As part of our weekly Sunday night charity fundraisers, this week we are fundraising for one I am particularly inspired by. The Anderson Monarch baseball program is, quite simply, the best of its kind in the nation. If you don’t know about it yet, I highly encourage you to read this.
The baseball quiz is free to play, we’ll have prizes from Shibe Sports, and 100% of tips go to the Monarchs. If you want to sign up, you can do so here. Quiz starts at 7 pm, teams are up to 8 players each, and quiz should take about an hour. Hope to see you on Sunday!
Going to start hosting some themed quizzes at the World Cafe Live next month, and the first one is gonna be big. Parks and Rec vs The Office quiz goes down on April 23rd, and it’s gonna be wild. We’ve already sold over 50 tickets and haven’t even started promoting it yet. There’s gonna be live music, video rounds, basically a Quizzo Bowl style event about two of everyone’s favorite shows. For updates moving forward, be sure to go to the Facebook events page.
So hurry up and get a team together, the tickets are selling fast. How fast? To give you a reference point, somewhere between a snake and a mongoose. And a panther.
We had a lot of fun at Game of Thrones quizzo on Sunday at Logan Tap House, and a great turnout. In the end, it was Comedy Central Presents: The Roast of Shireen Baratheon knocking off A Team Has No Name. They were among many great team names at the quiz, including:
Get Rich or Die Tywin
How I Met Your Mother of Dragons
Theon Greyjoy’s Meatless Mondays
A very fun quiz that included the following picture round. Answers are after the jump.
We’re gonna play Lebowski quizzo and watch the movie outdoors on Sunday at 5 p.m.! Hope you can join us! All of the money goes to a great cause. Please help spread the word to any of your friends that are Lebowski fans. We’d like to get a good turnout for this and raise some money for the Dude Hates Cancer. Here’s the invite page on facebook.
Good news. Mad Men isn’t over on June 23rd after all. Nope, you’re gonna get to enjoy it for a whole other week, as we’re gonna be doing a Mad Men quizzo at the Trestle Inn on June 30th.
We’ve now had a whole two more seasons since our last Mad Men quiz, so there’s a whole lot more to work with. We’re gonna see how much you know about Don, Joan, Roger, Peg, and that detestable Pete Campbell, as well as all of the other characters who have wandered into and out of the various incarnations of what was once Sterling Cooper. There will be controversy, lots of booze, and plenty of scandalous sex. And I will personally buy a pitcher of Happy Hour Whiskey Sours for whomever does the best job dressing up in Mad Men garb. Action starts at 6. Hope to see you there!
The Rocky Balboa vs. Rocky Horror quiz goes down on Sunday. Drink specials, prizes, and a lot of fun at the Trestle Inn, starting at 8 p.m. We’ll see how well you know Ivan Drago, Frank-n-Furter, Uncle Paulie, and Riff Raff on Sunday night. Should be a very interesting quiz. And the winner gets double points in the JGTAI. See ya there!
The Rocky Horror Balboa Show quiz is going down this Sunday at the Trestle Inn. “That’s great, Johnny, but what the hell does that mean?” some of you are asking. It means that we are going to do the first quiz in the history of the world that combines your knowledge of Magenta with your knowledge of Clubber Lang, your knowledge of Riff Raff with your knowledge of Uncle Paulie. How much do you know about two of the most remarkable movies of the mid-1970s…and the ridiculous Rocky sequels since. This is gonna be a helluva fun quiz. Hope you can make it out. Action starts at 8 p.m. See ya there!

Here’s a little something to get you excited as you head into the final weekend of summer: we’re gonna do an Arrested Development quiz next Sunday, September 9th at the Trestle Inn (11th and Callowhill). Action starts at 8 p.m. More details coming next week, but just thought I’d whet your appetite. We’re gonna have such a Funke good time, you’ll think you just blue yourself!
That is correct folks, we’re headed back to the street of Baltimore this weekend. Last year’s quiz on the Wire was an instant classic, and this one promises to be great as well. It’s going down this Sunday at 8 p.m. at the Trestle Inn. Drink specials, great mac n cheese, great prizes, and plenty of questions about Omar, Bunk, and Bubbles. See ya there on Sunday!
We’ve got a very fun plan for Sunday. The big time Philly Quiz is going down at the Trestle Inn (11th and Callowhill) at 6:30 p.m. Let’s see exactly how much you know about your home city: there will be questions on everything from Aramingo to Zahav, questions on everyone from Frank Furness to Frank Rizzo. Sports, history, food, you name it, I’m going to try to cover as much ground as possible. This is going to be a celebration of the city. I sense that this could very well be a 5-rounder.
Furthermore, more great drink specials this time as well. $3 local canned beers (Sly Fox Pikeland Pils, Lancaster Rumspringa, and Yuengling) and $4 for their excellent Whiskey Sour. $5 gets you a shot of whiskey and a can of PBR. Gonna be a lot of fun. Oh, and double points for the JGTSpI.
And to get you in the mood, I’ll be posting Philly trivia questions all week on twitter.
UPDATE: Start time has been moved back to 6:30 sharp. I mean, let’s face it, when I say 6 I pretty much mean 6:30 anyway, but we just wanted to make sure we gave people time to get down there after watching the Flyers game. So start time is 6:30 sharp.
