MARYLAND PLAYOFFS AND PUB CRAWL 2014!
Playoff 1 – Champion Billiards – MARYLAND
The day opened up with a 30 team bar trivia extravaganza at Champion Billiards in Frederick, MD. We had a bunch of Playoff crews and Pub Crawlers eyeballing invites and cash! And what a game we had! The overall TOP 3 came down to a 166 to 166 tie breaker for a $50 Bill and the first win of the day – which is always a big one in the Pub Crawl going into Game 2! And the winners “moonwalked” on off with some cash and smiles…
PLAYOFF 2 – Jekyll and Hydes – Maryland
Our 2nd stop off the day was home of one of the best reuben sandwiches I’ve ever had – Jekyll and Hydes! After some good lunch eats, drinks and questions across town, it was time to rustle up some more feathers and get down to some more business at the J and H!
And business is what happened! This was a high scoring game held in two different rooms! And one of the playoff teams came in calling a win for WS! They certainly walked the walk today by winning Playoff #2 against 30+ teams! Great game everyone…GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL THIS SUNDAY AT WORLD SERIES 9!
PLAYOFF 3 – BELLES – MARYLAND
The fantastic Saturday sun was beginning to set as the finale of our Pub Crawl was about to begin at Belles. Again 30+ teams rolled on in to play our final Maryland Playoff and Pub Crawl Game! There was eating, there was certainly drinking; there was good ol’ fashioned smack talk, and there was even some very interesting “team logos” being drawn and passed around the bar!
The Pub Crawl standings were close and could have gone any number of ways. The Playoff teams also mixed it up for a couple of hours. In the end, Belles’ hosted a pretty dern awesome bar trivia finale! Here’s how the third game went down…
AND NOW…. I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE…OUR PUB CRAWL 2014 CHAMPIONS…
