Quizzo Bowl Tickets Now On Sale Online; On Consignment Next Week

britishinvasion_apt_678x230_052820141042

Hard to believe but Quizzo Bowl XIII is now less than a month away, and tickets are now on sale. Here’s the deal for tix this year: you can purchase them online here. There’s a bit of a new ticket setup this year. They are now $30 for individual tickets OR $200 for a table (which is still $25 a pop). The reason is obviously to make me insanely wealthy to encourage larger teams so that we pack the place. Now, there is a $6 surcharge per ticket IF you purchase them online. That’s why, because I’m a god damn hero benevolent quizmaster, I will be selling them on consignment starting next week. If you buy on consignment, there are no surcharges at all. If it is easier for you to buy at the venue, you can purchase from the box office for just a $2.50 surcharge per ticket. Got it? It’s also first come, first serve on tables this year. So the sooner you buy your table, the closer to the rock n roll you can be. This event WILL sell out, so start organizing your team ASAP and get your tickets so you can be assured a space at the grandaddy of them all, Quizzo Bowl XIII.

Quizzo Tonight

Kick it off at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15 p.m. On to Founding Fathers at 8:30. You know how we do. Hope to see ya tonight!

Quizzo Bowl Update

britishinvasion_apt_678x230_052820141042

Alright, so I’m getting a lot of questions about Quizzo Bowl. Here’s where we stand so far:

WHO: You, on teams of up to 8.

WHAT: Quizzo Bowl XIII, the Grandaddy of them all.

WHEN: Saturday, February 18th, 2017

WHERE: World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut Street.

THEME: British Invasion.

DOES THAT MEAN ALL BRITISH QUESTIONS? No, though I’d expect at least a few. It’s just the theme we’ll have for our band (more on them coming next week) and our “skits” with Fastball Pitcher Bob Gutierrez and myself.

WHAT’S UP WITH TICKETS? They’ll go on sale next week. Just doing things a little different this year, so trying to get all of that straight with WCL.

WILL JOHNNY BE RAPPING AT THIS EVENT? God no.

More details coming next week. if you have any other questions, feel free to post them on my wall on Facebook.

Quizzo Tonight

We are on for tonight at Sidecar. Action starts at 9:30. See ya tonight!
