Passionfruit on Thursday from Pour House Pub Trivia!
Pour House pub trivia’s Thursday brought you live trivia in Florida, Virginia and Maryland!
We chowed down on some passion fruit and did a whole bunch more – check it out.
The Blue Parrott – St. Petersburg Beach, Florida
An exciting finish to last night’s live trivia night. We had a total of 9 teams show up to play, thats 4 more over our average! It again came down to the final question, but it was still the Quizknows who pulled it out by 3 points, Shore Nuff in 2nd with 134, and The Team came in third with 133.
Next week, I (Brittany) will be taking my vacation, however, I have my lovely sub Marie ready to take control next week!
Please note, there will NOT be trivia on Christmas Eve, nor on New Year’s Eve.
The Winner’s Choice category next week is Asian Geography.
Bunkers – Leesburg, Virginia
Hey folks! I was given the pleasure of hosting my old trivia stomping grounds Bunkers this week and it was as fun as I expected! The competition was fierce, and while Belmont Twerk team got the most points, they played over the limit and Cranius Maximus took the gold!
1st Cranius Maximus
2nd Your Mom
First category next week is Vice Presidents….
So all I have to say to Bunkers is Bye-Den!
Thanks for a great night!
Champion Billiards – Frederick, MD
Man, you guys were loud for that first half tonight! Champions was exuberant! We also had some rather boisterous new players tonight who made me glad I wore my take no crap boots 😉
You all really did a helluva job tonight, a little wobble on the helix and the passionfruit question left a good bit of you lackluster but other all it was a solid game! I can’t wait to see what you all do at the World Series next month! Good lord, we got some competition in here, a force to be reckoned with! So.. speaking of the force (See what I did there??) we have our Star Wars game tomorrow night so be sure to check out the website for all the details.
You all slaughtered the final tonight, New Orleans all the way! That of course meant we ended up with a tie, FNQ and Equestions were battling it out for the bottom two spots on our podium. Considering they both went with an AD date for the death of a certain code writer and he died many, many years BC… yeah. lol.. It was Equestions in 3rd, FNQ in 2nd with the least terrible bad answer 😉 1st went to the VA sponsored team of The Stuffing! Next week we will have christmas cookies and a first category of Red Hot Chili Peppers! One of my favorites.
Fish Market – Alexandria, Virginia
Nearing the end of the year AND the end of the season, it seems that our veteran teams are beginning to rise to the top of the competition. We had a double digit number of teams tonight but Welcome to You’re Doom, 2 Birds One Stone, and You’re Killing Me Smalls seemed to hold the strong lead over the field all night.
Tonight’s question of the night was a tough first rounder in the category of Superhero soundtracks. Queen apparently did the music for a movie starring The Flash. I didn’t know it, and not many teams at the bar did either. Seemed tough if you didn’t live through that one so it may have hurt our younger crowd, a group that I’d fall into. Even of the teams that came up with The Flash, no one came up with Sam Jones, which you’d think would’ve played well with the young crowd as Sam Jones makes a significant cameo in the recent comedy hit “Ted”.
Going into the final, our 3 veteran teams led the field by double digit numbers but only led each other by a small margin. Welcome to You’re Doom had 148, 2 Birds with 149, and Smalls with 150 in first. A super close game indeed. The final category tonight was “Sports” which scared off 2 Birds from betting big, locking in a zero wager. Though the category was not their strong suit, they DID come up with a correct response, as did our other teams… 3rd place would go to 2 Birds, Doom would take 2nd, and Smalls would hold on for the win!
We’ve got 1 more week until a long break through the end of the year. We are OFF on the 24th for Christmas Eve and the 31st for New Year’s Eve. Therefore one more chance to get your 2015 trivia kick in! Come join us! Gonna be ragin’ guys! Had a great turnout tonight, excited to see you all back next time! Until then 😉
1st Place: You’re Killing Me Smalls
2nd Place: Welcome to You’re Doom
3rd Place: 2 Birds One Stone
Next week: Gilmore Girls
Guido’s – Frederick, MD
It was a fun game of trivia last night at Guido’s Speakeasy, and even though there wasn’t any crazy upsets or a nail biting finish, we still had a good time!
Bongo Sluts finished in 3rd, Blue House took 2nd, and the 1st place victory was all T.N.C!! They went with a weird winners choice selection of “Where are my pants?”, so come by Guido’s next Thursday night and find out!!

Main Street Oyster House -Bel Air, MD
Kelly’s Heroes came back, but they could not hold onto their title this week, Solo team Clever team name took the top slot, playing a strong game throughout.
Black Dogs managed to wager strategically for the final question, and came in 2nd place with 138. Cup Chicks made it into the winners circle at 135. Next week we start off talking about the National Hockey League.
Quincy’s – Gaithersburg, Maryland
Can it really be a ‘slow night’ when we have 13 teams? I guess so, but nonetheless it was a very good turnout and a great game of trivia that came down to the final question on NFL Headlines. Our winners tonight were Lowered Expectations (playing under ‘amateur status’), followed by Nasty Neutrons in second and Breadsticks in third. Our first category next week will be on philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche! Seriously! ~ Matt
