It just never ends! I've been filling you in on the veritable cornucopia of awesome prizes we have for the Boston edition of our Tenth Anniversary Quiz Marathon (less than a week away—cheap advance tix here): not just the $500 cash grand prize, but also fun stuff from the Huntington Theatre's Invisible Man, the Urban Art Bar, Brookline Booksmith, the Coolidge Corner Theater, Planet Records, Hungry Mother Southern cuisine, City Chicks classes and parties, the Blue Man Group, Voltage Coffee and Art, Million Year Picnic comics, the SpeakEasy Stage Company, the Hong Kong Chinese restaurant, and Joie de Vivre gifts. And, and, and…plenty of goodies from some of our favorite regular Oberon sponsors. Including…
The finest museum in all of Cambridge has been beyond generous in recent months, donating tons of passes to see the dinosaur bones and all the other fascinating curios within its walls. So naturally they're on board for this shindig, with eight passes for some lucky, lucky players. Learn more at hmnh.harvard.edu.
Just steps from Oberon, at 1132 Mass Ave, is this temple to the literal nectar of the gods (er, sort of). Honeylicious treats and other "bee-inspired offerings" from throughout the world. And they have a massive gift basket for one lucky squad of Marathon-goers this Sunday. Find what you seek at followthehoney.com.
Cambridge's finest art-house movie theater—everything from pointy-headed foreign classics to modern dick-joke comedies (I happen to be a fan of both genres), spit-take distance from Harvard Square, seven nights a week. And awesome craft beer at the concession stand. A whopping eight passes on offer at the Marathon; see the calendar at brattlefilm.org.
And there is still more! For the love of all that is trivially holy, why haven't you bought your tickets yet? Or if you have, why aren't you telling everyone about it on Facebook? Or on Twitter? Seize the day!
