"You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation, we drink because it's good, because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar, because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do."

Hey Wisconsin! We're please to announce that we're hosting The Mad Men Quiz and Costume Party at THREE venues on April 5th, 2015! Why? Because it's what quizzers do....



Howie's in La Crosse will hold the event, as will BOTH Camp bars in Shorewood and Tosa.
Howies, catering to its mostly college-aged crowd will be free to play and not hold a costume affair (although quizzers are happy to come dressed up if they want to!) Both Camp locations will be $5/player but will also feature the awesome costume party, so come dressed in your slickest suit or prettiest dress (hopefully it's warm enough by then!) Details on prizes for the best dressed individuals at both Camp locations are to be announced soon.

Both venues will feature 1960s cocktails specials: expect some excellent Don Draper-style Old Fashioned and Gimlet concoctions.


Specially-themed quiz FAQs

Do we pre-register, sign up online? 
No. We do these events like it's 1999. Just show up --- we advise you arrive a little early to grab a good seat --- drink, think and have fun. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, no reservations.

Okay, how much is it? 
Five-dollar-holla. Or $5 as you common folk might say. Bring cash, pay the Quizmaster and drink while you think! (Although, this time out the event at Howie's only will be FREE TO PLAY)

What are the prizes?
This will vary with each event but typically most are offering standard moolah for first place, second place and the best themed team name.

Can I wear a special outfit or costume?
Absolutely. Particularly if you want to feature on the blog. Hey, in some cases we even have costume contests and give out extra stash for those dressed up folks!

Can people under 21 play?
That's out of our hands we're afraid, and will vary depending on the venue. We'll be sure to communicate that via our Facebook page for each specific event, but if you're unsure just call the venue in advance to find out.

Is there a team-size limit? 
Surprisingly no! While we typically have an 8-person limit for our regular quiz nights, we keep the specially-themed events open. Why? Well, we figured you'll need all the brain power possible.

Do spectators have to pay? 
Yup. If someone on your team is just there and "doesn't really know anything" they still have to cough up the 500 cents.

I own/manage a venue. Can I host such an event at my bar?
It depends. In almost all cases, we only work with existing Quizmaster clients on our specially themed events, so hire us now and perhaps we can work something out. Such venues must fit certain criteria too.  Location and venue size are key, especially when we've been known to pull in over 100 people for certain events.
