again as long as you keep showing up.   Quiz kicked off with 8 quick questions about Italy. You got to hear my impression of Michael Caine saying Michael Caine. It was awful but I give myself an A+ for chutspah. The next round was the audio round with songs. I liked that.   Sometimes we switch things up at GWD and round 3 was one of them.

Limericks! (Thank you Buffalo Bayou!)
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. You all know that Buffalo Bayou is sponsoring the drawing this “season”. To get you all excited the lovely folks at Buffalo Bayou dropped out a fist full of brewery passes. I made you work for them. You had to write limericks that incorporated the name of any of the 3 BB beers Little J’s has on tap, White Raz, 1836, and More Cowbell. This is a snapshot of what you all turned in: Now That’s What I Call boner Jamz (winners): A girl was drinking White Raz /// She did so with much Pizzaz // She drank one too many // And woke up with Kenny // “Plan B” is now something she has.

Not a Single Boutros Boutros-Ghali Team Name
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! So many people! I love you all each. Even though you all have no fucking idea where any country is. At all. Except maybe the USA. Maybe. Next week I’m trying to find a globe to bring in so you all can study between rounds. I think we need that here. I do. It was a bizarre evening. We had bingo guy. He shouted bingo. Often. I don’t think he understood what was going on. Or he was really drunk. Either way, he seemed to be enjoying life, so rock on funky monkey. Ha! We had the team convinced Nancy Reagan was in an office holding positing in a war between the US and Argentina. That was fun. Some of you think Rehnquist is still in office.

Seriously, the risk of winning $10,000 should be enough to pull even the most boring of humans out of their human cave for the weekend. And seriously, Eugene Mirman. Come the fuck on. Too good to be true. Okay, so last week was the Spindletap Brewery giveaway. This week we announced Buffalo Bayou will be sponsoring the next 8 week run. The next drawing is March 30th.

Thank you all for coming out tonight. We had our big SpindleTap Brewery drawing today and one lucky team walked away with a party courtesy the brewery. THAT COULD BE YOU!

You get extra entries for the top three places. You show up on March 30th. We’ll be announcing the brewery we’re partnering with next week. So do NOT miss next week. Or any week really. At all.
