Good News, Everyone: A Futurama Quiz!

Good News, Everyone: A Futurama Quiz!

Do you keep a seven-leaf clover for good luck? Is technically correct, the best kind of correct in your opinion? Do you play for the glory of the Hypnotoad? Well, Good News, Everyone: A Futurama Quiz is coming to a city near you on June 22nd. Gather your crew and look to score big at our first Futurama quiz in nearly 10 years.

The quiz will cover all 7 seasons of the show including the three direct-to-video movies that later became season 5. While we won't ask you a significant number of questions about the comics, video game or other spin-offs, we continue to reserve the right to ask you about anything and everything Futurama related in round eight.

The quiz is $5 per player and the winners will take home a cash prize large enough to host their own Futurama quiz with blackjack and hookers. Invite everyone you know, even Zoidberg. The more players, the larger the cash pot. Otherwise general Geeks Who Drink rules apply. You’re limited to 6 total players on your team and use of eyePhones and other extra-cranial devices is prohibited.

Registration for this quiz is REQUIRED! Head on over to http://bit.ly/GWDFuturamaReg to register your team.

====================================

THEMED QUIZ FAQs

Can people under 21 play?
Yes! We are all-ages brewery.

Should I wear a costume?
YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets?
Head on over to http://bit.ly/GWDFuturamaReg to get your team registered. Please remember registrations are NOT a reservation of seating, but it will help us ensure that we have ample space for all our teams. Our theme quizzes tend to fill up quickly and we will turn away teams that did not pre-register. You will not purchase tickets in advance, simply pay the $5 per player entry fee in cash when you arrive at the quiz. Registrations will close 24 hours before the quiz and walk-up space will be available at some venues on a first come, first serve basis.

Will I get some sort of email confirmation?
You and your alternate captain should receive an automated email after submitting your registration and, as long, as long as that email doesn't indicate that you're on stand-by, you should plan to be at the quiz. The week of the quiz, we'll shoot you another reminder as well.

My city says "Sold Out"! Now what?
You can still register for the event for a stand-by spot if your city is still a drop-down option! If there's sufficient interest, or a team drops out, we'll let you know! We make no promises that you'll be able to get in, but if we can make it happen, you'll be the first to know.

When will "Stand-by" teams know if they have a spot?
That depends on a lot of factors, but we'll let you know as soon as we can. The latest you'll know is 24 hours before the event.

How do you change your team name, number of players on the team or cancel a registration?
After you've registered, you can make changes to it by emailing us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com. You can also change your team name when you arrive at the quiz.

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. If a team member is going to be late, we won't ask you pay in advance, but if they fail to pay on arrival, your team will be disqualified.

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. We're happy to help you find teammates in advance on social media or on the day of. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always. Everyone sitting with you is considered part of your team.

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 and the people they make love to.

Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play?
No. Six people max on a team and all players must pay. If they're sitting with you and not playing, we're going to ask that they move.

Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city?
Probably not, but register under "Other" for us. If we do bring the quiz to you at a later date, we'll let you know via email.

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. If the pot is sufficiently large, we'll split it between first and second or first, second and third place.

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

How long will the quiz last?
Our regular quizzes run about 2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 2 1/2 hours.

I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes.
Great! Contact us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com and we'll see about making that happen.

Fearless Women Monthly Meetup

Fearless Women Monthly Meetup

ISO Fearless Women in our region looking to connect with other Fearless Women.

Women aren’t acknowledged as beer drinkers. “We are acknowledged as beer drinker’s arm candy, and I don’t know about you, but I am no piece of candy—I’m lumpy and show that I drink beer…because it is delicious,” so fantastically stated by a local prominent leader. This meetup is a great place to be brave and stretch our relationships with each other.

This monthly meetup is for women leaders to create spaces for powerful change agents in our region. We hope it will become a comfortable place for women who enjoy beer, wine, and/or cider that want to connect with other empowered, like-minded women in our community. The goal is to organically find a way to meet the needs of women entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, and organizations supporting women in our community through positive, strength-building relationships over a beverage in an informal setting.

