You guys must’ve read my mind, because you sure made it easy to give out the extra beer with the great team names and holding on through two tough trivia rounds! 

It was TNON times three night and the winners were: Batman Bitchslaps Batmom, Tonight’s Special: Szechwan Poodle, and We don’t like cocaine, we just like to smell it.  The beer was flowing early, perhaps that is why the first two rounds were so rough? Nah, I think it was the unusually tough trivia.  😉

The other clue that the beer wasn’t the problem is that the same three teams that won the TNON, also took 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall.  I’m tellin’ ya, if you get those creative juices flowing right away, it makes all the difference! 

So, congrats times two to overall winners: Batman Bitchslaps Batmom (after taking 3 out of 4 weeks off, they were well rested and ready to rumble)

2nd place overall and the TNON champions of all time didn’t disappoint with the We don’t like cocaine, we just like to smell it, team name.  Everybody loves your names.  Nice work.

Our third place team, the Tonight’s Special: Szechwan Poodle team, has resorted to bringing me newspaper articles that explain their team names and it has worked for the most part!  Here’s the latest explanation:

Restaurant staff told to ‘patiently’ suggest other options for diners

BEIJING – Canine cuisine is being sent to the doghouse during next month’s Beijing Olympic Games.

Dog meat has been struck from the menus of officially designated Olympic restaurants, and Beijing tourism officials are telling other outlets to discourage consumers from ordering dishes made from dogs, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Friday.

Waiters and waitresses should “patiently” suggest other options to diners who order dog, it said, quoting city tourism bureau Vice Director Xiong Yumei.

‘Fragrant meat’
Dog, known in Chinese as “xiangrou,” or “fragrant meat,” is eaten by some Chinese for its purported health-giving qualities.

Beijing isn’t the first Olympic host to slap a ban on the dish.

South Korea banned dog meat during the 1988 Seoul Olympics by invoking a law prohibiting the sale of “foods deemed unsightly.” After the Olympics, the ban was not strictly enforced.

Dog meat is also eaten in some other Asian countries, including Vietnam, the Philippines and Laos.

As you can see, it was a clever name.  And a good night overall for poodles everywhere.

4th place overall was awarded for the first time and well-deserved with only a point between them and the 3rd place team to the Two Weeks without Trivia team.  I missed you guys too!

 There were good showings from several other teams, including Azzuri, a one-man team newbie.  Hope to see you guys back next week for the finale!

Once again, apologies for not seeing all you smarties last week.  Hopefully the extra beer made up for it a bit!  And, next week the Bonanza of Beer will conclude with Part 2.  There will be some fun extra prizes too and I hope to see everyone there for my retirement party!
Until Wednesday, 8pm at Old Chicago Wheat Ridge!
