WHO? You, me, and nerds from not only the Philadelphia area, but from as far away as Seattle.
WHAT: Quizzo Bowl IX, the longest running and most prestigious event of its kind in
America the world.
WHEN? Saturday, February 23rd at 8:30 p.m.
WHERE? World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut Street. Downstairs.
WHY? Here’s the thing that people who have never been to a Quizzo Bowl don’t quite get, and understandably so…”Why would I (quoting Fastball Pitcher Bob Gutierrez here) pay $25 to answer questions in a trivia setting”? It’s because quizzo at the bar on a lazy Tuesday and Quizzo Bowl are as related as intramural flag football and the Super Bowl. Yes, they are both still fun, yes they are both great activities, but the pageantry, the insanity, the hilarity is amped up to the Nth degree. There will be an awesome hair metal band, Welcome to My Face!, playing between rounds and performing our music round. There will be Philly’s best sketch troupe, Secret Pants, performing a round live on stage. There will be a video round on the enormous film screen, tons of prizes to give away, and of course, the most lovable co-host in America, Fastball Pitcher Bob Gutierrez.
OK, ENOUGH WITH THE PEP TALKS. I NEED MORE DETAILS. HOW MANY ON A TEAM? Each team can have up to 8 players. If you have a team of 5 or less, there is a decent chance you will be teamed up with another squad, so we can maximize our space (These are always sell-outs, so I want to make sure we can get as many people in as possible).
CAN I JUST COME AND WATCH? No. If you want to come, play, and not have your score recorded, you are welcome to. But this is an interactive event, and it’s important that everyone in the room be part of that energy.
I WANT TO COME, BUT I DONT’ HAVE ANY TEAMMATES. CAN I STILL PLAY? Of course. Just let me know if you have a team of 4 or less (all the way down to 1) and I will team you up with another smaller team. You can see me at quizzo or send me an email at johnny @ johnnygoodtimes.com.
WILL THERE BE FOOD AND ADULT BEVERAGES TO PURCHASE? Yes, there will be table service at the event.
REMEMBER HOW PISSED OFF I GOT AT QUIZZO BOWL VI WHEN I COULDN’T GO OUTSIDE TO SMOKE, JOHNNY? I BETTER BE ABLE TO GO OUTSIDE TO SMOKE HERE. Yes, you are welcome to go outside to smoke between rounds during the event.
JOHNNY, I HATE STEAK EM UP/SOFA KINGDOM AND I DON’T WANT THEM TO WIN. WOULD YOU MIND IF I TOOK A TIRE IRON TO ONE OF THEIR KNEES RIGHT BEFORE THE EVENT? I certainly cannot condone such actions in a public forum. But if you shoot me this question to my email address I’ll tell you what I really think about this suggestion, and where you can get a quality tire iron for a reasonable price.
WHERE CAN I GET TICKETS? You can buy tickets from me at quizzo this week or you can purchase them online here.
CAN I JUST BUY TICKETS AT THE DOOR? You possibly could, but this event almost always sells out before the night of the event, and the tickets are more expensive at the door. Buy them beforehand to be safe.
I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT QUIZZO BOWL. Shoot me an email or post them on my quizzo facebook page.
