Quizzical
Quizzical consists of five rounds, 10 questions each with increasing point values. The host, Joe Jerry, makes spectating a blast. He sings his own personal theme song to begin the night, plays the piano during questions and even researches the questions himself. “We all like competition, but in the end, it’s all about having fun with your friends,” says longtime participant Jim Jerry. Prizes include $5 Q Enoteca Bucks and Momma Bucks for Big Momma’s Coffee.
