September 19 Trivia Rankings

September 20, 2018

What a lovely night for trivia. Thanks to one and all who came out to play. A light turnout, to be sure, but I’m happy to see all Quizlings  under any circumstances.

Next week is our 9th anniversary and the end to the Dog Days of Trivia. We’ll raffle off that gift basket (may be more of a gift bag, we’ll see), have some 9th anniversary fun  and generally engage in the usual triviawesomess. Tell your friends! BRING your friends! Let’s blow out this sucker in style!

This week, we grabbed a ride on SpaceX, read some Highlights and tasted Notorious whiskey. Plus there was this commercial featuring two then-future Oscar winners…

And if you haven’t been hip to the meme, check out the origin of “Sluggo is lit” in a recent Nancy comic:

September 12 Trivia Rankings

September 13, 2018

If you weren’t there because you were hunkered down somewhere because of Flo then you missed a fun night of trivia. Remember always that Tomato Jake’s goes on, rain or shine (barring major holiday or snowstorm, of course). To the hearty few who ventured out: Thank you, Quizlings! You make my heart sing – wait … no, sorry, that’s Wild Thing. You, Quizlings, make me proud to be a Quizmaster!

The Dog Days of Trivia continue. We’ll draw for that gift basket on September 26. You must be present to win but that is two more weeks to bring your pooch to the patio and get a raffle ticket. It’s also our 9th Anniversary so let’s celebrate that as well.

This week, we talked about weird shapes on other planets, baseball legends who can’t be killed and everyone’s favorite cinematic couple. Plus there was this musical blast from the past…

Now check out this week’s team rankings. And be there next Wednesday for more Tomato Jake’s trivia featuring yours truly, Sparky Mac!

September 6, 2018

A lovely Wednesday night for trivia. Some new faces, to be sure – but missing some familiar ones. I know September is a month of transition but come back to play with us, Quizlings! You are definitely missed.

For those who were there, it was all about presidential doughnuts, mathematical constants, snack food football and Cheers PSAs. Plus there was this I’ve-never-heard-of-that! cinematic moment:

The weather was hot but the trivia was hotter. In fact, it seems that last round may have been incendiary! Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play. Have a safe Labor Day and we’ll see you next week, okay?

This week we chatted about Neil Simon’s legacy (it’s not Rent), the proper way to raise your young’uns and what George Clooney would look like in a dress. But there was this wee flightless fowl as well…

Next week: Get a raffle ticket by bringing a pooch to the patio or by showing me a photo of you dressed up as an animal. Could be an old Halloween costume or some neat-o cosplay or just that furry fetish you toyed around with during college (I ask no questions) – just show me the monkey (you dressed as one, that is)!

This week, we dined on Pop-Tarts and Slurpees, gave out some Nobel prizes and played some Tetris. What fun! Plus there was this Iron Horse memory…

Next week: your exotic pet photos. But no spiders. (You think I’m joking? Try it, matey. I don’t want to see any arachnids unless one’s about to give me radioactive spider powers.)

I think we’ll raffle off that #DogDaysOfTrivia gift basket on September 29 – the date we’ll observe our ninth anniversary! Make plans to come out and celebrate with us!

July 25 Trivia Rankings

July 26, 2018

A little dampness didn’t keep you Quizlings away from another wonderful week of trivia. No pooches on the patio but the Dog Days of Trivia continue. And if you don’t have a doggie to drag out to play then consider these options to enter our raffle:

August 1 – Bring a photo of your pet cat

August 8 – Bring a photo of your pet dog (invalid if dog is present)

August 15 – Bring a photo of your exotic pet

August 22 – Bring a photo of yourself dressed up as an animal

August 29 – Bring in a stuffed animal

You can get one ticket per week following the above scheme but it gets you a bite at the gift basket apple. We’ll raffle that bad boy off at the end of the summer (you must be present to win).

This week? We put our best foot forward (the left one), celebrated the Great White North and filled our target hole. Plus there was this candy commercial from the Golden Age of Television…

I love my Quizlings! Honestly, you lot need to understand that. Wednesday night trivia is the highlight of my week (sorry, family) and all of you kind folks who come out to play each week make that happen. Many thanks for that.

What happened this week? We learned how long it takes to get to the moon, who really invented the telephone and how quickly we forget losing running mates. And then there was this boxing moment…
