HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Round 2 is on Serial Killers. Also: costume contest (details below)

Black Twig is doing trivia as normal.  Mattie B’s is doing trivia and a costume contest.

You don’t have to dress up at all to play trivia. I’m guessing that many people won’t. But if you do dress up, there might be something in it for you (in addition to fun).

Prizes in 3 categories:

Best Team Costume ($25 Gift Card):  It could either be a team theme costume, or just a team full of well dressed people. One of your judges has expressed a preference for theme costumes, but any dressed up team is eligible.

Best Individual Costume – Creative/Funny/Topical ($20 Gift Card): You know, the ones that might not have taken a lot of physical effort or time.  If we have a lot of participants, we might give beer to the runner up.

Best Individual Costume – Artistic/Impressive ($20 Gift Card): The ones that DO take a lot of physical effort or time, and are damned impressive.  If we have a lot of participants, we might give beer to the runner up.

*I have no idea how much participation there will be, so it was hard to judge what prizes to give away. If it’s a big hit, we’ll do it again next year with bigger prizes.

Someone asked about the judging.  Your trivia host (John) is one of the judges.  Someone on Mattie B’s staff will be another judge.  Maybe we’ll get a third judge?  Who knows, I’ve never done this shit before.

October 17, 2016: Round 2 is on Venom, Poison, and Poisoners

Announcement: Halloween is on a Monday this year, and we will still be having trivia as usual at both Black Twig and Mattie B’s.  However, at Mattie B’s we will also be having a costume contest.  Your trivia host hasn’t figured out the format of it yet, but it will probably include some prizes for best individual costume, and also for best dressed team.

Costumes are not required, and you can play trivia as usual without one, but if you *are* interested in dressing up it should be fun.
