Breaking Bad Trivia Night – Wed.Sept 25 @ James St. Gastropub

I mentioned this event last week on Twitter and it seems that Pittsburgh is home to a few Breaking Bad fans.  Here are the details for the Breaking Bad Trivia Night on September 25.

Geeks Who Drink  – Breaking Bad Trivia Night
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
James Street Gastropub
Facebook Event


I was all set to write a long post about this trivia night filled with Breaking Bad references – however this blogger only watches the city of Pittsburgh channel and Pittsburgh Today Live.  Thankfully, every other publication in Pittsburgh has posted about this trivia night – you can read more about the trivia night …

If you are looking for a regular trivia night – Wednesday is a big trivia night in Pittsburgh – Brillobox, Cappy’s and Harvard and Highland host trivia events every Wednesday nights.  I don’t know much more about the Geeks Who Drink folks who are organizing this event – from the Facebook page it looks like they are running the Breaking Bad trivia in several cities on September 25.  I do know that Brillobox, Cappy’s and Harvard and Highland are all locally owned establishments and there is no charge for their trivia nights.

Here are the FAQ for the Geeks Who Drink

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets? You don’t.
Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating.

What should I do with the money if I win?

Is this a free quiz?
No, it’s $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we’ll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials.

What’s the maximum/minimum players per team?
There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. Use our Facebook and Twitter to recruit. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always.

Can we play the quiz twice by traveling to another city?
No. No. And no. First of all, that’d be impressive, because our themed quizzes are now always on one day (with the rarest of exceptions). Secondly, even if you figure out a way to cheat, don’t do it. We will catch you, and we will cram you into a plastic barrel and pour our beers on you.

Can minors play?
That’s entirely up to the venue. Check with them.

Do spectators have to pay?
Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren’t working at the event.

Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play?
No. Six people max seated at a table and all players must pay.

Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city?
No. We host these at venues that meet certain criteria. So, if we’re not in your city, there won’t be a quiz. If we’re in your city, and there’s no quiz, we’re sorry. Feel free to let us know if you think demand is there, and maybe next time we’ll get it started.

Is there a prize for second place?
Nope, this is winner take all. But second place is impressive; you should be proud.

How is the prize amount determined?
In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes.

Will BLANK TOPIC be covered?
Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.

Do I need to RSVP?
Seating is first-come, first-served and there are no reservations. These things quite often sell out, so get there early to guarantee a seat.

We are still working on a list of weekly quiz nights but I know many of you are eager to get out and show off your trivia skills.

PUMP (which stands for Pittsburgh Urban Magnet Project) is a fancy name for a group that is all about providing fun ways for Pittsburgh Young and Young thinking to connect to Pittsburgh.  PUMP runs the PSL, Pittsburgh Sports League and other events from quiz nights to educational forums through out the year.

Get your smarty snow pants on and join PUMP for Quiz Night! Compete against teams of 4 in feats of mental strength (sometimes challenging, usually entertaining) for prizes and bragging rights.

Prizes you ask? Yes, we’ll have those. The prize closet is chock o’ block full of nonsense you’ll want to win. So choose your teams carefully and brush up on your useless knowledge.

Here’s the drill: Show up with team of 4 (or less…or more…) by 6:45 to get a table. We supply the trivia, the fabulous prizes, and the noise. You supply the funk. No charge to play and no need to RSVP–just get there!

PUMP Quiz Night is Back
