Good weather, apparently, begets genius. Earlier today, a commenter left the following on the Think Coffee review: “i propose we get a gaggle of cu students together to go down to think on scrabble nights (thursdays??) and kick some nyu ass.” Kick some NYU ass? Something we do both far too much and yet not enough at all. Within hours, inboxes were filled, IMs were sent: Columbia University would have a Scrabble team, and Bwog would gingerly poke fun. However, a quick phone call to Think laid down the kibosh (15 points)–the Scrabblers had left for Brooklyn, or something. So Bwog’s competitive spirit changed gears: TRIVIA NIGHT.
Here’s the plan. Bwog wants to start a super-quiz team with the sole purpose of putting Tisch students in their place. We hear The Baggot Inn, one block off Washington Square Park, is the pinnacle of both the NYU and the five boroughs trivia set–but since Bwog knows only what’s on the undersides of Snapple caps, we need some stellar quizzers to out-quiz NYU, and we’ll split the comped bar tab when you win.
Try-outs will be informal – if you’re interested, send your name, phone number, and a good time to chat to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll call sometime soon to ask, “Which New York ‘university’ is about to get their shit handed to them in a Morton-Williams bag?” Answer correctly and you’re in. We’ll most likely be training on Wednesday nights at our own La Negrita, then getting some road experience around the city before going for the title on a Tuesday night at Baggot’s. Or hell, maybe we’ll just rush’em next week and bank on first-timers’ luck.
