Let's start with an extra-special one: Since the Big Quiz Thing is NYC's most fun and original quiz event, it always feels good when we team up with someone else doing their own thing nightlife-wise. And we got it with the sensation that is Quiet Events.
Like dancing? Like drinking? Like meeting people? No, I mean actually meeting people, i.e., talking to them? Pretty hard when you're out dancing and drinking and the sound system is blasting, isn't it? Rest easy—Quiet Events has you covered.
Get this: Show up at a Quiet Clubbing event (QE's bread and butter), and grab a pair of wireless headphones. Put them on, and choose which channel you want to listen to: three DJs to choose from at every event. And dance (or chill out) away. Want to switch stations? Flick the switch. Want to see which station someone else is on? Check out the colored light on their headphones. Want to talk to that someone else? Take off your headphones and all is audible (while the other, dancing partygoers look like crazy people).
These events have taken off quickly throughout NYC—QE stages multiple parties each month—and they're teaming up with the BQT to join our Big '90s Quiz Thing prize haul. Specifically, we've got six passes to their mega-excllent July 4th fireworks after-party. Join them at the supremely conveniently located Times Scare (in, uh, Times Square): two bars, $5 drink specials, three deejayed channels (one is '80s/'90s, one is house/trance, one is a big ol' grab bag), and lots of patriotic partygoers. It's 10pm at Times Scare (Eighth Avenue just up from 42nd Street); tickets at QuietEvents.com…or win them by displaying supreme 1990s-oriented knowledge next week at Littlefield. How's about a video preview of Quiet Clubbing?
BTW, your humble quizmaster is strongly considering going to this Quiet Clubbing party. I love this company, I love dancing, and I'm too old to have my eardrums blown out again. (Ask me about my twenties sometime.) So there's your bonus: Win the passes and I'll be your Fourth of July wingman. Could this be any more awesome?!?
Stay tuned; more prize details in this space soon. Or just trust us and get your tickets.
