Michael & Farrah – Together At Last!

Dry your eyes, folks – Farrah, Michael, and Bubbles are alive and well! They’ve run off together to live in Atlantis, and any paparazzi in pursuit will be swallowed up by the Bermuda Triangle. They’ve left Billy Mays and the rest of us behind, so let’s just get on with our trivial lives!

First order of business - Triviology’s newest venue! This Tuesday at 8:00, Trivia Jock Kyle will launch his weekly quiz night at Wxyz, located in the Aloft hotel near IKEA. Believe me, this venue is a far cry from the stereotypical dark, depressing hotel bar; Wxyz is bright, open and chic – see!?


I think you need even more Kyle time, so here’s a little extra incentive to attend his other two Triviology quizzes this week. In addition to the standard prizes at Ella St. Social Club (Mondays @ 6:00) and Kenton Club (Thursdays @ 9:00), every member of the winning team will receive gift certificates for brunch at Montage! If you haven’t been to Kyle-style Triviology yet, here’s what he looks like:


As god is my witness, I don’t remember why I did that to him, but I CAN assure you that he deserved it.
 

In this newsletter, I like to share awesome wrong answers that your fellow players concoct. For example, last year, Dr. Bagelman’s Hour of Hate came up with “Xanadu The Right Thing” as a Natalie Portmanteau - I wish I’d thought of it! Here’s a recent clever answer from a HawHide team:

Q: Name the cooking & entertainment website whose name references an ancient Greek philosopher who could be considered a hedonist.
Correct Answer: epicurious.com
Awesome Wrong Answer from The Undead Last Unicorn: Platoplenty.com

That was an inspired guess, TULU – somebody should snatch that domain name up!

Are you Christopher Guest fans out there studying up for the next lunar quiz, Corky Smells The Glove? His mockumentaries aren’t going to watch themselves, people! And while you’re at it, take fashion notes . . . costumes are encouraged (I’m thinking of dressing as Busy Bee). The venue is Peter’s 19th Hole, the date is July 11th, and the time is 7 PM – be there!
