Moving The Halloween Quizzo Fundraiser Online

Hey guys, we’ve decided to postpone tomorrow’s in person quizzo at Yards. There are just so many things going on in the city right now and doing an in-person quizzo in the midst of all of it…just doesn’t feel right. But we still want to celebrate Halloween and we still want to raise money for our friends at Beyond the Bars. As we emerge to whatever our city is after this 2020 insanity, we will more than ever need to support organizations like this who give our city’s young people such a positive outlet.

So here’s the plan: we’re going to do a virtual quiz. It will be $30 a team. 50% of all money raised will go towards Beyond the Bars. It’s basically the same thing we did over the summer.

If you already paid here’s what we can do: I’ll be reaching out on venmo, and will send you your money back, though we’d still love to have you join us tmrw night.

If you wanna play virtually on Friday night, you can do so by signing up here. Only change from the previous quiz other than moving it online is that we’re bumping it back a half hour to 7 PM. If we get to 10 teams we’ll do the quiz. Hope to see ya tmrw night!

The 18th Annual Halloween Spectacular!

The longest running tradition in the JGT Quizzo canon continues, for one night only, next Friday night at Yards. Lots of questions about witches, ghosts, and goblins. And plenty of candy. To book your table, send $40 to @jgtquizzo on venmo with the note “Yards 10/30”. We had a blast at the one last week and look forward to this next one. $40 a head, and that buys you beer for two hours, an entree, and a donation to Beyond the Bars, who we’ve raised over $300 for through our first two quizzes. Hope to see ya Friday night!

Music Quiz on Friday!

WHO: You and up to 5 of your friends.

WHAT: The Ultimate Music Quiz

WHEN: Friday, October 16th at 6:30 PM

WHERE: Yards Brewery (5th and Spring Garden). We’ll be outdoors under the tent.

WHY: Because it’s a chance to have some socially distant fun at a great price and raise money for a terrific charity. 6 people max to a table, tables distanced from each other, masks whenever going to or from the table, and scoresheets will be online.

WHAT’S THE QUIZ ABOUT: We’re doing an all music quizzo, covering all forms of music.

WHAT’S THE COST: Just $40 a head, and that includes a 2-hour open beer bar, an entree, and a donation to Beyond the Bars, a terrific local music charity that my buddy Reef is heavily involved in.

HOW DO I RESERVE A TABLE: You can just have one team member pay to reserve a table by paying the $40 to @jgquizzo on venmo. Just put Yards and 10/16 in the note. The rest of your team can pay the night of.

WHAT IF IT RAINS? Not a problem, we’re holding the whole thing under a giant tent. Might wanna dress warmly though. Gonna be a little chilly tonight.

See ya tonight!

Forty Dollar Fridays at Yards

I am REALLY psyched about this one. I think we’ve got an opportunity to really have some awesome Friday Happy Hours together. And the best part is, it’s all $40 per person…full stop. That covers quizzo, 2 hour open beer bar, an entree, a generous gratuity for your server AND a $4 donation to one of the best charities in Philadelphia, Beyond the Bars. I honestly don’t think you’ll find a deal this great anywhere.

And I’m psyched to work with Yards Brewery. I’m a big fan of Tom Kehoe. Legit good dude who literally built this business out of a garage. (You should listen to our interview with him from last year if you haven’t heard it yet). Three shows in October: the 2nd, 16th, and 30th. All outdoors under a tent, with social distancing, and max team size is 6. Hope to see ya there!

TO RESERVE A TABLE: Make your team’s payment ($40 each) to @jgtquizzo on venmo and put “Yards” in your note. It’s also possible to get a table night of if there are any available but this way you reserve one.

Quizzo Under the Stars On Sunday

We’ve started doing quizzes each week at Frankford Hall (outdoors, socially distant, quiz is on your phone, teams of up to 6) and it’s been awesome. It’s a beautiful venue, they’ve got great beers on tap, and it’s been really nice to get back in the swing of things. Action starts on Sunday at 7 pm. It’s part of their Oktoberfest Celebration, so I’d expect to get a few questions about Germany, and beer. See ya there!

Sign Ups for Week of June 8

OK, I think we could all use a deep breath here. The seasons and tournaments and so forth have been a lot of fun but also kind of insane and the last thing any of us needs right now is more insanity. So this week let’s take it easy: one quizmaster, one quiz, one team. Cost is $35, with $5 of each sign up going straight to the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign. To sign up, just put your team name, captain’s name and email into our Google signup sheet.

Quizzo Update

Hey guys, hope everyone is hanging in there. Wanted to send out a note about upcoming quizzes: we’ll be continuing our tournament for the rest of this week. Anyone who lost last week is welcome to play the regular quiz.

Next week, we’re going back to what we started with: one host, one team, and anyone can play. No tourneys, no season, let’s just get back together and hang out a bit and play some quizzo. For teams that already signed up, we’ll probably still do it in a few weeks, so we’ll hold on to your info for now. (If you paid already, I’ll pay you back.) I’ll have that sign up sheet ready in a few days. Thank you!

Sign Ups for Week of May 25

Starting a little early this week with sign ups for next week for our general quiz. If you haven’t played before, it’s pretty simple: you pay $30 and pick your time and put your captains email address. You can have up to 8 players on your team. You’ll get an email from your quizmaster with your zoom address the day of the quiz and forward it to your teammates. Then you’ll meet your quizmaster at the allotted time, your team will work together to answer questions, and the QM will keep your score. At the end of the week, we’ll add up the scores and post them. Hope to see ya next week!

WANNA PLAY THIS WEEK? We’ve still got a few openings here for Thursday and Friday night.
