Close match last week! The Canal Rats took the lead with a strong 74 points, closely followed by The Gooders with 71 points and E=MC Awesome at 70 points.
Great job by all teams, and I would like to take this time to formally welcome Team Cheaters, and say thanks for staying for the whole shoe last week.
I would like to, but I can’t.
Because I didn’t ask them for their email address.
Because I may be an idiot.
(If you have an opinion on this issue, either pro or con, please keep it to yourself, but please remind me to send the email sign up sheet around the room before we get started. As always, feel free to spread the word around about the Tuesday show!)
The scores on the website are not the final showings – LastCallUSA Central Command is still waiting on a few DJs to forward scores in to them.
However, as of this morning, we did have one team in the Top 20, and another just under that.
You probably know who you are, so keep your fingers crossed.
(You are probably on the LastCallUSA distribution, but I’ll send out a special NON-TUESDAY bulletin to alert you when I have the final standings, just in case.)
The Championship is at Spectators in Chesterland. It’s a Saturday - August 11th at noon.
I am not sure who is hosting, but I do know it is not me.
I am trying to clear my schedule to make sure I can attend.
More info as I have it!
I reminded you last week that you can move from the friend-zone to the friends-who-occasionally-share-a-little-sumptin’-sumptin’-(I-am-talking-about-nookie-in-case-I-am-not-clear)-zone with a weekly application of good trivia, bad jokes, and lots of booze.
No word on any success stories, but I’ll share any with the list if you send me one.
As always, you can find hints by going to the Last Call USA website and clicking on the “Hints & News” Link at the bottom of the page.
(Insert lame joke and link to a random website here.)
In the “Trivia” section, there is a list of 7 items. Each is an answer to a quiz question from a Last Call USA bar this week.
(You DO know that we have Trivia EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK**, right? )
One of those items will be an answer for a question I will ask tonight.
This is a pathetically easy way to get at least one answer correct, so please check it every week.
LIGHTHOUSE/OLDE HARBOR INN NEWS:
You can become a fan of The Lighthouse and The Olde Harbor Inn on Facebook.
You know that because I tell you every week.
Did you see last week?
Steve, the owner, declared that I was an expert in Cleveland Indians Baseball from 81-83.
(Truth be told – not so much! )
But I put out a question, and offered a free drink to the first person to get it correct.
No one got it.
BUT THAT IS BECAUSE YOU DID NOT CHECK THE PAGE!
CHECK THE PAGE!
(WHY HAVE YOU NOT BECOME FRIENDS WITH THE LIGHTHOUSE OLDE HARBOR INN? THEY ALWAYS SAY SUCH NICE THINGS ABOUT YOU!!)
Seriously though, go there and do that.
ALSO on the Lighthouse front:
It is almost time for the Annual Portage Lakes Beer Tour !
And you know what that means!
And if you don’t know, go click the link above to find out more. Or just click it here, again: And you know what that means!
Check out the Lightouse’s band schedule.
Did you know:
You can buy Olde Harbor Inn/Lightouse Bar and Grill gift certificates for all your loved ones?
Well you do now!
REMINDER ABOUT THE DRIVE OVER:
You are all big boys and girls. Google it your own darn self.
NEW SHOW ADDED! Redhawk Grille in Painesville will offer TRIVIA every Wednesday at 8:30 pm starting July 18th!
NEW SHOW ADDED! Mardi Gras in Downtown Cleveland will offer TUNES every Wednesday at 6pm beginning August 8th!
Rev. Rob’t Core, esq.
I send this newsletter out each week. Do you care?
I enjoy putting it together, but if you think it is annoying, or just don’t want to get it, please let me know – I’ll take you off my list.
**As I typed last week, our NE Ohio page only has Trivia on some nights – but Last Call runs shows in Cincinnati, Indiana, NY, PA and more. Do you have another favorite bar that you’d like to see run our Trivia show? (Or Name That Tune, or our Buffalo show?) If you send me the following information:
• The name of the bar
• Their phone number
• Their web address
• The name of a contact there
• Your name
I will have someone from Last Call get in touch with them and see if they are a good match.
If the bar signs up, I’ll buy you a drink.
Here is the equation
If (Referral) then (sales call)
If (sales call) then (bar signs up)
If (bar signs up) then (I buy you a drink)
Simple logic, honest!
(If someone can present this in actual formal symbolic logic in a way that is actually correct and makes sense, please respond and I will forward it out.)
SOOPER SEKRIT CONTEST QUESTION:
Crummy prize guaranteed for the first two CORRECT RESPONSES that I get IN PERSON. EMAIL will not count.
Often mistaken for a cast member, this comedian who hosted SNL 8 times in the first 4 years of the show was never actually a member of “The Not-Ready-For Prime-Time-Players” – Who is he?
