As the east coast succumbed to cryostasis, we at Atlantic Grille in Urbana staved off the cold with an exciting game of trivia!
Mom’s Night Out snagged second while Strangers Have the Best Candy slid into first (ooh, perhaps a bad pun considering the roads).
They’re stretching my impression abilities – next week’s winners’ choice category is Eric does the Terminator. So snuggle up warm, grab some hot chocolate, and spend your snow day with cyborgs Keep safe, y’all!
It was 7:45pm and I left Frederick for Hagerstown with snow already hindering my pace. I was keeping my fingers crossed that my Hagerstown friends would venture out for some pub trivia game-age. And that they did… We had a stellar Snow-pocalypse trivia game tonight! Thanks a bunch everyone for venturing out in this craziness…so happy we got to play And thanks also for the offers to crash if I couldn’t get out…home safe
Things I learned tonight
1. I apparently have “Umami” issues
2. If the word “beer” and the words “red, white, and blue” are in the same sentence…that sentence refers to Pabst Blue Ribbon. PERIOD! Even if doesn’t. It does!
3.At least 1 out 4 people I talk to would like to travel to Laurel and try CURLING (road trip???)
Great times in Hagerstown tonight my friends. Apologies to Too Husky for Sandusky for ALMOST saying your real team name out loud, but it was good to see the whole fam out playing some bar trivia and you did it well, took down the WIN! Props all around yall! Shhh the kids will hear
2nd Place went to Stink Floyd, who drove from Frederick in the snow to play a little Wednesday pub trivia, Barefoot Bernies style. And SOLO might I add! Awesome finish Mr. Mike! Mr. Mike incidentally holds the Pour House trivia record for most individual venue wins, AS A SOLO, in Pour House history at 14!
3rd Place went to Say Hi to Your Mom for Me who hung in there all night as a duo and managed to close for another Top 3 feather in their trivial caps.
As usual, we had our powerhouse Uncle Jack leading going into the final question.
Unable to nail the final answer, Uncle Jack left an opening for the teams behind them to make their mark here on the Bennigan’s scoreboard.
The 4th Spy came from behind to steal the victory by nailing the final question, one of just a handful of teams to grab it! Excellent game guys. The Usual Suspects also got the correct answer, moving into 2nd place.
Uncle Jack was able to pad their miss well enough to take down the 3rd place prize as well as the extra points for the venue standings. I have a feeling this is gonna be a good one to watch unfold as the season continues!
I’m glad everyone was up for the ‘speed version’ of Pur House Trivia at T.J. Stone’s on Wednesday night, as we rolled through the set in order to beat the snow. Our winners from each of the last two weeks, the B-58s, stumbled out of the gate as they confused Ellen DeGeneres’ ex-girlfriend with her current wife. So, we had a two-team race for the top as Eric Chen and Winners in Life took command in round two. Eric Chen hit a few bumps in the road in round three, so Winners in Life held a comfortable lead as we hit the final question. Dr. Seuss stumped our top teams, and it allowed the B-58s to come from behind and take down three in a row! Great Job! Winners in Life took second with Eric Chen sneaking itno third. The Presidential Birthday cavalcade returns next week with the first question on George Washington. ~ Matt
