Oprah, Obama and dOughnuts, OH MY! Thursday Trivia Recap!

Pour House pub quiz rocked your world with a little Nena and “99 Luftballons” in one of our more creative audio clues that we’ve ever had!

I was into that one, and not just because I like her HUGE HAIR.

We kept it rolling with some Samantha Fox action, which we’ll use to take you through the games!

Bunkers – Leesburg, Virginia

I feel this is another week where I should open with an apology, as the name change of Fat Guys in Little Coats to Jeffrey Dahmer’s House of Ribs set me off on a tirade of pun action that I just couldn’t stop!
Top Three Bad Puns of the Night!
  1. Try the finger sandwich special!
  2. We just started serving breakfast – scrambled legs!
  3. Now playing weekly – The Fine Young Cannibals!

I hope I didn’t “Drive You Crazy” SEE I CAN’T STOP IT!

Anyway, the game was pretty wild too!

The Thundercats came in third (mostly due to their dislike of my punnery, I think!)

In second was Cranius Maximus!

And your winners, Spam, Eggs, Sausage and Spam!

They’ve chosen beer styles to start things off next week!

Champion Billiards – Frederick, MD

“Porcine Kleptomania,” “Shepherd’s Pie,” and “99 Red Balloons” – my favorite portions of the night at tonight’s live trivia game at Champion Billiards – each for different reasons obviously. Porcine Kleptomania has a fun ring to it. Shepherd’s Pie is a dish I’ve always wanted to try but never have and 99 Red Balloons brings back memories of middle school; mostly good ones 🙂

Props to Horseshoes and Hand Grenades on a wire to wire win tonight against a tough 15 team field.

Guido’s – Frederick, MD

Tonight may have been the fastest game of live trivia I’ve ever hosted at Guido’s Speakeasy, but it didn’t lessen any of the drama with a tie for first place after the final question!!
Tonight in 3rd place was T.N.C.! Fighting for Champion of the Week came down to a tie between Esophagus Now! and None Pizza with Left Beef. After the tiebreaker question the team in 2nd place was Esophagus Now!, and back in the winners circle this week was obviously None Pizza with Left Beef!!
They chose “Grateful Dead Song Lyrics” for next weeks winners choice category, so study up, and I hope to have an EPIC Thursday night trivia game next week!!

Quincy’s – Gaithersburg, Maryland

Yet another packed house tonight at Quincy’s in Gaithersburg, as 17 teams rolled in for a great game of trivia.  We leared that apparently, there is a nursery rhyme character named ‘Tom’, and that as a young teenager in the mid-1980s, I must have been slightly more enamored with a certain British pop singer than the rest of you.  Anyway, it was a close game all night, but I Just Quizzed My Pants proved their mettle by being one of just two teams to get the final, and they took their THIRD WIN IN A ROW!  Great job!  Blue Collar took second with Lowered Expectations in third.  Just a few weeks remain in the Summer Fling season, so we hope to see everyone back next week when the first catgeory will be the Montgomery County Council.  Seriously.  ~ Matt
