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 …

May 10 Trivia Rankings

May 10, 2017

Some fun was had, some questions were posed and a winner was declared. Of course, there was more to it than that. There were four-letter words, Latin elements and a bark lion sentinel dog named Lucky. Plus, there was this musical monstrosity:

May 3 Trivia Rankings

May 3, 2017

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!

April 26 Trivia Rankings

April 26, 2017

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?

April 12, 2017

What a lovely night! The weather cooperated very nicely and let’s hope it continues to oblige. So come back next week, Quizlings, and let’s enjoy the beautiful spring weather.

Meanwhile, what did learn tonight? We learned not every NC county with the name of a president was named after a president … there was life before Game Of Thrones (although few remember it) … and one of the Wright Brothers flew 852 feet on that first (fourth) flight.

Oh and there was this lively character (all you 90s kids can bring him up at your next therapy session)…

March 29 Trivia Rankings

March 29, 2017

Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play. It was a lovely night and even though that final round gave some a case of the fits I believe most enjoyed themselves.

What did we learn? Napoleon spent time on more than one island … amateur radio buffs may like meat but not acronyms … and old, dead guys can still have some good music.

Oh – and that lake in South America has a funny name…

March 22 Trivia Rankings

March 22, 2017

It was windy and chilly outside but the trivia inside Tomato Jake’s was inviting. And – whew! – another close game, Quizlings! One in which we learned that Sparky’s no fun and knows how to disappoint a woman (though that latter point could have easily been guessed). Also there was talk of belly speaking, British toads and token changes.

Oh and check this out:

March 15, 2017

What a great night, Quizlings! Thanks to all who braved the icy chill and took part in a pretty impressive round of trivia (if I do say so myself – and I do). We got to learn about Scrabble, St. Patrick’s Day legends and how the US of A is apparently nothing but a bunch of gambling addicts. PLUS – one lucky team got their prize doubled thanks to the 100+ attendance!
