June 20 Trivia Rankings

June 21, 2018

What a great night for trivia, my Quizlings! I sure hope you were part of it all – the fun and the ice cream and the Dunkin Donuts gift cards. If you missed it, we’re doing it again next week (the trivia, that is – I can’t speak to the ice cream or the donuts).

This week, we were all about Big Apple big wigs, LEGO maniacs and shake, shake, shakey pop music. And, of course, there was this forgotten television – um, gem?

Now here are all the teams, ranked from highest to lowest (someone’s gotta occupy the end bits). See you next week!

April 26, 2018

Thanks to all the Quizlings who made it out to play this week. It’s a busy, transitional time of the year for many, so I hope to see some missing faces soon. If we fill the place up then Glen might just give us ice cream!

This week it was all about American Girl Dolls, Pulitzer Prizes and Charles Dickens. And because I promised, here’s a behind the scenes look at one of the songs mentioned Wednesday night…

September 6 Trivia Rankings

September 6, 2017

Maybe it was the rain. Maybe it was school. Maybe a late summer vacation. Whatever kept a lot of regulars away … well, it’s all moot, innit? Those who were there know it was a great night for trivia! There was ice cream and a Zelda t-shirt and doggie treats for Sophie and Rosie (two canines not afraid to get a little damp). In short: loads of Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia funzies.

What you missed if you were away? Cookie knock-offs, huge conflagrations and a big-ass LEGO monstrosity. And there was this patriotic cinematic moment…

Now here are the team rankings (and, yes, those are decimal points). How’d you do?

A lovely night for trivia, my Quizlings. We avoided the rain and got some more ice cream courtesy Tomato Jake’s. We met some new folks (and one uber-cute canine), reminisced about 2006 in television and gave one lucky teen a gift for her dad he’ll never forget!

Celebrate Good Times, C’mon!

May 13, 2017

Time was, a good birthday would set you back five, six thousand dollars.

Yep, folks used to have to take out a second mortgage just to celebrate their date of birth. Thankfully, now-a-days, you can have yourself a nice old birthday blowout for around eight bucks. Balloons, cake, ice cream, party favors, the works, all for less than a meal at the Sizzler.

And to think: we owe it all to the humble transistor!

And You Smell Like One Too

June 6, 2016

Went to Baskin Robbins once for my birthday. Only it wasn’t really my birthday. And it wasn’t really a Baskin Robbins. It was a cardboard box in the back yard and I think it was an Arbor Day.

I was an only child. Can you tell?
