Geeks Who Drink – Home Alone Pub Trivia!

Dec 2019

Nothing says Christmas quite like child abandonment and torturing burglars, so we’re hosting our first ever Home Alone pub quiz this December.

The quiz will mostly cover the only two GOOD Home Alone movies. We really don’t need to tell you that means the first two right? That said, anything and everything Home Alone is fair game, so don’t let your guard down and maybe try and suffer through all 5 (?!) Home Alone movies just to be on the safe side.

The quiz is $5 per person and the winners will take home enough cash for a cheese pizza all to themselves. Your team is limited to six total players. Remember to bring Kevin, and leave Fuller at home. He’ll just pee the bed if he drinks too much. Kevin didn’t have the internet or a cell phone to figure out how to defeat the Wet Bandits, so you can’t use them either.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED ( Get your polka band together, rent the U-Haul and register already, ya filthy animal!
