NOVEMBER 6th TRIVIA NIGHT RECAP & PICS
Ten teams competed at Bacchus on Monday, Mo-vember 6th - the theme was LOGOS, TRADEMARKS, SYMBOLS, ETC. Our host Ty expertly wove his way through tricky questions about typographic ligatures and logotypes. In the difficult final round, teams were given a 15 page type specimen booklet and had to guess the company who used the specific typeface shown. Each page was enhanced with color cues - correct answers garnered 3 points.
The result: team Jim Barry edged Tracy’s Tramp Stamps by correctly guessing the tiebreaker question (when the typeface Helvetica was introduced). Our next trivia is Monday, Mo-vember 20th and the theme will be FOOD. It promises to be fun AND tasty!
10 teams competed for the trophy on November 6th!
