Just got back from Austin (above), where two teams represented Philly in the Geek Bowl. Some of the nerds from Sofa Kingdom (Nate, Swanson, Garbo, Kenney) teamed up with Phil from the Jams and Carl from the Specific Jawns to form Independence Hall and Oates. Meanwhile, I played with City Tap House regulars Underground Bard, and we finished a quite respectable 24th (out of 170 teams). Great event, well run by those corporate drones at Geeks Who Drink (more on them later).
We’ll be having our own shindig here in Philly very soon. I will have tickets to the oldest and most prestigious quizzo event in the country at quizzo tonight. Do not wait too long to buy yours..the event will sell out.
We start at North Star at 7 p.m. Half off mussels and hummus and $3 Kenzingers highlight a very winnable quiz. On to the Sidecar at 9:15 p.m. Dollar off all bitter beers. Hope to see ya tonight!
