Calendar: The BQT's near future at a glance

I should've done this a long time ago. Here's a handy-dandy guide to Big Quiz Thing events in the next month and a half or so…

MONDAY, DECEMBER 7: The flagship show at Crash Mansion. $250 in cash prizes, of course. With "Movies of 2009, A Closer Look" and "Music Is Murder." Prizes from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and tix to the Menorah Horah (see below). And check here the day of for the second ever Not-So-Secret Secret Clue (7:30pm, $7).

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11 and SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12: Quizmaster Noah will be making a special appearance in the third annual Menorah Horah variety show, starring the Schlep Sisters. Expect Hanukkah-themed trivia, along with material related to some other holiday that happens this month, I can't recall the name. We're at Two Boots in Bridgeport, Connecticut, on Friday (10pm, $16) and Southpaw in Brooklyn Saturday night (8pm, $12).

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18: A double shot at 92YTribeca, as Quizmaster Noah takes part in Kevin Maher's Kevin Geeks Out holiday grab bag (8pm, $10), and then, before the 10pm screening of The NeverEnding Story, he does a quick quiz about '80s fantasy movies (10:30pm, $10).

MONDAY, DECEMBER 21: Last BQT of the year! At Crash Mansion, video and audio round TBD (7:30pm, $7).

MONDAY, JANUARY 4: The Big Quiz Thing begins '10 with a return to the glorious (Le) Poisson Rouge, site of the ridiculously awesome 200th Episode last August. We'll be bringing back "Rebus in Peace," along with the audio round "The Big Ending." Since this isn't a big milestone show, it's the usual $7 cover, but we do want to pack the room again; the more people, the more they'll be eager to have us back, and I have a massive venue-crush on this place (7:30pm, $7).

MONDAY, JANUARY 18: Back at Crash Mansion. Details seriously TBD, although DJ GB and I are discussing an Elvis Presley theme in honor of his 75th birthday, if you can believe it (7:30pm, $7).

THURSDAY, JANUARY 28: Just confirmed: The Big Quiz Thing is headed to Boston (actually, Cambridge). We're bringing NYC's Live Trivia Spectacular to Club Oberon in Harvard Square. Details forthcoming.

SOME OTHER TIME: We'll do your private party, any way you like it, you secret freak. E-mail

ALL THE TIME: Trivia on the BQT's Twitter feed.
