Bump Up Those Wins!

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

Hi, folks! Now seems to be a great time to rack up some wins to qualify for February’s Clash of the Trivia Titans - it’s been kinda slowish cuz of the holidays and whatnot. Of course, everybody is welcome to participate in my annual trivia tournament, but the more your team wins over the course of the year, the more likely you are to qualify for the bigger, radder prizes and trophies! Probably the most sparsely attended Triviology venues these days (and therefore, the ones wherein you are most likely to win!) are Tuesdays at Sewickly’s and Thursdays at Kenton Club. Every single win this “trivia season” is posted in my Hall of Fame, so you can tally them up (the wins at retired venues such as Albina Green definitely still count, they’re just listed at the bottom, since they’re now closed). I’ll send out more details about the Clash of the Trivia Titans soon, or you can certainly ask me about it at any pub quiz as well.


Next week, you can do a double-shot of Scott! He will be your awesome substitute TJ this Tuesday at Sewickly’s (meanwhile, I’ll be hosting a holiday party for the good people at Dove Lewis), in addition to his regular Triviology gig at The Hutch. By the way, he will also be hosting trivia at The Hutch on Xmas Eve (Peter’s will be closed)! So if you don’t have plans that night, come gather around the warm, roasty glow of booze and a sense of superior intelligence. And be sure to give Trivia Jock Scott some fat tips, cuz he’s working on Christmas!


Hey, all you paparazzi out there – I’d love to see those pictures you’ve been taking at trivia nights, and even post them, if you’ll allow it. I’m sure that many of those photos would make excellent additions to your team pages - in fact, any type of team artwork or statement would be a great way to show off the wonders of your crew! Send me anything you’d like to say about your team, and I’ll either add it to your page or make a new one for you. Show some team spirit!
