Just a quick note (in case you didn't see it on Facebook or Twitter): The March edition of the Boston Big Quiz Thing has been canceled (insert frowny emoticon here). Alas, alack. Yes, it was supposed to be 3/10, but due to an unfortunate communication mishap between BQT HQ and our excellent Mass. venue, Oberon, it ain't happening. Nobody's fault—we still absolutely love Oberon, they still love us. Compounding the problem, unfortunately, scheduling dictates there will be no April Boston BQT (which we already knew about), so we won't be back till Monday, May 5. But that will begin a steady stream of first-Monday shows in Harvard Square for the foreseeable future, so all is far from lost, trivia-heads.
Yes, we did look into securing an alternate venue for the evening—many thanks for your suggestions/connections—but things weren't panning out as we'd hoped. The fact is, the Big Quiz Thing is fairly picky about venues—we put a lot of effort into our live trivia spectacular, and thus we demand a level of venue quality that you don't find on every street corner, and we like to cultivate strong relationships with these institutions. So while some of the alt possibilities were very promising, to attempt a one-off with barely a week's notice just seemed unfair to us, them, and, ultimately, you. On balance, we decided to let the errant month of March go in peace and save our energy for other endeavors.
Also sad: We therefore won't be able to feature Touch Performance Art's AcousticaElectronica as a prize partner, at least not for the time being. Hopefully they'll have more shows down the line that we can hype further (and give you sweet free tickets to).
But there is conceivable salvation: As always, we're available for private trivia events, from friendly at-home gatherings to massive corporate retreats. Absolutely no one does it better. Learn more about our custom quiz shows here…and keep in mind that your boy and mine in the Boston area, Comedian Wes Hazard, has become a rather adept BQT quizmaster, so the possibilities are many. Keep the faith, quality-trivia-appreciators!
