Serious quiz fun returns to Brooklyn tonight, my fellow New Yorkers. We have a pretty high-larious video puzzle, "The Rock Bands of Dr. Moreau," plus audio action with "The History of Movies Every 5 Years" and plenty more of the greatest quiz fun NYC has to offer. And prizes, prizes, prizes: Goodies from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Museum and as our token Manhattan sponsor, Silence! The Musical.
A couple new wrinkles at tonight's BQT…
—The price has dropped: Only $8 if you buy now at littlefieldnyc.com, only $10 at the door. 'Cause we love ya. Please use the money to buy more booze, I am so not kidding.
—The new policy is in effect: If it's your birthday, or half birthday, you get an extra point. (You have to prove it, of course.) Meaning tonight, the magic b-days are September 11 (um) and March 11. Last time in Boston, two teams cashed in, and it actually shook up the top five at the end, so scour your Facebook friends list now
— It worked so nicely at our Tenth Anniversary Quiz Marathon (happening again in Boston in December!), so we're trying it again tonight: a special prize for the best tweet of the night. During the show, tell the world how much you dig @bigquizthing, and you just might win something that's actually really worth owning, I assure you.
—In the ongoing quest to expand the BQT empire, we're always trying to get newcomers to become repeat-comers, and tonight, we're resorting to outright bribery: Top-scoring new team gets a few passes for free admission to a future show.
Thanks for your patience. Now, the Not-So-Secret Secret Clue. Make good use of it when your quizmaster gives the word…
I know, I know, but seriously, I love cats (I just ordered $35 of Fancy Feast from Wag.com, and hardly any of it I'll eat myself). But that clue will serve you well, since it applies to what I think is a pretty challenging stumper. See you tonight, 7:30pm, at Littlefied.
