One night only.
Thursday, January 29th at select Geeks Who Drink venues.
RSVP and look for new friends on the Facebook Event Page. You might even find your lobster.
Do you know all the lyrics to Smelly Cat? Can you tell us which of your friends is totally Rachel? Have you actually purchased an album by the Rembrants? If so, our next theme quiz is right up your alley.
You asked for it incessantly, so on Thursday, January 29th, Geeks Who Drink kicks off 2015, with our first-ever all Friends theme quiz in select cities across the country. Check below for venues and times and make sure to arrive early, because we expect all of Ross' ex-wives to show up.
Cheaters will be forced to watch Ugly Naked Guy perform a interpretative dance number, so call in sick from your job, doing whatever it is that you do, and have a marathon. The entire show is on Netflix right now.
Admission is $5 per person, and your pet monkey totally counts as a player. The more quizzers we have, the bigger the prizes! You might want to come prepared with more than one team name, though, because "We Were on a Break" will likely go fast.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play? It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little different. Check with them before you make any plans.
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? You don’t. Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating.
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.
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 and the people they make love to.
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.
How long will the quiz last? Our regular quizzes run about 1.5-2 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 3 hours.
I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes. Great! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see about making that happen.
