Really, really excited about this one: we’re doing a Big Lebowski quiz, followed by bowling as we watch the Big Lebowski. We’ll have prizes for Best Dressed, rattiest bathrobe, best bowling score, and much more. Furthermore, $10 of every ticket sold goes towards The Dude Hates Cancer. So get your team together (up to 8 players) and buy your tickets here. They include the quizzo, bowling shoes, and all you can bowl. There will be a lotta ins, a lotta outs, and a lotta what have yous. For more info, check out the facebook event page. And also wanna send a shoutout to our sponsors, Love Your Block (who are quizzo regulars). Fuck it, dude. Let’s go bowling.

Who originally had a hit in 1964 with the song “Tainted Love”?
Is this a quiz about the future? No, it’s a quiz about “next”: whether it be lines of succession, sequels, cover songs, or celebrity kids. Gonna be an interesting quiz. Here’s our schedule:
- Markets at Comcast 5:30 pm
- Sidecar 8 pm
- O’Neals 8 pm
- Locust Rendezvous 6:15 pm
- Founding Fathers 8:30 pm
There’s no mas quizzo at Cambridge, and Thursday quiz at Birra and Bards is cancelled due to Eagles game. We are on for Tuesday and Wednesday, per usual. And we’ve got an interesting topic for this week: “Next” Week, where all of the questions will be about sequels, cover songs, next of succession, and offspring.
Also, winners photos have been posted on Facebook…finally!
We just released our newest Philly Blunt podcast, this one an interview with 97.5 FM’s Natalie Egenolf. And it is really good. She talks about the struggle in radio to get to where she is now, about the inspiration she gets from her mother, and about a date in which she ended up an unwitting participant in a dolphin heist. Be sure to check us out, and if you want to do me a HUGE SOLID you can leave us a review and a 5-star rating.
You can listen to it here on itunes.
You can listen here on android.
Or you can listen on the website.
Who released the song Pink + White in 2016?
Hey folks, been working on a project lately that I’m really excited about: the Philly Blunt is a new podcast hosted by yours truly, Reef the Lost Cause, and longtime O’Neals quizzo regular Violations Greg. The goal is to do interesting interviews with Philly’s most fascinating people, and we’re off to a good start: our first few guests have all been terrific. Below are the links to each of our first three guests:
Author and activist Feminista Jones talks about what she means by “I’m not interested in white allies, what I want are co-conspirators.”
Documentary filmmaker Tigre Hill talks about corruption at City Hall and the blowback he faced from his Mumia film.
Controversial Philly Mag scribe Victor Fiorillo talks about the Swiss Cheese pervert, the article that resulted in the most hate mail, and his brief time running a swingers club.
If you could do me a HUGE solid and subscribe to the podcast and rate it on itunes, that would be TRE-MEN-DOUS. And if you want more exclusive content (exclusive, folks! These are things I will NEVER reveal to you at quizzo!) please be sure to follow us on the following:

What Harlem Renaissance writer wrote his masterpiece Cane in 1923?
The town of Cambridge Springs, PA became known as a “veritable Mecca to chronic hobos” after this author of the book The Ways of the Hobo raved about it. Who was he?
Joining what show in 1962 launched Burt Reynolds career?
Being lazy, I am really excited that there are now so many great bars within walking distance of my house where I can host. Therefore, I am thrilled to announce that I will be starting a new quiz at the Cambridge on Monday, September 17th! As of now, I’m gonna run it for about two months, then hand the reins over to the Sandman. That’s not set in stone, but as of now that’s the plan.
Action will start at 8 p.m. It’s a great bar with solid food and a great beer list and it should be a really fun place to do a quiz. Hope to see ya there next Monday night!
