A Piece of the Action

December 9, 2017

At the office, whenever there’s a birthday card to be signed for a co-worker, I always write the same thing: I know it’s you who’s been stealing stuff from the supply cabinet but I won’t tell anyone if you give me the biggest slice of cake. Surprisingly, I’m right most of the time. And I really get some amazing slices of cake out of it.

The Dog Days Are Here!

September 26, 2017

This Wednesday, we’re wrapping up Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia’s 8th Anniversary celebration with a raffle – and it’s still not too late to get in on the fun!

The raffle will be for, among other things, a free night’s stay for two at a nifty Durham hotel. You get one raffle ticket just for playing (one per week). The raffle is only open to Quizlings 18 and above due to the nature of the prize.

You can also pick up extra raffle tickets for bringing a newbie, posting a flier to our trivia night and donating a new dog toy for our canine pals. How many extra raffle tickets? Two per item! And there’s no limit this week on how many of each you can claim. Seriously! Bring 56 newbies and get 112 extra raffle tickets! Post 139 fliers (and show me proof) and get 278 extra raffle tickets! Bring 3,861 new dog toys to donate to the pooches on the patio and get 7,722 extra – and I’m out of tickets. Crap, I didn’t think this through. Well, let’s cap them all “within reason” and see how it goes, okay? But the main idea is to bring someone who’s never played trivia at Jake’s before, post fliers to alert the unfamiliar and bring new dog toys because there’s nothing like seeing a dog smile.

Spread the word! Bring your friends! Bring your enemies (best to keep them closer)! Just help us celebrate 8 years of fantastic trivia at Tomato Jake’s Pizzeria!

Party All The Time

August 28, 2017

Hypothetical question here but say you’re invited to a middle school classmate’s birthday party. You don’t particularly care for the guy but you feel compelled to attend because he’s a friend of a friend. When is it polite to leave said gathering? After you drop off the gift? After cake and ice cream? is served After the pinata and pin the tail on the donkey? After his mom, Mrs. Misenheimer, having a few Sea Breezes inside of her, takes you upstairs and makes you a man?

I’m curious because now that I look back on the whole bizarre incident I’m beginning to feel a little guilty for skipping out early and I’m thinking I should’ve at least stayed for the opening of the gifts.

Memory Loss Leader

January 20, 2017

For some reason I have no recollection of my 24th birthday. It’s not like I was drunk and forgot. I just have no memory of it. No celebrations, no parties, no cards, nothing. I think I may have accidentally skipped it. Which would technically make me a year younger, I think. And that’s a plus.
