Philly Quizzo - Eagles Edition with Billy Penn

PHS Pop Up Garden uCity Square

Think you know this city well? Love your Eagles? Test your knowledge at Billy Penn's Philly Quizzo at the PHS uCity Square Pop Up Garden on Thursday, 8/16! All trivia questions will be related to Philadelphia — and the majority will also connect back to the Eagles, some in unexpected ways. Bring friends. Bring your family. Bring your fellow Birds fans. Assemble your team to compete for a pair of SUPER VIP tickets to the inaugural Keystone Comic Con, landing in Philly 9/14-9/16. Second place winner will score a gift card redeemable at any of Pistola’s establishment— (Jose Pistola’s, Sancho Pistola’s, Pistola’s Del Sur). The third place team will go home with an official Keystone Comic Con poster of the Batman family posing with their local pal Billy Penn (to clarify, that’s just one poster — your team can duke it out to determine who gets it), by illustrator Jonboy Meyers. Stick around after Quizzo ends, when the garden will be screening the Eagles preseason game — a Super Bowl LII redux versus the New England Patriots. Rain? Have no fear, the folks over at City Tap House UCity have graciously offered to host if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Make sure you RSVP to receive location updates. This event is free and open to all. Get here on SEPTA. Hop the Market-Frankford Line to 34th Street or Trolley Routes 11, 13, 34, or 36 to 36th Street.
