400 million years ago, the earth was covered in 8-meter tall mushrooms known as what?
Ok, so we’ve got an interesting week coming up. First of all, there’s no quiz at North Star or Sidecar tonight due to the Birds game.
Also, as you can see below, I’m hosting a huge event at the South Street Beer Garden on Thursday night (and Carl B. Sure will be hosting at the 9th and Reed Beer Garden). That means no quiz at Industry…however, there WILL be quizzo at Bards Thursday night, though it may start a few minutes late.
There will only be one quiz at the regular quizzos this week, but obviously a whole new quiz at the beer gardens on Thursday (you guys should come, it’s gonna be pretty cool.) Anyways, here is the schedule for the week:
- O’Neals 8 p.m.
- City Tap 10:15 p.m.
- Locust Rendezvous 6:15 p.m.
- Founding Fathers 8:30 p.m.
- Pop-up Beer Gardens 6:30 p.m.
- Bards 9:15 p.m.
On Thursday, September 17th, Carl B. Sure and I will be hosting two simultaneous quizzos as the kickoff event of the Philadelphia Horticultural Society’s Harvest Fest. I’ll be hosting at the Beer Garden on 15th and South, while Carl will be located on the beer garden on 9th and Wharton. It will be a #Popquizzo, meaning the questions will primarily be pop culture related. Here are a few basic details, with more coming in the next few days:
Action starts at 6:30. I’d suggest you get there early. There’s going to be a lot of promotion of this, and the weather is looking perfect, so I suspect we’ll have really good crowds. Doors open at 5, so I’d try to come by soon after that.
Like I stated earlier, the quiz will be questions primarily about Pop Culture. TV, movies, music, and perhaps a few surprises along the way. Going to be doing more video rounds than we’ve ever done at quizzo before, so it’ll definitely be a lot different and more visual than our typical modus operandi.
Max team size is 5. We may allow a bit of wiggle room if need be, but there will only be 5 prizes awarded for the top 3 places, so if you’re aiming for the sky, I suggest you hold your team to 5.
The event is sponsored by the Philadelphia Horticultural Society, who I’ve worked with before and am thrilled to be working with again. I think this is going to be a really cool event. Hope to see you good folks there!
Our long citywide nightmare is over. Ruben Amaro is gone. We can LIVE again! I expect there to be a lot of hugs and a few tears tonight at quizzo, which starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Terrific hamburgers, $3 craft beers, and rumors of a WILD GIRAFFE RUNNING AMOK*.
On to Bards at 9:15 p.m. These are two bars where anyone has a shot at winning. Great night to score a win. And there’s a music round you’re going to love to hate. Hope to see ya there!
*A rumor I just now started. Please spread it.
Kick it off at Comcast at 5:30 p.m. On to O’Neals at 8 p.m. Any team that gets over 110 points and wins gets a $100 gift cert. We end up at City Tap House at 10:15. It was a rockin’ good time last week. Let’s keep it going. The wild card round is based on the question of the week and the audio round is a “Musical Covers” round. See ya tonight!
In 1974, a woman named Geraldine Elizabeth Carmichael created a company called the 20th Century Motor Car Corporation and unveiled their flagship car, a three wheeled yellow sports car that got 70 mph. After raising money from investors, Carmichael disappeared, and it was discovered that the car was made primarily of wood and had a grass cutter carburetor. What was the three wheel car known as?
Howdy kids. Just a heads up that there will be no quiz tonight at North Star, but we will have the quiz tonight at Sidecar. Action starts at 9:30 p.m. So when the cookout is over, come on by! We’ll keep the party going.
One of the highlights of the Sandman hosting quizzo is that while he a brilliant man, a very good quizzo fill-in, and a great friend, he is, without a doubt, the worst photographer I have ever met in my life. His photos are almost performance art. He certainly didn’t disappoint this week. The Industry pic is a personal favorite.

Good quiz this week, and a great opportunity to get a win at the Industry. As always, terrific $3 craft beer specials and great food. Just a great place to quiz and one of the venues where anyone can win on any given week. Action starts at 6:30.
On to the Grandaddy of them all, Bards at 9:15 p.m., where we’ve been having this little party every week since 2003. Let’s do it!
Action Starts at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to Founding Fathers at 8:30 pm. The usual chicanery.
This co-founder of National Lampoon and co-writer of Animal House and Caddyshack died when he fell off a cliff on August 27th, 1980 in Kaui. As Harold Ramis famously said, “he probably fell while he was looking for a place to jump”.
Just a heads up that I am on vacation this week, and the Sandman is taking over. There will be only one quiz this week, so you can’t play twice.
You have no idea how
happy I am to get some time away from you freak nerds much I’m going to miss you guys, but I’m going to try to have fun anyway. Sandman has plenty of experience, so I’m leaving you in good hands. Scroll down for the Question of the week, and here are the time and dates for the quiz this week. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to try to avoid thinking about trivia for a few damn days.
