LACES OUT! Wednesday Evening with Pour House Pub Trivia
Pour House pub trivia‘s Wednesday reminded you of the importance of a kicker in football games! Seriously gang, you need one. Don’t be like my fantasy football team. Check out the games!
Applebees – Frederick, MD
Today at Applebee’s, in our last game before a brief hiatus for the holidays, on my favorite question of the night we were reminded that kickers are in fact an important part of a football team as the unsung heroes the team needs but are never really remembered. We also learned that everybody knew way too much about TV theme songs and brands of liquor, which almost had me worried. Winning the game with some clutch play was The Witiots, getting a correct answer on the final question when it mattered the most. Matt Prater would be proud. In second place was a team with a name that is incorrect, We Don’t Love Raymond (EVERYBODY loves him! It’s the name of the show!). In third place was a returning team, Car Ramrod, who was able to tell me way more than was necessary about the region of Bavaria. Unfortunately I will not be able to see you all for the next two weeks, as Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve will interfere and trivia is cancelled. However, I hope to see everybody on January 7th after the Holidays are over, when we will be starting with U.S. Presidents, as chosen by The Witiots. Happy Holidays everybody! Until next time, Chad B
Atlantic Grille – Urbana, MD
Barefoot Bernie’s – Hagerstown, MD
How many “Haboob” jokes can one trivia host make in one night? Oh…this guy can go on forever my friends! Hehe…tonight’s final 2014 trivia game at Barefoot Bernies this evening turned out to be a year end bash! Some tough questions were splashed in there and bit a few teams in the mid rounds! And some fun questions were littered in there as well. My fav’s were
The Cellar Door – Frederick, MD
Happy Christmas, Merry Hanukkah! And all the rest of those crazy holidays 😉 The feeling was joyful and just a bit out of control: I blame the cookies which were scarfed by the end of the first round. hehe. You all are voracious! What a good live trivia game to end 2014 on; we even had a come back tie for first place tonight! It all came down to Admissiary Positions and Grab a Straw: they faced off on the dark side of the moon and it was Grab a Straw who took the last first place of the year! Admissary Position played a helluva game though, leading all damn night, no shame in their game for 2nd. 3rd went to Ultimate Scientists who were quite excited when I played she blinded me with Science. hehe. When we get together again next, in 2015!, we will start with a question on the original Legend of Zelda. Good times. 🙂 I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season and I will see you in 3 weeks. ~Samantha
The Olney Tavern – Olney, MD
It was a blast substituting at The Tavern, where the teams are hungry for trivia! This was a very close game, with many position changes throughout the night, and at least one team has a new personal best final score. Congrats!
Revolution Bar – Fairfax, Virginia
The Revolution Bar is always a close fight and tonight was no exception! Highlights of the night: In “Best-Wrong-Answer-Of-The-Night”: I’m not sure anyone with the name Club-Foot Louie could ever be an NFL kicker, but Dempsey definitely made it work. The Puzzle Page turned out to be a non-factor tonight; nothing lower than an 18 across a tight field! The Final proved to be just as maddeningly unhelpful; correct answers across the board! But, it brought us our first tiebreaker in a long time! How would that effect things? In third place, Mess and Jegg! Well done guys, way to hang tough. In second place, losing the tiebreaker came Movin on Up! Tough break guys, but a great game none-the-less! Taking the tiebreaker and the game, came the Del Rey Dummies! Congrats on a well earned win! For their first round category next week, they have chosen the classic Bill Murray comedy “Groundhog Day.” Get watching, and we’ll see you in a few weeks! Happy Holidays everyone! Until then, Ian [th_youtube id=’tSVeDx9fk60′ name=’GroundHog Day Trivia’]
T. J. Stone’s – Alexandria, VA
Our last night of 2014 at T. J. Stone’s, and it was a fantastic performance by My Favorite Team, who never relinquished the lead, got the final, and took home their second win in three weeks. All the Marbles (playifn as ‘Better Without Kyle’) also played well to take second, with Trivia Newton John rounding out our top three. Since we’ll be off for a weeks, that means that there are only TWO SCORING WEEKS left in Season X, so make sure you’re there on Jan. 7th and 14th to squeeze into the post-season. When we get back, our first question will be on Dreidels! Apparently, they are made out of clay. ~ Matt
The fine pub trivia players here at Valley Grill NEVER fail to disappoint, and we had another real tight race coming into the final question of the night! Give it up for Fat Kids are Hard to Kidnap for pulling out the final on a full wager! Dufregne Party of 4 made them work for it however, and finished in 2nd. Southpaw Fish strategically wagered zero to secure a 3rd place showing. From the heart I want to wish all of you a happy and safe Christmas and New Year, I will see you back here on January 7, 2015. Our first category will be 90’s Grunge Music. ~ Ronnie
