Capitol City Brewing Company – Arlington, VA

As we nch closer to the end of the season, we have a few teams in prime trivia mode, and one of those teams is the Capital Hillbillies (tonitght playing as Tryptophan Coma).  They took home yet another win as rolled right through tonight’s set, and nailed the final for their fourth win in the last five weeks.  Second place went to ALL CAPS who was back after a short hiatus, followed by Gus Polinksi and the Kenosha Kickers.  next week begins with a question on “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!”  ~ Matt

Champion Billiards – Frederick, MD

I can’t wait to tell you our first category for next week! I’m going to jump ahead of it all, and just tell you… it’s an audio question, who wrote it? Puccini, Verdi or Rossini? You know with a first category like that, there can only be one team who took first.. You got it- Wiser but still Dead! Dale has had his way with next weeks first question and this is the result. I guess we should all just be glad that I didn’t get stuck singing Barber of Seville.. Figaro, figaro, FFFIIIGGGaro!

No lingering tryptophan effects here! (Actually, fun story- there’s more tryptophan in chicken, pork and duck than there is in turkey) You guys were on point and put up some good numbers, if it wasn’t for a couple humdingers you all would have really high the high notes. It was that damn SOB question! Man! Although it did lead to a good discussion about what DTF means to each of you – be careful with your bumper stickers 😉

3rd tonight was down to a terrible tiebreaker- no one went with an answer of too damn many episodes of DWTS (Is that an acceptable acronym?) but the closest to the pin was 2nd place! In 3rd place! hehe. 2nd went to the gentlemen of Hate us cuz they Anus! Couple team members down and they still made their presence known! Or was that just a birthday present to Mark 😉

See you next week all, be safe out there! I can’t wait to hear what the results were of Crystal Methodists and Jungle Fevers parking lot throw down! I expect some jets and sharks chirography was caught on video.

Cugini’s Restaurant – Poolesville, MD

Coming out of the 3rd round in tonight’s game here at Cugini’s, there was only a 5 point difference between 1st place and 7th! It was a real close game coming into the end as well, so here are your results:

Lightfoot in 1st
You Never Know in 2nd
MoMo in 3rd

You will have a guest host next week, so please take great care of Eric, he is one of our better hosts! Your first category will be Gerontology: Diseases of the Elderly. See ya in two weeks!

Celebrity Bar and Grill, Hollywood Casino – Perryville, MD

I had a wonderful surprise visit from one of my favorite teams last night at Celebrity Bar & Grill! There was also a pretty good back and forth battle for two of the top spots as well.

After the final question, the top 3 looked like this… In 3rd place we had Buck’s Minions, in 2nd was Jersey Shore, and with 3 of their core members back in town from Texas, American Outlaws couldn’t be stopped for the win!!

They picked a show from the 60’s, “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” as next Tuesday’s winner’s choice category, so study up and I’ll see everyone next week at Celebrity Bar & Grill!!

Greene Turtle – Hagerstown, MD

What a great game of live trivia at the Turtle Tuesday! There was a moment in the fourth round when a lot of scores flipped around.

Cotton Candy had been in the lead all night and stumbled on a few questions, letting rival teams catch up! In the end, The Cobras strategically wagered zero and climbed back into third. Second place was snatched up by That’s a Niner. And Cotton Candy, once again took first.

Next week’s Winner’s Choice will be the movie Ever After.

Orioles Nest #331 – Frederick, MD

The first of December means it’s really almost Christmas now, and at the Orioles Nest they had plenty of Christmas decorations up to show it. Tonight’s game of trivia featured some tough questions and even a DOUBLE tie-breaker, which was really exciting stuff! The game started out pretty well, even though we had a question about ‘Disney Tsum Tsum’ to start the game, which almost nobody in the place had even heard of before, including me. The opening round went by pretty quickly with a question about The Wicked Witch of the East coming up, as well as the first guy to run a four-minute mile, which is unbelievably fast. I was glad a few teams were able to remember Roger Bannister was the man to accomplish that feat.

In the next round the audio question asked about three songs with the same one-word title, which were all ‘Photograph’ by Def Leppard, Nickelback, and Ed Sheeran, respectively. I think everybody knew the shared title, but Ed Sheeran proved to be the hardest one to get for the artists. Money was next, as we asked about Russia’s currency, which almost everybody knew was the Ruble, but only one team knew that the Ruble can be divided into 100 Kopeks, nice job Book Club Babes. The next question about poetry proved to be a bit of a trap for a bunch of teams, as we asked about a ‘Lord’ poet who wrote the line “‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all” which was by Alfred Lord Tennyson, but unfortunately most teams went with Lord Byron.

The first half ended with a change-a-letter question which was tough for a few teams, asking about the largest Bay in the world, as well as an analgesic, which were Bengay/Bengal. Halftime tonight featured a top half that was really tough for pretty much everybody, as well as a bottom half that almost everybody breezed through. The quiz shows were tough to identify, and only a few teams got the more obscure ones, like ’21’ or ‘500 Questions’.

The second half opened with a 3 clues/1 country question about the country of Albania which stumped quite a few teams, although a few did know it just on the first two clues. I was impressed by how many teams knew the Theatre question that came up, asking about Thornton Wilder’s play ‘Our Town’. The NBA Hall of Famers question asked about The Round Mound of Rebound himself, Mr. Charles Barkley, who was the shortest person to lead the NBA in rebounding for a year, at 6′ 6″.

