Fine, Mother Nature, do your worst. You can’t stop us from a night of Pour House pub trivia! Read on for more!

There might have been snow. There might have been ice. But none of it could stop Monday Night Pour House pub trivia!

We learned some important information:

  • Spelling with Roman Numerals! C, D, I, L, M, V, and X provide a surprisingly wide range of words.
  • If you’re a famous author, like Lewis Carroll, you can sell pretty much anything with your name on it.
  • J.K. Rowling’s secret identity is Robert Gailbraith…who sounds a little like a Harry Potter character to me. What do you think?

Read on for a full recap!

Del Ray Pizza – Alexandria, VA

Nobody gonna break’a my stride, no snow is going to hold me down… We had 16 teams diverge on DRP in Alexandria for one wild game of PHT!

Octopocalypse nailed the final, and maneuvered themselves into first for the second week in a row, great job!

The NoLo Contenders wagered smartly as always, and shored up second, while Del Ray Dummies acquired thirrd with their team at full strength.

Join me next week for our first category, MLB Hall of Famers.

Greene Turtle – Hagerstown, MD

As we have for the past few weeks, we’re adding new faces to the roster every week at The Greene Turtle!

So glad to see new faces joining up with us so frequently.

My favorite wrong answers of the night:

  • Engelbert Humperdinck as the TV Icon – It’s not even in the right genre, but how often do you get to say Engelbert Humperdinck? Try it. It’s a delight.
  • The always popular “tip of the tongue” type answer, where you can ONLY remember the actor or actresses big role – instead of Sigourney Weaver, “The Alien Actress.” Correct…but not quite right!

The closest game we’ve had in a long while at Greene Turtle – we needed a DOUBLE TIEBREAKER to come up with a winner!

A quick hat tip to our fourth place team, 1 Lonely Wiseacre, who missed out on the money by a single point as a single player.

Third place went to The Knights.

Second place after the double tiebreaker went to the Inebriati!

And our winners, thanks to a couple of great tiebreaking guesses, Hooligans!

They chose the Chelsea Football Club for next week, so study up!


il Forno – Frederick, MD

“Back in my day we’d trek out in the snow, and ice and freezing cold to play trivia, uphill, barefooted!”  We were certainly making some good history tonight at il Forno for sure! Some of the best “chuck” in all of the state; some of the finest pub trivia teams and definitely some cold beverages helped set the stage for a very good bar trivia contest on this cold March Monday! And that’s no Jabberwocky!
Our new crew of I’m with Geoff came out like gangbusters in the first half but a slip on an an elephant question knocked them down. They did grab a strong fifth Place just behind the dynamic duo of Silent Titty Deadly Bang who earned a fourth spot.
After a tough final question and a few well timed wager changes our Top 3 board looked like this:
1st: Quick Pink and the Vine Gang (who chose Fictional Foods for next week)
2nd: One Crow Short of a Murder (complete with new ink stamps!)
3rd: South Paw Fish – as a trio no less!
Great times tonight everyone…Study up on some “Fictional Foods” everyone, that will be R1Q1 next Monday night! Until then…be well… dg 🙂
