Deep Ellum Brewing Giveaway was TO-DAY!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Another 18+ team week. Is this the new norm? I’m okay if it is! Keep it coming so that I can get me a scorekeeper and work less hard ‘n stuff. Huge thank you/shout-out to Ashley at Deep Ellum Brewing Company for those Astros tickets. (BTW, if you’re ever in Dallas and need to get your quiz on, Deep Ellum has us in their kick-ass taproom once a week. So do that. Or just go there, get some pizza from Serious Pizza and kill a Saturday the best way possible.) So Big Brother status: We’ve got Da, Tiffany, and whoever on the block. Tiffany or Da is going to go the fuck home. I really, really hope that Da goes home. I know that

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.

TWENTY THREE OM-GEE!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! 23 mother fucking teams! Geezus Louizeeus. Or however you spell that. I are unliterate. Not really. I am really wanting tomorrow to hurry up and get here so that I can see who gets the Big Brother boot. (Boo! Big Brexit never caught on as a Twitter hashtag. I TRIED!) I’m not certain who the current noms are because I’m not sure who won the POV. I know that Frank is running Bridgette’s H.O.H. show, and I’m not convinced she realizes she’s there to win. As best I can tell every houseguest under the age of like 28 is there to mindlessly repeat their Instagram and Twitter accounts. When did “Twitter famous”

Inching Closer to the Big Prize
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We had a record three Dick Wolf related team names, including the OG Dick Wolfs.  No Shit Fucks though, but my ego will recover. Ha! We’ve only got a few more weeks before that big Deep Ellum Brewing Company drawing, so make sure you are coming every week to get more entries. And to see me. More importantly to see me. But the chance to win a Deep Ellum swag bag is still pretty freaking awesome. I am currently excited because I’m pretty sure we’re about to see Victor get sent home, home on the Big Brother range. He’s a back door nom, the majority of the house can’t stand him, I can’t stand him. All works.

Venue Meta
Rainbow Brite

Hey, hey, hey... Just knocked out another evening of Geeks Who Drink over here at Little J's Bar. The bar seems to have its own meta. We've got multiple teams now naming themselves after seasoned champs "Dick Wolf", and this was not the first night someone went as "The Shit Fucks". I'm okay with all of this. Granted, a lot of that is vanity… you all are naming yourselves after things I say. I’m special. But also I say it because it’s fun to say, and I strongly encourage everyone to say it. BUT NEVER BE ONE! THAT’S RULE #3! Always. Another

Best Quiz for a Cause Ever
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight for a special edition of Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz! We ran a fundraiser for the Houston Urban Debate League and raised nearly $800 to send kiddos to summer debate camp. There were 30 teams, 26 donated, and the winning team generously put their $130 prize back to the charity. I gave out Mystery Science Theatre 3,000 tickets. Deep Ellum Brewing swag. Gift cards. GOOD FUCKING WILL! Seriously, I’ve done these before, and I’ve never come close to raising the kind of money we raised tonight. 30 teams is huge. And the teams were full. This was theme quiz huge and it went off without a hitch. I hope to see many of your faces back in the future. (But

QFAC For HUDL
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We were down video so you all didn’t get a chance to see the splash screen for the upcoming Quiz for a Cause going down next Wednesday. The quiz benefits the Houston Urban Debate League (HUDL). Google them, they do some great stuff. I debated in high school for a broke-ass school and had to pay my own way to go to tournaments, and couldn’t afford to go to the camps that a lot of kids went to. Camp’s not necessary to do well, but man if it doesn’t make life easier. The extra rounds, the different view points, the ability to do a mountain of research over the summer with access to university-level data bases. It makes a difference.

TV Guide
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. It was another give-away bonanza courtesy Deep Ellum Brewery. Goodness. Nobody will need glassware when this is all said and done. Or shirts, or snapbacks, or stickers, or sunglasses… You get the idea. So we are still several weeks out from new reality tv. (Big Brother.) That leaves me without much to discuss, so how about some binge-tv recommendations? Stuff I’m currently addicted to: Reign. I started watching it because I tend to like royalty period pieces. They tend to have a lot of violence and over the top sub-plots. Loads of yelling and beheadings. This is far tamer than Tudors, which I adored and is available on Netflix,

Swag Overload
Rainbow Brite

Thank you guys for coming out tonight, and a super special thanks to the folks over at Deep Ellum Brewery for all the swag they brought. If you got a fist full of those pins, they’re bitchin’ and I’m jealous. A worse host would pilfer some for herself. I am saint goddamnit. I also have been going to Deep Ellum Brewery for forever (Dallas rocks!) and have more swag than I know what to do with. Ha! To everyone who won a pair of shades, those will come in profoundly handy if you are a river floater like myself. (So will cans of the Dallas Blonde! Seriously, great floatin’ beer.) Oh, and then that other thing. The Disney theme quiz is tomorrow. Don’t forgot

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We had a solid turnout for the Shiner Bock drawing. Dick Wolf walked away the winners. The goodies? A gigantic wooden ice chest with a lock and a ton of Shiner goodies inside. Hopefully they show up with pics for me next week. I will share pics when I have them. As is usual after a drawing, I’d like to take the time to remind everyone about what we do here. Every 8 weeks we run a raffle season. The season is sponsored by a Texas brewery. Each team gets an entry each week they play, just for playing. The top three placing teams all get extra entries. On the 8th week we do a drawing and the winning team gets an armful of swag. I

Next Week: Shiner

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

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

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.

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).

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
