Local 44 Quizzo + Beer

Sun March 24 at 9:00 PM, Local 44
4333 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, PA, USA (Map & Directions)
Quizzo anyone? A couple of us were talking about going to Local 44 for their 9pm Sunday night quizzo.
I know it's not convenient for everyone, but at least a couple of us should be able to make it (and maybe some new West Philly faces can join in!). Local 44 is only a few blocks from the El (or busses from Center City go right by it) and their Quizzo is decent and food and beer are great.

So what weekend is good for people? I'm looking at March 17th or 24th. (10th is... too soon, and after that will probably conflict with board games.)

Let's do the 24th!

If anyone else wants to go this weekend, I'll plan on heading over ~8:30/:45... let me know! There will definitely be a few of us going this Sunday (March 10), so join us if you'd like! I don't think it's worth it's own IRL event, so just post in here / MeMail me / show up.

I'd come out for this, but I'm out of town on the 24th. The 17th is St. Patrick's Day and I honestly have no idea if that makes going to a bar (or trying to navigate traffic or public transit) a bad idea that night - does anyone know?

I would do this Sunday though you're probably right that most people want more lead time than that.

9 PM is really too late for me for something that far away so I think I will have to pass on this one.

Local 44 is sort of on the edge between 'areas where St. Patrick's Day is a normal night' vs 'areas where St. Patrick's Day is a total nightmare.' I wouldn't chance it.

I would totally come out on the 24th though, and possibly bring other people!

Totally forgot about St Pattys day. How about we do a "test run" for whoever wants to come this Sunday? And then the 24th for the "real" meetup to give people time to plan?

I had fun at the last Quizzo, even though I was able to contribute *nothing* :) But I'll have to pass on the late night Sundays - I've got to get up way too early on Mondays.

I'm up for whatever, whenever.

I will come out for this!

I'll come out this Sunday, even though I know full well it is a terrible decision for my Monday morning. Is anyone else interested in a trial run on Sunday the 10th?

I might not be able to make it this Sunday, but the 24th should be a lot better for me.

Also, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to just pop in and say coming or not or introduce myself, soooooo we'll go with a quick introduction. I'm Greg, and I've actually met a few of you at past meetups, but now I have my own spiffy name because someone's awesome.

I could make this Sunday, but would have to leave early-ish to make sure I'm not a zombie on Monday.

I'm new to MeFi, although I've been reading it obsessively for a while and I'd like to meet new folks. How will I recognize y'all?

I have a bright blue jacket so I'll try to put it somewhere visible and you can look for that!
posted by DoubleLune at 9:26 AM on March 9, 2013

So, we're on for tonight, yes?
posted by lazaruslong at 11:35 AM on March 10, 2013

I am having serious doubts about my ability to stay awake late enough to make it tonight, alas. I had a really late night last night, followed by houseguests who were loud past my bedtime and loud again before I was ready to wake up in the morning. It's possible I'll have enough energy to put in an appearance tonight but it is looking unlikely. I hope a bunch of you still make it and have a great time, though!

Yes this is happening. (I have a friend tagging along tonight too.)

Hope you feel better jessypie!

Ugh, I had forgotten about the time change. I'm wiped out enough that means I'm going to have skip tonight :( Will be there next time!
posted by ashworth at 2:06 PM on March 10, 2013

I'm sorry, I'm going to have to back out last minute. My anxiety is acting up, which means I can't be in a pubquiz environment. Hopefully next time, and sorry for the late notice.

Well then I think this is not happening tonight. Just as well... my hangover set in about 3/4 of the way into driving home from the other side of the state, so I've just been napping since I got back.

I'm in for March 24! My time left in Philly is short. Mefi meetups, I hardly knew ye :(

I've been trying to find out their team limits etc., but apparently nobody who works there knows (okay, not true -- I forgot to ask the bartender, the guys at the bottle shop have no idea). They're usually pretty chill there though, so if they give us any trouble I can pull the "being a regular" card.

Hope everyone who was planning on coming a couple weeks ago can still make it!
posted by DoubleLune at 5:19 PM on March 21, 2013

I'm pretty sure the limit is 6, but we could always split into factions...
posted by Katine at 11:25 AM on March 22, 2013

Yeah I just got an email back and team limit is 6. (But no worries -- easy enough to split up if enough people show.)

It'll probably be easier to stay in the bar area, but if people are ordering food or if the dining room isn't busy we can sit there. I've never seen the dining room busy during quizzo, but you never know.

Hey I'm not going to make it tonight. I have an early admission in the hospital tomorrow (part of my job not me personally!)
posted by Katine at 4:38 PM on March 24, 2013

I'm here super early (it's been a long week...end) and flashbullzeye is here too. We're at the corner of the bar just inside the front door.
