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!
