Put on those thinking caps on and head out for the ninth annual Quizzo Bowl hosted by Johnny Goodtimes, a popular quizzo host who can be found regularly shooting off questions at bars all around town.
This year, the Quizzo Bowl takes to the seas as the Spirit of Philadelphia plays host to the annual knowledge fest on Saturday, February 22.
Guests are encouraged to dress in their nautical finest — mermaid, pirate, yacht owner and captain costumes are all suggested.
Bring your smartest friends to make up your team and get ready for a slew of questions ranging from entertainment to science to literature. Teams will each be made up of a maximum eight people and a minimum of five people. Compete with other participating teams for the chance to bring home a number of grand prizes — giveaways to area bars and restaurants and a purse valued at $1,500 for the top three teams.
Head to the waterfront at 2:30 p.m. to begin boarding.
Following the games aboard the ship, guests are invited to attend an after-party at the nearby Lodge at Waterfront Wintefest at Penn’s Landing. Enjoy drinks, snacks, trivia face-offs and more.
Also groove to live music during the quizzo bowl and at the after-party.
Quizzo Bowl tickets are $50 in advance and $60 on the ship. Tickets are available online and include the quizzo bowl, boat ride and after-party. Pay for desired drinks, on the ship and at the after-party, on a pay as you go basis.
When: Saturday, February 22, 2:30 p.m.
Where: Spirit of Philadelphia, 401 S. Christopher Columbus Boulevard
Cost: $50 in advance, $60 at the door
