Hey gang, a special schedule tonight, with the first quiz at Industry cancelled for tonight, as Industry is holding a Beer Week event. So I wanna check out the Birra quiz. I’ll host there at 8 and Carl is gonna host at Bards at 9:15. Excited to check out the scene. If you normally play at Industry come on over to Birra and join me there. See ya tonight!
Ok, we start with our normal schedule on Wednesday night, with me hosting at the Vous and Founding Fathers.
But Thursday night, things get interesting. There is no quiz at Industry due to Beer Week. Therefore, for the first time ever, I will be hosting at Birra. Excited to check out the space and hope you’ll join me. Action starts at 8. Carl will therefore be hosting at Bards.
We kick it off at Sidecar tonight at 8 p.m. We’ll also throw down at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Also, in case you missed it, we’ve changed Carl’s nickname from Carl B Sure to Boots, which he informed me used to be his nickname. Boots B. Sure it is!
Late night party at City Tap House. The kids are gone for the summer, so things will quiet down a bit. When the weather gets nicer, we’ll start doing it outdoors. But it looks a bit chilly, so we’ll be inside tonight. Not a lot of teams after the kids graduate. We’ll have Narragansett specials and 2 for $20 pizza, and a terrific opportunity to win the $100 first prize. Hope to see ya tonight!
Hey folks, here’s what you need to know about the event today:
TIME: 5:30 p.m.
PLACE: City Tap House, 39th and Walnut. We’ll be seated outdoors. We do have an overflow crowd (we had a lot of wild card teams get in this week!), so we may be packed in kinda tight, and might have a team or two down at picnic tables. There’s more room inside but it’s gonna be an awesome day so I want to be sure we’re outdoors if at all possible.
Alright, so here’s where we stand heading into Sunday’s Big Event at the Tap House. There are still 5 quizzes left, and any team that wins one of those 5 quizzes still has a shot at a wild card slot. (Your best bet to get a win is Birra Thursday night). As for the band, they’re gonna be awesome. And just to be clear: this will be at the City Tap House in University City. 39th and Walnut.
If you didn’t get an invite this week, there’s still hope: you can still earn an invite this week at wild card week. Any team that wins this week gets an automatic invite. Looking over scores from the past few weeks, your best bets to get a win would be Sidecar (Tuesday at 8), City Tap House (Tuesday at 10:15), and your very best bet would be Thursday at Birra at 8 p.m.
Ok, it’s been a few weeks, but here’s the scores and now you know where you stand heading into the final week of the regular season. Teams in yellow would earn an invite if the season ended today. Team in red need to make some moves this week. There are two ways to score points this week: come out to quizzo and earn some points, or post a pic on the new Facebook Challenge on the Quizzo FB page.
The Big Event takes place on May 21st at City Tap House, and invites will go out this weekend. Wild Card Week (where a win earns you an automatic invite) takes place next week.
We’re hosting a Draft Party Friday night at the Skygarten (1717 Arch, 51st Floor). Action starts at 7 p.m. We’ll have fun prizes and giveaways, shirts on sale, and should have a really cool view of the festivities as they go on. Hope to see ya there!
Actions starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Two $3 local draughts for quizzo. Happy hour until 7pm with buck a shuck oysters, mac n cheese croquettes, $3 local beers, $4 house red & white wine, and $5 select cocktails.
Carl B Sure hosts tonight at Birra at 8 p.m. $1 off all cans and bottles and $5 bar snacks.
And we’ll wrap it up at Bards at 9:15. Not sure what to expect with the draft in town and not all that far away. Who knows? But we’re gonna give it a shot.
I went down to the draft jawn earlier with Lil Ace Goodtimes. It was OK. Crowd wasn’t completely insane, but still pretty long lines. It was kinda wild seeing the Art Museum steps totally covered up, and they’ve got a small set up for little kids that was kind of cool. Otherwise, it was nothing special. And I still don’t get why they didn’t do it down by the stadiums. That said, having it this close to town, for all of the pain in the ass traffic wise, does help local business more than having it down by stadiums. Speaking of which, we’re having a draft party tomorrow night. I’ll have details a little bit later.
I didn’t get a bib for the Broad Street Run this year, BUT that’s actually good news! Because if you don’t get a bib, you can raise money for a terrific charity, Back on My Feet. And that’s what we’re gonna do this week at quizzo. If you don’t know about Back on My Feet, you can check out their site or watch the video above. I need to raise at least $500, and I think we can do even better than that. Every dollar raised will go towards this terrific charity, and if you can’t make it to quizzo this week but want to donate to this cause, you can go to my BOMF fundraiser page and donate there. Thanks in advance for your generosity!
