ABOUT TEXAS RED ENTERTAINMENT

The Most Entertaining Gameshow Company in Texas

Texas Red Entertainment operates trivia and game shows at more than 40 bars, breweries and wineries from Dallas to San Antonio and Houston to Copperas Cove, including several in and around Temple. Folks may not know Gail by her given name, but if you mention Texas Red, you just might draw a smile.

One day about seven years ago — after husband, Billy, hinted that she might want to do something more profitable than drinking brew — Gail jotted down some Trivia questions and answers. Armed with determination, a laptop and a thirst for cold beer, she ventured down the street to the Leander Beer Market. “I started a trivia game, and people loved it,” Gail said with a grin. “I just did it for fun. People go out to be entertained, not

to stare at the bottom of their beer mug.”

 

Gail started out with trivia but over the years she has added several other games. “Texas Red Entertainment contracts with 20 different hosts with 20 different personalities,” she said. “And we play about 45 games a week — sometimes more.”

 

Central Texans who frequent Fire Base Brewing Co. in Temple, Bold Republic Brewing in Belton or Score’s Pizza in Belton, are probably familiar with Game Show Night, Name That Tune Bingo or Trivia. “We also play Dirty Wordy, which is an adult-themed game that always has people hootin’ and hollering,” Gail said. “It’s not really a family friendly game, so we usually start that one a little later at night.” “We don’t do political, religious or icky topics,” she said. “We like to keep things lighthearted.” Gail said working with local nightspots has been very rewarding. “We have met the most wonderful people,” she said. “JD and Stacy at Fire Base and Patrick and Adriane at Bold Republic are more than customers, they’re our friends. We want to be part of their success. We want their patrons to come out and relax, have fun and enjoy the show.”
