July 11 Trivia Rankings

July 12, 2018

It was great to see folks out again for an evening of Tomato Jake’s Trivia after a week off for America’s birthday. We got some cool ice cream to offset the heat and some cool trivia to satiate our brains.

The Dog Days of Trivia continue all summer long so bring those pooches out to the patio to get entered in our gift basket raffle (date: TDB, at the end of the season – you must be present to win). I will offer opportunities next month for those who don’t have pets to proffer for prizes.

What did we learn this week? Dinosaurs are cool (except when they sing and dance). Sparky has a lot of Tay Tay on his MP3 player. And corn pone is not what you think. Plus there was this incredible Kentucky-fried guest appearance…

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