Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Word on the street is that the bonus prizes have been Rogue’d up. Tonight you all got treated to a surprise Rogue burger! I’m jealous! No idea if that was a one off thing or not, but the best way to find out is to come back next week. I’m running out of shows to talk about. Sunday was the “Once Upon a Time” season finale. OMG! Everyone got to come back from the dead. Magical love kisses everywhere. We even got to relive Charming bringing Snow back from the dead. It was nice seeing Jennifer Morrison get to run around being all, “Kid, you cray, cray. Snow White ain’t real,” for a change. And bless the

Better Bedtime
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! The Rockets are sort of wrecking our regular gig, right? I’ll say it, I’m really looking forward to them losing. I’m not a Spurs fan, but I am a fan of quiz. You know. Okay, so I’m running out of shows to talk about. I’ll say this, I’m super looking forward to new episodes of the show “Episodes”. It’s a Showtime spoof series about a pair of British sitcom writers whose British show is picked up by a US network and then ruined by executives. Also, Matt LeBlanc plays himself. But like the absolute most douche-baggiest version of himself imaginable. It’s god damn glorious. Oh, also,

Prize Day
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Rockets moved on in the playoffs. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for potential quiz conflicts. Also, congrats to the winners of tonight’s grand prize. You guys walked away with a super nice neon sign, some drinkables, and a swag bag. Oh, and brewery passes! Sweet. I said it on the mic, but our next sponsor is Rogue Brewery. Rogue happens to be my absolute favorite brewery. OMG, go get a bottle of their double chocolate stout. And if you ever get the chance to have it on tap, divine. Seriously. What else? Once Upon a Time didn’t bring anyone back and there is now a magical stick. Charming is acting a fool and it makes no damn

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. This blog is mostly a series of observations. Grand Prize Budweiser drawing is next week. DO NOT FORGET YOUR TICKETS. Why is the new season of 24 called 24 instead of 12? It’s only 12 hours long. This is confusing and awkward. Why are there no 24 hour pizza joints in this town? I keep weird hours and want a midnight slice. Tonight. I have two bikes, an elliptical, and a gym membership. My ankle is still fubar’d but I think I finally see an end in sight. Should be back in my regular clothes by mid-June. Did I mention the drawing is next week? LOL at all the United Airlines names. To anyone reading

Sandra?
Rainbow Brite

Okay, so you know I rush blogs when Survivor is in season, and Survivor is in Season. So how about a few predictions? We know there is a twist coming tonight in the form of a returning castaway. Interestingly, we don’t know for certain that it’s a previously evicted castaway. I hope so hard that like Boston Rob jumps off a ship. Instead I bet the house we see Colby or Joe coming back. Unclear which. I have zero patience for Beastmode Cowboy, so I’m hoping it’s Joe. I also think he got supremely boned and if nothing else, he should be let back in on principle. Sandra’s not going to go home. Again. If Debbie’s tribe goes to council,

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Tornados! So I woke up this morning to a very loud, very piercing alarm. And my apartment shaking. And wind blowing things. Not people. Just leaves and stuff. There was a bamboo branch sticking out of a manhole on my street. That was weird. And dangerous. Probably. No electricity for a while. Or internet. The no internet was the worst. Yeah. Okay, so we are halfway through our 8 week Budweiser sponsor season. Don’t forget. The next drawing is April 19th. One entry for every week you play. Extra entries for the top teams. Easy peasy. Okay. I’m going to go watch Survivor and SVU. Toodels.

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

Hair Dryers
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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
