Saturday Afternoon Trivia - Moonstruck Diner at 23rd St on May 12

Hey gang. A Saturday afternoon of trivia at a NEW LOCATION. The Moonstruck Diner on 23rd St & 9th Avenue in Manhattan is a popular fave with neighborhood residents. The usual diner fare, we'll be in the back section. The 23rd Street stop on the C and E lines is the closest subway stop, one block away on 8th Avenue. You can take any other Manhattan subway to 23rd Street and take the crosstown M23 bus headed WEST. Moonstruck is across the street from the bus stop. You may want to check for train rerouting that day by logging on to www.mta.info

We've gone through most of my games, so it's repeat season. The games are ones we've played before - but if you didn't play them, they're new to you:

Smart Ass - be the first to call out the right answer based on the clues given. One guess per person per subject. Get to the donkey's tail first and you win. This was the very first game we played at our first meeetup.

Who Said That - guess what person, movie, TV show or product the quotes are from. This will be a team game.

Blast From The Past - covering four decades, from the 1960s - 1990s. Get two rows filled on your bingo card first and you win.

I'll probably have one or two more games. Ed will not be able to make it, so it's just me running things. I may appoint someone to run another game if we get a big turnout. Please buy something there if you plan on coming. Also, thanks to Elaine for uploading some pics from our last meetup.

Now for some trivia questions. Match these quotes with the famous people who said them. A different person said each quote.

1 "Given the choice between two evils, I'll pick the one I haven't tried before."

2 "I never forget a face, but in your case, I'll make an exception"

3 "Ah, the patter of little feet around the house. There's nothing like having a midget for a butler."

Clue - all three of these people haved moved on to the great beyond. Good luck.

    Only a half dozen, but competitive and friendly game play. Daisy won all four games. She won Smart Ass by herself and the other games by being on the winning team. Other games playeed were Who Said That, Blast From The Past and In Pursuit, a version of Trivial Pursuit. Moonstruck is a nice diner and we will return there in the future. Thanks to first-timer Todd and the others for a fun afternoon.

    William Claude Dunkenfield, aka W C Fields is correct for Question 3. Good going Clark.

    #3 W. C. Fields??????? Sounds like him. The other 2 questions are from the early years of movies so I'm guessing this one too.

    Mike don't forget, Blast from the Past is also one of my games from my collection as well. I will again bring it in sometime soon.

    Very good Elaine. That's two out of three in just a few short hours. I figured the third one would be the most difficult.

    My brother was/is a big Groucho Marx fan and I did a monologue to one of his speeches from a movie in high school, it just sounded like him. :-)

    That's correct Clark. I think that's a record for answering a question online the fastest.

    Moonstruck! Good Choice. I am glad they are allowing us to be there.
    Regarding question 2 - My guess, Groucho Marx?
