All righty gang. Let's have a Sunday afternoon of trivia at the Skylight Diner on 34 Street & 9th Avenue, one block from the 34 Street & 8th Avenue stop on the A, C and E subway lines. Good food and breakfast 24/7. Here are the games we're playing:
TRIVAGORY - two teams go down opposite paths on a game board.
MISSING LINK - what's missing from the list? Like animal, vegetable . . .
BEAT THE EXPERTS - answer as many or more questions than the "expert." Get to the finish before the other team and beat the expert to win.
FINISH LINES - finish the familiar quote or phrase
GUESSTIMATION - where all the answers are numbers
CASH CAB - based on the TV show
My table will have the first three games. Ed's table will have the other three. Those arriving early (before 3 pm) will get a choice of where they wish to sit.
NOTE - if you take the crosstown bus heading west, take the M34, NOT the M34A bus which turns off on 8th Avenue. Also you must get a ticket from the vending machine BEFORE boarding the bus, Use your MetroCard to get the ticket.
Now here are your questions, based on people who have recently passed away:
1 Who was Roger Ebert's first cohost on his movie review show?
2 Who did Roger team up with after that person passed away?
3 What nickname was given to Margaret Thatcher, the former British Prime Minister?
4 Annette Funicello starred in several beach movies with which male teen idol?
5 Jonathan Winters played a baby on which TV sitcom?
6 Name one or two characters that Jonathan created. There's two main ones - one's a man and the other is a woman.
So sign up and try to answer the questions.
