They Quiz Gilmores, Don't They?Knickerbocker
Quips and quibbles and so many quements were had last night at the redux of Oy, With the Questions Already! a Gilmore Girls quiz! The Chicago chapter of The Life and Death Brigade, The Puffs, and Kirk's Fan Club showed up en force at Sedgwick's Bar & Grill to rally for a massive cash prize of nearly $200 and rally they did. Whoa boy, the rallying! Oy with the rallying, already!
I will say that the room was full of exceptionally smart people who caught on quickly to the game, listened attentively to every question, and only asked a few nagging questions throughout. For a night of 22 teams (!) that's very impressive. I only had to repeat 8 questions all night long. That's surely new record material. Of course, I would expect nothing less from a room full of Sherman-Palladino followers. You're quick, Gilmore Girls fans, I'll give you that!
In preparation for this quiz, I crammed 47 episodes of a show I had never seen and came out of it a fan (kind of). I was there for the ups and downs, the rants and the cries, the coffee and the cro-dough-cakes, and I gotta say: it was fun. It all culminated in this quiz where I was able to quizmaster-with-the-masters of Gilmore knowledge. We laughed, we cried, we all hate Christopher and we all feel bad for Paul - good times were had by all.
In the end, Lazy Hazy Crazy Girls of Summer came out with a righteous victory and took home the cash prize! Congratulations to you ladies and your continued level of excellence. Our second place winners were Buttfaced Miscreants and third place went to Not Even a Fake News Site Would Hire Rory Gilmore (so much truth).
Special shout-out to Scorekeeper Andy who let me take over his regular haunt and the amazing staff at Sedgwick's for keeping us swimming in delicious libations and sustenance.
Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate the Gilmores in style. We'll see you at the next quiz or theme quiz in your area!
Stay frost and hail Dio,
P.S. - I'm pregnant.
