September 27 Trivia Rankings

September 28, 2017

Eights years, Quizlings! And it seems like only yesterday we started this l’il Q&A party we like to call Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia. It was actually 2009 which reminds me of the quote often attributed to Groucho Marx: “Time flies like an arrow – fruit flies like a banana.”

Thanks to all who came out to play and celebrate with us. Some lucky Quizling got a hotel night’s stay for two. Others walked off with gift cards to Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks, Tomato Jake’s bucks and some free ice cream coupons. Plus there was a nifty Mario t-shirt and some other cool swag. Plus: AUDIO QUIZ!!!!

If you missed it, you miss tons of fun including huge-ass diamonds, Galilean moons and the devil at the United Nations. Plus there was this lovely meme:

dysentery

Now let’s see how the teams stacked up…

The Dog Days Are Here!

September 26, 2017

This Wednesday, we’re wrapping up Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia’s 8th Anniversary celebration with a raffle – and it’s still not too late to get in on the fun!

The raffle will be for, among other things, a free night’s stay for two at a nifty Durham hotel. You get one raffle ticket just for playing (one per week). The raffle is only open to Quizlings 18 and above due to the nature of the prize.

You can also pick up extra raffle tickets for bringing a newbie, posting a flier to our trivia night and donating a new dog toy for our canine pals. How many extra raffle tickets? Two per item! And there’s no limit this week on how many of each you can claim. Seriously! Bring 56 newbies and get 112 extra raffle tickets! Post 139 fliers (and show me proof) and get 278 extra raffle tickets! Bring 3,861 new dog toys to donate to the pooches on the patio and get 7,722 extra – and I’m out of tickets. Crap, I didn’t think this through. Well, let’s cap them all “within reason” and see how it goes, okay? But the main idea is to bring someone who’s never played trivia at Jake’s before, post fliers to alert the unfamiliar and bring new dog toys because there’s nothing like seeing a dog smile.

Spread the word! Bring your friends! Bring your enemies (best to keep them closer)! Just help us celebrate 8 years of fantastic trivia at Tomato Jake’s Pizzeria!

The Dog Days of Trivia

September 20, 2017

We’re celebrating Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia’s Eighth Anniversary All MONTH LONG and it’s still not too late to get in on the fun!

On September 27, we’re holding our raffle for, among other things, a free night’s stay for two at a nifty Durham hotel. You don’t have to be present to win and you get one raffle ticket just for playing (one per week). The raffle is only open to Quizlings 18 and above due to the nature of the prize.

You can also pick up extra raffle tickets for bringing a newbie (one per week), posting a flier to out trivia night (one per week) and donating a new dog toy for our canine pals (no limit).

So, doing the math, if you come out to play this week and bring a friend who’s never been to our trivia night before and you show me a picture of a flier you posted on a public bulletin board where local folks can view it and you bring five new dog toys to donate, then that’s … mumbling under breath … carry the one … eight raffle tickets you get this week alone! That’s some major odds in your favor!

Spread the word! Bring your friends! Bring your enemies (best to keep them closer)! Just help us celebrate 8 years of fantastic trivia at Tomato Jake’s Pizzeria throughout the month of September!
