Recap: Trade the n for a b…

Check it out:
The question in the "One Letter Apart" video puzzle that stumped each and every one of you (oh, you were aces with "Cee-Lo/Cello" and "R.E.M./Rom"). Yes, that's Hannibal in that picture. Would it help you if I reminded you that he crossed the alps on elephants during the Second Punic War? I thought so.

Lotsa fun at tonight's spectacular Big Quiz Thing, at a new venue, M1-5. I got a lot of good feedback from many of you about this venue, and we apparently had a lot of good-looking newcomers (this according to your door girl extraordinaire, Sherry), and those are the ingredients for quiz magic. That and, you know, a great show, and much of that was thanks to our new sidekick, the fantastic Bex Schwartz, who will be back with us in May (9 and 23 at Drom). She, EDP ,and I—the Jew–New Jersey triumvirate—definitely saw out Pesach in style. Yes, M1-5's cheeseburger was delicious.

The other key ingredient in quiz magic: awesome fucking trivia questions. But that's a given with the BQT. Speaking of which, be back here tomorrow, when I'll be trying something new: a post of some fun "bonus material," extra links, factoids, and videos relating to tonight's questions. For now, a teaser: This below is the world's largest ball of falafel, made by an Israeli-born NYC chef last year. Twenty-four pounds actually doesn't seem that big for falafel; I mean, sometimes after I go to Maoz, I feel like it's way more than 24 pounds in my stomach.


As for the upshot tonight… We had a finale of old friends: the Fantastic Fournicators, Cash Cab for Cutie, and glorious returning squad the Fat Kids. Stu of Cash Cab, the buzzer beater himself, took a wild guess on the city whose natives are called "Chilangos," and it paid off when he seriously lucked out and I chose to ask a pro-wrestling question. Yes, at the first WrestleMania, Hulk Hogan teamed up with the greatest American of the 20th century, Mr. T. Always wanted to end a BQT on Mr. T.
The standings:
1. Cash Cab for Cutie: I kind of like the blurriness of the photo. Gives it an artistic sheen.
2. The Fantastic Fournicators
3. Fat Kids Take the Cake
4. Gerard Depardouche
5. Incontinental Railroad
6. Sugah Titz
7. Jefferson Davis Starship/Second-Day Peeps (tie) (the latter including at least one member of erstwhile BQT regulars Enola Gay Agenda)
9. Oh Noah You Didn't
10. Strippers for Stephen Hawking/The Budos (tie)

Next: We're back in two weeks, May 9, at Drom, then two weeks later, again at Drom. (Then a week after that in Boston. And hopefully, L.A. soon.) Beyond that? Who knows? We've got some stuff in the works, so stay tuned. In the meantime, lots of fun every day here.

I have to agree, M-15 is a great place for trivia. Cheap drinks (had no idea they had 1/2 price until midnight), and some decent food.

The drawback you mentioned, was seating. It wasn't so bad last night given it there was only 17 teams. But if you have say 25 teams, then that will pose a problem. Maybe a place like this is worth having a max number of team members (i.e. 8)
