Pub Quiz
Dr. Jordan

The strange and wonderful (or wonderful and strange) collection of Quiz denizens were seen to gather again. There were video feeds from living rooms, dining rooms, and maybe a bathroom or two, but we aren't sure about that.

Naomi of the North and Mary O'Shag asked some questions. Apparently much was learned about bras. Alcohol seemed to have been consumed.

Pets and children were seen, trash was talked, and apparently side conversations were conducted.

This will all happen again tomorrow, except (probably) for the bra education.

Wear something interesting tomorrow, preferably on your head, where it can be seen without too much trauma.

PS--for those who were especially puzzled, this is a longline bra.

Mary O'Shag

A tarboosh by another name would wear as well.

What would you call a one-inch grub transformed by radiation?

Man - what couple weeks, am I right?

Just when we were debating whether or not to cancel Pub Quiz, ultimately deciding to not do it for the safety of our enthusiastic players, the city shut down. Damn.

But here we are, in our separate homes, hopefully staying nice and safe.

Let's look at the bright side:

Ummmmmm... alternate side parking is suspended? The moon isn't crashing into Earth? I dunno, guys.

Oh! Hey! We had Pub Quiz last week! Remotely! It was like HQ, but without any real prizes! (so just HQ, I guess)

It was a growing experience, but I think we all learned a little something. Mainly, how to use the mute button on a conference call. And hopefully not to go to the bathroom on a video chat.

Anyway, I think Red Shoes won, but they were keeping score, so who knows? Their prize was a decapitated head I ripped off of the old Quizmaster's Cup. I'm sure they're very excited.

We'll try it again tomorrow and see how it works out! See you then!

Here's a hint for tonight: make sure you're on the UPQ Facebook Page at 8PM EST!

To Our Uptown Pub Quiz Regulars,

We've always appreciated the sense of closeness at our quiz, the interpersonal connections, the reliability of staying in contact with each other each week, and the fact that you all seem to value witty repartee above perfect hygiene.

For all these reasons, we've got to put our in-person quiz on hold during Coronavirupalooza. We at the UPQ feel it would be irresponsible to pack everyone into BBB right now. We're not sure how long this will go on for, so please stand by for further instructions.

In good news, our technology department is trying to figure out alternative mechanisms for delivering weekly Wednesday trivia to you (we know you have nothing else to do that night). If we can figure out how to use a computer we'll try to have something set up for this week, but that's very much up in the air right now. Again, please stand by.

Evil Mr. Phil

This week's quiz was a rollicking good time. The Sadiest showed up in all her finery and had rounds on proms, dozens, and cities, while I had rounds on other things that were probably not proms, dozens, or cities (I really gotta start writing this stuff down).

We heard some fun prom music from the 80s and even sang along to a few of the songs. What could be better? We finished the night with another tie breaker which allowed Burger of the Month In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb Burger to squeak by Tears 4 Queers and win for the night. Fun fact, this was our 9th quiz at BBB and our 7th tiebreaker.

In other news, we hope you're all coping with the disruptions from covid-19 and managing to wash your hands thoroughly and keep your fingers out of your nose and such. We're not sure yet how the quiz will be affected by all this, so stand by and follow or our Facebook page for updates.
