Tomorrow night (Sat, 7/31) is I Don’t Feel Tardy 3 – my annual music quiz! Get your entourage together and meet me at Peter’s at 7:00 for a shot at glory, gift certificates to the bar, and a very special trophy. ALL genres and eras of music are fair game. I will prepare lots of general music trivia questions, audio clips of songs (as always!), and as a special treat, trivioke! For those of you that want something more specific . . . and mysterious . . . look no further than Ella Street Social Club, where, this Monday at 7, Margaret will host Damn Fine Quizzery – And Hot! No word on whether Bob’s Black Lodge Dream Team will be in attendance to defend their title – they won at the last Twin Peaks Triviology night: Chickadee On A Dodge Dart. But beware – Portland Mercury’s team will be back for a second shot at victory – read their titillating recap of the Twin Peaks trivia that got away!
I am very pleased with today’s article in The Oregonian – Kristi Turnquist wrote a fun piece about three different flavors of bar gaming in Portland. Margaret‘s favorite part was when I likened public quizzery to public nudity, and the only thing I didn’t like (other than misprinting the Twin Peaks date – I assure that it is actually on 8/2!) was the implication that Jersey Shore is anything other than spectacular!
Thanks so much for the HawHide send-off, all ye who chanted “Four more years!” at my final quiz night there! You don’t have to miss me, though – while Charlene is away for the summer, I will simply take over her Monday nights at Jade Lounge – see you there at 7:00! And speaking of my trivia jockeys on hiatus, I will also take over Yur’s Sunday quizzes until Jon‘s return in three weeks. You may wonder how this is possible, since I also host 6:00 trivia at East Burn . . . the answer is – by partnering up with Charlie Hustle! I’ll move at a crisper pace than usual, and I’ll have to cut the Let’s Get Physical challenge at East Burn on these three Sundays. Don’t worry though, I’ll still provide a fun, action-packed quiz, I’m just going to streamline it for maximum efficiency.
