WHO: Anybody who wants to play. Teams of up to 8 players.
WHAT: Quizzo Bowl XII, 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, . And this year we are bringing a true Philadelphia legend to the stage to rock. Kenn Kweder and the Hipster Mind Tricks are going to be taking you back to the 1970s (more on that later).
WHEN: Saturday, February 6th, 2016. 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 $1500 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. And Electric Mayhem will be gunning for their 4th straight last place prize.
IS THERE A THEME? Of course there is. The theme is “The Spirit of ’76″. We’re bringing the bicentennial to life at the World Cafe. Expect 1970s tunes, 1970s outfits, and a bicentennial twist on some of the questions, whatever the hell that means. Furthermore, the best dressed team will win a $100 gift card to a local establishment. So wear either 1776 gear or 1976 gear, and you’ve got a good shot of going home with a sweet prize.
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. There will be no more boat events.
GOOD, BECAUSE WE DON’T DO BOATS. I am well aware.
WHERE DO I SIGN UP? You can currently purchase tickets online here. I will also be selling a few on consignment at my quizzes starting next week. Tickets are $25 a pop. If you haven’t been before, trust me, it will be well worth it. And do not wait until the last minute. This has sold out in 10 of the previous 11 years.
THE BOAT DIDN’T SELL OUT. No it did not.
NOT EVEN CLOSE. Will you knock it off?
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 just went live. It will be filled with previous Quizzo Bowl performances, Kweder performances, practical ticket info, and all sorts of tomfoolery. So be sure to sign up there, and that’ll keep you informed.
ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD KNOW? Just have fun. That’s the biggest thing about Quizzo Bowl. Kweder does a lot of back and forth with his crowds (which is why his live shows are legendary). This is gonna be an interactive event, from the trivia to the music. So be ready to be part of the show. Let’s do it to it!
