A terrific Tuesday with Pour House Trivia!

Pour House pub trivia‘s Tuesday brought you five games of live trivia to help you warm up for for the WORLD SERIES on Saturday!

We’ll help you tune up a couple more times this week, but check out the Tuesday recap!

Capitol City Brewing Company – Arlington, VA

One last warm-up round before the BIG DAY on Saturday, and the teams that will be making a difference at the World Series were at the top of their game on Tuesday at Capitol City Brewing company in Shirlington.  The Capital Hillbillies nailed a few very tough two-point bonus questions in the final round to sneak into the lead, but could not come up with the correct answer on the final.  How would that pan out?  We’ll, when only ONE TEAM got the final answer correctly, nobody was able to overtake our leaders, and so the Hillbillies barely held on for the win.  Menace to sobriety jumped two spots with a defensive wager to take second, with Capitol City Goofballs in third.  next week, we’ll start Season XI with a question on the movie “Groundhog Day”!  See you Saturday!  ~ Matt


Champion Billiards – Frederick, MD

We’ve seen it time and time again – the final can make all the difference in the world, and it happened yet again at Champions tonight!

This was a tough game of live trivia all the way around and it left teams with their heads spinning. I have to give props to our top finisher tonight who were in 7th after the puzzle and still came back to win it. BTI is primed and read for the world series, coming off of a first place finish tonight! 2nd went to the steady, consistent Thundercats and 3rd was Wiseacres with a very strategic final wager which kept them in the top.

It was a fun game to watch tonight, and I can’t wait to see what you all do this Saturday up at Hager Hall! I also can’t wait for next weeks first question of the movie Stripes. Aunt Jemimah treatment!

Cugini’s Restaurant – Poolesville, MD

The folks up here in Poolesville made sure they got some practice in for the upcoming World Series this Saturday, and we had ourselves a real close live trivia game!

MoMo came out on top for 1st, while Serenity Now decided to bear down and move from last to 2nd before all was said and done! The Irregulars were right at the top through most of the game, and finished in 3rd.

Good luck at the World Series and I will see you there. Our first category for next week is the 1995 Disney Film, “Heavyweights

Hollywood Casino – Perryville, MD

A big thanks to all the teams, new and veteran, who came out tonight for our preseason trivia! You proved that a little snow and a few accidents weren’t going to keep you away from the drama that our four rounds (plus some bonuses) bring!

We saw veteran teams square up against newcomers on a variety of topics, such as a geography question that left teams asking; “Sure, there are a lot of states that border Kentucky to the north, but do we care about any of them?” We also got a quick shout out to the sleepy town of Burkittsville, MD, in which I have spent many an evening without even ONE murder or abduction… or spooky occurrence of some kind…. what’s the plot of that movie again? Monster attack?!?
As the game reached it’s conclusion, the veteran teams were outnumbered for the top spots. After a thrilling game of, “Name That Canadian Pop Star”, we had our final three! taking home third was Jersey Shore (though not a single blowout in sight). Second was secured by our House Champions, and future World Series of Trivia competitors, If We Only Had a Brain. And taking first, from playoff spoilsport to regular season force of nature, Cresswell’s Fairies!!
Our winners have chosen Abbott and Costello as next week’s first category, so do your homework! Hope to see everyone back next week!

Monkey La La – Frederick, MD

Tonight was $$$ donation night on my end apparently! I put a couple of bounties on my head and they were both sniped by the pub trivia forces that dwell in the Monkey La La-ness.

First off though, I’d like to thank Cathy and John Schulien and Paul “I Never Depreciate” Fekete for crafting up a clever, challenging and fun set of trivia for us; and for doing a great job of hosting that thang (as well as putting up with me over your shoulders nagging ;). It was certainly a great time and an awesome warm up for some Season 11 craziness, which kicks off NEXT WEEK! Thanks a ton y’all! Steamy Hot Browns for everyone baby!

Congrats to Stink Floyd for capitalizing on the $20 Bounty I put on my head tonight! I had some great teammates in BP and Chadimus Prime! Thanks for coming out and playing gentlemen. I was certainly the weak link in that 3-some! All said and done, here is how the ol’ Top 3 looked:
