Geeks Who Drink: The Contest: A Seinfeld Quiz About Nothing


You keep an unadorned, aluminum pole in your attic in lieu of a Christmas tree. You expect a burst of unembodied applause every time you enter a room. You still think the Benes dance is the only reliable way to attract a mate. You even spend more time watching Crackle than Netflix. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Sure, it’s been 16 years since the prison gates closed on Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer. Children born since the air date of last episode are almost old enough to vote. But we’re not about to let that stop us from celebrating what TV Guide called “the greatest television program of all time.” The Contest: A Seinfeld Quiz About Nothing is back by popular demand – a real Festivus miracle.

On Thursday, September 18th, we’re heading down to Monk’s for the fourth installment of the quiz that celebrates one of the greatest fandoms in TV history. We recommend leaving your own personal Newman at home, but face painting is welcome. Yeah, that’s right.

Like Joe Mayo, we’ve got party-goers in charge of everything, so we’ll catch you if you’re cheating. And the Internet wasn’t exactly all the rage during the “Seinfeld” era, so keep your phones in your pockets, okay? The quiz will cover all 9 seasons and possibly some ancillary material too, so it might be time to bust out that VHS copy of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

Keep the big bills on the outside, because admission for this event is $5 per person. We’ll allow up to 6 quizzers per team, as usual, and the winning team will take home a fat cash prize. You can buy yourself a new man fur.
