Drop Tuesday Trivia Like It’s Hot!

Tuesday night marked the inaugural game of Pour House Trivia at Buffalo Wild Wings in Urbana!  Overall, we welcomed 111 teams across 16 venues on Tuesday night.


Tuesday’s opening round was a breeze for the field, as we discussed topics such as baseball history, “The Carlton Dance”, and this sci-fi film:

Lucy Film

Eighteen teams rolled through the first round with a perfect score.


Tuesday’s audio clue featured songs which hit #1 on this date throughout history: “Honky Tonk Women” by The Rolling Stones, “Rude” by Magic!, and “Mo Money Mo Problems”:

We continued by enjoying a bite of pesto sauce, playing charades, and discussing the bordering cities of Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington.  Six teams posted a perfect score in the second round.


It was Back to School night at Pour House Trivia, as Tuesday’s halftime page featured films with teachers.  With a few difficult answers such as “Freedom Writers” and “Bad Teacher”, only one team posted a perfect score: Drink Apple Juice, the O.J. Will Kill You (Quincy’s South).  The overall average came in at a relatively low 14.6 points.  These were your highest scoring Tuesday teams at the halftime break:


Tuesday’s second half began with a one-two punch that put most of our teams down on the canvas.  First up, a question about country singers:

–> With #1 country hits including “She’s Everything”, “I’m Still a Guy”, and “Then”, who took home the Academy of Country Music’s Male Vocalist of the Year Award every year between 2006 and 2010?

2-POINT BONUS: This musician is currently married to which actress?

It was actually the inclusion of the bonus question that threw some teams for a loop…  Without even considering the titles of the songs, many teams processed “country singer married to an actress” and figured there could only be one possible answer: Keith Urban (husband of Nicole Kidman).  As a result, we saw nearly two dozen teams lose their nine point wager on this question.  Sorry folks, here’s the happy couple we were talking about:

Brad Paisley Kimberly Williams

That’s Brad Paisely with his wife, “Father of the Bride” actress Kimberly Williams.  The second half of this gauntlet came in the category of Add a Letter, which once again was a very popular choice for the potential five-point bonus.  This proved to be the most difficult wagering question of the night:

–> If you add one letter among these two words, you’ll go from one of the Seven Hills of Rome to the surname of a character that is killed during the climax of “The Return of the Jedi”. For your wager, name BOTH of these words.

Only 27% of the field gave us the correct answers of Palatine and Palpatine.  We concluded the third round with questions regarding self help books and pro sports teams.  After three rounds of play, Drink Apple Juice, the O.J. Will Kill You (Quincy’s South) was holding on to a PERFECT SCORE after they were the only team to sweep the third round.


Only two three teams picked up the full six points on the 6-4-2 question by knowing that IHOP purchased Applebee’s in a 2007 merger.  Later, our final round topics dealt with Central American sharks, Steven Sondheim, and this landlocked country:


Two teams ran the table in the final round: Killer Snails (Olney Winery) and Avocados to Crabs (Perry’s Restaurant).  Here is your Tuesday leaderboard heading into the final question:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (64.7% success rate):

–> In reference to his recent cookbook, which celebrity stated: “You know it’s blazin’ up in my kitchen.  I’m takin’ the cookbook game higher with a dipped and whipped collection of my favorite recipes, ya dig”?

Just under two-thirds of the field recognized the unique syntax of Snoop Dogg.  After a masterful performance, Drink Apple Juice, the O.J. Will Kill You (Quincy’s South) earned the Perfect 21 on Tuesday, while becoming the first team of the Summer Fling season to top the overall leaderboard while wagering zero points on the final question:
