March 7 Trivia Rankings

March 8, 2018

What a great night! Over 100 Quizlings in attendance which means the first prize was doubled courtesy of your friendly neighborhood quizmaster. Huzzah! Let’s keep that up, shall we? The awesome attendance, that is – not the, uh, doubling of the first prize (I have a mortgage to pay, after all).

Meanwhile, please NOMINATE Tomato Jake’s for Best Trivia Night in Durham County at under Out & About (wonderful things will come if we win, QM’s promise!).

This week, we celebrated National Cereal Day, listened to some wild music and engaged in some Seussian tongue twisters with a fox.

Plus there was this Oscar moment…

And now let’s see how the teams stacked up this week.

February 24 Trivia Rankings

February 24, 2016

Was it the weather or the game? Either way, a diminished batch of Quizlings came out to play Wednesday night. Yet only one team went home victorious. Along the way, learned about Birthstones and Best Actors. (By the way, if you don’t watch the Academy Awards on Sunday, you’d better have a look at the highlights. I guarantee there will be at least one question about the Oscars.)

Please take a moment and vote for Tomato Jake’s for Best Trivia In Durham County at’s Best Of The Triangle 2016. I would honestly appreciate the support. (And spread the word – one vote for each email address.)

Meanwhile, check out the AKC list of most popular dog breeds, see the FLOTUS list and sing along to A Whole New World
