Alright kids, three big money quizzes tonight, one in Center City, one in West Philly, and one in Manyunk. We begin at O’Neals. $50 GC first prize, $25 GC 2nd Prize, and total parity, with 4 different winners in the last 4 weeks. Action starts at 8 p.m. $3.50 margaritas.
We move to City Tap House at 10:15 p.m. Awesome specials and awesome food. $10 gets you a beer and a personal pizza, and $3 gets you a Sly Fox. They also have 60 beers on draft. And of course the best quizzo prize in the city. $100 GC for first place, $50 for 2nd.
And I will break precedent and give you tonight’s wild card round. I am totally fascinated by this Wikileaks affair, so tonight’s wild card round will be “International Affairs”. Might want to spend a minute or two poking around the BBC website instead of just spending your whole damn day on TMZ for once in your life. Cretin.
Of course, it is also big money Tuesday in Manyunk. Mike Minion explains:
This is the week for big bounties. After Ebonic Plague won again last week, I immediately placed a $20 bounty on them. The Taproom’s wonderful bartender Ephraim immediately backed my play by adding $20 of his own. You just gotta love a bartender who’s got the quizmaster’s back. That should tell you a little bit about the spirit of quizzo at the Taproom.
What it means for all of you is that if someone can beat Ebonic Plague for first place, they will get an extra $40 in addition to the $25 gift certificate. Not a bad payoff for having fun with a great group of people.
As if that’s not enough, the Challenge Round ended in a tie last week when one team crossed off a right answer that would have won the prize pool. So tonight’s pool starts off HUGE and will easily top 100 “points”.
The Taproom also upgraded their already excellent menu. I have eaten there several times and each time it has been a real treat. I would put their food up against any of the Main Street places and it would win hands down.
There’s LOTS of money and pride on the line tonight. So come on out and join an incredibly festive and enthusiastic crowd for one of the best nights of quizzo anywhere.
