Kartemquin thanks everyone who attended Rock the Doc last night, our fourth event in this social networking series for our local filmmakers and fans. Zak Piper spun his records till the wee hours of the morning while the masterful mixologists at The Whistler created some of the best cocktails we've tasted in Chicago.
In addition to the joy of spending time with old friends and making some new ones in the process, one of the highlights of the evening was the Trivia hour, where Tim Horsburgh and Lindsey Bahr challenged the crowd with questions on Chicago, Film, Kartemquin, and even Whale Vomit. We admit that the questions might have been too difficult. The highest score was 20 out of 28 (and that team had the film editor of Time Out Chicago, which may have given them an unfair advantage). But we hope that everyone had fun participating anyway. Be sure to check out the Facebook page for more photos too.
To honor those who tried their best, we wanted to share some of the most amusing (albeit incorrect) trivia answers that we saw last night. We admire your...creativity!
