The Geeky Cauldron- A Harry Potter Quiz

The Geeky Cauldron- A Harry Potter Quiz

Saturday, May 26th at select Geeks Who Drink venues.
Registration for this quiz is REQUIREDhttp://bit.ly/TQRegistration
Please look below for the full list of locations and times!


Dear quizzer, we are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to attend The Geeky Cauldron: A Harry Potter Quiz. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary information and equipment. Quiz begins on May 26th. We await your owl by no later than… actually, please send no owls. Just go to the quiz. Owls are dangerous wild animals.

Cheaters will be subjected to the Cruciatus Curse if they are found using self-correcting ink, spellchecking quills or any dishonorable Muggle devices. The quiz will have equal portions questions about the books and the movies and we’ll also be asking a smattering of questions about The Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts and other stories set in the Potterverse to separate the contenders from the pretenders. You better break out your Timeturners as you’ve got quite a lot of material to cover. Perhaps your local apothecary shop has powdered dragon horn?

Make sure you visit Gringotts before quiz, as admission is 8 sickles, 13 knuts. We will accept Muggle money, of course, so that comes to $5 per person. Winners will be awarded a fat purse (trust us, it will not be leprechaun gold). Your team is limited to 6 wizards and you might want to come prepared with more than one team name. You're not the only ones who picked “You’re a Quizzard Harry”.

Your team is required to register for this quiz! Get that done at http://bit.ly/TQRegistration! Don't see your city's info? Register under "Other" for us and we'll shoot you an email if we bring the quiz to your city!


Can people under 21 play?
It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little diff erent. Check with them directly before you make any plans. 

Should I wear a costume? 
YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets?
You can register your team by filling out this form: http://bit.ly/TQRegistration. This is NOT a reservation of seating, but it will help us ensure that we have ample space for all our teams. We anticipate our theme quizzes will fill up quickly and we will turn away teams that did not pre-register. You will not purchase tickets in advance, simply pay the $5 per player entry fee in cash when you arrive at the quiz. Registrations will close 24 hours before the quiz and walk-up space will be available at some venues on a first come, first serve basis.

Will I get some sort of email confirmation?
You and your alternate captain should receive an automated email after submitting your registration and, as long, as that email doesn't indicate that you're on stand-by, you should plan to be at the quiz. The week of the quiz, we'll shoot you a reminder about the quiz as well.

My city says "Sold Out"! Now what?
You can still register for the event for a stand-by spot if your city is still a drop-down option! If there's sufficient interest, or a team drops out, we'll let you know! We make no promises that you'll be able to get in, but if we can make it happen, you'll be the first to know. 

When will "Stand-by" teams know if they have a spot?
That depends on a lot of factors, but we'll let you know as soon as we can. The latest you'll know is 24 hours before the event.

How do you change your team name, number of players on the team or cancel a registration?
After you've registered, you can make changes to it by emailing us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com. You can also change your team name when you arrive at the quiz.

Is this a free quiz?
No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials. If a team member is going to be late, we won't ask you pay in advance, but if they fail to pay on arrival, your team will be DQ'd.

What's the maximum/minimum players per team? 
There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. We're happy to help you find teammates in advance on social media or on the day of. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always. Everyone sitting with you is considered part of your team.

Do spectators have to pay? 
Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren't working at the event and the people they make love to.

Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play?
No. Six people max on a team and all players must pay. If they're sitting with you and not playing, we're going to ask that they move.

Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city?
Probably not, but register under "Other" for us. If we do bring the quiz to you at a later date, we'll let you know via email.

How is the prize amount determined?
In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes. If the pot is sufficiently large, we'll split it between first and second or first, second and third place.

Will BLANK TOPIC be covered?
Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.

How long will the quiz last?
Our regular quizzes run about 2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 2 1/2 hours.

I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes. 
Great! Contact us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com and we'll see about making that happen.

Dead Phish Orchestra Live at Williwaw Social

Dead Phish Orchestra Live at Williwaw Social

Williwaw presents DeadPhish Orchestra for one night of a seamless web of Phish and Dead to split open and melt your face live at Williwaw Social! 

Only a limited amount of tickets are available for this show so get your tickets early!

$10 in advance and $15 day of show. 
Doors at 8, music starts at 8:30p.

This is a 21 and over show with valid ID. 

The Deadphish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played music together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene.

While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges–funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens.

The guys in DPO have posed themselves a unique challenge in merging the two styles. Set lists end up with segues that look like Divided Sky > Morning Dew > Divided Sky, or Help > Slip > Frankenstein. Or how about Mike’s Song > Stella Blue > Weekapaug Groove. Or even stranger, like My Friend, My Friend of the Devil…or It Must Have Been The Roses Are Free. You can see that between the vast repertoires of the two bands, the possibilities are endless.

It’s just about as much fun as humans are allowed to have.

About | North of Nightfall
Hidden among the glaciers on Axel Heiberg Island, high in the Arctic Circle, are mountain bike lines too incredible to ignore. Harsh temperatures, volatile weather and nine-month
winters mean the area is normally devoid of human life. But each summer, this frozen landscape flourishes under endless daylight, revealing a spectacular ecosystem. Join Darren
Berrecloth, Carson Storch, Cam Zink and Tom Van Steenbergen in North of Nightfall as they embark on an expedition to the top of the world to explore this relatively unknown land.
Here they discover a rapidly changing environment steeped in history along with ground-breaking descents unlike anything anyone’s ridden to date.

Hawthorne Heights Live @ Williwaw

The emo pop punk quartet Hawthorne Heights came to life in the summer of 2001. Originally called A Day in the Life, the Ohio-based band saw numerous lineup changes and shifting musical styles before settling on a permanent formation. Composed of drummer Chris Popadak, bassist Matt Ridenour, vocalist/guitar player J.T. Woodruff, and guitarists Casey Calvert, Hawthorne Heights built their fan base on a demo recording and a series of self-booked national tours that saw them sharing stages with the likes of From Autumn to Ashes and the Descendents. In 2003, they signed with Chicago label Victory Records, resulting in the 2004 release of their powerful full-length debut, The Silence in Black and White. While the bandmates relentlessly toured behind it, the album became Victory's highest-selling debut, and its lead single, "Ohio Is for Lovers," slowly invaded rock radio.

Hawthorne Heights return to form with Hurt in 2015, the long awaited third EP in their Hate/Hope/Hurt trilogy. Hurt not only shines with elements rooted in their classic sound, but also showcases a maturity and level of confidence that can only be honed after twelve years of being a band. Hurt is a collection of eight songs that celebrate looking back while boldly pushing forward.

Hawthorne Heights has spent most of the last year touring the world celebrating the ten year anniversary of their second (and certified Gold) album, If Only You Were Lonely. Feeling newly inspired and invigorated, the band has returned home to Ohio to write for a new full length with a planned 2017 release.
