June 21 Trivia Rankings

June 21, 2017

A smaller than usual crowd this week (missing some regular Quizlings – come back soon ‘ciz we got ice cream) but the competition was fierce. A very close game, when all is said and done. And along the way we went Down Under, said “Goodnight, Moon” and met some billionaires. Then things got icy (sorry about that).

Oh and there was this invention map:

June 14 Trivia Rankings

June 14, 2017

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!

And there was this magnificent moment of celeb awkwardness…

Covfefe, Quizlings. I hoped you covfefed this week’s covfefe. It was a covfefe evening full of covfefe and covfefe. And, of course, covfefe.

Along the covfefe we covfefed about the Civil War, Australia’s covfefe and Wall Street’s urinating covfefe.

Plus there was covfefe covfefe covfefe covfefe covfefe:

May 24 Trivia Rankings

May 25, 2017

Thanks to all the Quizlings who braved the Greg Fishel-created drenching to come out and play trivia. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a wee bit and it wasn’t so much a drenching as a sprinkling – but Fishel does control the weather and I stand by that!

We learned about cooking measurements, Billboard icons and catfish. And some of us didn’t quite learn that comedy is tragedy plus time.

Oh and there was this …

May 17 Trivia Rankings

May 17, 2017

The night was hot but the trivia was cool … or was that the pizza was hot and the ice cream was cool. Did someone say “ice cream?” Settle down, Quizlings. It’s not summer yet.

But it won’t be long.

What did we learn? Dinosaurs can have really cool names, NATO was exclusive in the early days and the Sex Pistols’ made a little into a lot. Plus we almost got into a sing along over this one …

What a fun night – and a lovely night – for trivia! Thanks to all the Quizlings who made it out to play. I hope you had half as much as I did (ideally, I hope you had twice as much fun but let’s start with realistic expectations if we’re ever gonna get anywhere in this relationship).

Along the way, we learned about meteorology, French cheese and Mr. Irrelevant. Plus, we learned the importance of always reading the fine print!

What a lovely night and a lovely crowd of Quizlings (what’s the collective noun for Quizlings – a query?). Thanks to all who came to play. Missing a few regulars though – don’t stay gone too long or your mom and I may turn your room into a home gym.

Topics of convo were the Fast and the Furious, the 1889 World’s Fair and former homes of the Fonz’s favorite team (the A’s). Oh! And did anyone notice we got a new pinball machine?
