November 25th Trivia Rankings

November 26, 2015

Many thanks to the Quizlings that came out to play in a pre-Turkey Day trivia feast. Someone went home one Butterball richer and we learned that a majority of people agree it’s just too damn early for Christmas music!

I hope everyone has a great holiday, however you celebrate or don’t celebrate. Me, I’ll be working and volunteering and coming up with questions for next Wednesday’s trivia night. Don’t miss a week of it – we’ll be quizzing at Tomato Jake’s on through the holidays and into the New Year without skipping a beat.

And so … just to prove I don’t make this stuff up (except for athletic birthdates) …
