It’s back, and more sinister than you ever imagined! We’re taking aim at Santa Claus, Christmas Carols, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the Hallmark Channel as the War on Quizmas gets underway this week. (And this quiz isn’t just for gentiles, as we’ll be battling Hanukkah too.)
Best chance to get a win? Definitely Loco Pez. Though Founding Fathers has been a little light the last couple of weeks, could be a chance to sneak a win there. Dock Street is pure mayhem. Deli at Dwell and Birra both very winnable quizzes. Here’s your schedule for the War. I better see ya at quizzo this week: that’s an order, soldier!
Hey fam, we’re back at it again this week, with our last “regular” quiz before our War on Quizmas quiz next week and our year in review quiz the week after. There’s no quiz at Loco Pez this week, as they’re having their employee party tonight. (I’m also going to attend the Wu-Tang dinner tonight with Koob, will let you know how that goes!) But everything else is on as planned. Here’s our lineup:
For a variety of reasons our annual toy drive launched a bit later than usual, and we’ve got lots of kids whose Christmas wishes we need to make come true this week. Here’s how it works: go to this sheet, fill out your name next to the toy you want to get. Mail the package to the following address:
(Child’s Name) c/o Matt Pillischer
1606 Colleen Court
Norristown, PA 19401
If you’d rather pick it up at a store and drop the toy off, you can drop it off at Shibe Sports at 13th and Walnut. Let’s make it happen for the children of Philadelphia!
Happy to be back this week after taking some personal time for the past two. Thanks to Carl and the rest of the crew for holding down the fort. We are back to our regularly schedule programming this week. Here ya go:
We’re back, baby! After taking a week off, we’re excited to get back in the game. All your favorite haunts are on the marquee this week. Best chance to get a win is probably Loco Pez, followed by Deli at Dwell. Let’s go!
Unless you’ve been locked in your basement for the past month (and knowing this crowd, that’s probably a lot of you**), you know the Phillies are in the World Series. And they’re playing those games at prime quizzo time. So we’re taking the week off…We’ll see ya back at all of your favorite haunts next week. Go Phils!
We’ve been doing the annual Spooktacular, full of ghosts, goblins and gremlins, for quite a few years now. This week, with the Phillies going to the World Series, we’ll mix it up a bit, with a part horror/part World Series theme (but very few baseball questions). Make sense? No? That’s fine. It’ll be fun. Here’s the lineup.
A good week of quizzing last week. We get back at it this week with a few tweaks. Quizzo is cancelled on Tuesday at Founding Fathers, and Steve hosts at the Loco Pez ($6 margs! $6 nachos!) on Monday night. He’s also hosting a special Halloween quiz at Fette Sau on Wednesday. The rest of us will play the Halloween Spooktacular next week. Here’s our lineup:
Loco Pez (with Steve) 7 PM Cancelled until next week
Yes, it’s been great getting back into the bars. But the virtual quizzes have continued to be a lot of fun, especially for teams that are in different cities, in the burbs, or have kids and can’t get out all that easily anymore. And for the teams who love Carl (pretty much all of them.)
The Fall season starts next Tuesday. 8 games (final will be on Sunday 11/20), 4 rounds each, played in 60-75 minute breakout room sessions. Carl will be your host for all sessions, which will be held Tuesday & Wednesday evenings except for the final. You can register here and sign up for your team’s weekly sessions here. These quizzes will be separate than the regular quiz, so you’re welcome to play the virtual league AND the weekly bar quiz if you want. Gonna be a great league, we’re hoping to land 4 more teams by the time the league starts on Tuesday. Sign up today!
