Quizzo Tonight

And the Skies Opened, and the Earth Was Washed Away, and the Quizzo Was Ended

A storm of Biblical proportions hit the quiz at the Oval on Sunday, and no-one was spared its wrath. No seriously, it was nuts. It hit right after the final round ended, and it lasted for over an hour. It hit so hard and so fast that most of us didn’t have time to make it to cover, and huddled under the little shelter offered by the bar. (Sadly, it also destroyed several scoresheets, meaning we can’t declare a winner. First time it’s ever happened. I’m bummed.)

We had kicked off the quiz with a great crowd, and were having a fun, if fairly humid, afternoon.

Rainoval3Then, just as I asked the final question of Round 4, the skies opened up, and people went running for the scant cover offered by the bar.


Getting soaked at the bar? Might as well grab a cold one.


A few hardy souls saw the futility of standing under the minimal cover, and thought it would be a good time to play Jenga.


While others created makeshift shelters in an effort to stay moderately dry.


Several people who couldn’t find shelter under the bar or in the makeshift tents made use of what little protection they had from the elements.

ovalrain3As everyone was huddling together to try to stay dry, there was one rebel who didn’t seem to mind the rain at all.

IMG_8206All in all, a pretty memorable time for all involved. And since we didn’t have time to go over the answers for the final round, here they are:

1. What fruit flavor will you find in abundance in a crepe suzette?


2. What was the name of Anthony Bourdain’s first book?

Kitchen Confidential

3. Lake Champlain lies between what two states?

New York, Vermont

4. What actresses breakout role was as Tony Montana’s wife in Scarface?

Michelle Pfeiffer

5. What candy bar was named after the inventor’s family horse?


6. What is the Turkish word for fate?


7. What’s the capital of Oregon?


8. The inventors of Coke, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper all had the same profession. What was it?


Question of the Week


Hillary Clinton was raised Republican and actually attended the 1968 Republican National Convention, held in what city?


OK, So Completely Disregard Everything I Said Earlier Today


Alright, let’s try this again.

MONDAY: President’s quiz has been postponed until Tuesday due to thunderstorms. We are still on for Sidecar at 9:30 p.m.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Philly…in 1849


Stumbled across something awesome recently: an 1849 guide to dens of ill repute in Philadelphia. It formed the basis of most of our podcast this past week (how much would you need to pay us to travel back in time and sleep with the toothless Ms. Hamilton?) You may also want to give it a read. The intro is great: snarky and completely disingenuous. The reviews are amazing: “Beware of this house, stranger, as you would the sting of a viper.”

I also found this interesting, and we discussed it in the podcast:

In the nineteenth century, a woman who owned property, made high wages, had sex outside of marriage, performed or received oral sex, used birth control, consorted with men of other races, danced, drank, or walked alone in public, wore makeup, perfume, or stylish clothes — and was not ashamed — was probably a whore.

Shoutout to Ben of Imaginary Goats for pointing this guidebook out to me. If anyone else has any weird or quirky historical stuff that you think would make good podcast fodder, please don’t hesitate to send it my way.

Let’s Raise Some More Money for TDHC Tonight


Great job, guys….we’ve raised over $1200 thus far this week for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our high number for a week is $1503…I think we can crush that tonight.

Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Pure frivolity. On to Bards at 9:15. More of the same. See ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight

Action kicks off at Alla Spina with Carl B Sure at 8 p.m. and at O’Neals at 8 also. I’ll be heading over to City Tap House, where you not only have a great shot of winning a $100 gift cert (it’s really anybody’s ballgame over there) but you also get to play outdoors on the patio. Going to be an absolutely beuatiful night to play outdoors. We’ll also be raising money for the Dude Hates Cancer at the quiz tonight. We raised $200 last night at Sidecar, and are hoping to make $2k on the week.

Hope to see ya tonight!

Our Annual The Dude Hates Cancer Fundraiser Runs from July 18th-21st!


It’s time for our 3rd Annual The Dude Hates Cancer Fundraiser next week at quizzo, and I’m looking forward to raising money for such a great cause. In 2014 we raised $1503. Last year, we raised $1446. I want to go over $1750 this year. Let’s make it happen!

Here’s how it works: you guys buy raffle tickets next week. 1 for $5 or 6 for $20. There will be a drawing in September at the TDHC bowling party (you don’t need to be present to win). The winner is gonna walk with gift certificates to 24 different restaurants in Philadelphia.

So what is TDHC? The Dude Hates Cancer is Philadelphia’s finest charity bowling tournament, benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of SEPA. It’s in its 11th year, and raised over $70,000 last year. It’s all volunteer so all the donated money goes to blood cancer research and to helping cancer patients and their families get treatment. The main event is September 24th at South Bowl. There, they’ll draw the Restaurant Raffle Prize: GC’s for a dinner for two at 24 different Philly restaurants. Those are the raffle tickets we’ll be selling next week- $5 each or 6 for $20.

Again, such a great charity to be a part of and the support by the quizzo community every year is always so overwhelming. Thanks in advance for your awesomeness.

Quizzo at the Oval on Saturday!


Excited to kick off the summer season at the Oval on Saturday at 4 p.m. (right in front of the Art Museum)! The beer garden at the Oval is AWESOME, and if you come to this quiz you’re gonna have a great time. It’s one of my favorite quizzes, especially because some of my old teams that have had kids or moved to the burbs can still come out, bring the kids, let them run wild, and mom and dad can still play some quizzo. It’s free to play, and yes there are prizes for the winners. Hope to see you Saturday!

Quizzo Tonight

Action starts at Lo Spiedo at 5:30. Weather is looking a bit iffy, so we’re probably gonna move it indoors. Still gonna be a good time with Carl B Sure. $2 off wine, $1 off draft beer, and $7 bartenders choice cocktails. There’s also $1 wings and $1.50 BBQ popcorn.

On to Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to Founding Fathers at 8:30. You know the dilly-O. If you need to earn JGTSI points, now’ the time to make it happen. See ya tonight!
