Get the Band Back Together and Pay Your Taxes with ‘The Blues Brothers’ Drinking Game

Drinking Games

Do you have your taxes done? The clock is ticking away to midnight on April 17th to file. If you don’t, you might end up owing $5,000 to the government, and unlike a certain Chicago orphanage, you can’t rely on “Joliet” Jake Blues and his brother Elwood to raise that money for you.

Although released more than 30 years ago, The Blues Brothers still strikes a chord with audiences around the world. Revisit the classic SNL-spawned musical from the days when SNL films were actually good. Kick back and wash down your dry white toast and four fried chickens with blue-collar beer from a honky-tonk bar.

Just make sure you fill out those tax forms before you’re done with the game, or you might not remember to mail them.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t drive through the Dixie Square Mall without a license.
