The first of the three US History quizzos I’ll be hosting at the National Constitution Center will be tommorrow night at 6:30 p.m. It should be a lot of fun. You have to pay the regular fee to get into the museum, but the quizzo is free. Each member of the winning team is gonna get a $20 gift certificate to the Stephen Starr restaurant of their choice (team size max is 8), and 2nd place will get free movie passes to the Ritz 5. Not too shabby. Here is the press release:
JOHNNY GOODTIMES TO HOST THREE QUIZZOS AT NATIONAL CONSTITUTION CENTER
(Philadelphia) – Philadelphia’s only true man of leisure will be taking time out from his life of idle tranquility to host three U.S. history themed quizzos as part of the Happy Hour With the Founders event at the National Constitution Center (525 Arch Street), with the first quizzo occurring on Friday the 13th of July. The quizzo is part of the Historic Philadelphia Nights series, as the Constitution Center will be staying open until 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays on most weekends of the summer to offer dance lessons, exclusive tours, and bands in addition to quizzo.
Goodtimes, who has performed at the Palestra and the Franklin Institute in the past, is particularly excited about this one. “I am a big US history buff, and am looking forward to challenging the good people of the most historic city in the United States to quizzos that will cover all aspects of the American experience, from Presidents to athletes to rock stars.” There are rumors that Goodtimes will be dressing himself in colonial garb for the events, but Goodtimes says that these are just “Scandalous lies perpetrated by my enemies.”
The Historic Summer Nights series begins on July 13, at 5 p.m. At 6:00 p.m.and 7:00 p.m., the Center will be offering a scandalous “Lurid Lives of the Founders” tour , which will let you know which of the Founding Fathers were lovers, gamblers, and schemers. Quizzo will begin at 6:30 p.m., shortly after conclusion of the 6:00 p.m. tour of “Scandalous Lives”. Quizzo and the “Lurid Lives” tour are free with regular Museum admission.
