Where’s the Beef, The Day After, “You Had Me at Hello,” Milli Vanilli, New Coke, Live Aid, “Oh! My Nose!”
… Do you feel that tingle of trivia?
The 3rd Annual Maplewood Middle School Trivia Night is set for the Woodland, Friday, February 3. Tickets are already going fast, so order yours now. As in years past, it is expected to sell out. Food is served, but bring your favorite beverage. Dress casually. Many people come straight from the train.
MMS Trivia Night has a deserved reputation as a super fun night of witty trivia, friendly competition and laid-back fundraising. No dressing up, no silent auctions, no long speeches—just you, your friends, and the far recesses of your memory banks. (Who went on a 3-hour tour? A 3-hour tour?)
Since the last tournament, we’ve said goodbye to some epic stars and last Friday the only president ever to wrestle Vince McMahon in the ring took office. Seems like a good time for some trivia.
So brush up on your obscure knowledge. Go back to your parents’ house and yank the encyclopedias out of basement storage, watch Nick at Nite, listen to some old CDs (remember those?). Sources say there was indeed some whining about the questions being “too hard” in years past. (Apparently not every Maplewood-South Orange resident can rattle off the four countries that border Lake Tanganyika.) If we really want to Make America Great Again, however, we’re going to need to know what comes after the line “Pink Champagne on Ice” (The answer of course is: “And she said, ‘We are all just prisoners here of our own device.’”)
MMS faculty will even get in on the fun. This year, two tables of teachers and staff will be competing against the parents. The new MMS principal, Dara Gronau, will be there too. (In what film did the principal get stuck in the doggy door at the home of a chronically truant-yet-charming student?)
See you at MMS Trivia Night!
