Next Brewery Next Week
Rainbow Brite

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! Like I said, every week you come in and play you get entered to win a sweet, sweet prize courtesy a local brewery. You accumulate tickets over the course of 8 weeks. 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. See you next week!

Big Spindletap Brewery Drawing is NEXT WEEK!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! This was the last night you could earn tickets for the big Spindletap Brewery drawing. This is your second to last head’s up (because I’ll totally remind you again next Wednesday on my facebook page at facebook.com/GWDKatie) that next week I’ll be drawing a raffle ticket and the first ticket to match a team’s stub wins that team a party at the Spindletap Brewery. Excited? You should be! This is easily my favorite prize I’ve given away to date. The bar has been set high for future drawings. I’m sure we’ll come up with something else not to disappoint. Also worth mentioning is that we’ve switched over

Geek Bowl Host Announced!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. If you were paying attention, and I damn hope you were, then you caught the part where I name dropped Eugene Mirman. He’s going to be hosting Geek Bowl this year. Unfamiliar with him? He’s a fucking hilarious stand-up, and voices the Gene (the son) on Bob’s Burgers. It’s worth it to show up and just to see him. I have no clue if he’ll be doing any riffs from the show or any bits of stand up, but I have to imagine he’ll be in top form. Seriously. The preparty is always fun, so there’s that. It’s in Denver if recreational stuff is your jam. It’s not mine, but I love good beer, and there’s plenty

Split Up
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We had 13 very full teams. So full that several of you were DQ’d for having more than six players. Which poses an interesting question. Why in the world don’t you guys split up in to smaller teams so that you can win prizes? I suppose that if with that many people and you aren’t in the top three splitting up isn’t going to help you out much. But maybe if you are changing answers and you kick out the guys who are changing your minds? Maybe? Try it out and inflate my team count. It’ll be fun. Oh, and yeah, sprained my ankle walking out of a 9am class. 3 stairs. Pain. Torn tendon. Stuff.

Come Back Next Year!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Night before New Years Eve and a football game night in Texas…. And you still found time to play quiz. Warms the cockballs. Sincerely, my cockballs are on fire. It might have something to do with that Clap my 6th place team brought into the bar. Something about a Christmas gift? Dunno. Something bad when down over their break. Herpes popped up as an answer a few times. Yeah. Hopefully nothing a little penicillin can’t clear up. And if not, hopefully they have a bod like Derek Jeter, because apparently nooooobody minds sleeping with him, and he’s like totally famous for his crotch rot. Totally. La de dah, la de dee. Something.

Must. Not. Miss.
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. I was m.i.a. last week because I was in New Orleans doing a bit of hustlin’, but I’m back and all is well. (And it’s damn good to be back! Few things make you love Texas more than leaving Texas. Oy!) Okay, so we do that 8 week season drawing thing here. This go around Spindletap Brewery is going to sponsor the prize and it’s a good one. They’re pitching in a party at the brewery for the winning team. Don’t forget, you get a free entry every week you show up to play. You get extra entries for placing in the top three teams. The next drawing is February 3rd, and you do NOT want to miss this. BREWERY

It was an honor to host a quiz for the brilliant geeks at Little J's Bar.  The venue is great, the staff is friendly, tv's everywhere and 8th Wonder Rocketfuel is on tap!  Katie wasn't around but she left me the most detailed set of instructions a sub has ever gotten.  She is a pro, I think it went smoothly.  Today is national librarians day which raises the question, what does the modern librarian do exactly?  I remember what my librarian did when I was a child, she controlled the Dewey Decimal System and checked the books in and out.  But, in today's Google world what is there left for the librarian to do?  "Today's school librarian works with both students

Giveaway!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We did our 8th Wonder raffle and regulars Ma Nah Ma Nah won, so congrats on that! We’ll be doing our next drawing on February 3rd of 2016. Ah! 2016 already! I’ve been hosting here for close to two years. Crazy! Keep it up. In other news, I have a new (to me) car courtesy an asshole who doesn’t understand that the red octagon means “APPLY YOUR FUCKING BREAKS DICKWAD!” And thanks to Geico’s unreasonable thieving policies, I had to pay close to $2K out of pocket for an accident the other driver admitted was 100% his fault (and Geico agreed).

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. The weather took a turn for the cold and shitty, but you brave souls stuck it out. I’ll again remind you all, no quiz next week. Come to Little J’s anyway, but feel free to drink yourself numb in preparation of having to deal with your inlaws on Thursday. No need to be sober enough to answer questions. Just drink. Lots. And make sure you come back the first Wednesday of December. That’s when we’ll be doing our big 8th Wonder drawing, and you don’t want to miss that. Now, I must run home and make sure Spencer didn’t get voted off the damn island tonight. Losing Savage last week was a huge blow. (Really,

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. This will serve as a reminder post to those of you were here tonight, and a heads up to those of you who weren’t, but who might be creepin’ at a distance. The 8th Wonder drawing set for November 25th (night before Thanksgiving) is being bumped to December 2nd. That’s the first Wednesday in December. Reason? No quiz the night before Thanksgiving. Which works out great for me, because I was going to have to find a sub. Now I don’t. See, I’m from Dallas (a four letter word in these parts) and if I don’t drive home, my parents assume I’ve died a horrible death. So I drive up there,

What Happens Next?
Rainbow Brite

I love you all dearly, and I thank you all for coming out, but you must understand exactly how stressing it is to host on Wednesday nights. You see, last week Terry was pulled from Survivor during our little quiz. Spencer was almost evicted, and was only spared because Kass can’t be trusted by anyone. Ever. Kass. Kass held Spencer’s fate in her hands. That makes me a nervous wreck! Tonight there is a merge. With any luck Abi and Kass will be the first and second players out. I now must dash home and start hitting refresh on the CBS homepage until the episode goes up. This process typically takes until about 11:30. The most painful hour and a half each week is the hour and a half

Texans Tickets On the Free
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Tonight featured the most awesome plot twist in the history of my hosting pub quiz. Right after round 8 my birthday girl team came up to let me know that they had a spare pair of Texans football tickets and that I could give them out to a team. So of course I did what I always do when faced with extra goodies to give away… I made you all write a poem J Many Bothans Died may have placed last of all teams playing all 8 rounds, but I’d say they more than made up for it when they wrote the birthday girl’s favorite poem and snagged that spare pair of tickets. Congrats guys! I’m jealous. (Well… maybe. Do we have a quarterback

Never Trust a Drunk
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! The Children’s Art Museum of Houston made an unexpected appearance and raffled off, among other things, some botox treatments. A lovely gentleman who appeared to be about 25 won those. I have no clue what lines he plans on getting filled, but I’m 100% interested in getting a report back on that. Also, 8th Wonder was in the house. They’re sponsoring this 8 week raffle, and I gave a bunch of pennants and a shirt out. The prizes went to folks who wrote 8th Wonder themed limericks. So, I should know by now that you all can NOT be trusted. I had a ton of submissions from you all. Most of them hardly qualified as limericks.

RIP NYC
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Sports are happening. The Cubs are playing. I want them to lose. But not because I have anything against them, or even because I am rooting for Philly. Rather, let’s face it, the charm of the Cubbies is the fact that they are perennial losers. They’re the underdogs. And the quickest way to lose that childlike under-dog charm is to go deep into the World Series playoffs. Ya know what I mean? So yeah, I want them to lose to preserve their charm. In unrelated news, I’m beyond sad that the Yankees missed the playoffs. I want a pinstripe World Series again. It’s been too long. But more than anything, I get frustrated that they keep not
