It's amazing what a little Press will do to your favorite trivia night. (The alt-weekly named the Maple Leaf the best place to spend a Thursday night.) Last time was very crowded and very noisy, to the point of spending the audio round outside on the patio so that the questions could be heard. Despite that, "Gordon Ramsay Sex Dwarf" tied for 4th. So, we're on for Thursday, eh? Meet at 7 for yummy, yummy steak; trivia's at 8.

I'm confused, are we proposing both Tuesday and Thursday this week?

No, Thursday this week, Tuesday in two weeks.

Eek, I might have to sit this out because I need my Thursday night this week. But in a couple weeks, on the 20th I would do some trivia - and I may potentially have the opportunity to import us a katemonster, who is a trivia champ, as you will recall.

We'll be there.

Or possibly not, it turns out. Dang.

Guys, I'm not gonna be able to make it. As much as I'd like to raise several glasses to Steve Jobs, the fact that I'm on very strong narcotics for my (again) busted shoulder makes that unlikely. Good luck and have fun! AND WIN WIN WIN! :-)

Even though I'm not gonna be there, here's a heads-up, via the GWD e-mail, on some of the categories to expect tonight:

Celebrity Deaths in Not Quite Threes
Conspicuous Lesbians
Frogs and the French
Genre Rock
Recently In Stuff

Good luck and have fun! :-)

And from their Twitter: Tonight's R1 is called "Sometimes Birds Have Two Meanings."

We ("Kneel Before Zod Except After C") started off strong and were tied for third after three rounds, but a couple of movie rounds in a row put us in a tight spot we never recovered from. The people who were in the bar for hockey weren't any help either. We wound up in an embarrassing 13th place. Better luck next time!

Now that hockey season is on again ... well, this makes the alternate venue in EaDo look perhaps more attractive? Great team name y'all :-)
