Simpsonites Unite Tonight!

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Team Rock, Flag & Eagle went America all over everybody’s ass at Ella St. Social Club on Monday by proving that they were The Champions of The Sun at the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia quiz!
Midas Touch My Balls came in a very close second, by the way, and also wore some seriously awesome costumes . . .
You can watch videos of both teams in action on my FaceBook page. And if that circle of jerks from Philly ain’t your crew, you must be a Simpsons fan, right?! Saturday, November 7th, is your chance to unleash 20 years of collected knowledge of the show upon the world, in the hopes of winning a trophy, prizes, and donuts. Peter’s 19th Hole, 7:00 – Simpsonites unite!
But wait, there’s more! On Sunday, November 22nd at East Burn, I will be hosting a trivia night all about the coolest town around – Portland! Join me and Julian of PDX Pipeline at 6:00, for an evening of Portland Pub Quizzery.
This Tuesday, I will be hosting a fundraiser for ECO, a great local non-profit organization which provides science enrichment programs to kids. Therefore, Drew has kindly agreed to host mySewickly’s quiz for the night. I’ll miss you guys, but I gotta do this for the children . . . for the CHILDREN!!!
I’d love some input from you guys on something. I am tentatively scheduling the 2010 Clash of The Trivia Titans, my annual trivia tournament, for Sunday, February 28th. My only potential concern is that this coincides with the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. Because of the Superbowl, the Academy Awards, etc., my only other choice would be to push the date back to January or forward to March. So what do y’all think – after 2 & 1/2 weeks, will Olympic fever have made you sick? Are you willing to ditch the closing ceremonies so that you yourselves can become champions? What say you?

Who Will Become The Champions of The Sun?

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

Slight change of plans for Monday’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia quiz. While writing the questions, I realized that I must ask them myself – they are too much fun to resist! Therefore, Kyle and I will play Freaky Friday for the night; I will host the 7:00 Sunny Philly quiz at Ella St. Social Club while Kyle hosts a regular Triviology quiz at my Monday venue, HawHide, at 8:00. Come join the fun at the Sunny Philly quiz – there will be karate and friendship for everyone, as together we fight the Nightman; The Champion of the Sun will receive a trophy and prizes! Crazy Paddy also wants you to know that during trivia at Ella St. Social Club, you won’t need a pot o’ gold to get sloppy –  $1 PBRs and $2.50 well drinks!
There has also been a change in the weekly Triviology schedule – I have retired my Sunday night Ladd’s Inn quiz (on friendly terms, of course!), though I will continue to host my Sunday 6:00 quiz atEast Burn. And now that there’s no 9:00 trivia to dash off to afterwards, I recommend that you stick around East Burn for movie night. Each week after the quiz, your excellent bartender Keith plays a double feature on the movie screen – this week’s films will be “something Halloweeny.” Great way to nurse your hangover after a Saturday night, right? Now, for those of you that wanted to score The Elevegeddon (by playing trivia at all 11 of my venues), you may still do so even though Ladd’s is no longer a Triviology bar. This Tuesday, go to O’Brien’s on NW 21st for 7:30 trivia hosted by my trivia sensei, Drew. O’Brien’s, by the way, has $2 well drinks and $2 burgers at all times, and “cheap” tastes delicious!
Quizzers at The Hutch got to see Trivia Jock Scott save the day last week. During the I Don’t Feel Tardy music round, his MP3 player pooped out on him . . . and so he made up a similar round to replace it: Satellite Radio Suicide! He played a few seconds of whatever songs happened to be on the satellite radio station, and folks of course identified the titles and artists. Fast thinking, Scott – you made a super-fun, unique game out of a challenging situation – I owe you a cocktail!
