John Hodgman - Free - TONIGHT!





Hey Triviators,

It's been a while so I thought I'd reach out and say hello.

Hello!

Quick update - it looks as though the lead at the unnamed brewery that rhymes with "Choppin' Log" has fallen through - they are doing enough business that they don't want to pay to bring in more people.  That's fair enough, so no hard feelings.

(If you have a lead of anyplace in Greater Akron/Falls/Fairlawn/etc that might be a good match for Trivia, drop me a line.  I'll make sure the Last Call staff follows up with them.)

In other trivial news, Nerd-Hero John Hodgman will be in town, tonight.
He is speaking, for free, at the Akron Main Library.
The show starts at 7, and doors open at 6:30.

I'd love to turn this into a Triviator meet-up - see Hodgman and maybe grab a drink at Baxters or the Lockview afterward?

I'll be there at about 6-6:15 if anyone wants to go.

If you only know him from the Mac/PC commercials, you owe it to yourself to check him out.

* His complete guide to world knowledge
* His Netflix standup special (tonight is new, different material)
* His hilarious podcast, Judge John Hodgman from maximumfun.org

See you tonight!

Still Alive . . .

Hi All, 

No new gig yet. 

Just posting this to let you know that Last Call is still looking for a new spot. 

News as I have it. 

And because:

Still Alive

So it goes . . .

All good things must come to an end.

Also, Trivia.

John at On Tap has decided to end Trivia night at On Tap at the Harbor, at least for the summer.
I thank him for the opportunity, and I wish him nothing but the best.
I hope he asks Last Call back in the fall.

Our last show was last Tuesday, June 10.


Look for another Akron-area show in the near future.

Until then, EXCELSIOR!













































The End . . .

A Major Award? - Nope. Trivia Tonight - 8pm

So, our host is not thrilled with recent attendance at Tuesday Trivia. 
 
He would like to see the turnout improve.
So would I.
He has decided to eliminate weekly prizes.   
(You know, to boost turnout?)

I will appeal to your sense of fun, friendship, good times, trivia and booze in order to keep you coming back.  Is it enough?
 
That's all I have to offer on the subject.
Here's a timely question for today
What appropriately-named actress was nominated an Oscar for her role in Looking for Mr. Goodbar, a Golden Globe for her role on TV's The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, and was once married to Dudley Moore?

I'll take answers at 7:45 and draw sometime right before we start.
