Most likely not. The wife has a work function that goes late and I may have to join her.

Whether you feel that is a plus or a minus is up to you.

Les and Doreens does trivia on Thursday night now. I prefer it to Atlantis, never been to O'reillys for trivia.

Well, no offense Kenzo, but if its gonna be me, you, and miglarsh, I might as well get an extra nights sleep and prep for Friday HH at Murphs. I can't miss that one. Lets see how the rest of the crowd feels.

i was supposed to make beer tonight, but it looks like we're not doing that anymore. i'll probably be in o'r's at some point regardless. i can't watch meredith play poker for five hours.

Well I guess it's canceled then. Pfft.

Our team name tonight: "I Blew Ivy Carter"

Love is a Mattlefield.

sdm's picture

People actually showed up?

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

Matt Benatar's picture

We went to National Mechanics because a friend was in town. The host had good questions but his microphone presence left something to be desired. He gave best team name award to "Jello Jigglers," which was the least interesting name, but maybe that's his little joke to himself. Decent science and music questions, though.

Love is a Mattlefield.

sdm's picture

That place is kind of big to do quizzo, no? Maybe I'm just remembering it as being larger than it really is.

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

Matt Benatar's picture

Actually, just last night, I said "I remember this place being bigger." It's big, but not huge, and it was crowded enough that we couldn't get a table until the last round, despite all of our staring at two oblivious women* taking up a booth and not ordering anything or playing quizzo for two hours.
*The gender of one was a topic of much debate, but I'm settling on woman.

Love is a Mattlefield.

There were three people at OR's last night. Kate, Walt, and Irish John.
I think we're lacking in the committment department.

Yeah, you got a point. Its a Catch 22 situation maybe. No money to invest in beer or whiskey, until people show up. No one to show up until you invest in beer or whiskey.
I might add, the food has taken a nose dive as well. Last time we got the mac and cheese, not so much cheese, and the crab was not the good lump meat it was the first time. It had the consistency of tuna fish.

Do not put this on us. I've been pumping money into that bar steadily for the past year. They've got to keep up their end of the bargain too.

I don't know how that guy is surviving. I really thought there was more going on there. I didn't mean to imply it was anyone's fault that its dying a slow death, either the quiz or the bar. If that happens, oh well. It's not like there aren't other options.

They're actually about to renovate. We do hang out there outside of quizzo, you're welcome to as well.

Do they have any alcohol or are they taking a page out of KFN's playbook and going BYOB?

Anyone else? Any Jamesons yet?

the jameson has been replaced, as far as the beer goes i believe they have the ppa, newbold, rowhouse, yards pale ale, miller lite, pb and the brawler? don't think the shackamaximum has been replaced, but they do have cans of budweiser. the dogfish 60 minute bottles are not restocked.

They lost their license...so I heard.

The first and only time I've been there the bartender and I had to communicate via writing on the back of receipt paper because of how loud the awful music in there was. He wound up getting us full refunds for our covers though.

from KFN's Twitter Feed (found on their website):

Er, for the many of you who apparently still don't know, we are definitely NOT shut down. Come hang out with us this week! 17 Jan

Yes, we have a show tonight. Yes, its BYOB and its 21+. www.facebook.com/events/14713337206… 4 Jan

We know they were still open...they're just not a "bar" anymore?

KFN got their license back last week but they were operating for a little while as BYOB for shows only. Not sure what happened there but it was an interesting business model.

BTW, probably out for tonight. If Shackamaximum hasn't been replaced, I'm going to assume the Guinness is still kicked as well. No stout - I'm out.

Quizzo sounds very appealing, but I'm already in my pajamas.

Query: Come out in pajama pants?

Follow up: Is it a disgrace that a lawyer would be seen in public in pajama pants, or does this make me more "appealing"?

I will try. Officially no wholesalers are getting it until mid-February, and then another delivery a month later. My hope is that by going straight to the source while wearing a low cut top I'll luck out.

OReillys Kensington
6-8 $2 Craft Draughts and $2 shots of Jameson.
No wonder they don't have any left by Wednesday.

I feel like he does a similar special on Wednesdays as well that ends just as we're all getting there.

they weren't doing the $2 crafts for a while. glad to see it's back. they need to replace that shackamximum keg, pbc doesn't have anymore. it's time to forge onwards. they used to carry a troeg's tap. i miss it.

I'm going to Troegs this afternoon to try and get a case of Nugget Nectar a bit early.

oooooh, can you get us a case, too?

I will try. Officially no wholesalers are getting it until mid-February, and then another delivery a month later. My hope is that by going straight to the source while wearing a low cut top I'll luck out.

showing that one curly, sexy chest hair will definitely help.

No. I'm sure it tastes better now that it's not made from the swill of the Latrobe River and runoff from the Latrobe Paper Factory, but the damage has been done. We were a Pabst family, but society has ruined that beer for me for the most part.

Is this happening tonight?

Signs point to no. Most of us regulars can't make it.

The nails has been put in that coffin.
Just talked to John, he called Walt, the quiz at O'R's is officially dead, starting tonight.
(Hope anyone who had a certificate used it!)

OK, John's kicked out of OR's, time to select a new place.

You guys already know where I want to have it.

I was gonna pm you, Kenzo. I spoke to John just tonight about Lukes. Apparently the owners daughter came on the site, and said her mom was up for doing something different. John would love a place in the hood, now that he's a local. I told John I would give him the location, and he should stop around and visit it. He will now have Wednesday nights free.
Just as a side note....
Irish John will be doing a quiz on Monday nights at the Devils Alley, I believe its around 19th & Chestnut.
If your in the area on Mondays.

Next time I see Terri I'll ask her if she's up for it. I think she'd be OK to host it, John just needs to go over there and ask. I know you're anti-Facebook but is John on Facebook?

Yes. He's on there. I already sent him an email with the location and told him to stop in and check it out.

Just for the record, John pulled the plug. He wasn't kicked out.

Looking forward to the abuse next week at Atlantis. Probably won't be anyone saving me a seat at the bar for quite awhile.

Yeah - most likely we're going to have trouble getting seats. And I'll be late since FNA's membership meeting is that night.

As usual, I will do my best to get there early, however.......you know the deal.

Oh well. Guess I'll just have to spend my Wednesday nights at home enjoying new episodes of South Park.
