I’ve always liked hanging out at Relik Tapas Bar in BGC. Where else can you find a mezzanine place that opens up to a parking area??!! The best deal about the place is that you can sing the night away, get good drinks and even greater food. So I was kinda elated that Relik was the venue of the first-ever Closeup Ultimate Quiz Night!
It was a fun, fun event that gathered together radio jocks, magazine editors, bloggers and influencers for the challenge of having the most knowledge about pop culture, showbiz and other trivia bits. The grand prize was nothing to be scoffed at: it was P100,000, so every team had their eye on winning.
Camaraderie was most important. We were all divided into teams named after Closeup buzzwords such as #TeamSummerSolstice, #TeamForeverSummer, #TeamIcyWhite, #TeamFresh, #TeamRedHot, #TeamDeepAction…..
…. and we were #TeamFireFreeze! Had this photo while waiting for the other members to arrive….
It was nice meeting Mr.Jägermeister …. whew….this drink rocked!
Maybe, we were distracted having it on the table because we ended up second runner-up 🙂
But there’s nothing to regret about a game where we enjoyed every minute and played to have fun, not to compete. Props up to my teammates for their knowledge and sportsmanship. It wasn’t so bad because we brought home P10,000!
And a warm salute to the night’s champions: the disc jockeys from Magic 89.9, RX 93.1 and 99.5 Play FM. Otherwise known as #TeamRedHot!
We learned from Closeup that this is just the first of many Ultimate Quiz Nights. Starting 2015, Closeup will be hosting quarterly quiz nights open to the public, to help people get closer for longer. This will culminate in the Ultimate Quiz Night Showdown happening in November 2015, featuring all the winning barkadas from previous quiz nights.
