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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a slot, and I’m psyched to see you on Sunday!
New week, new topic: this week we’re going with a Philly theme. Questions about Philly landmarks, Philly music, Philly sports teams, and famous Philadelphians. We’re gonna see how much you know about the city you call home. This is gonna be a fun one. See ya this week!
Hey there, folks. Just a heads up that we will be watching Jeopardy GOAT at at Founding Fathers with the volume up tonight. Action starts at 8. (Beforehand, Boots will be hosting at the Vous. I got a private gig.)
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.
Happy New Year! I’ll have a State of the Union post up tomorrow as we head into 2020, but in the meantime just a heads up that quizzo is ON for Birra tonight but OFF for Bards. We’ll be back at all of our normal spots next week.
Tonight is a a 2010s Decade in Review quiz. Action starts at 8 pm with Boots Boccutti.
We’re doing a 2019 Year in Review quiz for one night and one night only: tonight! Action starts at Birra at 8 pm, and we’ll also have a quiz at Bards at 9:15. All questions will be about the year that was. Last two quizzes of the decade. Hope to see ya tonight!!!
