Still Time to Qualify for May 10 Big Screen Movie Trivia Contest at House of Blues

May 10. Thank God for the rain which has helped wash away the cinephiles and movie mavens off the sidewalks and into the House of Blues for The Big Screen's big anniversary blowout/trivia contest!

Reader Andy and I were there last week to give the place a logistical once over. They're not cramming us into some phone booth on the second floor. We'll be in the sumptuous Crossroads Restaurant with a street view and our own bar! Security guards will be on hand to pat down the participants — Lickona and I have many enemies — just like at a press screening!

There will be $2 to $4 food and drink specials, and HOB is nice enough to extend the ample Happy Hour menu until end of show just for us! In addition, everyone present will get a ticket to Local Brews Local Grooves All Access show put on by http://www.listenlocalsd.com/">Listen Local SD.

It's not too late to qualify for The Big Screen trivia contest and its grand prize of a 2013 pass for two good at any http://readingcinemasus.com/">Reading Cinema!

Swanky venue! Hope you pack the place - we're talking at least three squad cars to clear the room at the end of the night.

Too bad we can't have any contestants on Skype. Then again, I don't think that there are any Reading Cinemas in Ft. Wayne, so you could only play for bragging rights. Your loss!
