Oscars trivia: The Big Oscars Quiz Thing returns to NYC Feb 26!


So yeah, 2016 was pretty much no one's idea of a great year, but that won't keep our nostalgia-obsessed culture from looking back on it. Thus, we will soon witness The 89th Academy Awards! February 26, live from La-La Land (in more ways than one): Hollywood honors the best, brightest, whitest, and most effectively praise-fishing of the silver screen. And for the fifth year in a row, The Big Quiz Thing—America's premier live trivia game show—celebrates the day with one of our biggest annual quiztacular events: The Big Oscars Quiz Thing. In New York City

Our schedule is packed with corporate and private trivia events, but we're making time to return to the fantabulous Le Poisson Rouge in Greenwich Village for a public Oscars trivia bonanza, plus a deluxe screening of the entire Academy Awards ceremony. Big trivia fun, big prizes, big Oscars glamour. Read on for more details and ticket links…
