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 Trivia Rankings

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)…

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.

Well, we beat the weather, Quizlings. And once again, a great trivia night at Tomato Jake’s was had by all (well, maybe not a certain team whose winning streak had a fork stuck in it by some up and comers – ah, but they love me; they’ll be back.)
