Two weeks? Two weeks?!? Yes, less than that till the return—this time in Boston—of our Tenth Anniversary Quiz Show Marathon. A full day of quiz goodness—come and go as you please for one low price—with music, comedy (from Improv Boston), short films, food, and plenty more. Like prizes! $500 for first place, but let's look at some of the names on our growing list of excellent sponsors, shall we?
Yee-ha! Southern-inspired cuisine and fine drink in Kendall Square, courtesy Hungry Mother. This dinner menu is not messing around, my famished and maternal friends: Wagyu beef tri-tip, catfish à la meuniere, shrimp and grits. Eat well, without having to descend below the Mason-Dixon Line; we got $100 worth of gift cards for some winners. 233 Cardinal Medeiros Ave in Kendall; hungrymothercambridge.com.
A big one: You know 'em, you love 'em, they might even haunt your nightmares. The men of the Blue Man Group—a worldwide sensation, with elaborate shows in cities throughout the world—are among history's most successful avant-garde weirdos. Music, comedy, percussion, splattering paint, flowing toilet paper, chewed Cap'n Crunch—and hey, it's great for kids! (That exclamation point was not sarcastic.) The azure fellows make their home at the Charles Playhouse; pick up tickets today, or come to the Marathon and attempt to snag the pair we have on offer. Blueman.com, of course.
And there are many, many more. Check this space for details soon, or buy your tickets to the Marathon now!
