Last night Schmizza packed in more teams and people than I thought possible!
Not only did we have 40+ people there for quiz, PLUS people there just for delicious, delicious food, but I had to actually delay the quiz for 15 minutes while I printed out more copies of the answer sheets! That’s right, I actually had to ask for directions to Kinko’s, since it’s been awhile since I’ve had a printing emergency on the PSU campus.
Luckily I was saved from what would surely have been $9,000 to print out 15 sheets (damn you, Kinko’s), because a generous, and more importantly local, pub quizzer let me use her printer next door. It was one thing after another when her printer ran out of ink on the 2nd page we printed. Of course it did =) Did you know replacing ink catridges on a Mac requires both software and hardware, and about 10 million steps? It all turned out okay as we kept our cool and used teamwork to overcome the reality-show-like challenge that almost turned into some sort of high-tech scavenger hunt (“Which ink cartridges does it want replaced?” ”I don’t know!”). Thanks again Angie!
Congratulations to the winners of the actually really big pot – Number 1 Booth!
There were three ladies on their team, but I believe it was their first pub quiz – they looked at me funny when I asked if they wanted their winner’s picture on the blog. I think they thought it was my personal, creepy blog. Which is not this blog, but somewhere else. This is where I laugh like a weirdo, and make a frowny face for them not wanting to be part of the blog.
In second place came There Is No Darren, Only Zuul! I probably misspelled something in there again (Darrin? Zul?) but that’s alright. It’s forgivable I think.
Third place went to The Elaine Benes Dance Academy, who were strong all night, but bet low hoping for a super-tough final challenge question. It was a little easier than that (I think) and the other two teams got it right for the cashy-cash.
Overall, a very beautiful night at Schmizza, with a very beautiful packed house. I’ll be back next week for more! Hope to see y’all there.
