We just released our newest Philly Blunt podcast, this one an interview with 97.5 FM’s Natalie Egenolf. And it is really good. She talks about the struggle in radio to get to where she is now, about the inspiration she gets from her mother, and about a date in which she ended up an unwitting participant in a dolphin heist. Be sure to check us out, and if you want to do me a HUGE SOLID you can leave us a review and a 5-star rating.
Being lazy, I am really excited that there are now so many great bars within walking distance of my house where I can host. Therefore, I am thrilled to announce that I will be starting a new quiz at the Cambridge on Monday, September 17th! As of now, I’m gonna run it for about two months, then hand the reins over to the Sandman. That’s not set in stone, but as of now that’s the plan.
Action will start at 8 p.m. It’s a great bar with solid food and a great beer list and it should be a really fun place to do a quiz. Hope to see ya there next Monday night!
Hey gang, quiz as usual this week EXCEPT that there will be no quizzes on Thursday thanks to the Eagles game. General theme this week but expect a little bit about football, and a little bit about “Back to School” in the mix. Schedule is as follows:
This week, you should try to get all of your rich friends to join the team, because only they will truly understand the questions, about a lifestyle of “champagne wishes and caviar dreams.” In honor of the late Robin Leach, this week’s quiz will be all about conspicuous consumption. Hope to see ya there!
I am back in town and ready to get back into the swing of things. I was refreshed and rejuvenated by my Ireland vacation for all of 24 hours, until I had a brand new speaker swiped off the sidewalk. It had been used once. Ugh. Anyways that will work it’s way into this week’s audio round.
There is also some really cool stuff in the works for this fall. Excited to share that with you in the next couple of weeks. See ya this week! -JGT
I’m headed to the homeland of quizzo for the next couple of weeks, Ireland, but don’t worry: I’m leaving the empire in good hands. Here’s how the next couple of weeks look. Please note that Bards start time is a few minutes later than usual. There will also be no Question of the Week for the next two weeks, nor any themes for the quizzes. Have fun, kids, and be nice to the substitutes!
I’m back! And I’m badder than ever. Well at least badder than I have been in awhile. We’re returning to a good old fashioned quiz this week: no theme, just all sorts of trivia. A veritable smorgasboard! Here’s our lineup for this week:
Alrighty, I’m coming back in from Denver today and my flight got delayed so I can’t make it back in time but after some scrambling I was able to get both quizzes covered. Carl will be hosting at O’Neals while Jason of In The Lead fame will be hosting at Sidecar. He’s got a southern drawl! You’re going to love it! Both quizzes start at 8 p.m.
Both quizzes are OFF for the 4th of July.
We are back ON for Thursday. Carl will host at both at Birra at 8 pm SHARP and the Bards at 9:30ish, possibly closer to 9:45. But Carl doesn’t dilly dally like me so you’ll still be done around 11.
Yes, there will be a 4th of July theme, though very loosely applied. Make it happen!
Don’t worry if you don’t know much about soccer; there will be some soccer stuff but not a lot of it in the quiz. It will mostly be a quiz about the countries involved in the World Cup and a few soccer terms. Might be worth looking over the 32 countries involved before the quiz. Should be a fun one. Action starts tonight at Sidecar and O’Neals at 8 p.m.
The phones at the Vous were down earlier, but they’re back up now. So if you tried to call earlier to make a rez and didn’t get through, there is room for a few more teams for tonight, so give the Vous a call. 215-985-1163.
There is no quiz tonight at Founding Fathers due to the NBA Finals. See ya back there next week!
