How well do you know Philadelphia?

We’ve been hosting Billy Penn Philly Quizzo for nearly a year now, testing your local knowledge with three rounds of trivia.

This month, the Billy Penn staff took over Pistola’s Del Sur on East Passyunk. Among marg pitchers and some of the city’s best nachos, we sought to find out how well our readers know this city. And because it’s Women’s History Month, we centered all the questions around Philly women.

It was a beautiful day — still sunny when Quizzo started — and about 70 people showed up to play, splitting into 11 teams. Things ended in a dramatic tie-breaker round between two neck-in-neck teams: The Space Skirts and Susan B. Answerin’. In the end, The Space Skirts took the title and scored a $50 gift card to any of the restaurant group’s spots (Jose Pistola’s and Sancho Pistola’s are the others).

Now, it’s your turn. We turned questions into an online quiz. Without using Google, can you beat the 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.)
