The April Madness pre-season is this coming week. $35 a team to play, just venmo @jgtquizzo, and we’ll have a normal general quiz. You can sign up here.
Carl’s on vacation this week and JGT’s got some corporate events, so might be a chance for some of our regulars to try out a new Quizmaster. Also: the All Star game that we promised will be next weekend. More details coming soon.
JGT, J Michael, and Carl were just talking playoffs on the Facebook page on Sunday night. If you wanna see who they think are the favorites, the sleeper picks, and the Cinderellas, give them a listen here.
Checked out our new quizzo-inspired podcast! Each week my buddy Nat the Truth and I do a deep dive on a question we’ve recently asked at quizzo…Week 1 was Leopold and Loeb, Week 2 was Heaven’s Gate. New episodes released weekly, and you can listen to them all here, or on itunes or wherever you listen to podcasts.
A young man I used to coach and I have started a small charity and had our first event over the weekend, a block clean-up at 15th and Allegheny. It was awesome: music, burgers, and a great turnout. The org is called Us Not I, we’re going to be doing a lot of events this spring and summer (and as the weather gets warmer, some crossover quizzo/cleanup events), and I’d love to have you guys follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see what we’re up to.
Yes, I am talking to some outdoor venues about starting up some outdoor quizzes. I am hoping we can be ready to rock and roll in a month or so. In the meantime, we are kicking off April Madness 2. Your team wanna join the fun? You can learn more and sign up here.
Joining us for the Super Bowl pregame party tomorrow? Well here’s the ingredients you’ll need for the two cocktails we’ll be making, one repping Kansas City and one repping Tampa. Hope to see ya tomorrow at 3!
Just because we can’t party in person on this great national holiday doesn’t mean we can’t party together. I’ll be asking all questions about the Big Game: from the most memorable plays to the best (and worst) halftime shows to the funniest commercials. Let’s see how closely you’ve been paying attention all these years.
And as an added bonus, Mike “Real” Major, one of our quizmasters and a longtime industry vet is going to teach us how to make a couple of Super Cocktails…one inspired by Kansas City and one inspired by Tampa. As soon as you buy your ticket we’ll send you a list of ingredients needed to be ready to make your drinks on Sunday.Tickets are $35 per team and can be purchased here. Hope to see you Sunday!
Just because we can’t go out on New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean we can’t party. So this NYE, let’s put on our formal finest (tuxedo t-shirts welcome…and lots of sequins), get together for some zoom quizzo, and cheers to the good riddance of 2020. We’ll have our virtual bartender Fergie teaching you some champagne cocktails while spinning a few yarns, we’ll have some questions about all things new, and we’ll do it early enough in the evening that all you old heads won’t fall asleep on your keyboards.
Wanna join us for a New Year’s Eve night of merriment and mirth? Tickets are $50 per team, and can be purchased here. 10% of all ticket sales go to Beyond the Bars (we’ll also be doing a 50-50 raffle for them) and each member of the winning team will win a $25 gift card to Shibe Sports. (2nd place will each win a $10 gift card). Hope to see ya New Year’s Eve!
Sofa Kingdom took home the title in Week 2 with an impressive 51. Yacht Rock finished tied for 2nd. The Kingdom and Yacht Rock are now tied atop the leader board with 101 points through two weeks. L. Ron is in 3rd We’ll have standings fully updated after Week 3.
Yes, it’s been a rough year, but even with our backs against the wall, we must continue our relentless War on Christmas! But before we kill this vile holiday and erase it from the history books, let’s have some fun celebrating the movies, traditions, and treats it’s given us. Same deal as usual: $35 per team (just buy one ticket for your whole team) and we’ll do a 50/50 raffle. You can purchase your ticket here. This time the recipient will be Beyond the Bars, a program that recently was announced as a finalist for the prestigious Lewis Award.
We’ve still got lots of openings for this week, if you’d like to get your team back in the mix (or if you wanna play for the first time and see what the hubbub is all about). Just go here, sign up, and send $35 per team to @jgtquizzo on venmo. And boom, you’re entered. Hope to see ya this week!
Congratulations to Yacht Rock and Expired Walmart Meat…both scored a perfect 52 last week to rocket to the top of the charts. Yacht Rock comes away with one of the narrowest victories in quizzo history, by 0.02 in OT. If you missed last week, worry not, we’ve still got lots of openings for this week. We’re taking each team’s top 3 scores to determine a December champ, so you’ve still got a shot at the crown if you sign up now!
