December 21 Trivia Rankings

December 21, 2016

Happy holidays, Quizlings! And many thanks to those who came out to share a pre-Yule triviaganza with us. I guess if you could have made a meal off of the trivia this week it would consist of sufganiyah, provolone, salt, liver, Captain Morgan, Monster Energy Drink and, uh – candles. Not sure if that’s palatable but the trivia sure was fun. We’ll wrap up 2016 next Wednesday with some year-in-review questions and the December raffle (bring those newbies, wear those sweaters and post those fliers).

A fun pre-Turkey Day triviaganza. Thanks to the Quizlings who made it out. Thanks for all the hand turkeys. And thanks for taking that hefty Butterball off our hands (seriously, he was beginning to bum out the other poultry).

What did we learn? Something about turkey protuberances, escaping the Nazis (I hate those guys) and how it’s a nice day for a royal wedding.

November 2 Trivia Rankings

November 2, 2016

A fun night of trivia, Quizlings. Some might even say “intimate” but I don’t want to be accused of sexual harassment. Thanks to everyone who came out to play. If you missed it, you’re obviously a fan of the CMAs. That’s okay – there’ll be more leftover Halloween candy to be had next Wednesday.

Along the way, we learned about pumpkins, presidents and pet costumes. Plus, there were these fine fellows…

October 26 Trivia Rankings

October 26, 2016

Seven years! Wow! Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to celebrate with us. Here are a few…


Lots of prizes, lots of trivia and lots of fun. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Oh – and keep posting those fliers! Spread the word and share the love.

Here are this week’s team rankings. (more…)

Raffle On

October 25, 2016

Hey, Quizlings!  This is it – the culmination of Tomato Jake’s Trivia Night’s seventh anniversary celebration. Join us Wednesday night for the usual trivia awesomeness, capped off with a raffle for a night’s stay for two at the Hyatt Place & dinner for two at the Angus Barn. All it takes is one ticket to win but why not better your odds?

Here are the four ways Quizlings can get a raffle ticket for this week’s drawing:

  1. Be there. Yep, just bring yourself. Everyone 18+ gets a raffle ticket just for playing Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia.
  2. Bring a Newbie. Know a Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia virgin? Bring ’em along. Heck, they don’t even have to play for your team. Any Quizling who brings a Tomato Jake’s Trivia newbie gets an extra raffle ticket. (Only one extra ticket per Quizling. Quizlings and Newbies alike must be 18+ for insurance purposes.)
  3. Post a Flier. If you picked up a Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia flier, then all you have to do is put it on a bulletin board somewhere it will be seen. Work, community center, campus – any place there’s a bulletin board begging for a flier. Next, snap a pic of the posted flier in context (so we know it’s been posted) and show me Wednesday night. I will divvy up 25 raffle tickets between anyone who shows me a pic of a flier posted on a bulletin board. Get that? If 25 people do it, that’s one extra ticket each. If five people do it, that five each. If only one person does this – 25 extra tickets to this lucky Quizling. I’ll always round up so if more than 25 folks show me posted fliers, each will still get one ticket.
  4. Dress up for Halloween! Okay, granted, trick or treat is a few days away but you can field test your costume by wearing it Wednesday night. And I’m talking about really dressing up (not simply putting on an eyepatch and calling yourself a pirate). If you want the extra ticket, put some effort into it. The scarier, the better. Bonus points for creepy clowns!


Spread the word, Quizlings! We’ve loved bringing you Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia for the past seven years and want to keep doing it for at least seven more. We couldn’t do it without you fine folks, so our mega appreciations.

See all you Quizlings Wednesday night!
