The activity is a test of knowledge among fans of Rick and Morty. It is a competition that only genuine followers of the show can win. Teams can register here.

Rick and Morty is an American animated science-fiction sitcom targeted for the adult viewers. It is the brainchild of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Cartoon Network’s late-night programming. The adult sitcom follows the misadventures of mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his gullible grandson, Morty Smith. The duo travels from their ordinary life to the interdimensional world. Fans are extra nostalgic about the series as its final airing took place on 1st October 2017. The series had been airing since December 2013.

Southside Tea Room at 639 Wynnum Road has been an old time favourite among locals for their roaster master coffee from Dragan’s Wynnum roaster, tea from Sydney’s Tea Craft and sumptuous breakfast menus of avocado toast, Cuban bacon and egg sandwiches, cupcakes and neenish tarts.

In the nighttime, the place transforms to a bar where people can play with the pinball machine and card games or simply hang around the retro tables over house-crafted pizza and craft beer. The place also serves cocktails, chips and dips, and varieties of nuts.
