Yo gang, we are back in action tonight. O’Neals at 8 p.m., Bards at 10 p.m. I have been fishing for ideas for wild card rounds on facebook, so if you’ve got any good ideas, let me have them. Also, I was inspired by the bit of smack talk we got going with Denver yesterday in the comments section of the documentary piece. I think it’s almost time for a little city vs city action. You guys think we should do some sort of bash against those clowns this summer? I’d really like to do something outdoors at the Jamaican Jerk Hut. Let me talk to them sometime soon.
Also, final quizzo ever at the Good Dog this Thursday! When I started there, like 6 years ago, they wanted to use quizzo to help get people used to hanging out upstairs. While I don’t want to take too much credit for the resulting success upstairs (I think it had more to do with what a kickass bar the Good Dog is), it finally got to a point where quizzo was no longer really necessary. (And, truth be told, the Good Dog quizzo crowd evolved from a rowdy bunch of partiers to more cerebral types who were more likely to drink water than booze. Higher scores lately, but lower bar bills. And I don’t get paid for high scores.) On the one hand, it is a little sad to move on. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Dave, Heather, Lisa, Erin, and the whole gang, and really enjoyed the intimacy of the room. That being said, however, I am kind of excited to try something new. I have had the same routine for years now, and I’m kind of excited to break out of it and find a new spot, which I don’t think will be exceedingly difficult to do. I’m going on vacation on April 11-17, and after I get back I’ll start looking for a new place to quiz. I’ve got a few spots in mind. Let me know if you’ve got any thoughts on places to look at.
