Pour House Trivia does not shrink when it is cold outside! Just sayin…
Troopers you are I say…troopers! It was in fact the day after a full wipe of our (Tuesday) trivia schedule, thanx to a 10 inch drop of the white stuff yesterday. But the hump day crew is a grizzled breed of pub trivia player: a seasoned and committed player, with grit, moxy and unfaltering will! A crew that will not be kept in the cabin. A crew that gets it on on that cold Wednesday! A crew that braves those elements and comes out to spend some time with us hosts on this frigid hump day…And to you we say – thank you, thank you, thank you…
Cellar Door – Frederick, Maryland
Underwear, drugs and sleezy politics! Leapin Lizards did we have a game at Cellar tonight! 14 teams came out of the cold and gave each other a serious run for the money- we even had a tie! Oh how I love those tiebreakers In 3rd, it was TNC who underestimated the money making “Up” and had to settle for the bottom of our podium- you still made it though! 2nd went to the new team of distinguished gentlemen- Effigy! They had a very neat game but got a little wonky on a few answers and gave way for I like Big Butts to move in for the win! Great game guys, as always it was a pleasure hosting for you in the underground. Good luck to all the teams I will see at the world series this saturday, and don’t forget about our charity trivia game on sunday!
Next wednesday it will be the same time, same good times with a first category of Simpson’s Characters. ~Samantha
Valley Grill – Middletowwn, MD
It was a real tight game of pub trivia tonight at The Valley Grill Sports Bar in Middletown, and the final once again decided it all. Give it up for Xavier Onassis for coming out on top after trailing 2nd for most of the game! After a tiebreaker, it was Fat Kids are Hard to Kidnap that took down 2nd, with Southpaw Fish finishing in 3rd! Best of luck at the World Series, I will see you there, and c’mon out on Sunday to support a very good cause! Your category for next week is John Hughes films. ~ Ronnie
Fast Eddie’s – Fairfax, Virginia
Atlantic Grille – Urbana, Maryland
Snow and slush couldn’t stop the fun at Atlantic Grille in Urbana tonight! Lots of laughs as Always a Bridesmaid claimed the top spot with Mom’s Night Out in second and newcomers Team T.P. in third. Join us next week at Atlantic Grille for a special treat – the winners’ choice category to kick off Season 9 is Eric Sings The ’80′s. I always knew my background in musical theatre would pay off one day See ya next week! Eric
Bennigan’s – Clarksburg, Maryland
Barefoot Bernies – Hagerstown, MD
And we wrapped our Wednesday trivia extravaganza in good company at Barefoot Bernies in Hagerstown. I got a chance to peek into Hager Hall as well and they have it all set up already – 80 tables, ready to get it on baby! World Series Season 8…this Saturday…is ON!
And the teams that came out tonight will be ready and eager to sling some answers around this Saturday. Tonight’s game, albeit one we had to thaw for a bit to get down to, was a great one! Slapsgiving was in the lead going into the final question and decided to try the defensive move of wagering zero on the final. It works sometimes, but when you got the likes of Progess is Our Middle Name and Obi Wanna Blow me on your tail, its a nail biter. After the final took its course, our final leader board looked like this:
1st Place: Progress is Our MIddle Name
2nd Place: Slapsgiving
3rd Place: (as a solo I add) Obi Wanna Blow Me
Congrats to our winners. Thanx a ton for coming out and I wish you all the best of luck this Saturday. Next Wednesday at Bernies, we kick off Season 9 with “Watership Down.” Have a great week everyone…see you Saturday! dg
T. J. Stone’s – Alexandria, VA
One last night of trivia for our regulars at T.J. Stone’s in Alexandria before the BIG DAY on Saturday. And what a close game it was! All of our top teams neck-and-neck down the homestretch, but it was Winners in Life (formerly STRL) who were able to hang on for the victory. The B-58s took second with New in Town in third.
Good luck Saturday teams! And don’t forget Season IX begins next week with a question on the film “Top Gun”. ~ Matt
