The place was certainly Big, even if the trivia wasn't too Easy--let's give Orleans another try.

Tatering Around is filmed before a live studio audience

Back in 2018 I was on a very famous trivia team
They won every two weeks, it was just like a dream
They're called the Taters, and they are Geeks Who Drink
Come out to Phoenix Landing, if you like to think
And you're more Tater than a Mefite
Or you're more Mefite than a Tater

It's the Tatest Bowl of All

Geeks Who Drink is bringing Geek Bowl to Boston this year, and it's time for the Taters to show the world what they know! As the event happens to be a few days before my birthday, DiscourseMarker and I are counting this as my birthday party and will cover the tickets for up to two Tater teams of six people each (tickets can only be bought in sixes). Please RSVP as soon as you can so that I know that whether we can fill out two teams, thanks! SEE BELOW FOR IMPORTANT LOGISTICAL UPDATE 2/14.

True to their tuber roots (see what I did there?) spring is the time when all true Taters head inside to a dark room to answer trivia questions.
