Welcoming December with Open Arms!

Can it really be less than three weeks until Christmas?  The calendar is winding to a close, but we’re happy to have all of regular weekend Pour House Trivia players.  Our teams encountered a lot of fun questions, and one Hagerstown team showed they had all the answers this weekend, topping the high score list without even having to wager on the final.  Tough crowd…

WEEKEND STATS AND FACTS (16 teams across three venues):

–> Highest Overall Score: Give Us Your Beer Money (Pretzel and Pizza) and Simple Minds (Belles’) with 165

–> Highest Score after Round 4: Give Us Your Beer Money (Pretzel and Pizza) with 165

–> Highest First Half Score: Give Us Your Beer Money (Pretzel and Pizza) with 89

–> Perfect 21 (correct on all wagers and final): No teams were able to secure the ‘Perfect 21’ this weekend.

–> The average score on our halftime pages was 17.4, but no team managed to score a perfect 20.

SATURDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (36.9% success rate):

–> If one were to travel due west from Los Angeles, what would be the first foreign country that person would land on?  (you’ll find the answer later in this blog)


Belles’ Sports Bar in Frederick, MD

We’re back at Belles’ Sports Bar once again for another fine edition of Saturday night Pour House Trivia!  Man, we breezed right through the first round as these folks came to play.  We went back in time to some classic TV for round 2, and we had a little Simpsons action for the half time puzzle.  Our non hockey fans (me included) found out that there is a trophy in the NHL not named Stanley, and the final round had numerous bird references. Getting close to the World Series so make sure you keep coming out for those points.  Here are results:

First Place:  Simple Minds

Second Place:  And We’re All Out of Bubblegum

Third Place:  Uncle Jack

Our winning team for the Sunday night game at The Beacon really destroyed the competition!  They took an early lead after round 1 and they just kept adding more and more to it with each passing round!  It was pretty impressive to watch… After all was said and done, I’m Just Making This Up as I Go Along finished 3rd, Two Underdogs were in 2nd, and with an insurmountable lead, Witiots were our 1st place winners!!  They decided on Italian Food for next weeks winners choice question, so study up and come visit us this Sunday for a game at The Beacon!!
