WHAT: Quizzo Bowl XIV, the longest running quizzo event of it’s kind in the Universe. It is a celebration of nerd awesomeness, great music, and a vaudeville spirit. In the past we’ve had breakdancers, glam rock bands, Motown bands, human pretzels, Black Elvis, dancing, singing, Fastball Bob, Chip Chantry, Jeopardy champions, and Johnny Flamethrower. This year we’ll be welcoming the Wallace Brothers, an outlaw country band that you guys will love, and Financial Guru Gregg Gethard.
WHEN: Saturday, January 27th, 2018. Doors open at 7 p.m. Event starts at 8.
WHERE: World Cafe Live. 3025 Walnut Street.
WHY: Why not?
PRIZES: Yes, there will be $1400 worth of prizes for the winning teams (and new this year: a 14th place prize!). There will also be raffles and prizes given away throughout the evening. In the past we’ve given away raffle tickets…this year, inspired by our shithead trash President, we will charge a nominal fee for the tickets, with 100% of money raised being sent to a charity called Hope for Haiti.
IS THERE A THEME? Of course there is. The theme is “Outlaw Country? Best dressed “Cowboy” team wins a gift certificate.
IS THIS THING GOING TO BE ON A BOAT AGAIN THIS YEAR? No, this year’s event will not be on a boat. It will be at the World Cafe Live. (Though there are rumors floating around that Quizzo Bowl XV will be “Back to the Boat”.)
GOOD, BECAUSE WE DON’T DO BOATS. I am well aware.
WHERE DO I SIGN UP? You can currently purchase tickets online here. I also have them at my quizzes. Tickets are $25 a pop (plus fees). If you haven’t been before, trust me, it will be well worth it. I will also have some tickets on me next week at my four quizzes. But do not wait until the last minute. This has sold out in 12 of the previous 13 years.
THE BOAT DIDN’T SELL OUT. No it did not.
NOT EVEN CLOSE. Stop it.
WILL THERE BE AN AFTERPARTY? Yes, working on details now. Will let you know soon.
WHERE CAN I GET UPDATES AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE EVENT?The Quizzo Bowl Facebook page is live. It will be filled with previous Quizzo Bowl performances, ticket info, old questions, and all sorts of tomfoolery. So be sure to sign up there, and that’ll keep you informed.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY TEAM WINS? You win $800, but that’s not the best part. The best part is that you’ll join the ranks of the immortals. Is your team good enough to become the 7th different winner in our 14th year? There’s only one way to find out.
