Game’s The Same – Just Got More Fierce!

Sunday, April 4th, 2010
Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who nominated me for the BarFly Awards – I happily accept the nomination for Town’s Terrific-est TJ! And congratulations to Cedar of Sewickly’s, who also earned a nod – for Funniest Bartender. Indeed, Cedar is one of the most pleasant, friendly and helpful people I’ve met in Portland – he always has smiles and kind words for everyone at my Tuesday quiz nights. The final voting for the BarFies will be next Sunday (Apr. 11th) at the BarFly party at Mt. Tabor. If you are going to the party, I humbly request your vote. If you don’t have an invitation to the party and want one, you’re in luck! All of us nominees are presented with several extra tickets, and I will be awarding those as bonus prizes at my quizzes in the coming week. If you want to be my friend, let’s hook it up on my Facebook or Twitter page.

It is not only I, but also YOU who could win trophies and glory in the coming days . . . tonight (Apr. 3rd) at Peter’s 19th Hole is my Quiz About Nothing – join me for Seinfeld trivia at 7:00! The Master of You Domain trophy goes to the team who knows the most about the New York Four. Also, this Monday (Apr. 5th) at Ella Street Social ClubMargaret will host The Wire: The Quiz at 7:00. All of you Omar fans know that the game is out there, and it’s play . . . or GET played. Sunday will be a day of rest, as East Burn will be closed for Easter.
