Everything You Need to Know About Bowlizzo

WHO: Me, you, and up to 6 teams of 8.

WHAT: Bowlizzo, a combination of quizzo and bowling.

WHEN: Sunday, January 26th at 6 pm.

WHERE: North Bowl.

WHY: Why not?

WILL TRIVIA BE ABOUT LIZZO? Uh, no. General knowledge trivia.

COST? 10 clams gets you a game of bowlizzo, a game of regular bowling, and shoes. It’s a hell of a deal.

WILL THERE BE PRIZES? Of course. Not only gift certs to the North Bowl, but also some bitchin’ ass trophies and medals.

WILL THERE BE FOOD AND DRINK SPECIALS? Of course. Yards Loyal Lager cans $4 and Yards PPA glasses will be $4 (pitcher only $15!) and $5 Stateside vodka highballs.

$10 FOR BOWLING AND $4 FOR GOOD BEER? THAT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: Right?

SHOULD WE JUST SHOW UP AT THE DOOR? I would recommend reservations…we’ve got eight lanes available for this and four are already spoken for. You can make reservations by calling North Bowl at 215-238-2695 or emailing them at events@northbowlphilly.com to reserve a slot.

WHY WOULD I POSSIBLY NOT DO THIS? I honestly have no idea. It’s the most fun you can have on Sunday night at 6 pm in Philadelphia. Point blank. Doooooo iiiiiiitttttt!!!!

New Instagram Page for Quizzo

After a couple of years of “What the hell do I do with these winner photos?” I’ve finally decided to do what I should have done all along: I’m putting them all on Instagram. You can follow the new JGTQuizzo page here, which will mostly be photos of winners, venues, and events.

Food and Drink Week at Quizzo

This week’s topic is food and drink. All questions will be about the things we eat and drink. Gonna be a fun one. Here’s this week’s schedule:

TUESDAY

  • 6 PM Rothman Cabin at City Hall
  • 8 PM O’Neals with WID
  • 8 PM Dock Street

WEDNESDAY

  • 6:15 PM Locust Rendezvous
  • 8:30 PM Founding Fathers

THURSDAY

  • 8 PM Birra
  • 9:15 PM Bards

SUNDAY

  • 6 PM Bowlizzo at North Bowl (all new quiz, not food and drink)

Bowlizzo This Sunday!

What if we combined bowling, quizzo, and Lizzo to put on a bizarrely awesome event? Let’s give it a shot. We did this like 12 years ago (well, sans Lizzo) and it was AWESOME. Been wanting to do it again ever since. Here’s how it works:

We’ll have 5 rounds of quizzo, broken down as we normally do. But between rounds, instead of listening to music, your team will be bowling. You’ll bowl three frames, we’ll take the average of your teams bowling score and combine it to your teams quizzo score. Now don’t worry if you’re good at quizzo but not good at bowling…we’ll give away a prize for best overall quizzo score (we’ll also give one away for best bowling score). But this just adds a fun wrinkle to your favorite bar sport. By the end of the game, you’ll have bowled 10 frames of bowling, played 5 rounds of quizzo, and probably have had a beer or two. Your ticket also includes another game of bowling once quizzo is done. There is room for 8 teams of 6, with reservations highly encouraged. Get your squad of 6 together, call North Bowl at 215-238-2695 or email them at events@northbowlphilly.com to reserve a slot, and I’m psyched to see you on Sunday!

Quizzo Updates

It’s only January 3rd, but we’re going to hit the ground running. Really excited about some of the stuff we’ve got in the works for 2020. A lot more info on the way, but just a quick summary:

  • The Rothman Cabin at City Hall this winter for another season of quizzo. That kicks off on Tuesday at 6 pm. Drink specials, food specials and this year we’re giving away some great prizes for the winners.
  • Quizzo Bowl XVII is in the works. Nothing is confirmed yet, but save the date: February 29th. I am hoping to have that confirmed very soon.
  • We will be kicking off a 7 week season, with seven different topics, starting next week.
  • Working on a quizzo project I’m really excited about, and I think some of you guys will be too. Can’t give too much away, but it would be a once a month thing where quizzo and other skills would come into play.
  • The Friday Five is taking a short break, but returns next week.
  • Go Birds!
