NYC quiz recap: Tuesday, Sept 3

Greetings! Tuesday was an interesting night for the BQT…the day after Labor Day depressed turnout a bit, but the regulars were in full effect for our debut at the lovely SubCulture. Just a note about the seating situation there: Next time, we'll be moving the fixed rows to the back of the room (and the movable chairs up front), to solve the foot-traffic issues. Also, I figured out what was up with the Smart-Ass stickers. Also, I'm getting a new buzzer. Also, now I will never again confuse Kerry Washington with Kelly Rowland. When it rains, it pours, amiright?

Getting them mixed up really doesn't reflect well on me, does it?

I was gratified to see that you people are way ahead of me when it comes to wasting time on the Internet, and a lot of you did impressively well on "Meme-O-Rama," averaging better than half correct. Remember: LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!

Some of the other options I considered…

Also, as expected, the "There Will Be Math" audio round doubled your chances: the possibility of points whether you're a music dork or a math nerd. Dweebs unite!

Some sweet Smart-Ass Points last night. To wit: the popular dish known as "chicken under a BLANK" is correctly "chicken under a threat of having the photos from a college bender tagged on Facebook." The NHL's Thrashers became the Jets when they moved from Fukushima to Damascus (drastically too soon?). Time's Man of the Year for 1963 was, uh, Lee Harvey Oswald. Alan Alda's famous quote from Crimes and Misdemeanors is "If it bends, it's my cock; if it breaks, it's not my cock." And—the best of the night, winner of some delicious sugary goodness from prize partner Milk & Cookies Bakery—was the title of the Hollywood bomb that reunited Harrison Ford with Gary Oldman: Air Force 2: Get Off My Plane Again!

The finale was only slightly marred by the unforeseen death of the buzzer (unless some electro-genius out there wants to give it a look, but my limited talents are tapped), when we had the rare instance of a 2/3 female makeup (at least at the beginning). Amanda of Incontinental Congress was trying to lead her team to a two-peat, joined by Stu of Cash Cab for Cutie and Ilene of semi-newcomers Where the Tables? Some back-and-forth ensued, but it all ended with a question about this thing:

And thus a new squad joins the BQT winners' circle. See, it is possible!

The standings:
1. Where the Tables?
2. Incontinental Congress: Won a massive basket of treats from Milk & Cookies.
3. Cash Cab for Cutie
4. The Fantastic Fournicators
5. Fat Kids Don't Need Airbags
6. Gerard Depardouche
7. Strippers for Stephen Hawking
8. Virgins Who Can't Drive: Won two free passes for being the night's best (entirely) new team
9. Redacted
10. Cunning Stunts

Big, huge, monster-sized thanks to the fantastically slate of prize sponsors: the aforementioned Milk & Cookies, On Location Tours, The Moth, Pogo Events, Bowlmor LanesSubCulture itself, Unbroken Circle and The Two Character Play. Sweeeet!

NEXT: We're monthly this fall at SubCulture; join us again on Monday, October 7 (then Monday November 11); tickets now on sale, details coming soon. And stay tuned for details about two other big fall events: our first ever Spooktastical Halloween Trivia-tacular, back at Le Poisson Rouge; and for you suburbanites, a special-format movie-themed event in Yonkers at the new Alamo Drafthouse (probably too far afield for most of you, but pay attention anyway, since it's hopefully a preview of something to come to NYC). Oh, it's a scene.
