Thanks, Quizlings, for making it a great evening of Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia! The weather was cooperative, we learned about the Winter Olympics and we had the first dog of the year in attendance (yay, Woodley!).

Wow, Quizlings! You never cease to amaze. This week’s game was the highest-scoring, closest game ever at Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia! The lowest score was 57 and all but two teams tied with at least one other. Some amazing statistics there, no matter how you slice it.

Along the way, we talked about how fast we can go in the Tar Heel State, how close is the nearest NHL team and exactly what the plural of mantis is (hint: it’s not manti). Plus, there was this villainous Vulpes:

What a great night! Some new faces and returning faces. Luckily all the faces were attached to actual human bodies otherwise it would have been really gross and probably sticky.

December 13 Trivia Rankings

December 14, 2017

A lovely crowd for a chilly December eve – but in all honesty it would be a lovely crowd for any month or weather condition. Thanks for coming out to play!

Remember: trivia every Wednesday into the New Year. And in that aforementioned New Year there is a Gift Basket Raffle on January 3rd. Get a raffle ticket every week just for playing. You can also get an extra raffle ticket for bringing a newbie (one per week). And you can get your share of FIFTY tickets by posting a flier – post a Tomato Jake’s Trivia Night flier (an official one, please) on any bulletin board where people can see it, take a picture of the posted flier and show me. Post as many as you like – each flier is one share of that 50 raffle ticket pot. Also – for next week only – wear a tacky holiday sweater or tie and get an extra raffle ticket … but you must wear it the entire time you’re at trivia!

This week? It was all about Time covers and Netflix tweets and Elton John’s almost EGOT. And then there was this flashback to the decade of Reagan:
