Cobra pose has NOTHING to do with G.I. Joe! Wednesday night Pour House Pub Trivia roundup!
What an evening of live trivia it was – despite the rain, we had full houses at EIGHT venues for Pour House pub trivia!
It was nearly biblical out there, but it looks like the rest of this week is going to be great – maybe enough for a little outdoor yoga at your nearest park? My cobra pose needs work, but I’m still trying!
Our hint of the day was legendary book series Goosebumps…I won’t lie, as cheesy as these look now, I couldn’t watch this show as a kid, it geniunely frightened me!
I was kind of a wimp.

I hope there is a Lei in your future today- what? Flowers make any day more awesome!
Have a wonderful May day – let’s check out the games!
Atlantic Grille – Urbana, MD
Bennigan’s – Clarksburg, Maryland
The Cellar Door – Frederick, MD
Well after such an inappropriate night of pub trivia in the Cellar, it’s rather fitting that the winners tonight had a top score of 169. Ha.
Tonight was just dirty minded, we were so far in the gutter we were underground 😉 It was TNC who slid in to 3rd with a FEW tense moments, 2nd went to the ever steady Witiots and in 1st, the hard team to catch tonight… One Crow Short of a Murder! Nice job tonight all.
I will see you next week when we start out with a question on a band hailing from texas apparently- The Gourds!

Fast Eddie’s – Fairfax, Virginia
The Olney Tavern – Olney, MD
New faces and returning faces made for a wonderful evening of pub quiz in Olney on this evening, despite the rain that had me ready to trade my car in for a speedboat!
Hope everyone got home safe – it was a total mess out there!
Despite the conditions, the power stayed on, the questions were answered and we found some winners!
In third place, thanks to a correct final answer was Only the Lonely!
We had to settle a tie for our winner though, as I Just Quizzed in My Pants and newcomers Les Quizerables played GREAT games of bar trivia all night long.
I Just Quizzed in My Pants came out closer to the pin on our Starbucks tiebreaker, and took home the victory!
Les Quizerables had to settle for second, but a great round overall guys!
Before I let you go, I’d like to share some of my favorite (but unfortunately, wrong) answers from this evening!
Both came from our Gnarls Barkley question:
The first wrong answer pegged the band name as Short, Fat and Squeaky!
The second guessed the Emmy-winning 80s show that named their album as “LA Law!” Not right, but anytime you can get a Corbin Bernsen reference in a game of trivia, well, I love it.
See you next week, where we’ll start with Sons of Anarchy!
Believe it or not, it had been tow and a half months since our defending house champions, the B-58s, had won a game, but that all changed tonight at T.J. Stone’s, as they came from behind on the final question to leapfrog two other teams and take home the top prize. They also took over the lead in the overall standings with just three weeks to go in the season. The battle for second place was a wild finish, as we had the first three-way (tie) ever at T.J.’s, but after the tie-breaker, it was Trivia Newton John that came out on top for second place, with suck It Trebek taking third, and Gone Squatchin’ so very close for fourth place. Next week starts with a question on Mother’s Day! ~ Matt
Valley Grill – Middletown, MD
Thanks again to all the teams who came out for a round of pub quiz at the Valley Grill Sports Bar in Middletown for our Wednesday night edition of PHT!
Here is how the game went down! Xavier Onassis crushed it tonight for 1st, Bernie Asshands played a strong game for 2nd, and Brain Freeze held in there strong for 3rd.
Our first category for next week is the film “So I Married an Axe Murderer.”
