Fun Quiz Tonight

Good quiz this week, and a great opportunity to get a win at the Industry. As always, terrific $3 craft beer specials and great food. Just a great place to quiz and one of the venues where anyone can win on any given week. Action starts at 6:30.

On to the Grandaddy of them all, Bards at 9:15 p.m., where we’ve been having this little party every week since 2003. Let’s do it!


You Know the Deal

Action Starts at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to Founding Fathers at 8:30 pm. The usual chicanery.

Question of the Week


This co-founder of National Lampoon and co-writer of Animal House and Caddyshack died when he fell off a cliff on August 27th, 1980 in Kaui. As Harold Ramis famously said, “he probably fell while he was looking for a place to jump”.

Quizzo This Week


Just a heads up that I am on vacation this week, and the Sandman is taking over. There will be only one quiz this week, so you can’t play twice.

You have no idea how happy I am to get some time away from you freak nerds much I’m going to miss you guys, but I’m going to try to have fun anyway. Sandman has plenty of experience, so I’m leaving you in good hands. Scroll down for the Question of the week, and here are the time and dates for the quiz this week. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to try to avoid thinking about trivia for a few damn days.


  • North Star 7 pm
  • Sidecar 9:30 pm


  • O’Neals 8 pm
  • City Tap House 10:15 pm


  • Locust Rendezvous 6:15 pm
  • Founding Fathers 8:30 pm


  • Industry 6:30 pm

Question of the Week


Australia recently defeated New Zealand in the finals of the World Cup for what sport, similar to basketball and played predominately by women?

Final Scores at the JGTSI


Here were the final scores on Sunday at the JGTSI, held at the Urban Saloon. Terrific job by the Ronnie Band between rounds, and great hospitality by the Saloon gang. And in the end, the winners and losers were decided by a Creed song. It turns out that Kristy on the Jesters had the AOL handle of Creedrocksgirl back in the day (true story), which is how they got the question right (Duane’s World missed it) and ultimately won the game.

Also, a big shout out to There’s No I in Quizzo, who after a last place finish at the Spring Invitational, pulled themselves up by the bootstraps and ran with the big dogs at this summer’s event, finishing tied for 3rd.

Quizzo Tonight

We kick it off at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Been a little quiet the past few weeks. A great opportunity to sneak in and get a win. As usual, $3 and $4 craft beers and delicious food. One of my favorite places to quiz.

On to Bards at 9:15. The old classic. Over 500 quizzes and still going strong. Make it happen, and be sure you have someone on your team who knows at least a little bit of contemporary music. See ya tonight!

Tripleheader Tonight

Just cruised in to Philly, and better get my act together quick…we’ve got a tripleheader on tap. We start at the Markets at Comcast at 5:30. On to O’Neals at 8 p.m. And we wrap it up at City Tap House at 10:15. You can earn an automatic invite by winning any of these events. Hope to see ya tonight!

Question of the Week

No question of the week. Sorry folks. Next week.

Wild Card Week Begins Tonight

The action kicks off tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. Any team who finishes first this week gets an automatic invite to the Invitational (and any team that finishes 2nd gets put on  the waiting list, in case we have any openings.) Two great chances tonight, as both the North Star and Sidecar have quite a bit of parity.

After North Star at 7 p.m., we’ll move it on over to Sidecar at 9:30. I’m actually in Virginia until tomorrow, so the Sandman will be filling in. Good luck earning a spot, and teams that have yet to RSVP for the Invite, be sure to get back to me.
