Where Does a TJ Play?!?

This here’s a reminder that there is no Triviology tonight – Sewickly’s will have their hands full with St. Patrick’s Day festivities, so I get the night off! I had planned to start my evening by playing That’s So Gay Trivia, but unfortunately, the hilarious hostess Michelle JUST found out that Crush is revamping their space . . . and so, the trivia is no more. I fully expect Michelle to find a new home for her unique brand of quizzery, but in the meantime, where does a gal play trivia in this town on a Tuesday night – any suggestions? We do still have the much anticipated Queers vs. Breeders Trivia Showdown to look forward to, and we’ve finally set the date: Saturday, April 11th. I’m hoping to hold this event at The Spare Room, which served us so well at the Clash of the Trivia Titans – I’ll send you the details as soon as we sort them out.

Tomorrow, I expect you to report to Peter’s 19th Hole at 8:00 for an extra-rad quiz including a picture ID round on the TV. I will not accept hangovers as an excuse for absences, because Peter’s offers up a veritable fruit salad of a bloody mary, and because you will be served by Jackie, who gives you the quick and friendly service that you have NOT come to expect from Portland bartenders.

Thursday, I will have an extra-special guest: Kyle of barflymag.com. He is my newest trivia jockey, though we haven’t yet decided which venue he will grace with his presence. We’re going to get him warmed up at La Merde though – he will co-host with me there this Thursday, and solo host the next. He will bring his “proctor stick,” whatever that is, for the physical challenge. I think he means for said stick to be his trademark prop. Anyway, come check us out – it’ll be loads of fun! And, speaking of La Merde, behold the gal whom you voted Best Bartender 2009:

Melissa’s going to have to get a trophy case installed in the bar!
