JGT Serving at Industry, Quizzing at Bards

well-done

Well, tonight’s the night. The worst idea I’ve had in a while (which is really saying something) is coming to fruition. I’ll be serving tables at the Industry and Riley (or as he wants to be called, “Goodtime Charley”) will be asking the questions. This has “sh*tshow” written all over it. Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Lord knows when it will end. I’m guessing midnight. First come, first serve on the tables, so if you want to be waited on by me, get there early.

Well somehow I’ll have to make it to Bards by 9:15, where I’ll be asking the questions my damn self, thank you very much. See you tonight.

Quizzo to Go On, Despite Snowpocalypse

Screen shot 2015-01-27 at 12.49.08 PM

Yes, quizzo is on for tonight. I will bravely trudge past the inch-and-a-half snow drifts and people sobbing for their loved ones who got buried alive by Juno to O’Neals at 8 p.m., where it’s the 100 for $100 challenge. This quiz played pretty damn tough last night. Fun but tough. Scoring 100 will be a challenge, but if you do so (and your team wins), you’ll walk away with a $100 gift cert at O’Neals (provided we get 25 or more players total.) We’re also doing all $5 apps. On to Tap House at 10:15 p.m., where we’ll be doing the free money face-off, which has proved to be quite a hit these past couple of weeks. See ya tonight, you brave and hearty souls who march into the maelstrom!

Question of the Week

ijuno00001p1

Juno was the Roman God of weddings, pregnancy, and childbirth. Who was her Greek equivalent?

Quizzo Is On For Tonight

Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30. If things get crazy later and we decide to cancel, I will let you know on the JGT facebook page.

All Football Quizzo on Sunday!

sports-triva-fb

Think there’s no football this Sunday besides the lame Pro Bowl? Think again! There’s gonna be an All-Pro football quizzo at Founding Fathers Sports Bar & Grill at 5:30 on Sunday, hosted by Shibe co-owner Johnny Goodtimes. In addition to testing your pigskin knowledge, there will also be various $4.50 craft beers and $5 Nachos and Quesadillas. Most questions will be from the Super Bowl era. Gonna be a lot of fun, and you might learn a thing or two. (As far as questions asked: almost all NFL, lots of Super Bowl questions, with perhaps a few USFL and “Where did so and so play in college?” type questions. But far and away mostly NFL). See ya Sunday!

$100 for 100 Points at O’Neals; Free Money Faceoff at City Tap

We kick it off tonight at O’Neals, where we’ll be trying something new…instead of our normal $50 gift cert for the winners, we’ll be giving out $100 to the winning team…if they can score 100 or more points. (the double prize activates if we get 25 or more players tonight, so be sure to bring your full squad.) Apps during quizzo are only $5, and Mexican beers are $3.50. Action starts at 8 p.m.

On to Tap House at 10:15 p.m., where we’ve kicked off the New Year with a new game…Free Money Faceoff, where players go head to head to see who can come away with a $10 gift certificate for their team. And of course we’ve got 2 for $20 pizzas and $3 Gansetts. See ya tonight!

Question of the Week

rufus-image
What man was Edgar Allan Poe’s literary executor, who attempted to destroy the great writers reputation after Poe’s untimely death?

Quizzo Tonight!

Yes, we are on for tonight. Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30.

We’re also having a “100 point challenge” tomorrow night at O’Neals. Any team that scores 100 and wins, wins an extra $50 gift cert, making it “$100 for 100″. The only caveat is: we gotta get 30 people there for the challenge to activate. So get your crew out to O’Neals tmrw night at 8.

Quizzo Bowl Tickets Now On Sale! Motown Throwdown Takes Place on February 21st!


WHO: You, me, and nerds from as far away as Seattle and Denver.

WHAT: Quizzo Bowl XI, the most prestigious quizzo event in the country.

WHEN: February 21st, 2015. 8 p.m.

WHERE: World Cafe Live (3025 Walnut Street). The Downstairs.

HOW BIG CAN MY TEAM BE? Teams can be up to 8 players each.

WHAT KIND OF ENTERTAINMENT WILL THERE BE BETWEEN ROUNDS? An incredible Motown group, the York Street Hustle (above) will play between rounds. I’m also going to be assisted by one of Philly most beloved comedians, Chip Chantry, and of course my lovely assistant, Fastball Pitcher Bob Gutierrez.

HOW MUCH IS IT? $25 per player.

FASTBALL BOB IS WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION BY HIMSELF. I am aware of that.

WHAT IF WE HAVE A TEAM OF 4 OR LESS? Let me know…I’ll team you up with another small team.
ysh_group

WHERE CAN I GET TICKETS? I’ll have tickets for sale on me at quizzo, or you can purchase them online at World Cafe Live.

IS THERE LIKE PRIZES AND STUFF? Yes, winning team walks with $800 worth of prizes. In addition, I am offering a $100 bounty prize as well to any new winners. So if you’re any team other than Sofa Kingdom, Lambda, the Jeopardy Champs, or Where’s Johnny, there’s a bonus prize.

WHAT ABOUT GIVEAWAYS? Oh yeah, plenty of giveaways throughout the night.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU DID ONE OF THESE ON BOARD A BOAT? Yes.

THAT WAS PRETTY STUPID, HUH? Yeah, pretty stupid.

WE HATE BOATS. I am aware of that now.

WHAT ELSE? Rumors that Johnny and Chip are going to be bringing back an old vaudeville favorite of theirs from back in the day: the Wheel of Terrific is apparently making a comeback. Also, best dressed team wins a sweet prize.

SO FOR $25, I GET A MOTOWN BAND, A CHANCE TO WIN $900, ONE OF PHILLY’S BEST COMEDIANS AND FASTBALL PITCHER BOB GUTIERREZ? That is correct.

AND I DON’T HAVE TO GET ON A BOAT? There will be no boat.

SOUNDS LIKE A STEAL OF A DEAL! It is! And get your tickets soon, because once they sell out, they sell out. And when I don’t do them on boats, they tend to sell out quickly. I’ll have them on me starting tonight at quizzo. Get ready. The Motown Throwdown is gonna be awesome!
