The winners of the 2nd NYC Trivia Night, Art Deco Society, (l-r) Jeff Kroessler, Tony Robins, Kathy Hausman, Peter Derrick, John Tauranac. Last night, deep in the heart of Alphabet City, some of the best minds in New York City joined MAS and hosts, Greg Young and Tom Meyers, (hosts of the very popular Bowery Boys podcast) for our second NYC Trivia Night event. The teams were truly put to the test last night; the questions were not for the faint of heart. Like, “The Coney Island ice rink is named after a former Brooklyn politician and former suitmaker, whose original shop was next to Ebbet’s Field. Name him.” or “Name one of the two men who were mayor of New York City during the 1920s.” The team names were as colorful as ever, and included “MTA Bailout”, “Bagel and Lox, Hold the Capers” and “Lords of Midwood.” Ultimately, the “Art Deco Society” (pictured) prevailed and took home the grand prize: the eight DVD set of New York: A Documentary Film by Ric Burns. Congratulations to all who joined us!
