Please join us for an A Way with Words Pub Quiz with Geeks who Drink in the back room of the Thorn St. Brewery on Monday, December 18, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Compete alongside A Way with Words co-hosts Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett in a fun game of trivia with other language-lovers--all while supporting the nonprofit that independently produces your favorite radio show and podcast about language and how we use it.

There are only four VIP tickets on sale: two for Team Martha, and two for Team Grant. The only other way to get a seat on a team with one of the hosts is to attend the A Way with Words Happy Hour on Saturday, December 9 at the Whistle Stop Bar and purchase a raffle ticket and then be a raffle winner for that prize.

You'll have a chance to win prizes including books signed by Grant and Martha, beautiful hand made book paper flowers that make a fabulous holiday gift, and even a visit to Studio West for the recording of A Way with Words. The Thorn St. Brewery will be donating a portion of their proceeds, and any donations made during the event will be doubled as part of a generous Cornerstone Challenge Grant from Jack and Caroline Raymond.

While you must purchase a ticket to participate in the quiz, all are free to stop by and watch the action. The Thorn Street Brewery is kid-friendly before 8 p.m. so feel free to bring the whole family!

6:00 - 6:30: Meet and greet with Martha and Grant

6:30 - 8:00: Quiz with 8 rounds

8:00: Final raffle drawing and announcement of winning team




What's the quiz format like?

The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions each, played by teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the Geeks Who Drink quizmaster and teams write down the answers, turning them in at the end of each round. The questions will cover general trivia as well as language-specific topics. There will be one joker round which will double your points for that round. The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.

How do the teams work?

You may form your own team of up to six players, or you can be matched with fellow word nerds at the event. When you arrive please check in with the A Way with Words volunteer who will be stationed at the entrance.

What are the rules?

1. No more than six members per team.

2. No outside help in any form.

3. No shouting out the answers.

4. No arguing with the quizmaster!
