I started last night at Itta Bena, where bartender Sam was working. Hang on, let’s post a pic of Sam:
There ya go. That’s Sam. You may remember that Sam started a trivia team last year called “Suck My Blog” in an attempt to take down the greatest team in the history of trivia, the Rapscallions. He failed miserably. Then a couple of weeks ago he and a partner lost a pool game to Best Pool Partner Ever Lauren and me. Well, last night Sam got to lose to me yet again. He was playing with my phone and found a game called Bubble Breaker he’s played before. I haven’t played it in more than a year. So he challenged me. Final score:
After leaving Itta Bena, I had safety patrol run a few bums off, then headed to the Saucer where I had to scan my UFO card one last time to see this on the screen:
Yep. It’s confirmed. I’m done. They gave me a form to fill out to plan my plate party. Here’s what the form looks like:
I requested a special slogan on my plate instead of a city, and the manager said no problem. If you’ve ever read this blog you’ve seen the slogan. If you can’t figure out what it is, I’ll post a pic of the new plate within the next 7 days after I have my plate party.
So I have a $100 bar tab to spend on the plate party, right? Wrong. The Rapscallions came into last night with $275 in trivia winnings, to be spent that night too. So we have $375 to spend, right? Wrong. We added even more last night, as the Rapscallions dominated the third round and picked up yet another victory and $50 first-place gift certificate. So our tab for the party is an enormous $425.
After trivia I rolled on to Calhoun’s. They sell cans of Old Style for $1 a can during Cubs games, and after the game some of the people there decided to shotgun beers. Here are some pics of that:
And here are some pics of what happened after the shotgunning was done:
Plans for today: For the first time in over two months, I do NOT have to go to the Saucer. Meeting a friend for mojitos on Sauces’ patio today after work.
Weird not to have a beer report to type. Possibly another post around lunchtime.
