Quiz Night!

A wise man once said, "If you put your vibe out into the universe, the universe will respond", or something along those lines*. Well, I've been putting out the trivia vibe into the universe recently (reading Ken Jennings's Braniac, watching Jeopardy as often as possible, and composing a little trivia challenge of my own (to be released at the next game night)). The universe did its job and responded brilliantly.

The Back Porch Cafe (the cute little cafe/restaurant/food-buying-for-eating* place connected to The Business) held its first monthly (or so they say) Quiz Night. There were 5 teams of four members each. Play consisted of 2 30-minute rounds in written format. Topics included 80s metal*, geography, food additives, the heart, Antarctica, and pictures of dudes (as seen here). While the style of these questions didn't quite suit me, I had a great time nonetheless.

After a rout in the first round putting us in the lead by 5.5 points, we got to feeling pretty cocky. Yep, we aced geography and food additives. Round 2, however, we didn't do so hot, getting only 1.5 points on the pictures of dudes category*. In the end, we came in second by a lousy half a point. Oh well, there is always next month. I, for one, will definitely be there.

I am wondering the same thing as Joe, is this open to the public? Or by special invite only?

Mr. Turtle and Wilbur, quiz night is open to all! This time around, you had to form your own teams before coming, but motion was made to have draw of the hat team selection for next time (to which I am opposed). Keep an eye out at The Business for flyers advertising next time, or maybe I will try to post about it here.

Um. . . I hovered & all I got was "click to close" (for all of them). For some reason, I don't think that's right.

Oh, and by "Marcel Proust" I meant "Nikola Tesla". . . I'm still hovering & nothing happens.

well i saw something about hovering but it dont seem to work for me and apparently it dont work for others either...wren whats the story here?

For the hovering action, hover over the letter in the comments where I posted the answer. So, if you want to know the real name of Vicini, hover over the "D" in the comment I posted, not on the picture. If it still doesn't work, it means your browser sucks and you should use firefox.
