GTFO Summer

And just like that summer is over. Everything has to go as we start making room for fall questions. No more fucking around with white pants categories. That sweet, sweet, pumpkin spice smell in the air. The kind of questions you need a light jacket for. It really is my favorite trivia season. 

But first we need to start wrapping up those late summer leagues. And who better to do it than the players at Up & Under on Brady Street. I assume Celebrity Guest Host Andy Berg is ready. And Morty Lew stays ready. And if any teams roll in with deep knowledge on hot topics like Phobias, Horses in Popular Culture and Snacks, they are certainly going to kick down a couple doors and take home a win. 

This week is so good. The only complaint I have is the lack of questions about nanaimo bars in the snacks category. To the players who will say “nanaimo bars would be under the deserts category, idiot”, I suggest you open your mind. I don’t know what kind of weird, puritanical household you grew up in, but in this house (Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters, Rap Emporium and Online Content Chop Shop) we don’t recognize your outdated food taxonomy. I made some nanaimo bars yesterday as part of my annual coast-to-coast celebration of of foods. We had vegan lobster rolls from Nova Scotia, poutine representing the street trash on Montreal, some timbits from Toronto, canola oil shooters from Saskatchewan and nanaimo bars from Nanaimo. And you better believe I was crushing nanaimos before, during and after the meal. 

I guess what I’m saying is, don’t let society tell you when and where you can eat a delicious treat. But also, don’t show up unprepared to trivia and think you can walk away with first place. 

So once you’ve done your studies, practiced with the blade and gathered a team, get yourself down to Up & Under on Brady Street tonight. The show starts at 7pm. See you there.
