Ok, I’m back in the building tonight, starting at Industry at 6:30. Joining me will be Carl, who will be hosting the wild card round. Our last quiz at the Industry this year…hope to see you there.
On to Bards at 9:15, where Geoff will be trying his hand at quizmastering. It’s our last quiz of 2014 at both spots, so let’s end it on a high note. See ya tonight!
MMMkay, so remember yesterday when I promised that I wouldn’t miss any more quizzes before the holiday? Weeeeell, the entire fam has come down with some sort of flu that my kid brought home from daycare (for those that don’t know, when it comes to diseases, daycares are like Panama Canal construction sites in the 1900s.)
So I’m going to sit home and be miserable for the remainder of the evening. But the show must go on! My more than capable wingman, Sandman, will host the quizzes tonight. Action starts at the Vous at 6:15. On to the Sheep at 8:15. Last quiz at both spots for 2014. Hope you can make it out. And I’ll be sure to drink lots of quinine before heading back out to the canal with my pickax.
Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. The Sandman fills in (I have a private gig in Paoli. Last one I’ll miss before Christmas! Promise! Unless one of you wants to hire me for a private gig!) I’ll be back in action at the Tap House at 10:15 p.m. And good news: the Jesters of Tortuga will not be there, as they played (and got smoked) last night. It’s an interesting quiz. A tough quiz this week, no doubt. But that’s what makes it interesting. Gonna be anybody’s ballgame, especially since the music round is so hard. Hope to see ya tonight!
As many of you know, some friends of mine and I took over Shibe Sports about a year ago. We’ve got a great store with lots of cool gear, and I wanted to be sure I hooked you guys up for the holidays. So we’re doing a 15% off sale for all quizzo players. Just type in the promo code “quizzo” and get 15% off your order. The deal lasts through Friday, as that’s the last day you can order if you want to get it in time for Christmas.
We’re locally owned and operated, and much of our gear is made locally as well. If you have a sports fan in your life and are looking for the perfect gift, then be sure to check us out. We’ve got some great t-shirts, jackets, and hats with local teams such as the Flyers and Eagles but also with some more historic and obscure teams like the SPHAS (the Jewish team that dominated basketball in the 1930s and 40s) and the Stars (The USFL team that was the best football team in Philly history).
If you want to actually swing by the store, I’ll be there this Thursday from 11-3 and Friday from 11:30-4. I’ll also be there on the 23rd and 24th from 11-3. Swing on by. I’ll take care of ya.
Got a couple of guys trying out to be the next Johnny Goodtimes at tonight’s quizzes. At North Star Brendan will test his mettle, while at Sidecar Paul “Blazin’” Hazen will give it a go (though as an avowed Communist I am a bit afraid that he’s just trying to destroy the quizzo business from the inside).
Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. Sidecar at 9:30. See ya tonight!
Industry at 6:30 p.m. Bards at 9 p.m. A round on awful movies and ridiculous music. The Sandman guest hosting. Holla!
O’Neals at 8 p.m.
City Tap House at 10:15 p.m.
“RIdiculous” music round. Here we go.
And a quick note: I’ve got 4 holiday gigs this week, so there’s only gonna be one set of questions.
Ok, so yes, I’ve been slack lately with getting pics up in time. I was gonna post this morning but then we lost our keys and my wife had to take the bus to work and the consensus was that it was probably my fault. But alas, after literally 5 hours of looking, I found the keys in a plastic bucket of Christmas stuff that she was taking things out of, which means that I’m pretty sure it’s her fault! Which gives me some moral high ground I desperately needed after I stayed out way too late on Friday night.
Anyways, pics will be up tomorrow. Quiz is on for tonight. Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30, where Geoff will be hosting a round for the Geeks Who Drink job. See ya tonight!
You know the dilly, yo. We start at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. On to the Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. We had a lot of fun with that before and after round earlier this week…I think I might have to do another one of those. See ya tonight!
Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Great beer and food specials, $50 gift cert for the winners. Action moves to City Tap House at 10:15. Another audition tonight, as Mara will try out for a quizmastering gig with Geeks Who Drink. 2 for $20 pizzas and $3 Gensetts. See ya tonight!
Awesome event last night at the store. Jayson Stark was incredible. Not only engaging while he signed books, but he also just hung out and talked baseball with everybody for an hour. Really, really cool event.
And just a heads up that we’ve got a number of sales coming up over the coming holiday. Both for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, we’re gonna be taking 25% off everything in the store. If you’ve been to the store, you know what kind of unique and vintage gear we’ve got for sale. If you haven’t this would be a great time to check us out. If you’ve got a sports fan on you shopping list, be sure to swing by our store. We’ll be open from 9 am-9 pm on Black Friday, 11-9 on Small Business Saturday.
Yes, quizzo is on for tonight. Locust Rendezvous at 6:15, Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. Yeah, we’re gonna get an inch of snow. I think we can handle it. Same quiz as earlier this week. Couple of Thanksgiving rounds. Hope to see ya tonight!
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves baseball, this is a great opportunity to get your shopping done early. Jayson Stark, the great baseball writer on ESPN.com, will be at Shibe Sports (137 South 13th Street, between Walnut and Sansom) today at 5:30 p.m. We’ll have free drinks and snacks and a Q&A with Jayson at 6 p.m. Hope to see ya there!
