Let The Turkeys Get You Down

November 16, 2018

So … we’ve received all the relatives’ dietary restrictions and I think it’s safe to say that this will be the best gluten-free, carb-free, nut-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, low-fat, low-sulfur, low-protein, low-sodium, kosher, halal, paleo, macrobiotic, vegetarian Thanksgiving ever!

November 22 Trivia Rankings

November 23, 2017

A wonderful pre-Turkey Day triviaganza for a bevy of most excellent Quizlings. Thanks to all who came out to play. Everyone have a great Thanksgiving and we’ll see you next week to cap off NEWBvember!

This week, we learned that narwhals bring out inner Ahab in some folks. We learned that Remember WENN was not a drama. And we learned that there is no such thing as too many cookies.

Plus we said goodbye to a former teen idol…

Now how did your team do? Here are this week’s rankings…

In the Cards

November 27, 2016

 

Moira’s parents gave me a birthday card that read:

 

“Happy Birthday, Son-In-Law!

We’re so glad you met our little girl

And happy for all the things you’ve brought her.

But please understand one thing, Son-In-Law,

We’ll NEVER forgive you for nailing our daughter.”

 

I guess you can say Thanksgiving was kinda awkward around here.

A fun pre-Turkey Day triviaganza. Thanks to the Quizlings who made it out. Thanks for all the hand turkeys. And thanks for taking that hefty Butterball off our hands (seriously, he was beginning to bum out the other poultry).

What did we learn? Something about turkey protuberances, escaping the Nazis (I hate those guys) and how it’s a nice day for a royal wedding.

Hey, can I tell you a secret? There’s more trivia next week. (Okay, not much of a secret but spread the word nonetheless.)

Jake Gives Someone The Bird 56

November 17, 2016

A great night for trivia, Quizlings! Hope you had a chance to enjoy the festivities. If not – good news: we’ll do again next week. And give away a turkey to boot. Don’t stay home with the in-laws you can’t stand – come out to Tomato Jake’s and play trivia!

What’d you miss Wednesday night? If I said supermoons and detective hats and Vanilla Fudge, would that mean anything? Shoulda been there, folks.

Also, remember: it pays to look down occasionally:
