Tue February 5 at 6:30 PM, Phoenix Landing
512 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
Our trivia venue plans are a bit in flux at present, but we were happy to hear that Quizmaster Travis will be hosting a charity fundraising quiz Tuesday night at Phoenix Landing.
DiscourseMarker and I are happy to cover the entry fee, but please be vigilant about prompt RSVPing since headcount especially matters. Note that the quiz will start at 7:00 sharp so please be there well ahead.

Sounds good! I'll do my best to leave work directly at 5:00.

I can’t make this one, but what’s going on with the venue plans? One day I will be back at trivia again!

Geeks Who Drink fired Travis, whom we quite like, after he laid into another quizmaster apparently spouting racist and misogynistic options on a GWD message board. The most recent session with a substitute host was kind of a shambles.

Boo GWD, hooray for Travis! Catch you guys at the next one, I hope!

Well, shit. Did the racist guy get off the hook? If so that’s giving me pause about doing anything GWD again.

I think he’s appealing the decision, so we may hear an update tonight. But yeah, it’s concerning.

racist and misogynistic options
Sorry, opinions.
