Billy Penn Philly Quizzo — Win Two VIP Tickets to Keystone Comic Con!
Think you know this city well? Test your knowledge at Billy Penn's Philly Quizzo at the PHS uCity Square Pop Up Garden, sponsored by The Philadelphia Contributionship. All trivia questions will be related to Philadelphia, from history (Round 1: Past) to what's going on today (Round 2: Present) to things we have to look forward to (Final Round: Future). Music aficionado? Score extra points during the "Name That Philly Tune" bonus round. Bring friends. Bring your family. Bring your team to compete for a pair of SUPER VIP tickets to the inaugural Keystone Comic Con, landing in Philly September 14-16, 2018. Second place winner will score a basket of local booze from New Liberty Distillery and the third place team will go home with an Official Keystone Comic Con poster of the Batman family with their local friend, Billy Penn (to clarify, that’s just one poster — your team can duke it out to determine who gets it), illustrated by the talented Jonboy Meyers. The Pop Up Garden at uCity Square features an urban orchard filled with trees, strawberry plants, field grass, plus and great food and drink from the folks behind Jose Pistola’s, known across the city for their creative take on Mexican cuisine. In case of inclement weather — we've got a plan! City Tap House University City has graciously offered to host us. Don't forget to register to get updates on any weather-related location changes. This event is FREE. Hope to see you there. RSVP:
