Philadelphia Quizzo Night

How about a trivia night sometime in December or January?
Admittedly, our last attempt at Quizzo was a flop (Black Sheep turned out to be way too crowded and we ended up having a non-Quizzo hangout at another bar), but there has been some interest in giving it another shot.

I've heard a few votes for Local 44 in West Philly, which has Quizzo at 9 p.m. on Sunday nights. It's a great bar, but I've never been to their Quizzo, so I don't know the team limit size (Google search suggests it is probably 6, which is pretty standard) or how lax they are about letting one or two people show up and hold down a big table. I do know that Local 44 generally has some kind of drinking/eating minimum for people sitting at tables in the dining room.
My own suggestion would be for Nodding Head, which also does Sunday night Quizzo (8:30 p.m.), simply because I've been there for Quizzo a bunch of times and know that it wouldn't be a big deal for one or two people to grab a table and have the rest of the group filter in later. They also have no rules about food/drink minimums. Their team size limit is 7, but you can play with a larger team (though the penalties are pretty harsh, something like -2 points per round for each additional team member).
Does anyone have any other thoughts? There are lots of non-Sunday Quizzos if another day of the week is better. I'm particularly interested in hearing votes for Quizzos that happen a little earlier in the evening, because getting home at or after midnight on a work night does not always do awesome things for my morning the next day.
