Last Chance To Vote!

May 15, 2016

Today is the last day to vote in Best of the Triangle 2016. Polls close at midnight.

My trivia night is a finalist and I would dearly love to win this thing. Why? There’s no money, no perks and very little prestige but I can lord it over all my enemies, so that’s something.

Please go to indyweek.com and find the Best Of The Triangle balloting. Look for the Out & About section and scroll down to Trivia Night In Durham County. Click on Tomato Jake’s Pizzeria and follow the prompts to make your vote counts.

It’ll take a few minutes, tops, but make me very grateful. Also, if I win, I promise to make sure everyone can get The Independent for free!

April 27 Trivia Rankings

April 27, 2016

It was a beautiful evening for trivia, Quizlings. Thanks to my Greg Fishel voodoo doll, the thunderstorms were kept at bay and we managed to get through five rounds of awesomeness, including one bonus round that deceptively had very little to do with Cher. But if I could turn back time,  I believe I might do things differently and make it all about Glen’s favorite dark lady. Sigh. If only I were strong enough.

Please vote for Tomato Jake’s for Trivia Night In Durham County in the Indyweek‘s Best Of The Triangle 2016 (in the Out & About category). Screen cap that balloting goodness and send it to me and I will reward you. Promise!

Meanwhile, if you’re interested in buying the X-Mansion, lemme know. I’ll go halfsies.

Now, here are this week’s trivia rankings. See you next time, Quizlings!

Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play. A few of you regulars were missed so we sure hope to see you next week.

In the meantime, please VOTE for us over at indyweek.com  in Best Of The Triangle (polls close Sunday). I do this trivia thing because I love to do it.

BestOfTriangleVOTE

POLLS CLOSED!

Woo hoo! It’s that time of year again! What time? Time to VOTE in Indy Week’s Best of the Triangle for 2015.

Okay, yeah – you’ve got important things to do but if you don’t mind and you’re so inclined I would certainly appreciate it. Here’s the skinny:

Go to indyweek.com and vote for as many Triangle-area businesses, people and things as your heart desires. You’ll have to register but that’s relatively painless. PLEASE NOTE: You must vote for at least 25  to have your ballot count. You can come back to your ballot and finish it any time until polls close on April 26.

Ulterior motive? You got me. I’d love your vote for Best Blog and certainly think  Tomato Jake’s Pizzeria deserves Best Trivia Night in Durham County. But the voting is up to you. Just spread the word. The more people who vote, the more accurate results should be. Voters do not necessarily have to live in the Triangle – just have an opinion about the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill vicinity.

Best of the Triangle at indyweek.com. Please VOTE early and often. Thanks so much.

[It is now after April 26, so too late to vote this year. I hope you did already vote and I hope I win. If I do win, I promise to use the immense wealth and power the honor brings to end world hunger and create a new understanding between all peoples.]
