We learned so many things on this Thursday evening of Pour House pub trivia! It was a totally packed night, with dozens of teams out coming after our sweet cache of prizes!

Bunkers – Leesburg, Virginia

It was the first Sam-free night at Bunkers, and you all were so kind to me whilst flying solo the first time! Much appreciated, everybody! :-)

We had a lot of fun, and a very exciting round of trivia.

Guesses about the spice available only on Dune made me giggle at the podium, so here’s three of the best guesses:

  • Ecstasy 
  • Oregano (Ha Ha)
  • It’s Very Nice and Full of Spice
An alternate title for Dianetics? Tom Cruise-onics.
Here’s how it shaped up, with some INSANELY high scores:
Third place went to Cake or Death with 162 points!
Second place was Combustible Lemons with 166 points!
And our winner, with the highest score I’ve ever seen, 170 points, was Spam, Eggs, Bacon and Spam!
There’s some clever folks at Bunkers. I can’t wait to see your answers for our first category next week “What’s in my pocket?”

Champion Billiards – Frederick, MD

Last Thursday’s snow day was made up in force tonight. 18 teams showed up to contest the top prize in Thursday’s installment of Pour House Trivia at Champion Billiards. And minus that poltergeist in my sound system early on, the game was pretty dag on awesome! 
Many early bonus chips were whiffed early on, on questions like Rob Roy and “Let-Len.” But seriously, Champions teams can grind baby! They got down to it in the second half and we had ourselves a straight up race to the finish after our “taxi driver” 6-4-2. The thing we know…you don’t have to be leading the race heading out of Round 4, you just gotta be in sniping distance! And the lovely trio of ladies over at Vitrifiers are no strangers to a final question steal! BOOM! Congrats on that WIN Vitrifiers; a tough one, and well deserved! Well played…
2nd Place was Horseshoes and Hand Greanades who were playing a little shy of a full team but still managed to take the number two spot against a tough field of trivia teams! Good stuff yall
Just Good Enough led much of the game tonight but after a tough final they had to take the number thre spot. 4th and 5th Place shouts to Laqueefa (nice come back!!!) and Brain Freeze, respectively!
Top 3 Things I can Take Away from Tonight
1. I NEVER EVER  will care to drink a Rob Roy (Scotch and Vermouth? really?)
2. Our “Want Ads” have come a looongggg way since 1860!
3. Okay…Im curious now…I want to try a Rob Roy! doh! (Im so fickle)
Have a great weekend everyone…See you at next Thursday’s game. Vitrifiers have asked us to study up on some “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Til then…
Be well..dg :)

Fish Market – Alexandria, Virginia

We had a new team roll into the Fish Market tonight, apparently a veteran team looking to settle on a new venue.
They call themselves “Eleven is a Prime Number” (this is true). They came out firing and did NOT look back, remaining in first place from the get go all the way through the entirety of the game.
They were up a whopping 16 points going into the final question, could not be caught, and claimed the victory! Great showing, glad to have you here, hopefully we see you again next week!
Second place went to our regulars Put It On Seabass’ Tab and 3rd place went to a new team Black Irish! Very happy to have newcomers. You’re always welcome!
1st Place: Eleven is a Prime Number
2nd Place:Put It On Seabass’ Tab
3rd Place: Black Irish

Quincy’s – Gaithersburg, Maryland

We welcomed a few new faces to Quincy’s on Thursday night, and some of those folks made quite an impression on the standings.  Team Depends played a near-flawless game, but still could not shake Uncle Jack and Blue Collar, who were both within striking distance on the final question.  After a few minutes of deliberation, Depends snagged the final answer and hung on for the win.  Uncle Jack got the final as well and took home second, with one of our new teams, the Kibbutzers, sneaking up the standings and taking third.  Great debut performance!  We’ll start next week with a question on The Simpsons!  ~ Matt
