Advertising school tells me that social media posts with pictures attached get XX% more attention and response than text only. So here's a pic of Oscar Wilde's gravesite I took at Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. You can't kiss it anymore because they have glass around now it but *ICKY* anyway. Two Port City Trivia events - one tonight and one tomorrow - one private and one open to the public - I hope to see you but I understand if I don't. Bisous a tous!

Thank you everyone who came out to trivia tonight at Blossoms Restaurant at Magnolia Greens Golf Club. I want you to meet Chef Anthony. If there is a kinder, more conscientious, sweeter human being in the world I have yet to meet them and man can he cook! Go see for yourself sometime. I miss being the trivia guy so much so thank you all and I hope to see you again soon!

Just like old times! Lovely seeing old friends and making new ones. I will let you know on Facebook if and when there are more events that are open to the general public. Here's a stumper question for some: Round 2, Question number FIFTEEN! As of today, who is the highest paid defensive player in the NFL? πŸ™‹πŸ˜‚πŸ€˜

Happy Labor Day Weekend! Or as we used call it around here, "The Last Weekend of Tourist Season." Raise your hand if you've been here long enough to remember when the only time traffic would back up from the light at College/Oleander near Jimbo's all the way back to Long Leaf Mall would be Sundays and holidays during tourist season. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ #infrastructurefail

Excited to have a couple private trivias on the books for next Wednesday/Thursday - the categories are -
1. Dogs
2. Dutch Describes Reality Shows and Stars
3. Food
4. Chemistry
5. College Mascots
6. General Knowledge

As usual - and by usual I mean the time before the never-ending pandemic - I had planned to use the same questions for both nights but if anyone is signed up for both, please let me know. I'm glad to have you at both, I'm just not writing 2 trivia nights unless I have to. Labor Smarter - Not Harder! Labor Day is brought to you by UNIONS BTW. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ. Looking forward to seeing the exclusive club members minus the presence of the hoi polloi, plebs, and rabble *cough* Trubia *cough* this Wednesday and Thursday!

Overheard in the park today. Kid 1 has his arm stretched out but has the phone turned the other way, "I don't like selfies, I like the reverse kind." Kid 2 rolls his eyes, raises one eyebrow and says, "You mean pictures?" Kid 1, "Yeah that." #HappyMonday #LordHelpUs #ReverseSelfie #Whaaat?

Trivia night is my happy place. I love and miss each and every one of you... even King Richard of Trubia Castle. I miss seeing you every week, singing happy birthday to you, and especially making fun of you to your face while you laugh (how I get away with some of the things I say I have NO idea) πŸ˜‚. I do know - it's because it's all in good fun and you know it. Until we meet again, my dear friend, I hope you and yours stay safe and healthy!

Lovely to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones at trivia last night! Big turnout - thank you! The new format is truly the most effective way for this to go smoothly and exactly the way I did it when I rented TheatreNow and hosted my own events before that place closed. The only thing missing was Bernie and Joe's doo w*p group at halftime. Great job to everyone involved! I must say I'm SHOCKED at how few people know about the incredible TV show from the 70s/early 80s called SCTV! We got it on the other dial with all the fuzz on the screen and an antenna in Western Pa out of Canada. Second City is an improv school in Chicago and most of the cast from the original SNL and SCTV and another great show called Fridays went there. These shows were edgy at the time. I'll leave a link. I hope I get to see you all again soon! πŸ€˜πŸ§ πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

I haven't shared anything in a while and I've missed talking to you.

I had a wonderful dinner with The Turtles of Magnolia Greens last night. The Evanses of Delaware, Mr. and Mrs. OctoBob, Mr. and Mrs. OctoRay the Hand Crusher, and Mr. and Mrs. Glenn the Air Force 1 Pilot, and of course, Stan and Maxine were in our thoughts and sweet memories. Lovely people and I miss them and you dearly.

Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet - 2015 Edition

Happy 4th my friend! Hope to be back in your neck of the woods with live trivia again real soon! Until then, here's one from the archives.

Finish this advertising slogan: Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and ___________?

Now go eat a we**ie... or SEVENTY SEVEN of them if you're looking to break the men's world record set earlier today.🌭🌭🌭🌭🌭πŸ₯§βšΎοΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

My Tribe! Here's hoping you had a great Father's day and got to connect with your pops in person, on the phone, over Zoom, or in your fond memories. I'll never forget some of the words my dad shared with me when I was young. They have stuck with me to this day. He said, "Son, a beating is worth a thousand words so I'm not gonna say it again, if you don't settle down, when we get home from this store, you're getting the belt." His words had meaning and provided lasting memories. 🀣 Hope to see you all soon! 🀘 - D

sugarloaf - don't call us, we'll call you

Good Monday morning to you! I hope you're safe, healthy, and feeling fine! Nothing to report except that my chickie was accepted into the Master of Public Health program at the University of Haifa starting in the Fall. It sounded like a great opportunity and we were THIS close to moving there for 18-months but now weez stayin' put for obvious reasons. The last contact I had from management re: trivia was that they will be in touch with me when they're ready to start again. Reminded me of this song from me childhood. Remember this? I saw it on the Midnight Special with Wolfman Jack. Remember THAT?

I miss running into people at Costco like I used to. These are the Veens from Compass Pointe NC and apparently I'm the last to find out that our buddy John fell down and went boom. I spoke to him today and even though he's pretty banged-up he still sounded like he had a smile on his face this big as is always the case with him. No, he didn't wreck the Vette *whew* just a couple knees - usually it's the hip with people his age but... he should make a full recovery and we wish him a speedy one. What a great guy from a neighborhood full of awesome folks!🀘

It looks like they're lifting the restrictions in early June. Now, let he or she who hath never worked a Sunday Brunch after-church crowd with screaming kids, high chairs surrounded by a mountain of thrown food the parents do absolutely zero to stop or clean up after, triple-sat parties of 10 who all want separate checks and somewhere deep in the weeds you gave the wrong change and instead of making money that day you actually owe $37.50 at the end of your shift cast the first stone about β€œlazy” people not rushing back to make $2.01/hr plus no tip because someone at one of your 5 tables didn't get their 7th free sweet tea refill fast enough. Amirite current and former front-of-house staff? When they come back, I ask that you please be extra kind, patient, and generous. πŸ₯³

Before I would catch a beating with the belt from the old man when I was a kid he'd always say, "This is going to hurt me worse than it hurts you" - he was lying. But I'm saying it to you now and I mean it. My friend, I spoke too soon. I thought everyone had signed-off on trivia starting back up but I was mistaken. It's still going to happen but not until restaurants are back open at 100%. As much as I want to get back out there, I completely understand this business decision. The purpose of trivia is to generate business for the restaurants on nights they're normally slow and they're already busy without me right now so we wait. Sorry to get your hopes up, I misunderstood where we were in the process. I PROMISE you that this hurts me wor$e than it hurts you. 🀣

Restaurants struggle to find workers as pandemic eases

Hey I got word from management that they're working on the logistics of getting trivia back at all locations. Until then, if you know anybody with restaurant experience, every restaurant in America is hiring and desperate for help.

Check out this report from our friends at WECT News

https://www.wect.com/2021/03/31/restaurants-struggle-find-workers-pandemic-eases/

Bottom line is we're working on it and we'll be back ASAP. Thanks for your patience.

There are signs up at restaurants all around Wilmington advertising that they are hiring for all positions. Restaurant owners say business is picking up as COVID-19 numbers go down, but they are struggling to hire employees to handle the increased demand.
