I’m gonna be hosting a weekly quiz in April and May every Saturday at 4 pm, and everyone’s invited! Looks like we’ll have great weather for the first one. It’s at Market East, right next door to Iron Hill Brewery on 11th and Market. And we’ll be doing it for the next 8 weeks. Entry fee is $5, 100% of which goes to PAWS. There will be drink specials from Iron Hill and Chadds Ford Winery, and food specials from District Taco. You can find more info at the event Facebook page. Hope to see you there!
What does Mystery Week mean? No one knows. Not me, not you, not Boots Boccuti. It is all a mystery. Will there be 12 rounds? 4 total questions? Or just mysterious questions about mysteries? There is no way to know. No way to know, that is, unless you attend. MYSTERY WEEK!
I’m gonna be hosting a quizzo fundraiser at Field House this Sunday evening as part of a fundraiser for an upcoming field trip they have to Cooperstown. It’s $20 to play, with proceeds going to the Anderson Monarchs. Action starts at Field House at 5 pm, and there will be food and drink specials:
$4 beers $5 mixed drinks and $6 wines
$5 food menu- hummus, kettle chips, and dips
The theme of the quiz will be 2008, the year the Phillies last won a World Series. (Don’t worry, won’t have to know a lot of baseball to do well on the quiz.) Price is $20 with proceeds going to the Monarchs. We’ll then be watching the Phillies Sunday night game after the quiz. Action starts at 5 pm. For more info and to RSVP go to the facebook page. If you wanna buy tickets you can get them here. Hope to see you there!

Going to start hosting some themed quizzes at the World Cafe Live next month, and the first one is gonna be big. Parks and Rec vs The Office quiz goes down on April 23rd, and it’s gonna be wild. We’ve already sold over 50 tickets and haven’t even started promoting it yet. There’s gonna be live music, video rounds, basically a Quizzo Bowl style event about two of everyone’s favorite shows. For updates moving forward, be sure to go to the Facebook events page.
So hurry up and get a team together, the tickets are selling fast. How fast? To give you a reference point, somewhere between a snake and a mongoose. And a panther.
We’re going back to the Spring Invitational next week, and we’re kicking it off with a special, one time only quiz, a St. Patty’s Day quiz at the Bourse. We’ll be not just playing quizzo, we’ll also be listening to Irish tunes between rounds provided by the John Byrne band. So if any of you want to play a fun quiz, listen to live music, and enjoy some food and drink specials, join us at the Bourse on Monday at 6 pm. For more details, join the event on Facebook. And it will be the only Irish quiz of the week, so if you want to play two quizzes in one week, this is your chance.
