Carl B Sure Now Hosting at Gunner’s Run

gunner

Just a heads up that quizzo regular Carl B. Sure has started hosting at Gunner’s Run in NoLibs on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. It’s a very good quiz, so if you know anyone in NoLibs who is a fan of quizzo, be sure to send them in that direction. It’s at the Piazza, and it’s a Geeks Who Drink jawn, so it’s a well written quiz, and Carl is a great host.

Question of the Week

Who wrote the book Three Men in a Boat after returning from his honeymoon in 1888?

Tap House and JGT Present the 11th Annual JGT Bracket-tacular

doubledribble

It’s that time of year again, folks. Time for March Madness. Time for the JGT Bracket-tacular. And we’ve got some doozies for prizes this year, thanks to our friends at the Tap House. As you may know, they have several bars and restaurants in the area, including the new Logan Tap House, the Field House, and Pennsylvania 6. All of those come into play this year, as the winner of this year’s bracket-tacular gets a viewing party for 4 at the Field House with beers and apps included. They also get a free dinner at Pennsylvania 6. Our biggest first place prize ever. 2nd place is going to get a $100 gift cert at the Logan Tap House. 3rd place will get $50 worth of gift certs at the City Tap House. And yes, there will be a very special prize for our 50th place finisher again this year.

To sign up, just go here and enter your picks (if you don’t already have a Yahoo account, it literally takes about 20-30 seconds to set one up). Gonna be a fun year, and a crazy tournament as always. Since we’re nerds, we’re going to be using the Fibonacci sequence for scoring, and you do get a bonus point when correctly picking upsets.

Quizzo Tonight

A big win for Duane’s World last night at the first ever quiz at a packed to the rafters Founding Fathers. Tonight, the Invitational moves to the Industry, where we have to wonder: whatever happened to Imaginary Pablo? They’ve had their thunder stolen by ISIS, ISIS, Baby the past few weeks at Industry. Will they regroup for the invitational? Are there other teams aiming to make their move? Action starts at 6:30.

On to Bards at 9:15, where we stay pretty packed but still don’t have a dominant team. It’s anybody’s ballgame and a great quiz, especially now that we’ve got the audio on throughout the bar. Music round is “cover songs”. Hope to see ya tonight!
