Doctor Who Trivia Night In NYC
Question one: Doctor Who?
Good morning, dear readers. I have some fun news for you all, specifically the Doctor Who fans (of which I now number myself. Love this show!) I’ve recently been informed that this upcoming Tuesday (June 18, 2013), Broadway Books and Trivia A.D. will be hosting a Doctor Who trivia night in the Big Apple. The event will cover Season 1-7 of the new show (i.e. Christopher Eccleston through Matt Smith), so make sure you bring your thinking fezzes, and maybe a banana. Those never hurt.
The event begins at 8PM, but the event organizers recommend that people arrive no later than 7:45 so that everyone can get signed up, signed in and be ready to go when the clock strikes eight (or breaks, thus releasing a group of clockwork robots that want to steal people’s organs).
There will be five rounds of questions, and the three best teams will take home prize packs containing a variety of items from Broadway Books and the BBC, including the books from our last Doctor Who giveaway: “A Plague of Cybermen,” “The Dalek Generation” and “The Shroud of Sorrow.” The website for the event also mentions as part of the prize packs, “A variety of Doctor Who DVDs from the Matt Smith series, Christmas in April and Classic Doctor Who. In addition, the top 3 teams will receive gift cards to Highland Park.”
Not only that, but everyone who comes to Doctor Who Trivia night, regardless of who wins, will receive a special QR code that will give them access to previews of Broadway Books’ most recent Doctor Who paperbacks, which is pretty nifty.
I’ll be in New York City next Tuesday. Where do I go for this event?
Good question, bold text. I’ll tell you. Highland Park NYC, 206 East 34th Street, New York, NY 10016
You can check out the site for the Doctor Who Trivia night here, but one of the items in the FAQs that might be of importance to you, dear reader, is that the event is only open to those 21 and older. Sorry, young Whovians. Better luck next time (or would it be space?) However, if you’re bummed you can’t go–or if you just want a chance to win a sonic screwdriver or a hat that looks like the TARDIS–have you entered Geek Smash’s latest Doctor Who contest yet? If you haven’t, allow me to point you in the right direction: here! Entry is easy and the prizes are awesome.
