In a week that most of us at TNYC HQ would rather forget, we do have some shafts of light coming through the cracks. (We’re going to talk about what we’re doing to help make the world a little better in a different post. We have a couple of ideas we’re really excited about, and for which we might need some help.)
But for now, the final standings for this season of QCNY are in, and we have our Final Fifteen. (You can click this for a bigger version.)
These fifteen teams have earned the right to participate in the QCNY Grand Final this Sunday, November 20, at Le Poisson Rouge for a shot at thousands in cash, tons of prizes from our widest array of sponsors ever, and free passage to TCONA7 in Las Vegas next August.
But here’s the kicker. These 15 teams aren’t the only people with a chance to win. You can as well. Come on down, watch the competition, cheer on your friends, and play along! We’ve also got tons of prizes for everyone who comes, including tickets, t-shirts, books, high-fives, pins, and tons more. Our hosts will be walking through the audience between rounds, quizzing you at your table, and giving away tons of stuff all night.
The excellent new quiz app Fleetwit will have a special live race for us, with more prizes. Sixpoint Beer has been gracious enough to provide us with some great beer specials. Comedy Sportz, American Geode, Brooklyn Brazilian Ju Jitsu, Sheepshead Design… Really, we’ve been stockpiling prizes for this night, and we may have overdone it. Help us.
This Sunday’s QCNY Grand Final will be a night where ignorance isn’t rewarded. I feel like we all kind of need that right now. If you want to party, there will be a party. If you want to come and just hang out, answer trivia questions, and share some space with some people, that’s fine. Honestly, I’m not 100% back yet myself. I’m really looking forward to this.
Good luck to the finalists, and we’ll see you there.
