Tokyo / all-Japan special Greenery Day get-together

It's easy to lose track, but Golden Week is upon us! Let's celebrate Golden Week's Greenery Day (Monday, May 4) together!. We can all reminisce about Greenery Day events through the ages, exchange Greenery Day trivia (surprisingly, Greenery Day has nothing to do with the American rock band called Green Day), and discuss how Greenery Day has affected our lives. Do you remember where you were the year that "GD" was moved from April 29 to May 4? [more inside]

More Trivia. More Onion Rings. More Winning.

Let’s follow up on the very enjoyable victory of last week, where the admixture of non-regulars (non-Metafilterians, even!) was essential to our success.

This is one of the strangest meetups I’ve seen in a while. I don’t know how these Taters got their trivia stuck in Orleans or why.

T(rivia)hird time’s a charm

MeFi trivia must not succumb to entropy in 2020. There are onion rings to be consumed and arch-rivals to be defeated.

Twenty Twenty Trivia Time

In the body of the post, I propose to describe the life-altering event that Metafilterians will experience as they gather at the George & Dragon, greet those attending for the first time (or the first time in a long time), greet the grizzled veterans of past battles and flex their metaphorical mental muscles.

Warming up for the Slayer

I'm sure the G&D Trivia night will be less Buffy-centric than the one the next night, but that doesn't mean it's a bad idea. Let's go forth and tilt at the windmill that is our Tuesday tradition.

Overclocked Taters

Our triumph last time just goes to show that there's nothing the Taters can't accomplish if there are more of them than technically allowed. Let's flex our trivia muscles again Wednesday night at Orleans.

Trivia with a side of Onion Rings

Emerge from your non-trivia funk to show the world what the hive mind can achieve when it can be bothered to focus on meatspace. Sentient onion rings will assist. [more inside]

Trivia!

Trivia at Cat and Fiddle! This is our first trivia hang as a MeFi IRL posse, but I suspect it is gonna be a hoot. Seattle and Portland seem to do IRL trivia events all the time, so Calgary might as well put ourselves on the map as far as that's concerned. Trivia allegedly starts at 7:30pm; let's plan for a 7pm(ish) meetup! As always, this thread is available on the Day Of, if you're the first person to arrive or if are trying to find the rest of us :)

By George, it’s time again for some head scratching.

We’ve spent a sufficient amount of time resting on our laurels. Let’s gather again for trivia and onion rings. As always, if you haven’t come before, please consider joining us. We were all starry-eyed neophytes at one time and are living proof that trivia causes no immediately perceptible harm.

Trivia like it used to be.

Trivia reboot! Let’s re-establish (that there is a hyphen) our dominance in the trivia world. If you’ve attended before, come again. If you’ve never attended we’d love to see you. We do not let the trivia interfere with enjoying each other’s company.

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!

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.
