Quizzo at North Star Starting Early Tonight; Sidecar Off for Tonight

Apparently there’s an American football game tonight that involves a team of local youngsters that the denizens of this fine town are just wild over, so we’re going to have to make some concessions. North Star starts at 6:30 tonight, so we can wrap up in time for kickoff. There will be no quiz at Sidecar tonight. We’ll get back in business there next week.

Also, a heads up: the Comcast quiz will be tomorrow at the Market at Comcast Center at 5:30 p.m. GREAT opportunity to earn JGTAI points if you’re so inclined. And it’s BYO, they’ll supply the ice. So bring a bottle of wine or beer and play some quizzo. Plus everyone who plays gets a free $5 to spend at the shops there. It’s a great deal and a fun quiz.

Ping Pong Robots, Quizzo Tonight

Ok, so maybe there won’t be Ping Pong Robots at quizzo, per se, but the video above is pretty freaking amazing. Earlier this week, I had the question:¬†Former #1 ranked player Tim Bollo nearly lost to a robot in what Olympic sport earlier this year? The answer was table tennis, and here is some video of that match. Prepare to have your mind blown.

As for quizzo tonight, we start at Industry at 6:30. Perhaps the funnest quiz of the week, with the added bonuses of French Fry Faceoff and Name that Tune. REcently voted the 3rd best bar in Foobooz, the food and drink is terrific.

On to the Bards at 9:15 p.m. It’s rockin’ every week. Get there early to assure yourself a table. See ya tonight.