Starting the final round was a question about current hit songs, and asked about a song I’d never heard of before, which honestly doesn’t happen to me often in that category. The song was called “S.O.B.” and only a few teams knew it, with everybody else just guessing random things like WTF. The next question asked about French Protestants with a name that is difficult to spell, which was talking about the Huguenots, which nobody actually spelled correctly.

I liked the “Dancing With the Stars” winner’s question, mostly because it gave us a chance to ask about the legendary Donny Osmond, who apparently was a teen idol back in the ’70’s and I know at least one team in particular was super excited when we asked about him. I only know him as the singing voice for Li Shang in Mulan (he’s the general that sings “I’ll Make a Man Out of You”). I liked the last question in round four, not because it was tough, but because it asked about one of the most bizarre international incidents, which was when a guy threw shoes at George W. Bush during a press conference. My favorite part of that incident was Bush’s reaction, especially his facial expressions.

Heading into the final we had a tie for first place, and the final question about Orangutans proved to be a bit on the easier side, as almost everybody got it and the standings didn’t change. Unfortunately, the original tiebreaker, which was to guess the number of episodes of “Dancing With the Stars”, ended up not working as both teams guessed the exact same number somehow, both guessing 140 (which was wayyy off, there’s been 373 episodes). With that happening, I had to come up with a second tiebreaker, which ended up being the population of Albania, and we had a winner on that one. Third place tonight went to the Smarty Pants, and losing on the tiebreaker and taking second place was Black Steel. Winning tonight’s game, congrats to Fractured But Whole! Next week we start with a question about the movie ‘Zoolander’, which is one of my favorites! I’ll see you all again next week!

Until next time,

Quincy’s South – Rockville, MD

A bit shifted tonight but still had the same ole feel to it all! Glad to hear a number of you came prepared tonight after watching That Thing You Do! One of my favorites, hope you enjoyed it too. The holidays have passed us so we have trivia games to hold us down for another 3 weeks or so and then we get back in the holiday spirit with Christmas time! Perhaps snow is coming this year; we’ve had a LOT of rain recently, if it gets cold enough, we could be seeing a winter wonderland some time soon! Fingers crossed!

Now on to the live trivia: The question of the night tonight was our Poetry question. “Tis better to have lost and lost than never to have loved at all”, those famous words were spoken by the famous Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Only a few teams getting it, even with the “Lord” given as a hint. Got a few “Byron”s but he was already dead before the poem was written and Victoria was queen AND he never was Poet Laureate… Byron seemed like a desperation guess, but that doesn’t explain the high wagers on it… Oh well, we live and we learn!

Going into the final question tonight we had If We Lose the Terrorists Win leading the way by a few points. Just behind them was Uncle Jack. The other teams were so far back behind these two trivia powerhouses that the final question wouldn’t have an impact; either of these teams was gonna win tonight, just a matter of who. The final played a bit easier than usual, about 75% of the teams picking up a correct response, including our leaders, making If We Lose your winners tonight! 2 in a row now! Great game tonight! 2nd place goes to Uncle Jack and Quiz in my Pants takes 3rd! We’re back in a week, I’ll see you all then!

1st Place: If We Lose, The Terrorists Win
2nd Place: Uncle Jack
3rd Place: Quiz in my Pants

Next week: Due South

Due South Trivia Pour House Pub Trivia Maryland

Senor Tequila’s – Germantown, MD

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again; when it comes to Pour House Trivia, you never know what to expect at Senor Tequila’s! We had another wild night tonight!

Highlights of the Night:

In “Misleading-Category-Titles”: When you have a category with a homophone in the title, and someone asks me which spelling, I oblige for the sake of clarity. When the question turns out to make the homophone irrelevant, it irritates everyone who thought they had a handle on it. Curse you All About Ants!

In “Bleeding-From-The-Ears”: I want to go ahead and apologize for subjecting you all to the audio clue tonight. No one should have to listen to both Def Leppard and Nickelback. I apologize for Ed Sheeran too, but only because that song makes me cry…

In “Wrong-Sibling!”: Guys, Li Shang is a guy, he’s the hunky general who’s gonna Make a Man Out of You! So no, he was not voiced by MARIE Osmond, but DONNY Osmond! At least you were in the right family, but come on!

The final had little effect on the standings, so after a tough 4th round we had our podium set.

In third place, Furious George!

In second place, Hobgoblins!

In first place, the John Lithgow Fan Club!

Great game everyone! Next week we’re gonna kick things off with the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Study up, and we’ll see you next time!

Until then,
Ian

Tilted Kilt – Frederick, MD

December is here, and with the colder temperatures come tougher trivia sets! We had quite a photo finish this week, as teams swapped positions several times over the course of our game. But who would be victorious?

We learned all about “having loved and lost” (thanks, Tennyson!), discovered “the first atheist country”, and even broke the fourth wall with Our Town. Incidentally, I learned all about drunk guys who’s night will be RUINED if they don’t hear, “Brick in the Wall”.

As our game wound down, all accumulated leads were wiped away by a tough fourth round. headed into the final it was anyone’s game, and with everyone pulling the right answer, we had our winners. Taking third tonight was Poovey Farms, followed by At Least We Tried in second and leaving Duchess to claim first.

They’ve chosen, “The Searchers” as next week’s first category, so hit up your movie collection and I’ll see you next week!
