Attention English majors and desultory graduate students: your time has come. Our infrequent literary trivia night returns to McNally Jackson for a night of wine, revelry, and rhetoric.
Nerd Jeopardy is much like the game show. Contestants answer in the form of a question. Daily Doubles appear with laser sound effects. There is a big blue board.
But unlike the game show, our clues are entirely book-centric. If you know your logos from your pathos, and your Brontës from your Bashō, this is the game show for you.
Three teams compete in three-person teams for glory and prizes. If you’d like to compete, corral two friends and drop your team name in the hat at the beginning of the night. The audience can and will cheer, heckle, and hiss at their leisure. Wine is consumed throughout.
The good folks at Small Demons have graciously donated drinks, including Jean-Claude Izzo’s Total Chaos and Stephen King’s Under the Dome. (It will make sense later, trust me.)
Hope to see you there.
