First of all, I want to thank everyone who donated to our annual toy drive. We were able to get gifts for EVERY child on the list, which was just awesome. In fact, Cheri said they actually added a few kids to the list because we got such an awesome response! To everyone who contributed: I can’t thank you guys enough. It really is awesome to be surrounded by so many giving people.
Plenty of other things to talk about as well:
Date is set for Quizzo Bowl XIV. It will be on January 27th at the World Cafe Live. I will have more info next week and tickets will go on sale next week as well. Be sure to check back then.
In addition to Quizzo Bowl on the 27th, Geek Bowl will be in Boston this year, so it would be awesome to have several of our Philly teams there. It’s an incredible event, with over 1000 people playing quizzo. Hit me up if you want more details. We’re going to have at least two teams from Philly attending, but the more the merrier.
Thursday was our last quiz at Industry. Sad to say, they are closing their doors on December 31st. It’s a shame, truly one of my favorite bars in the city. Dave and Lisa are not only great bar owners, they’re great people, and it’s been awesome working with them for over 10 years between Good Dog and Industry. I do not have any solid leads at this point for where I’ll do a new quiz, but I’ll start looking right after Christmas. We’ll be somewhere new in either January or February.
As for next week, here is how our schedule is looking. Note that Birra will start half an hour earlier than usual:
- O’Neals 8 p.m. (with Jumping Joe Moore)
