Thank You Kindly For Your Votes!

Thank you so much to everyone who cast their ballot for me as Town’s Terrific-est TJ for the BarFly Awards . . . I won! This title means so much to me because it is you people who play the quizzery who awarded it to me. Sorry I didn’t send out a reminder message on Sunday, as I said I would, but the internet service at East Burn pooped out on me, and I had to get to the BarFly Awards already. But rest assured that your vote counts in spirit, even if it didn’t actually make it to the polls! Cedar is also thrilled to have won the Funniest Bartender Award. He really earned it too, with his spectacular, friendly service at Sewickly’s . . . AND with his fig leaf!

You get a bonus quiz this week, folks – tomorrow night (Sat. April 17th), I am hosting a Triviology Fundraiser for PSU Education Abroad (to aid the elderly in Nicaragua). Come to Schmizza Pub & Grub (415 SW Montgomery) for the happy hour prices, and stay for the quizzery, which starts at 6:30. The charge will be $5 per person to play, which of course goes straight to the PSU program. It should be lots o’ fun – there will be karaoke after the trivia! Also, I will be volunteering at theBridgetown Comedy Festival next weekend, which was found by Andy Wood of Dr. Spaceman. Tickets are on sale now, and there are LOTS of interesting comedians on the schedule – I’m most excited about Conan O’Brien’s writing staff!
Oregonians, you may be aware that this year marks the silver anniversary of the local epic action-adventure-romance-comedy-thriller that we like to call The Goonies! In honor of this momentous cinematic masterpiece, I have chosen it as the topic of my next lunar quiz at Peter’s! Mark those calendars for Saturday, May 1st, with 7:00 as go-time. The official 25th anniversary event in Astoria isn’t until June, so there should be no conflict with your adventuring. Meanwhile . . . Never Say Die!

Upcoming special events:
Pooh, Whos & Wild Things (a pub quiz about kid books)
Monday, May 3rd @ 7:00
Ella Street Social Club @ 714 SW 20th Place
