  1. I have heard there are some in the suburbs, but as far as I know there are none in the city. Usually bars have enough business on Fridays and Saturdays not to need quizzo to bring in customers. There is a decent Sunday night quiz at Nodding Head. If you find any on a Friday, let us know. Good luck!
