Saturday, July 14: The Arrangement @ T-Bonz Grille & Taphouse from 7:00pm to 11:00pm

A Brief History of The Arrangement’s Appearances at MTV Rock N’ Jock Sporting Events

Rock N’ Jock B-Ball Jam (1991) – Phil famously dunked on both Jaleel White and Vlade Divac. Drew and Mark Wahlberg got into knock-down, drag-out fistfight over who had better abs; broken up by Luke Perry and Louis Gossett Jr.

Rock N’ Jock Softball Challenge (1993) – Phil hit for the cycle, capping his incredible performance with a three-run walk-off homer in the 12th off reliever Pauly Shore. Between the fifth and sixth innings, Drew briefly made out with Heather Locklear in the visitors’ dugout.

Rock N’ Jock B-Ball Jam (1995) – During warm-ups, Phil and bassist Flea conceived their short-lived side project, the Red Hot Phili Peppers. Bricklayers coach Dan Cortese famously traded Drew to the Bill Bellamy-helmed Violators at halftime; it made virtually no difference in the game’s outcome.

Rock N’ Jock Baseball (1998) – Drew struck out Ice-T, Zachery Ty Bryan, and Donna D’Errico to end the game. Phil borrowed Master P’s gold tank and drove it around the outfield, causing irreparable damage to the turf.

Rock N’ Jock SuperBowl (2004) – Nick Lachey and Drew sang a breathtaking a capella version of the National Anthem. Dan Marino threw three touchdowns to Phil; Chingy and Tara Reid were powerless to stop him.

The Arrangement Presents: Our Signature Cocktail Recipes

Drew’s Face-Melting Iced Tea
Mix equal parts rum, gin, tequila, vodka, Southern Comfort. Splash of propane. Light it on fire; blow it out; drink it. Do not mix these steps up.

Philip’s Screwdriver
Two parts vodka to one part Sunny Delight. Shake and pour over ice. Guaranteed to make your head throb exactly in time to the drum fill from “In the Air Tonight.”

Drew’s Pretension in a Glass
Muddle ginger and brown sugar.  Sprinkle in bitters derived from the frankincenseberry, a fruit that no longer exists. Add shots of botanical gin sourced from three countries currently at war with each other. Pour over a Waterford highball containing an ice sculpture of the Venus de Milo.  Drink with three pinkies extended.

Lukewarm Beer à la Phil
Pour a beer. Take an extended, exploratory drum solo (28 minutes or more). Drink beer.

The OrangeMint
Mix a jigger of peppermint schnapps with a glass of orange juice. Serve over ice with a cherry on top. One of these will keep you rocking for the next 3-4 hours, with virtually no hangover.

Saturday, May 5: The Arrangement @ The Judge’s Bench from 9:00pm to 12:30am

The Arrangement is very excited to announce that our Saturday, May 5th gig falls on a holiday of grave historical significance, not only to the proud people of Mexico, but to all.

We speak, of course, of National Hoagie Day.

Unlike Cinco de Mayo, National Hoagie Day belongs to a category of holidays known as “Unofficial Holidays” which are “totally made up” and often “a complete waste of time and energy.” In 2008, for instance, Amtrak christened May 5th as National Train Day, to better educate the public about the illustrious history of rail travel; they discontinued the holiday in 2016, since rail travel had apparently died. (I didn’t even know it was possible to discontinue holidays. But I hereby discontinue Columbus Day, Black Friday, and April Fools’ Day. You’re welcome.)

The true origins of National Hoagie Day are unknown. But as with most of our nation’s most hallowed days, it’s safe to assume there are sinister corporate forces to thank for its very existence—namely, a triumvirate of Oscar Mayer, Hellmann’s, and George Soros. Still, no one can deny the thrill of biting into a hoagie, sub, grinder, or hero, as long as it’s not from Subway.

So on National Hoagie Day, The Arrangement asks that you join us in most solemn solidarity at the banquet table of all humankind, where we will break bread, slather it in condiments, layer it with lettuce, tomato, onion, and proteins, hoist it onto a plate with plenty of chips, and just go to town on that thing. And since it’s Cinco de Mayo, wash it all down with a nice cerveza or tequila. ¡Salud!

Saturday, March 17: The Arrangement @ The Judge’s Bench from 9:00pm to 12:30am *St. Patrick’s Day Show*

The Arrangement Presents: Some Woke Irish Jokes

Last St. Patrick’s Day, The Arrangement told a series of stereotypical jokes at the expense of the Irish, from whom both Phil and Drew are proudly descended. Since then, we’ve each undertaken deep personal inventories, checked our privilege, and fully unpacked the harmful impact of our words. To make amends, we even rewrote a few of last year’s most problematic jokes. Enjoy our newfound reverent irreverence with these fresh Irish zingers!

Q: What do you call an Irishman sitting on a couch?
A: His first name is Thomas, but you should address him as Mr. O’Flaherty.

Q: How many Irish women does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Just one. Save your mansplaining.

Q: Why can’t you borrow money from a leprechaun?
A: Because they don’t exist.

Q: Why did the Irishman fall out the window?
A: A heartbreakingly tragic combination of alcohol and depression.

Q: How can you tell if an Irishman is having a good time?
A: It will be quite apparent.

Q: Seamus O’Shaughnessy and Father Flynn walk into a pub…
A: They drink a sensible amount and then leave.

Q: There once was a man from Nantucket…
A: Just. Stop.

The Arrangement Presents: A Special Dispatch from the White House

My fellow Americans:

As your Dear Leader, I’m proud to announce that saying “Merry Christmas” is back again! And yet somehow, the War on Christmas continues. That’s why I’ve instructed Congress to hammer through special Yuletide legislation, which adds a mere 5 trillion to the deficit and enacts the following:

On Christmas Eve, every man, woman, and child will be issued a steaming mug of cocoa containing a minimum of 22 mini-marshmallows.

Our new national anthem will be “Christmas in Sarajevo” by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. As a sign of respect, all citizens are encouraged to stand with their hands over their hearts and head-bang along with it from start to finish.

All air fresheners manufactured in the United States of America will be gingerbread-scented, the way nature intended.

Some major changes on our nation’s highways and byways are also in order. Effective immediately, every car, truck, and van will be outfitted with whimsical reindeer accessories. If your vehicle cannot be modified as required by law, you may obtain a horse-drawn sleigh at your local branch of the DTV (Department of Toboggan Vehicles). You will need to provide your own horses.

The reason for the season will never be clearer, as I’ve arranged to have timeless Christmas movie classics—from Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad’s Jingle All the Way—projected each night on the West Wing side of the White House. The whole family is invited to huddle together on Pennsylvania Avenue and watch these cinematic masterpieces through the fence holes.

At long last, reverence, respect, piety, and virtue are back in the White House and in our country. You’re welcome, America, and Merry Christmas!
