How well do you know Philadelphia? Since May, we’ve been hosting a monthly Philly Quizzo night, where you can test your local knowledge with three rounds of questions: Philly Past, Philly Present and Philly Future.

On Thursday, we took over the uCity PHS Pop Up Garden for the last time before it officially closes for the season. It was chilly out, but the trees were full of real apples (we picked some), and the air was crisp and beautiful. About a dozen people showed up to play, and split into five teams (only one was named after Gritty this time).

The intimate game was nice, since we all bonded over our enjoyment of nerding out about Philly.

Big congrats to the Buhs-Ins (pictured below), who earned the top score and won VIP tickets to the sold-out Wizard School, hosted by the Franklin Institute on Oct. 23.

Now, it’s your turn. We turned questions into an online quiz. Without using Google, can you beat the Buhs’ high score of 21/24?

Pick your the answers in the three sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to “View Score” to see how you did.

(If the form embedded below gives you trouble, you can access the quiz directly here.)
