I’ve just returned home from a fun evening at the Blackthorn Tavern, the unofficial bar of the N Judah Chronicles. Thanks to the pub trivia superheroes, recruited by Anna from SF Metblogs, we not only had a great time, we won! Woo hoo!
If you’re in to pub trivia and have a free Monday, the Blackthorn’s deal, co-sponsored by Brainstormer, is a pretty good one. Not only do they offer a drink special, and free food (tonight’s was chicken curry!), you have the chance to win fabulous prizes. Most importantly, the vibe of the crowd is fun, and win or lose, you’re bound to have a great time.
We made a bit of a splash when we named our team Stop Global Warming, Ban Burning Man, which was kind of funny. Plus, I got to meet several of the Loyal Readers in person, which was even more fun, including the wonderful person who bought our first BBM t-shirt. Thanks for reading the site!
It’s always nice to meet folks who read the site and offer some feedback, and it’s especially fun after a Pilsner Urquell and racking one’s brain about James Bond trivia, and figuring out who the oldest Rolling Stone is.
Most importantly, it was an evening of good fun in a good locally owned business with good people. Can I use the word “good” any more times in one sentence? Yes? Good.
UPDATE: I got a nice note from Quizmaster (and Loyal Reader) Stan, who hosted last night’s event! Check it out!
Thanks for the great writeup of the quiz last night at the Blackthorn. Thomas had mentioned to me after the quiz that the blogger of the N Judah Chronicles was one of the guys who I’d called out for a prize.
I’m a semi-regular reader of your blog (I live on 21st and Judah), so I was thrilled. I’m glad you had a good time. Did I say “good?”
Come by and say hello when you’re in the Blackthorn for the quiz again. I’m enclosing the pic I took of your team last night, which will be posted this week on the Blackthorn quiz page. You can use it on your blog if you wish, since you’re in this one.
Stan the quizmaster
thanks for organizing Greg! As usual I obsess on the errors…
Thanks for the thumbs up Greg, I’ll have to bribe you with a good stiff drink when I’m on next.
