Quiz Master Escapes Brooklyn, Lands in Queens. One Night Only

This Tuesday: yours truly and a handful of others invite you to attend a FUNdraiser for NYC District 22 LIC /Astoria City Council Candidate Lynne Serpe.

Below from our Quiz Master Scott Turner - in his own words why you need to be here.

Miss Wit's favorite top reason "You know that try as he might, Mike Bloomberg can never, ever buy a Rocky Sullivan's Pub Quiz championship"

Greetings, Pub Quiz Habit Breakers...

For one night, and one night only, I'll be hosting a quiz  in Long Island City -- this Tuesday, August 25th, 7pm, at The Creek.

There's gotta be a good reason to get me and my trunk of Quizzy Goodness out of Rocky's, out of Brooklyn, and out of a Thursday night.  And there is!  It's a benefit for Lynne Serpe, who's running for New York City Council, District 22, Long Island City/Astoria.

Serpe For Council

Lynne's a great candidate, a Green Party stalwart, and has an excellent shot at unseating the district's long-time incumbent.

For any of the following reasons, it's a great idea to come out to Lynne's Quiz this Tuesday:
  • You like a candidate that energy-efficient, affordable housing; good, green jobs and thriving small businesses;  a safe, affordable and accessible transportation network; more parks and green spaces, including community gardens which provide access to healthy food; is the only candidate in the race openly supporting gay marriage, and thinks pub quizzes make for excellent campaign events;
  • You've been meaning to check out Rocky's Quiz and now here's a special night in Long Island City you can make straight from work in Manhattan;
  • You know more about Queens, progressive politics, and the rest of what passes for "General Knowledge" than anyone else -- and you're just dyin' to prove it;
  • You wish Scott M.X. Turner did two quizzes a week;
  • Happy Hour is 9-10pm (event is from 7-10pm), and the drink specials are 1/2 price margaritas (or 2 for 1 depending how you look at it), $2 off drinks, and a special Mojito for the evening;
  • You need something to lift you out of your can't-swim-at-the-beach-because-of-Hurricane-Bill funk;
  • You know that try as he might, Mike Bloomberg can never, ever buy a Rocky Sullivan's Pub Quiz championship;
  • You'll go anywhere in this city for the chance to win a free drink
...then you should come out to The Creek this Tuesday, 7pm.

I'll be back at Rocky's for our regularly-scheduled Rocky Sullivan's Pub Quiz this Thursday.  No mistaking that.


Here's the scoop from the Serpe for Council campaign:
