Chenille, King Arthur and everything else on Tuesday with Pour House Pub Trivia!
Pour House pub trivia‘s Tuesday was packed to the gills with live trivia action!
We got on with some Chenille (SO SOFT!), some Arthurian legend and just about everything else you can imagine! Check it all out below (and try not to touch the screen, the towels aren’t really there!)
After an amazing game last night at Capitol City Brewing Company in Shirlington, we had the extremely rare occurrence of a THREE-WAY tie for first as we finished our fourth round. The final question was rather unique, but all three of our top teams maintained their position when they came up with the correct response on the final, so it came down to expert knowledge of George Custer for the tiebreaker. In the end, it was the Capitol City Goofballs taking down the win, as they were only three years off of the correct answer. Menace to Sobriety took second, with Show Me On the Doll finishing third. Next week, we’ll begin with a question on Shoes! ~ Matt
An exhausting night for my first training at Champion’s Billiards with Sam-17 teams came out on this rainy night (to then get a question about a knight horribly wrong) as well as several different fluffy animals! Champions thank you for my first night here is to many more!
1st Wiser but still dead
2nd 2 live clue 2
3rd Pulpit Fiction
Follow the watch-next week’s question is Hypnotism!
Well the rain managed to hold off for a change here in Poolesville at Cugini’s for a little live trivia action.
You guys get some hella weather blowing through. It was a great game of trivia indoors, with plenty of cheers and very few jeers.
Here are the results:
Lightfoot in 1st
Never Gets to Pick 1st Category in 2nd
You Talkin’ To Me? In 3rd
Our first category for next week is the Eroll Flynn classic film Captain Blood.
We had a pretty fun night at the Celebrity Bar & Grill tonight! We even had a couple of tables give our humble, little game a try tonight, so there were a couple new teams playing!
One of those new teams finished 3rd, Gimmie Shelter! In 2nd was Got Boxers!! Back in the top spot after taking a week off was American Outlaws!!! Time to start their NEW winning streak I guess!
They picked Kolchak the Night Stalker (the original tv series with Darrin McGavin), so study up, and I hope to see you all next Tuesday at Celebrity Bar & Grill!!

There’s an old saying in the pub trivia business – “When it’s Tuesday night…play trivia at Monkey La La!” And that we did my friends! And we also were able to train the lovely Brittany on running the game. She will be spearheading our PHT game down to the fine state of Florida. Thanks for being kind to her while she was getting her feet wet! And congrats Brittany on a job well done! We are rooting for you to get the Florida trivia scene hoppin’ and boppin’ 🙂
Really though?!?!?!? Orange Juice has more calories than Coke! Insanity! I’m not sure I’d categorize that into the “fun fact” category but it certainly is a head scratcher! We had a fun set tonight, with Little Shop of Horrors, Deep Vein Thrombosis and a nice big ole bag of GORP all rearing their trivial heads! And we had some traveling teams pop in and say hello! In the end, our Top 3 board looked like this:
Congrats y’all on a game well played! Have a great week and I will see you next Tuesday night at Monkey La La for some more trivia-licious! Our kickoff category will be “Medical Imaging Lingo.” Yum yum 🙂
See ya soon 🙂 DG
Today at the Orioles Nest it was time for yet another edition of Chad Sings for trivia. This time, the category was the band Poison, a band I know a few songs of, but not all too well. The singing part went fine, but it turns out that asking about an album by Poison was a bit tougher than I expected when I wrote it, so the game started out with a very early near-stumper. After that, the very next question turned out to ALSO be about album titles, which was a funny bit of coincidence, and teams did much better on that one for the most part. The triple 50/50 question about calories was a tougher question too, which led to a somewhat more difficult first round than usual. We then got to the audio question which a surprising number of teams knew, I’d never heard the theme song to Mike and Molly before so I wouldn’t have gotten it most likely. I’ve also never heard of the slang phrase “cooking the books” which mostly everybody knew as well. It’s funny when that happens sometimes, but it definitely does occasionally.
I was also proud of a few teams remembering my rule about last names (only put a first name if it is specifically asked for) with both the Book Club Babes and the Smarty Pants doing it for the questions of who will play Adonis Creed in an upcoming movie (Michael B. Jordan) and for who played Audrey in the Little Shop of Horrors movie version (Ellen Greene). Unfortunately, I DID need first name for the golf question, when the winner of this past weekend’s British Open was one of the Johnsons, this time being Zach Johnson, although Dustin was very very close to winning as well. On the halftime page, continuing with a theme of a few questions being rather difficult, nobody was able to pull the movie They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? for the part where every movie’s title was a question. Either way I thought it was a good halftime, and it was difficult but some teams did very well on it.
Starting the third round was a question about Arthurian legend, and it turns out that quite a few teams don’t know that very well either, with several teams guessing that Lancelot’s son was King Arthur himself. That would have been especially awkward, seeing as how Lancelot steals Arthur’s wife, Guinevere. Lancelot’s son is the legendary knight Sir Galahad, who was one of the main knight’s who pursued the Holy Grail. The question about Go Set a Watchman led to some humorous bonus guesses, with teams putting some funny answers for the town that book and To Kill a Mockingbird are set in. Unfortunately, I don’t think Tinytown exists, and Montgomery AL isn’t exactly what I’d call a “small town”. However, the question of the night HAD to be the one about fabrics. I have no idea how every team somehow made the leap from chenille to chinchilla, or how every team thought that was the correct answer and submitted that. I was the most confused when that answer started coming in, and it was pretty funny because almost every single team put it! Strange.
In the end, the final question about Notable Nicknames was a good one, and led to a bit of a change in the final standings, which is always fun. Turns out General Custer, Crazy Horse, and one of the Three Stooges were all nicknamed Curly (NOT Chad, as One Crow Short of a Murder guessed, who were quite a few crows short today, playing as just a duo tonight) and maybe half of the teams knew it. This led to the Book Club Babes dropping down into third place for the game, still a nice job tonight! Second place was Eddie Money’s Kids, who managed to leapfrog up into second with a correct answer on the final. Winning tonight’s game for the second week in a row, congrats to the Smarty Pants on yet another win! Well done! Next week we start out with a question about The Big Lebowski, so if you haven’t seen it before, now’s your chance to go study up and watch it, and I’ll see you all again next week!
Until next time,
We had a tight game tonight, as seven very competitive teams vied for our top prize. Veterans mixed it up with rookie teams in one of our most stacked fields of the night. The scores stayed tight all through the game, as we learned all about the British Open (or, the Tale of Two Johnson’s), when labor strikes (back) and cancels our favorite sporting events, and the sheer ridiculousness of the cast of characters in “Chicken Little.”
I set up in a new corner of the restaurant but the change in location didn’t change the energy of the participating teams tonight! Lots of new teams coming out to play tonight too which was just awesome! We even had a new team squeak into the top 3, hopefully they’ll join us in the future too!
Tonight’s question of the night was the Fabric Word Origins question: Chenille, a French word, refers to a CATERPILLAR! Only 2 or 3 teams picked up points on that, a few teams missing their 5 point bonus in the process. It proved to be a very crucial question! Round 3 actually played pretty hard for the entirety. It seemed like all night the lead was flip flopping between Catching Planes and The Big Fact Hunt.
After 4 rounds of trivia, Catching Planes held the lead by 1 point, the 2 aforementioned teams up about 10 on the field. The final question was a crucial one as well, with about a 50% conversion rate, things shook up a bit! 3rd place tonight, jumping up with a correct response on the final was the Plutophiles, a new team here at Quincy’s who placed in the money as A DUO! 2nd place went to Hobgoblins, who jumped a spot up. Your winners tonight were CATCHING PLANES who secure the victory with a correct response on the final! Way to go! Good game all, we’re back in a week for more summer trivia action! Hot. See ya soon 😉
1st Place: Catching Planes
2nd Place: Hobgoblins
3rd Place: Plutophiles
Next week: Taylor Swift
