Baking Up Something Nice at Monday Trivia

Note: Next Monday we will welcome our newest venue Ragtime in Arlington, VA. Join us for trivia at 7 PM.

FIRST ROUND:

Our Monday teams began the night with a question about jaywalking, and learned about the velociraptor in our three clues question. We followed that up with a question about the history of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and we finished the round by discussing the latest MLB MVP’s, Shohei Ohtani and Bryce HarperFourteen teams began Monday’s opening round with a perfect score.

SECOND ROUND:

Monday’ Second Round progressed rather nicely for our stellar teams. The subject of the audio clue unique cover versions of the songs, “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” “Baby Got Back,” and “Poker Face.” From there, the second round featured topics such as the only U.S. capital on the Delaware River, which is Trenton, New Jersey, we then switched topics to the 1990s film Reservoir Dogs, drank some Sauvignon Blanc, and finished the round by naming the three wives of Ross Gellar on Friends. Those answers were Rachel, Emily, and Carol. 

Eight of our teams finished Round Two with a perfect score. 

HALFTIME:

Monday’s halftime page asked our teams to identify items featuring the word “Right” and matching people and their record-breaking feats. Four teams earned a perfect 20 on the halftime page, while the overall average reached 15.9 points.  These were your highest scoring Monday teams at the halftime break:

THIRD ROUND:

Monday’s second half dealt with questions about the shared name of Pontiac, a three-part question on musicians in film cameos that included Alanis Morissette, George Harrison, and Gwen Stefani, a trip back to the 1970s with the fashionable moon bootsand we finished the round by making everyone laugh by discussing the poop deck. Round three saw nine teams earn the perfect 36 points.

FOURTH ROUND:

After discussing dog breeds for the 6-4-2 question, Monday’s final stanza featured questions on the countries that border Paraguay, those countries are Argentina, Brazil, and Bolivia, the chemical element Beryllium, a three-part questions dealing with flowers whose answers included rose, poppy, and mouseWe also discussed the golf term albatross, and finished up the round with the Broadway musical, Jesus Christ Superstar.

After four rounds of play, these were your highest scoring Monday teams:
