A Golden Weekend of Pour House Trivia!

The final weekend in April brought in 32 teams across three PHT venues:


Most of our teams breezed through the opening rounds this weekend, but on each night, a single bonus question kept virtually every team from recording perfect scores.  On Friday, only three of 19 teams remembered Wendy Kaufman, the real-life receptionist who became the center of Snapple’s advertising campaign:


On Saturday, none of our teams knew the ACTUAL name of the company that produces the best selling variety of Sriracha sauce:

Huy Fong Sriracha

The difficult bonus questions continued into the second round, as only two of our Saturday teams could name both national capitals of Bolivia: La Paz and Sucre.  This is How We Go Down (Springfield Manor Winery) recorded the only perfect score of the first half, notching 36 points in the opening stanza.


Both of our weekend halftime pages landed onthe more difficult side, as we saw an overall average score of just 13.1 points, with none of our teams recording a perfect score of 20 points.  These were our top scores of the weekend at the halftime break:


Friday’s third round topics included the invention of Post-It Notes, the work of Michael Crichton, and the novelty song “The Fox” (or “What Does the Fox Say?”).  Saturday’s third round included a look at this classic Atari game:


Uncle Jack (Belles’) and Give Us Your Beer Money (Pretzel & Pizza Creations) swept the third round with perfect scores.  Friday’s 6-4-2 managed to rope in more than a dozen incorrect answers on this first clue:

–> Although its capital is located at the same latitude as Seattle, Washington, which country is home to the world’s coldest national capital city?

None of our Friday teams answered correctly to earn six points, and only one teams earned four points with the correct response of Mongolia.  Saturday’s final round delved into the NHL rulebook and introduced our players to yet ANOTHER Fox show hosted by his fiery chef:

Gordon Ramsay

Five teams managed to run the table in the final round this weekend.  Here are your weekend’s top scores after the fourth round:

FRIDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (16.7% success rate):

–> This event took place on March 30, 1981.  The man responsible for the event once described it as “the greatest love offering in the history world”.  For your wager, name this event.

SATURDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (50.0% success rate):

–> Published in 2015, “The Man with the Golden Typewriter” is a compilation of letters written by which author?

This weekend’s correct answers included the assassination attempt of Ronald Reagan (as committed by John Hinckley) and Ian Fleming.  Congratulations to Smarty Pants (Belles’), Uncle Jack (Belles’), and Give Us Your Beer Money (Pretzel & Pizza Creations), who each recorded the Perfect 21 this weekend.  Here are your top overall scores from last weekend:
