The Pour House Trivia Summer Fling Virginia Finals brightened everyone’s rainy day!
The weather could not have been any worse outside, but inside Spider Kelly’s in Arlington on Saturday, the trivia action could not have been hotter! We welcomed 16 of our best and brightest Virginia teams who had been battling it out all summer for a chance to be the Summer champions.
Not surprisingly, the two-time defending World Series champions, High School Prom, came out of the gates firing on all cylinders, notching a whopping 94 points at the end of halftime. There were several teams within range, and in the third round, Jimmy’s in Vegas began to close the gap by nailing every two-point bonus, including one on the extremely difficult animated films question. There were a lot of teams that forgot about this guy…
A couple of bumps in the fourth round dropped J.I.V. into fourth at the end of round four. High School Prom still held the lead, but Capital Hillbillies and Quizlamic Fundamentalists (playing as a duo, no less) were ready to pounce on a mistake. Fortunately, that’s just what they got, as High School Prom could NOT come up with the correct answer on the final, dropping them to fourth place overall.
Your winners: Capital Hillbillies! They had some very close calls over the past two years at our tournament games, so this one was a bit more rewarding. The duo of Quizlamic Fundamentalists took second, with Jimmy’s in Vegas taking third. Thanks again for a great day!
Don’t forget about our newest Virginia venue: Hard Times Cafe in Clarendon! Opening night is Wednesday the 16th! ~ Matt
