Wait - no trivia last week?

Yes, sometimes less important things interfere with the one true transcendent experience that is trivia at the George & Dragon. Let's gather once again this coming Tuesday to enjoy triviality. Come if you can!

Again with the trivia?

Yes. Join us. Onion rings. If you’ve thought of coming for the first time, have come before but not for a while, or are a regular that missed the 20th birthday triumph, here is your chance. This is a happy occasion to be shared.

Trivia: Just ask the Axis

Stretching the hometown hero Jimi theme: Let's do it again! We failed to win this week but were still able to review cgc373’s recent book acquisitions. They were, as usual, edifying and inspirational. But seriously: we did not win because you were not there. Do you want that on your permanent record for another week? I thought not. See you next Tuesday!

Nothing is actually Trivial.

*sssschchchsssss* Hello? *ghghssssghss* Can you hear me? *ssssssss* My illness has carried me to the Other Side and I must warn you of danger. The being who will present itself as Skys#*craper at the George & Dragon on Tuesday is not me. Rescue me but, more impor#(4’tantly, save the known universe by attending trigggghhvia night and wresting my very existence from the grasp of this ghoulish conspiracy, by corrapprmectly answering the trivia challenges - and ignoring the tempting, but erroneous, answers offered by the odious PseudoSkyscraper. Save me. Save humanity. [more inside]

Trivia? Trivia.

Battered but victorious, we move on into the future. Join us! In your thousands! Imagine a world in which all trivia teams, everywhere in the universe, are composed solely of MeFites. That, my friends, is a future we can make happen, if only you - yes you! - believe. If only you act. If only you will share in our onion rings. Join us. [more inside]

Trivia Yet Again

Well, one of our Nemesis teams showed up in full force last week and defeated us 34-31. While it was refreshing to be challenged, it was not refreshing to lose. You could be the difference. As mentioned previously, if you haven’t attended before or haven’t in a while, we would love to have you with us. Some of us who attend frequently are not instrumental in achieving victory, so please don’t feel intimidated. As a bonus, more inside is a response to ChrisR’s challenge for team names playing off our usual “Manifest Destiny’s Child”. I have taken some liberties with his criteria. [more inside]

Broadway Waltz

A very low-key social partner dance: easy to try for newbies; traditional energetic as well as modern gentle music for the partner dances; an open-role dance for those who like it. From 7:20-8pm we teach a free lesson for *total beginners* that will get you through Walking That Counts as Dancing, and give you a try at either rotary waltz or polka, which are gloriously whirly. You don't need to dress up or come with a partner. [more inside]

Trifle at Shakespeare in the Park

I'll bring trifle fixings -- that's cake, custard, fruit, whipped cream, liqueur -- to Volunteer Park before the free Merry Wives of Windsor performance. We can hang beforehand, stay for the play or not. RSVP helps me bring a reasonable amount of trifle. http://www.seattleshakespeare.org/woodeno/
