Poker at Bardog tonight, Cinco de Mayo week parties

Bardog Tavern is having a poker tournament in their Underdog Room tonight.  No fee to enter, starts at 7:30, substantial prizes.  It’s being run by Gut Shot Poker and will feature felt tables, blind structures, and regular breaks.  Call (901) 275-8752 to reserve your seat.

Learning about more Mexican-themed parties the first week of May… here’s the list…

Calhoun’s is having a Dos de Mayo party on May 2.  You can participate in a pepper eating contest, and drink Corona and Dos Equis for the chance to win prizes and the party pinata.

The South Main Association will have a Cuatro de Mayo party on May 4.  I’ve posted this one before… it will be at the Arcade Restaurant starting at 5:30.  Free for SMA members, or you can join at the door if you’re not a member.

Bardog will have a Cinco de Mayo party on Tuesday, May 5.  $3 Mezcal, $3 Corona longnecks, $4 Cabo Wabo shots, T-shirt and hat giveaways, air guitar contest with an electric guitar and other prizes.  Fiesta begins at 5:30, contest at 6:30.

Kooky Canuck will also have a party on May 5.  $2 34 oz. margaritas, $3 Corona, $4 1800 shots.  According to their Facebook listing, this is an all-day event, so if you’re not working Tuesday, looks like you can start drinking at 11 AM.

Silly Goose also plans a big Cinco de Mayo bash but is still working out the drink specials.  I know that they’re thinking about doing a burrito eating contest.  Details to come.

Congrats to my trivia team the Rapscallions on a first-place win, bringing our total toward our next party to $160.  We edged out the Weiss Asses with the 30-point bonus question:  Name the original members of the Jackson 5.  They were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael.  Younger brother Randy took Jermaine’s place when the group jumped to CBS Records and Jermaine remained at Motown.

More blog-worthy stuff in the Inbox, so if I get time I’ll do another post at lunch.
