Mon June 27 at 7:30 PM, Tommy Doyle's (Harvard Square)
96 Winthrop St, Cambridge, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
Boston/Cambridge MeFites: Let's continue our dominance of the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz, Monday night at Tommy Doyle's.
Presumably, in the absence of Stanley Cup games, we'll be back on the more spacious second floor, and will be able more easily to spend the gift certificates we accrued last time by our comprehensive pwnage of the competition.

Excellent! I will be a little on the later side again, but will look for the winningest crew on floor two - this a Good Thing!

Out of town that day, but will this be a continued get-together? I could make the next week.

How late does it run? I need to be up pretty early in the morning for work, but would perhaps trade a slightly tired Tuesday for trivial glory on Monday night.

msbrauer, yes, although we've been thinking bi-weekly.

Aizkolari, I believe it's wrapped up a little after 10PM both times we went.

Maybe I will be able to make it this time! If there are any questions on Multics, I WILL WIN.

If by "Multics," you mean 1990's era syndicated sitcoms, you may win. Otherwise, I think you are going way over the plate of beans.

I'll be a little late because I have Italian class on Mondays (just at CCAE across the way, so not that late) but looking forward to this again.

Will anyone be there post-quiz? I usually climb on Monday nights, but I haven't made it to any sort of meetup in ages, so I'm a Maybe with a side of Perhaps After I Climb If Y'all Haven't Gone Home.

Last week the quiz took a while (didn't wrap up til 10:30ish), and I think I was there until quarter of 11, and there were still people there after that. So if that's any indication, people may still be around next week depending on how late you finish up.

Ooh ooh, trivia night? I've never been to one of these, and I've always wanted to go! I'm moving away to New Jersey in a month, so this might be my last chance to get my Boston-area Metafilter on!

I'm in. At least, that is my plan. There may or may not be cookies, depending on how bored/cold I get on Sunday.

These Things keep happening on days when I have other, previously scheduled, Things. I'm really hoping to make the next iteration of this Thing.

Hey everybody. I got the advance email from Geeks Who Drink today tonight's themes will include:
Big-Screen Badasses
For King and Country
Kicking It Old Testament
Pirates, Sex and Candy
Songs That Ran Into a Door

So um, make sure to cram on pirates and the Old Testament before tonight!

Aw, now I have to go just to confirm my suspicion that My Name Is Luka and Voices Carry will both cone up in the sixth round.
posted by Diablevert at 2:20 PM on June 27, 2011

We will be on the second floor.

Zix and I arrived early (I'm one of her plus two--the other bailed) and are having dinner on the ground floor).

Trivia is happening in the basement due to Skeptics upstairs, so look down there for the group.

We are the champions, my friend! Clean sweep for the THREE MeFi teams! It was awesome, it was fun, even if we didn't know any of those movie clips.

See you again July 18!
