Make Your Dream Quiz Theme Come True!

Let’s start this newsletter off with a pretty picture – here are the Junior Varsity Sports Trivia champions from last Saturday’s lunar quiz, Two Mannings One Cup:


These guys are regulars at Scott’s Triviology night at The Hutch, so this was a triumphant debut at Peter’s! Unfortunately, The Fates made it all too easy for me to choose my next lunar quiz theme – on Saturday, September 5th, we will honor the films of John Hughes . . . with trivia! Unless there are objections, I plan on focusing on his teen comedies. I absolutely welcome your input on this, and a few other fun matters (including the naming of my leprekey and The Clash of the Trivia Titans) . . . on this-here Triviology survey! There are just 7 fun questions, which are all about stuff you like to make the quizzery better, so please take a couple of minutes to fill this bad boy out!

Many thanks to Scott for subbing for me at Sewickly’s so that I could host a quiz for the Democratic Party of Oregon last week – I missed you guys! AND, speaking of fundraisers, I’ve got another one coming up (it must be the season – is there a fundraising “season”?). Wednesday, August 19th at 8:00, my regular Peter’s trivia night will be magically transformed into a special event for Ooligan Press of PSU. I’m not sure what the details are yet, but I do know that this will be a literature-heavy night. So, if you are eagerly anticipating Wordstock, this event should tide you over nicely.
And, if you’re eagerly anticipating the next Triviology quiz, Kyle is finishing up tonight’s questions for Ella Street Social Club as I type! Please note that the new, permanent start time for this venue is 7:00 – 6:00 was just too early for this location. Da Club, as I like to call it, appears to be the new lair of The Laser Crabs, who have been Triviology regulars since I hosted trivia at The Slammer, a fantastic former venue of mine. Beware as you enter – they will smite you with their pinching and searing claws!
