We are just days away, red-carpet walkers: The second annual Big Oscars Quiz Thing is this Sunday at Le Poisson Rouge in Greenwich Village. An hour of multimedia team-trivia fun all about the awardsiest of awards, the Academy Awards (at 6pm), followed by a deluxe screening of the grand ceremony, with bonus trivia (and prizes) during commercials. Buy your tickets now and avoid eternal regret.
We've given you a trivia question preview, and told you about prizes, but let us tell you again. Especially the prizes: Our marquee prize partner for the evening is On Location Tours, donating a whopping 14 passes (each good for two guests) to their primo bus tours of NYC's showbizziest sites. Then it's theater tickets: the hilarious one-man show Buyer & Cellar, the lighting/dance spectacle iLuminate, and BAM's multimedia production (courtesy Ripe Time) of The World Is Round. Also, treats from our pals at Thumbs Cookies, and more passes from our partners in unique fun-making, Pogo Events and Quiet Events. It just does not end.
But let's talk consumables (other than Thumbs). If you stick around for the whole shebang Sunday, you will of course require some sustenance. Lucky for all of us that Le Poisson Rouge has a fine, extensive menu: Not just a full bar, but also some rather unique yet still accessible food. Enjoy flatbread pizza, sweet-potato tots, grilled chicken sliders (sliders—the official burger format of the BQT), roasted beet salad, and much more. So come hungry (and thirsty), and prepare for a deliciously classy evening. Sunday night: Quiz at 6pm, Oscars screening (with bonus trivia) at 7pm. Let the self-congratulation begin!
