WHO: Everybody who loves quizzo and want to celebrate the bar game that Philly made famous.
WHAT: Quizzo Bowl XVI, the longest running event of its kind in America.
WHEN: February 29th, 7 PM doors, 8 PM start.
WHERE: Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill Street.
WHY: Because you want to have an awesome time on the ONLY Saturday the 29th you’ll see until 2024, answering trivia questions, performing on stage, and engaging in general inanity.
WHAT’S THE ENTERTAINMENT? Pat Finnerty Live Band Karaoke.
HOW’S THAT GOING TO WORK? Simple. You’re going to drop three songs you want to sing in a bucket. They’ll draw out requests. They know so many songs that they’ll certainly know one of three. If they draw your song, you’ll get on stage to sing…but don’t blow it! Fastball Bob will be in charge of the gong.
HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS? $25, same as they’ve been for the past 15 years.
WHERE CAN I GET THEM? You can purchase them here. I will also have some on me next week at the quiz.
WILL THERE BE A CHARITY COMPONENT: Yes and it’s one I’m excited about. We’ll be doing a 50/50 during the quiz, so be sure to bring some cash. Juliette is a Vous regular and a teacher at Freire Charter School, and they have a field trip coming up…TO SPAIN! Most of these kids have never left Philadelphia, much less gone to another country, and I think it would be awesome if our community could help raise a few hundred bucks to help make sure this is a terrific trip.
WHERE CAN I FOLLOW UPDATES ON THE QUIZ? On the Quizzo Bowl Facebook page.
WHAT THE THEME? Quizzo Goes Underground.
WHAT’S THAT MEAN? Quizzo has gone too corporate, too mainstream. We need to return it to its roots!
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? I don’t know. I’m just making this up as I go.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT THAN A TYPICAL QUIZ GAME? It’s completely different. Video rounds, live music, special guests, guests who aren’t special, huge trophies, ETERNAL GLORY. It is a distillation of everything great about quizzo rolled up into one magical night.
ARE YOU HIGH? I wish.
IS THERE AN AFTERPARTY? Yup! For those of you who haven’t been to Underground Arts before, there’s a main area (the stage) and a “lounge”. The afterparty will be right next door in the lounge.
WILL THERE BE FOOD AND DRINK SPECIALS? Yup, and Underground Arts has legendary tamales maker Jenn Zavala (if you have never heard her Philly BLunt interview, YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT) running their kitchen, so the food is going to be awesome.
WILL THERE BE A PRO PHOTOG? Yep! Photo Lady Marissa will be on hand to take pro pictures of all participants.
WILL THERE BE PRIZES? Plenty.
WHAT AM I WAITING FOR? I have no idea. Buy your tickets. We’re at about 50 sold, 150 left. Let’s goooooooo!
