Wednesday Saw Packed Bars!
Out in numbers tonight! Blame it on the beautiful weather, the damn fine hosts or even the myriad of amazing brain busting questions but you all were packing in to your favorite Wednesday night venues!
Valley Grill in Middletown, Md
Nice day that turned into a pretty cool night here at Valley Grill in Middletown. I think I saw a flock of tits fly by while I was setting up for tonight’s game, coincidence? Here are the results of tonight’s trivia brawl:
Fat Kid are Hard to Kidnap in 1st
Stupid Sexy Flanders in 2nd
Southpaw Fish in 3rd
Our first category for next week is a Stephen King Page to Screen question! ~ Ronnie
Tonight’s game of Pour House Trivia was…well it was something, at the Revolution Bar tonight. I don’t think we need to go into too much detail tonight…
Suffice it to say everyone was having an off night, myself included. Third quarter nosedives were particularly crushing. Pasadenas were in evidence instead of El Pasos. The Puzzle Page was a toughie and no one did exceptionally well tonight. And then I outright said an answer at one point…
When all was said and done though, correct answers were key and we had a tiebreaker to fix!
In third place, coming from behind, the Screwballs!
In second place, losing the tiebreaker, GT80 Sauce!
In first place, holding on after leading most of the game and winning the tiebreaker, Green Machine!
Good game guys! Next week we’ll kick things off with a Stephen King question! We’ll see you next time!
Last night’s game at The Tavern had such an exciting finish! There’s nothing like seeing 2 teams going into the final question tied for 1st place, both wagering the full 12 points, and then still needing to use a tie breaker question to decide the winner! So finishing in 3rd we had Olney the Lonely. Taking it to extra innings but still always a bridesmaid and never a bride with 2nd was Schweddy Balls. They were just a little closer in the tie breaker to keep their win streak going another week, 1st place once again went to John Lithgow’s Fan Club!! They picked the classic t.v. show “Get Smart” for next weeks winners choice, so study up, have an awesome but safe St. Paddy’s Day, and I’ll see everyone next Wednesday night at The Tavern!!

Tonight we opened up with a question about the Netflix series ‘Jessica Jones’. We asked for the detective agency that Jessica opens in the show, which is called Alias. We also asked a question about Taylor Swift’s cats, which are named for TV characters from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Law and Order: SVU’. The audio question for the night asked for teams to name the groups that all have ‘geographic’ names.
Halftime tonight asked teams to identify flowers by their pictures, as well as matching the title of different Jukebox musicals to the artists whose music is featured. It was an unfortunate coincidence that “Movin’ Out” came on the playlist during halftime, although luckily everybody already knew that one anyway. After the half we had a pretty tough question about the origins of the name ‘Soundgarden’.
I liked the question we had about Super Bowl champions (I might be a bit biased though), which asked for the two teams with the worst winning percentage among winners, winning once and losing twice each. A few teams were able to get to the Seattle Seahawks, as well as the St. Louis (now L.A.) Rams. Disney settings was a popular bonus selection, with several teams acing it as well.
The toughest question of the round might have been the one about The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which only a few teams got. The other hardest question asked for a type of bird also known as a ‘tit’ (which caused plenty of childish snickering), which a few teams knew was a chickadee.
The final tonight asked for a 2001 book that was later made into an Oscar Winning film that apparently moved Obama himself to write a letter to the author about how beautiful the book was. Unfortunately nobody was able to get to ‘Life of Pi’, which led to there being little movement since nobody made any tricky wagers.
Third place tonight went to We’ve Embraced Our Mediocrity, who had a tough start to the game. Second place went to That’s What You Get For Thinking who almost managed to snag the win! However, the win tonight went to Rent-A-Swag!!! Congrats you guys!!! Super exciting stuff right there! Next week we start with a question about the TV series Parks and Recreation! I’ll see you all then!
Until next time,
I can count on one hand the number of times I have gotten to say Tits on the mic before 9pm. Thank you Chickadee! I think my teams had fun with that, or they really had a hard time focusing on the question as I had to read it 5 times… I also loved breaking out the St. Patrick’s music, a good Drunken Sailor sing a long makes hump days better!
Was a good night full of the usual ups and downs, but none shook our leader board like that final! Apparently President Obama in a age to screen just blows everyone’s minds… Cher’s Zombie Army had a hellva lead all game but fell on the final to 3rd. 2nd went to (Whatever joke they are calling themselves this week) Uranus and 1st were those quiet gentlemen of Tokyo Sex Whale. They blew a 9 point and STILL came out on top. That’s impressive. Next week we start with Fictional Apes.
What a game! We were packed for the second week in a row (again, I’d like to think it’s all because of me), and our weekly game has never been more exciting! 14 teams enter, three teams win – those are tougher odds than Thunderdome!
Second Place: Dairy Queen Sure
Barefoot Bernie’s in Hagerstown, Md
What a St.Patty’s Eve of trivia we had at Barefoot Bernies Wednesday night! All of Hagerstown friends ventured out and some Frederick peeps made the trip with me as well! It was indeed a great game. We’ve been having a string of very good games this season at Bernies for sure! We kicked off with our HINT OF THE DAY question and got some political slogan parodies out of our system 🙂 This, of course, evolved later on into a Dirty Limerick contest for St. Patty’s. And, inevitably, fun facts about NANTUCKET are always seeped out.
Amidst the fun and games we did manage to get a great game of trivia in as well.From El Paso to Radon and Little Mermaid to Chickadee, the gamut was covered for sure in Wednesday’s game. But…it was all about the Life of Pi for the win!
And that little nugget was pulled by only our winning team! Great work BIFF! And congrats to the rest of the TOP on a well played contest!
And next week we kick it off with one of my personal favorite games of all time: DUNGEONS & DRAGONS! So polish up the ole d20 and I will see you next Wednesday night for some more shenanigans, Bernies style! Dg
Hard Times Cafe in Arlington, Va
