After a hard day's work, do you enjoy coming home to that other silver fox on Jeopardy who goes by the name of Trebek? Or do you prefer to hit the town for a good ol’ fashioned night of bar trivia? If so, we have got an exciting event that all toxicologists would thoroughly enjoy.

You are invited to partake in the 2015 Tox ShowDown on Tuesday, March 24, 7:30 pm–9:00 pm, at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel. Three teams will test their toxicology skills and knowledge of random toxicology factoids to duke it out for the awesome grand prize.

Our emcee Phil Wexler will provide enough laughs to compete with any sneezing puppy or kitten on YouTube. Spaces are still available for contestants, so feel free to contact the Graduate Student Leadership Committee President Alessandro Venosa or the Secretary Meghan Cromie to sign up and possibly earn bragging rights over your colleagues for the 2015 fiscal year.

Even if you don’t want to play as a contestant, you are encouraged to attend and enjoy this truly unique SOT Annual Meeting experience. So get ready to unwind after a long day at the meeting, grab a drink at the cash bar, possibly win a door prize for simply attending, or even win the grand prize as a contestant. Trust us, this could be the most fun you will have in San Diego, so don’t forget to include the Tox ShowDown in your 2015 Annual Meeting itinerary!
