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…
