A Capitals heartbreaker and 10 games of Pour House Pub Trivia on Wednesday!

Pour House pub trivia‘s Wednesday was a total heartbreaker for the Caps, but we still brought you 10 great games of live trivia!

A little Bratz dolls, some ganache and as always, a lot of panache!

Applebees – Frederick, MD

Tonight started out being a great time to be a Washington sports fan. However, by the end of the night that was not the case. In the end, it was definitely a good day to be a Pour House Trivia fan, however! Today’s final question ended up being quite the difficult one, but a few teams were able to figure out Aunt Jemima had a family (I need an Uncle Mose doll in my life!). I’m also not sure which category name I liked better: It came from outer space! (sounds like a sci-fi horror movie title) or So what if I play with dolls? (That one just for the comedy value). Either way it still ended up being a lot of fun for both questions. The halftime sheet also proved to be quite tough, and I found out not as many people as I expected know the characters from Pulp Fiction. Or Forgetting Sarah Marshall for that matter, but it makes sense because Sarah Marshall herself isn’t on there.

In the end we only had a few teams get the final correct, which greatly impacted the final standings. In third place was one of two teams getting the final, making a huge jump in the standings was Oonce! Our second place team made a bit of a defensive wager despite being in the lead by a few points. Congrats on second to Trashbag Bobby on another strong performance. Our winners tonight were the other team to get the final question correct, congrats on the win to Dalek Dance Party! They have chosen as their winning category for next week the TV show Modern Family so I guess it’s time to study up, and I will see you all again next week!

Until next time,
-Chad

Bar Louie – Rockville, MD

Tensions mounted as teams split their attention between Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Game 5 of the Wizards/Hawks, AND our little game of trivia. As the night progressed, we even had to take a break from the game to let the playoffs have their moment – too bad about those losses.

We learned all about the Whiskey Revolution, how complex the art of Web Design is nowadays, and named all the children of the Tanner, Banks and Taylor households. Only the most determined teams soldiered through difficult questions in the second half, leaving us with a close game headed into the final.
A tough final loomed ominously over the bar. Only one team managed to snag the right answer, and it was the winning team of newcomers! In third was Brady Anderson was Clean, another team of trivia newbies. Second went to Uncle Jack, and in first we the Bengal Tigers! They selected, “Bollywood” as next week’s first category.

On this cold Hagerstown Wednesday night, with Caps fans a hollerin’, I had the opportunity to host a trivia throw down! And the overall House Champion title for Season 11 is a darn close one! Looks like it will come down to the wire this season!

And as we approach our post- season 11 festivities, we put in a game tonight for the books! It began innocent enough, but wooh! arounf that 3rd Round door was some meanies! Our 2nd halves have had some some teeth on them lately! It made for a great game and some great fun!

Thanks everyone for coming out on this oddly frigid May night! My Answer of the Night is a tie tonight between:

Ganache and Bratz Dolls!

With the post season just around the corner, this is the time to step up and crush some trivia! My Favorite Team has done just that, winning about 6 games in a row going into tonight. After missing their bonus chip in the first half, they had much ground to cover but came back and brought it within 1 point. It was crucial close going into our final question tonight, Knock Knock up 1 on My Favorite Team, who was up just 1 on Just the Tip. 2 points separated our top three, so the final question was incredibly crucial to the outcome of the game! Well, I’d hate to be the bearer of bad news but everyone of our top 3 teams missed the final question… Wagers were unchanged as well… We did have 1 team get the final correct though. Here’s how the game ended up: 3rd place, after 6 first place finishes in a row, we had My Favorite Team, 2nd place was Knock Knock and OUTTA NOWHERE the Gold Team takes its down!!! They came up with Aunt Jemima in like 30 seconds too… It was a nice win! Grats guys. We’re back next week hoping to see you all there!

1st Place: Gold Team
2nd Place: Knock Knock
3rd Place: My Favorite Team

You just never know – that final can change everything!

Constantly Changing Team name had it, they were on top of their game all damn night – just on a roll! And then Aunt Jemima happened. Wednesday saw their chance and pounced with an out of thin air answer and grabbed themselves a first place! Nice stalking, because that was a killer pounce on that final. in 3rd place it was 2nd place- almost prophetic on the team name, almost. Thanks for hanging out with me on this Wednesday night, I hope you come hang out with me for the pub crawl!

Check out the website, all the details are up on there. Next week we start with a Meryl Streep movies question. Study up!

Revolution Bar – Fairfax, Virginia

It may have cooled down outside, but inside the Revolution Bar things were hot! Tonight’s game of trivia saw some dramatic lead changes and a wild finish!

Highlights of the night:

In “Puzzle-Page-Blues”: Tonight’s puzzle page saw many frustrated teams. Partly because for once I wasn’t able to supply color copies, and had to have the file open, but mostly because it was a tough page!

In “How-Does-That-Make-Sense?”: Dave Matthews? He’s on the board for Farm-Aid? I don’t understand…Neither did my teams it seems.

In “Come-On-Guys”: Name an element that begins with an O. And you guys have trouble with Oxygen? Come on guys!

The final was a doozy; with no correct answers, the podium was pretty much set.

In third place tonight, Mess and Jegg!

In second place, GT80 Sauce, back in action!

In first place, E=MC Hammer! Congrats guys!

Next week’s round one question one category will be Don’t Touch My Wood! I don’t know what to do with that, but we’ll see where it goes!

Until then,
Ian

Well, I guess trivia was playing second fiddle for some folks distracted by the hockey game (and the basketball game), and even though the finish wasn’t quite as thrilling, there were still some fireworks at the end of tonight’s game.  The B-58s were poised to take down another win, but they were unable to come up with the final answer, and so it was Trivia Newton John scoring their second win in the past month.  We Came For the Beer played a great game and took second, with Happy Scrappy Hero Pups taking third.  Next week, we begin with a question on Kim Jong-Un! ~ Matt