Join us for a beverage and connect with other Fearless Women as this group takes shape and finds its niche!

Music on the Patio:  Jack Bryon

Music on the Patio: Jack Bryon

Join us for an evening of timeless Americana music from singer-songwriter Jack Byron, as he takes you on a journey through an eclectic catalog of original tunes with inspiration drawn from timeless musicians such as Van Morrison, Jason Isbell, the Lumineers, Tom Petty, Chris Stapleton, The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Ray Lamantagne and of course Bob Dylan.  Come enjoy quality music on our patio, while sipping great beer!

About Jack Byron:

Jack Byron is a singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. A self-taught musician, Byron's musical heroes range from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Jason Isbell, and John Mayer. He picked up the guitar and piano in high school, wrote his first song at 17, and has been honing his craft ever since. 
       With an affinity for writing about the simple joys and struggles of your everyday man and woman, Byron found himself drawn towards the Folk/Americana genre, with its rich musical heritage and storytelling tendencies. With songs ranging from topics such as relationships, travel, country living, American landscapes, love, strife, and fun times with friends and loved ones, Jack Byron is a contemporary artist with a timeless feel who delivers the essence of true Americana in a truly refreshing, completely new, and unique way.  
        His song, "Just A Fool,"  from the EP, Gemini Moon, won an Akademia award for song of the month in May 2016 and made it to the semi-finals of the Americana Music Association's annual songwriting contest in 2017.
       Byron has appeared on WGN Chicago, AM 1050 WLIP Guaranteed Raw (Kenosha, Wi), and St. Xavier University radio. He has played iconic Chicago venues as well, including Elbo Room, 210 Live!,  Bottom Lounge, Underground Wonder Bar, Uncommon Ground, and House of Blues.  As an artist who has been recorded and mentored by the late Gary Loizzo (Producer/Sound Engineer of STYX and REO Speedwagon, and singer of the 1968 #1 smash hit, "Bend me, Shape Me"),  shared the stage with Denny Laine (Paul McCartney & Wings lead guitarist and co-writer, as well as founding member of the Moody Blues), and opened the world's premier Beatles tribute band, American English, Jack Byron is certainly on his way. He will be playing his first festival (Homegrown Festival) this year and will be releasing his first full length album by the end of 2018.

Music on the Patio: 2 Nashville Singer/Songwriters

Music on the Patio: 2 Nashville Singer/Songwriters

Enjoy the original music of two talented ladies from Nashville, touring together, and bringing heart and soul to our brewery patio!  Both Ashley Taylor and Megan Golden use their musical passion and talent to create unique songs with beautiful lyrics combining country and pop culture.  These two are a welcomed addition to our summer music on the patio!

About Ashley Taylor:

Singer/ Songwriter Ashley Taylor grew up in Bakersfield, California. Thanks to her grandmother's CD collection mixed with the rich musical history of her hometown & the “Bakersfield Sound”, Ashley’s love of Country Music became her life’s passion. She received her first guitar at the age of seventeen & has been making music ever since.

“The first time I heard Ashley sing she pulled me in & had me hanging on every word.” - Cody Murphy (Radio Personality/ Weekdays with Murph )

“Ashley is a woman that can do it all! She can sing, write & play! She is such a talent & we are so proud to have her be a part of the Daisy Rock family” - Tish Ciravolo (Founder & CEO of Daisy Rock Guitars)

“I can see Ashley becoming such a huge star in the music world. Why? Well, she honestly has such an amazing voice, which shines on the songs that I have heard from her, plus I feel that with each song that she releases, you can tell that the song means something to her, which to me is the sign of a truly passionate artist. It won’t be long before she is taking the world by storm!” - Jessica Cambridge ( Fierce & Fabulous Review)

About Megan Golden:

Megan Golden is a Nashville singer/songwriter that is creating quite a buzz. Her insightful songwriting, beautiful voice, and electric performances keep audiences coming back to hear more.

Apart from her music, Megan Golden regularly creates various types of videos on Youtube and Facebook. Her most popular video, "The Evolution of Taylor Swift Car Jams" has received over 3 and a half million views on Facebook alone.
