FYI folks: Professor Lone Star is sick and wrote his rounds in a head cold stupor. So just to be safe, you may want to review the winners of the award that has previously been known as "Outstanding Picture" and "Outstanding Production".

There's only about 95 years worth - that should be doable by 8pm tonight, right?

Hint of the Week for March 1, 2023

I hope you've all shoveled yourselves out of yesterday's winter storm and are ready for a night out on the town tonight. As always, the Uptown Pub Quiz is ready for a night out and will be there waiting for you at 181 Cabrini.

Tonight's quiz will be brought to you by "regular" host The Sadieist and guest host Rear Admiral Jen (who chose that name for herself).

Here's a hint o' the week from Jen herself. It's in the form of a movie trailer. Enjoy!

Hint of the Week for February 15, 2023

Happy Valentine's Day! Professor Lone Star here - My gift to you is a hint more than a day before Quiz Starts!

Since it's the season of love, why don't you send some love my mother's way and give her IMDB page some clicks? For those of you who are new to Uptown Pub Quiz, her name is Gail Cronauer, and she's kind of a big deal. Maybe you should familiarize yourself with what she's "known for".

What's that? You have a gift for me too? Oh... It's for the Pink Elephant Gift Exchange... 

No, it's fine - I wasn't really expecting you to get me anything... 

It's fine. I'm fine.

See you Wednesday at 8 with wrapped, unlabeled presents in tow!
