Quizzo Tonight

Action kicks off tonight at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. $3 Corona Lights and $2 Saranac Shandies. On to Black Sheep at 8:15 pm. Get there early! I really don’t know what to expect with this Taney-mania going on, so be sure to get there early and get yourself a table. See ya tonight!

Wildcard Week Begins Tonight!

Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m. A great opportunity to earn yourself an invite to Sunday’s Big Event, and these are both very winnable quizzes. I am back in town tonight, so let’s do it to it.

Only One Quiz This Week

Sorry folks, meant to post this yesterday but forgot to. You can only play once this week. Only one quiz. We’ll be back to two quizzes next week. Also, quick reminder…final quiz at the Oval is this Saturday at 4 p.m.

Quizzo News and Notes

After becoming part-owner of a new business and having a child within a two week time frame in December, the past eight months have been a complete whirlwind. So next week I am taking off and spending some time with my fam.

I leave you in good hands. The Sandman will do the quizzes all week. No theme, just a regular quiz.

He will be hosting the final two quizzes at the Oval. We’ve had a lot of fun with those over the past few weeks. If you haven’t checked out the beer garden there, I highly recommend it. Quizzos will be at 4 p.m.

The schedule for next week’s quizzes is over on the right. I won’t be posting on the blog next week so just let the schedule be your guide.

And I want to thank everyone who donated last week to the Dude Hates Cancer. We raised over $1500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! Awesome work guys. Whenever we do these Quizzo for the Causes, you all really toe the line. You’re a bunch of freaks and weirdos and nerds, but you’re still good people in my book. Talk to ya soon!

Last Night of 1990s Week is Tonight!

90s

Well this is it. If you want to prove how much you remember about the 1990s, then tonight is the night! 1990s quiz going down at Industry at 6:30 p.m. French Fry Face-off, Name That Tune, and of course a $3 craft beer and delicious food.

On to Bards at 9 p.m. Jesters of Tortuga will not be there, so it’s anyone’s ballgame. Hope to see ya tonight!

All New 1990s Quiz Tonight

90s

We kick it off at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to the Black Sheep at 8 p.m. All questions on the 1990s. Been an interesting week of quizzes so far. A few upsets, and  a rather interesting scoring situation last night at the Tap House. Hope to see ya tonight!

1990s Tripleheader Tonight

90s

We kick it off at the Comcast Market at 5:30 p.m. BYO quiz, with $100 worth of prizes for the winners. $5 off anywhere you want to go in the market, and there are a lot of great places to choose from.

On to O’Neals at 8 p.m. $3.50 Mexican beers and margaritas, and $5 burritos. On to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. Been a little quiet the past few weeks, and with a $100 gift cert on the line and a quiz that just might trip up the Jesters, this would be a good week to give it a shot before the youngsters get back in town. Looks like it’s gonna be a nice night out. I think maybe we should do the quiz al fresco tonight.

The quiz is all on the 1990s. Been an interesting quiz so far. Hope to see ya tonight!

French Fry Thursday Tonight

We kick it off at Industry, where we’ll have $5 White Russians and a couple of rounds inspired by the Big Lebowski (wanna study? I’ll give a hint about tonight’s quiz: Steve Buscemi.) Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. French Fry Faceoff and Name That TUne. On to the Bards at 9 p.m. for more of the same. We have raised $1000 so far for the Dude Hates Cancer. Let’s raise a few more hundred tonight!

Double Points at French Fry Thursday Tonight!

Oh what the hell, let’s give away a ton of points tonight. In addition to our normal insanity with French Fry Thursday and Name That Tune for Candy, we’re gonna go double points at both venues. A terrific chance for your squad to get up high on the JGTSI scoreboard. First of all, the Industry is probably the most winnable quiz on the scene, with no dominant team. Action starts at 6:30 p.m. Terrific burgers and $3 craft brews. Secondly, there are rumors that the Jesters of Tortuga will not be playing tonight at the Bards, so that makes it anybody’s ballgame. $3 Lagers. Action starts at 9 p.m. And this is a different quiz than the one on Monday and Tuesday, so if you played then, you are welcome to play again. Let’s rock the house tonight. Boom!

Question of the Week

Charles Trenet

This French artist wrote “La Mer”. Years later, Bobby Darin would change some of the lyrics and make it “Beyond the Sea”. Who was the French artist who, legend has it, wrote the song in ten minutes?

Week 4 of the JGTSI Ends Tonight

If your team needs points in the JGTSI, then get your butts down to the Industry tonight. Great opportunity to score a win and get yourselves on the scoreboard. Action starts at 6:30. And I’ll throw ya a bone: the audio round is TV theme songs.

On to Bards at 9 p.m. $3 lagers and a chance to knock off those bastard Jesters. And we’ll have French Fry Faceoff and Name That Tune for candy at both spots. Hope to see ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight!

The Sandman hosts tonight at Industry at 6:30 p.m. and Bards at 9 p.m. $3 beers at both spots, and Jesters of Tortuga will not be playing tonight, so it’s anybody’s ballgame at Bards. And Industry is always up for grabs. Two great opportunities to score points in the JGTSI. And remember, there is a new physical challenge on the facebook page if you’re trying to earn bonus points and get your team into the Big Event on August 24th.

Quizzo Tonight

Action starts at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. $3 Abita Purple Haze pins. Great beer for a hot day like today. On to the Black Sheep at 8:15 p.m. Red, white, and blue quiz. Hope to see you tonight!

Red, White, and Blue Week Starts Tonight

It’s a festive occasion, as Red, White, and Blue week kicks off tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. Things were quiet there last week, so it could be a great opportunity to get a win. On to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m.

As for the quiz itself, it will have a few questions about ‘Murica and Old Glory and 1776 and all of that, but there will also be questions on the colors red, white, and blue. And probably at least a question or two on Chuck Norris. There will only be one quiz this week. Hope to see ya tonight!
