Trivia en français: first-ever Qui? Quoi? Quand? Où?

If you are a language and culture geek like, uh, some of us, this should be an enjoyable evening. Sorry for the late notice, but I just read about this tonight and thought it was too good to pass up. They list some of the topics as Gastronomie, Géographie, Histoire, Cinéma, Pop Culture,
Sports, Littérature, Sciences, Musique and Art, and they make vague promises of an "awesome prize". A few notes...This starts early, at 6:30, kind of an after-work event in Back Bay. Admission appears to be $10, unless you're a student (bring ID) or a member of the French Cultural Center where this will be held, in which case it will just be $7. They will be serving beer and wine, and since I know my constituents, I figure you might want to check out the purveyors of the biere here: http://www.brasseurs-gayant.com/anglais/

Please don't hold me to this, but it seems like you get a nice glass of something with your admission. They suggest RSVPing, so I can call in our numbers on Wednesday afternoon or so. Try to RSVP if interested and say if you are a definite yes, a probable yes, etc so I can be pretty accurate. We can either meet at the center or in a nearby coffee shop perhaps, as our schedules allow. OK? I used to take French a pretty long time ago, and it would be nice to have some people with recent or native cultural and language experience, but those with any or no French language knowledge alike are welcome to attend.

    Darn missed it. How was it, was in General trivia in French or French trivia in English?

      I enjoyed it, but it was all in French and a bit too fast for me. I'd anticipated a more bilingual game, and the questions were really hard even for the French people there. I heard they're going to repeat this event in about a month, so if you're interested watch the French Cultural Center website. If you have pretty competent French or don't mind asking others to translate the questions, I'd encourage you to go, as it's easy to find other individuals or pairs to make up a team with. It's a pretty fun social-cultural experience. The geography-gastronomy picture round was my favorite ;-)

    Glad that we're getting a corps together, and I think we'll probably meet some other individuals at the Cultural Center we can band together with. Please note the ad asked us to RSVP, and Lenore and I both did for ourselves. It would be a good idea to call if you haven't done so. From the ad: RSVP Recommended (call[masked])

    I will get to the Cultural Center at least 10 or 15 minutes ahead, and apparently there's a registration desk where we can meet. If you want to be able to text me, send me a personal message so we can exchange numbers. It may not be necessary.

    I didn't mean for it to sound like the questions will be in French. I really don't think they will be, that's just the subject matter ;-)
