March 22 Trivia Rankings

March 22, 2017

It was windy and chilly outside but the trivia inside Tomato Jake’s was inviting. And – whew! – another close game, Quizlings! One in which we learned that Sparky’s no fun and knows how to disappoint a woman (though that latter point could have easily been guessed). Also there was talk of belly speaking, British toads and token changes.

Oh and check this out:

March 15 Trivia Rankings

March 15, 2017

What a great night, Quizlings! Thanks to all who braved the icy chill and took part in a pretty impressive round of trivia (if I do say so myself – and I do). We got to learn about Scrabble, St. Patrick’s Day legends and how the US of A is apparently nothing but a bunch of gambling addicts. PLUS – one lucky team got their prize doubled thanks to the 100+ attendance!

What a lovely night for trivia, Quizlings. Feels like spring is here and we’ll be sitting outside before we know it – of course, as long as the weather cooperates [Sparky sticks another pin in his Greg Fishel voodoo doll].

What did we learn this week? Scott Bakula did not star in a plural TV show, Sudoku math is not that hard and Milo Ventimiglia is hot (although we may already have known that last one). Plus there was this morsel of tastiness…
