We’re in the middle of the most wonderful time of the year, a time where you get a slight glimpse of what people are really like, because of the kind of costume they wear. Sexy Ernie & Bert, sexy Kim Jong Un, sexy hamster, sexy Dan Rather, sexy dining room table, sexy icthyosaurus, or whatever it is when you just wander around downtown drunk and pantsless (so, Tuesday nights).
To that we say, pish. Trivia is supposed to be a respite from the relentless order of our days, and so we offer an alternative theme for the week to give that snowglobe a good shake.
It’s 1990s week, all week!
Nothing but questions about Blossom, Deep Blue, the Unabomber, the Presidents of the United States of America, Michael Jordan, Crystal Pepsi, Lollapallooza, and whatever else Michael Ian Black was going on about all that time. All 90’s, all week.
And we have some extra prizes as well for people who come dressed in 1990s gear! Wear that Oasis tour shirt under your ratty flannel jacket, go home with some huge prizes, courtesy of Astoria Bookshop & GSN, plus a couple of very large prizes to be given away to some very lucky players!
At Social Bar in Midtown, Jamie & Justin will be giving away packages from the Game Show Network. It’s gonna be, let’s see — what were the kids saying 20 years ago — bodacious and triumphant.
And — this is special — tonight, at Albatross in Astoria, Alanna & Jeanette (whose idea this was) will be giving away tickets to see Blue Man Group, in a package that’s worth at least $160. Your butt could be in a nice seat, if you know your 1990s this week!
See you tonight, and all this week!
