Chasms, Steve McQueen and much more on Monday with Pour House Pub Trivia!
Pour House pub trivia‘s Monday made it happen with Steve McQueen (no, not THAT one, the director!).
Check out how it all went down, gang.
Del Ray Pizza – Alexandria, VA
Boy that game had me scrambling around as I did not recognize director Steve McQueen and I had an answer key which said Seth McFarlane!
Great night at DRP nonetheless, and a real close game as well!
Here are the results after a tiebreaker:
High School Prom in 1st
HR PuffNStuff in 2nd
Still TBD in 3rd
Our first category for next week is GUITARS.
il Forno – Frederick, MD
The new season started TONIGHT and it was a grand ole time! We had new faces, veteran teams, and the return of Quick Pink and the Vine Gang! A glorious time indeed.
Tonight’s question of the night honors go the the Heavenly Bodies question. The term “Diana Chasma” absolutely threw EVERYONE off, to a point where they were all convinced I was making the name up. I swear guys, that’s what it’s called! Here’s how we define chasma: a deep trough or gorge in the Earth or in the sea; also used on any planetary body; see Chasm. So yes, chasma literally is just chasm with an “A” on the end. It’s the Latin name for which the English word is derived! Makes sense, eh? Like my “pantera” to “panther” example. I knew I wasn’t crazy! Well, at least not THIS time.
Nonetheless, that question wiped out the entire bar, everyone guessing that it was a Mars feature when, in fact, that would be a Venus feature. Truly a YEKIOYD (you-either-know-it-or-you-don’t)… Going into the final question, last week’s winners, MC, were leading by a solid 10 points. Unless they missed the final and a number of other teams got it correct, they would take it down 2 weeks in a row. We did have only ONE team come up with a correct response on the final question tonight. They were in 5th going in and jumped up to 2nd place, congrats to the Piggy Doodles, taking 2nd place with a correct response! But that left the top spot alone to MC, who win 2 in a row now, and the first game of the 12th season! Good game all! 3rd place tonight was QP & the VG’s in their triumphant return! Great game all! Back in a week to continue this season! Until then 😉
1st Place: MC
2nd Place: Piggy Doodles
3rd Place: Quick Pink and the Vine Gang
Next week: Caddyshack
Schroyer’s Tavern, Maryland National Golf Club – Middletown, MD
Roast House Pub – Frederick, MD
Tonight’s first Season 12 game of Pour House Trivia is in the books
for the Roast House!
Highlights of the night:
In “Something-You-All-Need-To-Tell-Me?” Everyone practically ran up
for the catnip question. Almost like they were intimately familiar
with catnip. You guys need to tell me anything? Got anything to
In “Head-Scratching-Puzzle-Pages”: The second Steve McQueen is what
caused most teams to pause before handing in the puzzle page tonight.
I certainly couldn’t tell you who he is!
In “This-Question-is-GOING-in-the-Trash”: The Going question was a
very tough one tonight, with LL Cool J’s Going Back to Cali being
especially hard for teams to pull. Much to their chagrin. And death
The final saw some low wagers that caused a severe shift in the standings.
In third place, after winning the tiebreaker, The Ollie Monsters!
In second place, Interrobang!
In first place, the recently rechristened Three Fingers Worth!
Congrats everyone on a great first game of Season 12! Next week we’re
gonna start a bit patriotic, with our Winner’s Choice Category being
Benjamin Franklin! Study up and we’ll see you next time!
Spider Kelly’s – Arlington, VA
After an exciting Summer Fling championship, we were back in action on Monday night at Spider Kelly’s in Clarendon. First place bounced back and forth between several teams, but in the end it was Eleven is a Prime Number taking the lead in the second half, and cruising the rest of the way for the win! Jimmy’s in Vegas took second with Kitten Mittens in third. Next week, we’ll begin with a question on pregnancy! ~ Matt
