Comcast Quizzes in 2015

unnamed-1

Here ya go, the full calendar of our Comcast quizzes for 2015. These have been a lot of fun. Everyone who plays gets a $5 voucher to use at the surrounding shops, and it’s BYO and buckets of ice are provided to keep your drinks warm. Pretty great deal. Looking forward to doing these again in the New Year. First one is Tuesday, January 13th at 5:30 p.m.

Bounty Bowl Tonight!

dog

Imaginary Pablo has won 8 straight at the Industry and need to be stopped. Therefore, the Dog is offering a $25 bounty to any team that can knock them off (and win overall) tonight! That’s in addition to the normal gift cert. See ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight

We’re finally back in business at the Industry and the Bards tonight. Been surprisingly decent crowds this week. I guess my fear that everyone’s New Year’s Resolution was going to be “Play less quizzo” was unfounded. Interesting audio round tonight. Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. We move to Bards at 9:15 p.m. Hope to see ya tonight!

Quizzo TOnight

Finally! Our first quiz in almost a month at the Vous and at Black Sheep. Vous starts at 6:15ish. Black Sheep at 8:15ish. Hope to see you youngsters tonight!

Quizzo Bowl XI: Motown Throwdown!


Our theme is set for Quizzo Bowl XI…it’s the Motown Throwdown! Music between rounds will be provided by the York Street Hustle, an AWESOME Soul band that I am extremely excited to share the stage with. The Bowl goes down on February 21st at World Cafe Live…tickets will go on sale in two weeks. So get your squad together and get ready for the most prestigious quizzo event in America, the Quizzo Bowl!

Only One Quiz Tonight

Hey gang, just a heads up that we’re only partying in the snow at one spot tonight, and that is O’Neals at 8 p.m. In addition to our normal madness, I’ll have some ski lift tickets to give away. The kids ain’t back from holiday yet, so we’re gonna hold off at City Tap until next Tuesday, when we’ll be returning with our quiz, and with a little face-off action. So see ya tonight at O’Neals!

Question of the Week

11-jaws-19

What is the tagline for Jaws 19 in the film Back to the Future II (which takes place in 2015)?

Back to Reality

2015The holidays are done, and it’s back to working and paying bills and figuring out what to do with this dead tree in our living rooms. But there is good news on the horizon. Quizzo Bowl XI will be on February 21st, and we’re gonna have a damn good time at the World Cafe Live. I’ll be announcing our musical guests for the Bowl tomorrow. We’re also gonna have several new contests this year at quizzo, including faceoffs at Tap House (where we’ll resume our quiz next week) and a few new wrinkles and contests I’m working on as well, including a tradoff with me and Riley at Industry later this month. Yep, I’m gonna wait your tables and Riley’s gonna ask the questions. Should be a complete disaster lot of fun.  

In the meantime, we’ve got the same good old quizzo goodness that we perform every week, starting tonight at the North Star Bar at 7 p.m., and on to the Sidecar at 9:30. Our first 50/50 round after the new year has become an annual tradition, and we’ll be celebrating all that’s new in our wild card round.

And yes, I still have hopes of posting a few pics and scores from before the New Year. I had a ton of private party gigs followed by the holidays, so I’ve got some catching up to do. Just the way you want to head into the New Year. Alright, so let’s get this party started this week.

Question of the Week

779_1415734683

Which member of the Sugar Hill Gang died in November of 2014?

(Had to end the year with a rap question)

2014 Year in Review Quiz

2014

Only three quizzes this week, all of them about the year that was. So expect questions about 2014 films, movies, and newsmakers. Action starts tonight at North Star at 7 p.m. We move to Sidecar at 9:30.

On Tuesday night, there’s only one quiz, at O’Neals at 8 p.m. And that’ll be it until next week.

I hope everyone’s having a great holiday. While in the midst of your merrymaking, keep this in mind…Quizzo Bowl is coming! February 21st at the World Cafe Live. Details coming soon after the New Year.

Wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater; Earn Quizzo Points

 Screen shot 2014-12-23 at 4.35.53 PM

Ok, what the heck, let’s do it at both quizzes tonight. We start at O’Neals at 8 p.m. 2 points for wearing an ugly Christmas sweater…I’ll give you one bonus point if you wear green and red.

On to City Tap House at 10:15, where we’ll really blow it out. Not only do we have 2 for $20 pizzas and $3 Gansetts, but we’ve got $5 Sly Fox Christmas Ales and $5 Shiner Holiday Cheers. We’ll also play some Christmas Faceoff.

And at both venues, we’ll be raising money for the Child Guidance Resource Center, so that children will receive Christmas presents who would otherwise go without. We raised over $200 last night! Let’s do it again tonight.

Question of the Week

wildhunt2

During the Viking festival of Yule, held in December, the Viking God of War with a long white beard would ride his 8-legged horse called Sleipnir across the sky and leave small presents in boots for children who left hay for his horse. Who was this Viking God that many people believe was a precursor to Santa?
