Two New Venues – Frak Yeah!

Saturday, November 6th, 2010
Halloween’s Vampire quiz was such a great
night! So many people came, played, and won trophy fangs and True Blood paper
dolls
that I handed out for each round, not to mention the team of
Sookies who won a Dracula Pez dispenser! But there could only be one
champion to win the bar cash, the trophy, and the wicked-awesome Dracula
drawing that East Burn’s
excellent server Erica created just for us. That team, who also won the
right to rename the corner booth of the bar “The Forbidden Zone,” is Chupacandlabra!
:



Sad you missed all the fun? No worries –
there’s so much more coming your way! For example, this Monday, 7:00 at Ella
Street Social Club
, you’ll get a chance to play The Best Frakking
Quiz in the Universe
! Margaret
is not only a wonderful trivia jockey,
but she has scored some amazing prizes from the EMP’s
Battlestar Galactica Exhibition
for you guys . . . in addition of
course to a trophy & gift certificates to the bar. And I am all
geekily excited because I actually get to play! Mind you, even if I were
to somehow magically kick ass and earn the high score, I will NOT
accept prizes, nor the title of victor – those are for YOU people! In
fact, I am risking a great deal of embarrassment by devising special
recognition for any team that scores higher than me on each round . . . I
expect to give out a lot of “I beat the trivia jockey!” certificates on
Monday! And just to reiterate what will be covered, the quiz will
basically be about the “re-imagined” series, with a dash of the original
series and “Caprica.”

If you are NOT a nerd, then you should go to the Triviology debut at Da’Hui on Monday at
8:00, which will be hosted by this woman:


Michele
was a great sport to go all the way to the Dum-Dum factory in Ohio just
to buy fresh lollipops for us, so now I’ve given her an assignment
closer to home. She will be your weekly trivia jockey at this SE Foster
venue. Michele will also be your regular hostess at  Cruzroom
, though I will host the premiere of this
Alberta venue this Tuesday. As a thanks to you for coming to these
debuts, we will be handing out extra prizes on both nights.

For tomorrow’s 2 PM trivia, you’ll need to
raid your piggy bank for the The Slammer! Your
first bloody mary is $4, and your second will cost you a penny! You can
practically make a meal out of The Slammer’s bloody mary bar – add green
beans, asparagus, pickles, baby corn, mushrooms, celery, etc. Sure
sounds like a
Breakfast of Champions to me!

Blood Sucking Quizzery Tonight!

Monday, November 1st, 2010
From Bela to Buffy, from Stoker to Sookie, and from Polidori to The Coreys . . . tonight’s the night you’ve been waiting for, suckers! All things vampirish are fair game at tonight’s Triviology at East Burn (6:00 @ 1800 E. Burnside). I will be your guide, as I challenge your knowledge of the films, literature, history, TV, etc. of blood suckers. And here’s a little something to get you “in the mood”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8tODhvb47s

If you are still thirsty for something bloody on November 6th, come to the Breakfast of Champions at The Slammer! Every Saturday at 2, we compliment the quizzery with biscuits and gravy and a bloody mary bar. But this weekend, we’ve got something extra special planned, to get you out of the house to play in the daytime! I will bring in extra prizes, but perhaps more importantly, your first bloody mary will cost you $4.00 . . . and your second will cost you one red cent! Whenever you see a penny this week, remember that fun & quizzery await you . . . don’t miss it! Also, please note that I’ve added some hot fresh new venues, with debuts coming soon . . .
