TCBY + Orange Crush + “Fatal Attraction” Glenn Close = A Very Sweet Wednesday Trivia Night
7 venues opened up their Season 9 trivia gates tonight and allowed Pour House Trivia teams to finesse (or bum-rush) their way through a great set of questions! Thanks for coming out in this cold stuff everyone. Good news is we are off and running and Season 9 looks like its gonna be a good one on all fronts!
Barefoot Bernies – Hagerstown, MD
Fresh off their World Series 8 win, the crafty crew of Slapsgiving were in the house tonight and came out of the gates meaning business! They held that lead through 4 rounds, a puzzle a 6-4-2 and then…the final hit…
The teams at Barefoot Bernies were all bunched up close at the end within a few points of each other. And it proved to be a tough final… and the winning crew took it down with a wager of ZERO. Congrats to “Save Hi to Your Mom for Me,” on a great move at the end FTW!
2nd Place did in fact go to the slap givers themselves, Slapsgiving! As always gentlemen (the lady was not there tonight)…well palyed!
3rd Place this evening was the very consistent, Obi Wanna Blow Me…who promise a new team name by next week…I am excited to hear what comes out of those brains
Next week we begin with a fun one. Say Hi to Your Mom has chosen Video Game Audio as R1 Q1 for next week. And as agreed I will also throw in a R3 Q1 of another Watership Down question. Have a great weekend everyone…I’ll see you next Wednesday dg
Cellar Door – Frederick, Maryland
Some new faces down in the underground of Cellar Door tonight- And some old new faces Always a good time, but there are some nights.. yeah.. just yeah. So much fun with you all! What a way to start the season! We even had a tiebreaker! It was Trivia Boobs who fell a few thousand short and had to settle for a 3rd, One Crow Short of a Murder did it up in their first night back home and took a 2nd. It was the wiley crew over at TNC who took first with a strategic wager however. Nice game! I have zero desire to listen to Hell is for Children, but I do desire to see you all back here next week for Music Theory.. ~Samantha
Valley Grill – Middletown, MD
We had a fine start to Season 9 at the Valley Grill Sports Bar in Middletown, and the final really turned things around for a few teams. It was Scott’s Tots who won the first game of the season, with Fat Kids are Hard to Kidnap taking a giant leap into 2nd with a correct final answer! Simple Minds nailed that final as well and managed to move into 3rd. See you again next week, where our first category will be “Power Ballads”. ~ Ronnie
Fast Eddie’s – Fairfax, Virginia
Close competition all evening at Fast Eddie’s!
All teams were within striking distance of sweet, sweet prizes when the final question rolled around, but only three were able to take home those prizes.
Third place was Mess and Jeg.
The top two, separated by a single point were the two teams with correct answers: No Brains at the Bar, who were first, and Evan and Kit, in second.
Next week’s first category is the excellent Fox animated sitcom Bob’s Burgers!
Atlantic Grille – Urbana, MD
Bennigan’s – Clarksburg, Maryland
It was our 2nd week here at Bennigan’s, 1st week of the new season, and already we have HUGE TRIVIA CROWDS coming out! The competition is fierce and Bennigan’s is legit. Leading for most of the night was Uncle Jack, remaining in first going into the final question. After a final question that completely wiped the bar, Uncle Jack held on for the win! Congrats! Hope to see ya next week, Uncle Jack! The Kennedy Package and The 4th Spy finished in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively. Until next Wednesday when our first question will be in the category of US Presidents! – Bill
T. J. Stone’s – Alexandria, VA
Season IX began at T.J. Stone’s right where we left off last season, with Standing Room Only trivia. A couple of new teams pushed our total to 15 last night, and the top of the leaderboard was just as crowded. After a great second half, it was the B-58s who snuck into the lead as we concluded round four. Out Season VIII house champs could not come up with the correct response on the final question, which opened the door for….. nobody actually. It might have a good night for soms trategic wagering, but no one was able to catch the B-58s, and they hung on for the win. True Beliebers took second with Virgins & Congress taking third. New in Town and Eric Chin took home a few extra standings points by rounding out our top five. Next week begins with a question on Mardi Gras! ~ Matt
