Fire! Out! Out! Out! We were herded outside J.J. Sports Bar in Paranaque, not because the building was about to be razed, but because… Oh well, okay, there is indeed a fire, a fire dancer to be exact, waiting outside to twirl and spit fire to the ooohs and aaahs of the bar regulars. We all stood mesmerized by the performance as fiery streaks of light bloomed through one of Aiport Road’s sidestreets. It was one of my favorite bars’ first anniversary, and it was turning out to be a hot one!
|IT’S A PARTY!|
|DADA & VEICKA, EGGING J.J.’S CROWD|
We arrived at J.J. Sports Bar at around nine in the evening. It was a Saturday and the place was packed to the rafters. People were already having a good time but the night was still young. Hoots mixed with laughter rang throughout the first floor area as the tandem of Dada & Veicka tickled the crowd’s funny bones.
|KARAOKE SESSION IN PROGRESS|
Their brand of humor is definitely not for kids though, as you can probably hear a soothing voice overdubbing an advisory whenever they crack a PG-13 joke; ang programang ito ay rated SPG, striktong patnubay at gabay ng magulang ay kailangan. Maaaring may maseselang tema, lenguahe, karahasan, sekswal… Well, you get the idea.
|THE KISS ME MORE CHALLENGE|
The crowd was pretty game though. Everyone was laughing their heads off, even sometimes, at their expense, lol. The two even set up games for the crowd, although again, the patnubay ng magulang spiel went on cue inside my head as it started. I’ll leave it up to your imagination what the game was about.
|DISCOUNTED BEER NIGHTS AT J.J.’S|
Since space was already at a premium at the ground floor, we headed to the second floor of J.J.’s to have our beer. And since it was their anniversary, they introduced a beer bucket promo of seven bottles plus your choice of pulutan for only Php488.00. Totally not bad!
Together with a good-sized platter of nachos, which was really superb by the way, we drank our way through buckets of, what else, but Red Horse beer.
|JAMMING SESSION WITH THE GUYS FROM ACOUSTIC NOTE|
And not to be outdone by the stand-up comedians below, the second floor came alive as Acoustic Note took the stage. Together they belted out a few classics and contemporary songs before being joined onstage by jammers. This duo won the J.J. Sports Bar’s Acoustic Nights sessions before with their musical prowess and witty in-betweeners, and now they’re one of J.J.’s regular performers.
|HERE COMES THE PLAYGIRLS!|
In between drinks, I was checking out the happening at the main floor of J.J. Sports Bar. And on one visit, I was surprised as I heard hoots and cheers from the crowd, the Playgirls have taken hold of the stage!
|PLAYGIRL CARLA MAKING THE NIGHT A LITTLE BIT HOTTER|
Now I’m not really familiar with these gals, but they sure do know how to make a night sizzle! It was surprising that they were a hit not only with the boys, but with the girls in the crowd as well. They did their raunchy numbers, played some dirty games with the crowd—to everyone’s hoots and catcalls—before continuing their performance at the second floor stage.
|SHAKING IT ON THE DANCEFLOOR|
The excitement level at J.J. Sports Bar pumped a few notches higher; these Playgirls really know how to whet the crowd’s appetite! Again. Ting ting ting ting ting: Ang programang ito ay rated SPG, striktong patnubay… It was indeed a fiery first anniversary for J.J. Sports Bar!
