First off, exciting news for those of you who didn’t see yesterday on facebook or on twitter: starting next week I will be hosting a new Thursday night quiz in the same hood as the old one. I’ll be hosting quizzo at the Industry (1401 East Moyamensing) starting at 6 p.m. They’ll be running their regular happy hour specials until 7, and there will be a $3 draft each week as well. It’s a great space, by the same folks who own the Good Dog, and I’m excited to be working with them again. Going to be a great venue for a quiz, and I’m excited that we can keep it in the same neighborhood as Ugly American, albeit at a different time.
This will result in a time change for the Bards as well. Starting next week, the Bards quiz will start at 9 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. I know I’ve heard several people over the years tell me they’d play the Bards if it was earlier…well here ya go.
There will be a special Couples Quiz next Sunday at the Trestle Inn. Over the years, I’ve had numerous people tell me that I should do one where the team size was smaller, so I’ve finally decided to give it a shot. We are encouraging couples to play, because I think that aspect of it will be a lot of fun, but you are welcome to bring a friend (Sarah B.) and call them your date. Action will start at 6 p.m.
I’m going to be doing a Game of Thrones quiz on Wednesday, March 20th at POPE at 10:15 p.m. in junction with Ommegang’s debut release of their new Game of Thrones beer. If you are a fan of the show, you will not want to miss out. I have just started watching it in an effort to play catchup before the quiz. Good show, with lots of boobs. They could call it Game of Boobs.
Next week, we kick off the Spring Invitational with $10 t-shirt week. Skins of Sidecardigan fame designed the t-shirts, and they’re pretty damn sweet. And for one week only, they’re ten bones. So be sure to grab one next week. And yes, the Spring Invite will begin next week, now that we’re back to a full roster of bars. More details on Monday. Oh, and an all-baseball quiz coming in early April. I’ll let you know the deets as soon as we finalize. Have a great weekend everybody!
