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!

Quizzo Schedule for Rest of the Week

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.

Quizzo Tonight


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!

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!

Quizzo Tonight

unnamed-3

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.

Quizzo for the Cause: Back on My Feet


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!
