This week we had lots of people stick around because they were having a good time at Jay’s Wednesday night trivia. We gave away some sweet sports team hats and $10 and $20 to Jay’s. The Lonster won round one. Dave and #1 came in first overall, while Team Frank came in at round 3 and stole the show and got second overall.

I’m just going to call this team Team Frank. Frank (second from right) would like to go on a date. He has provided me with his cell phone numer, work #, home phone #, his best friend’s number, his boss’s number, and even his mother’s phone number. Thanks Frank, I don’t think I’ll have a problem getting in touch with you. I’ll probably call your mom first.

Team Dave and #1 took first place overall! You guys may be competitive on the golf course, but you make a great trivia team.

Lonster was having such a good time that he phoned home to make sure it was ok with the wife if he stayed an extra round.

T had some trouble with some of the questions, but we had a great time discussing Las Vegas in depth.

It was a rollercoaster crowd, with teams coming and going, but that just seemed to make everyone think they can win.  An so we finished with 3 different winners, each round was up for grabs.

We started with 7 teams. Norwegian Refugees came out of the gate firing, and we expected them to.  Me and You and Blarney Buddies put up a good chase.

Round 2 saw the addition of No Team Name, Sexy Bitches and Lloyd and Henry, so we were playing with 10 teams.  This is where Team Diesel found time to shine.  They had to leave after the round which started an exodus of teams in contention.  Team Eric, My Couch Pulls Out But We Don’t, and Better Than Awesome had racked up some points but all decided it was time to leave.

Shout out to Lloyd and Henry who seemed to score well on the questions that everyone else struggled with.

The Bonus Beer Question earned No Team Name a bucket o’ beer.  And then they went on to win Round 3. But they missed round 1 so they didn’t have enough to score in top point for the evening.

There were only 3 teams that played the entire night and the two top scorers were Norwegian Refugees and Blarney Buddies. Me and You was shut out which almost never happens. Yikes.

BTW, it was a very good night for style point answers.  Which always makes me happy!

So let’s meet again next week and try this again!

Ciao for now,

Smashing Trivia Debut at City Pub! February 26, 2009

We had a fantastic and well attended night of trivia last night at City Pub! For those of you unfamiliar with City Pub, it’s the sister bar of Denver landmark City Grille. I’m glad to report that they have the same award-winning burgers as well as unbeatable drink specials.
On to the trivia! We had a total of 8 teams, of course all of which were 1st timers. The game was played with great enthusiasm and spirit, with no one cheating, tattling, and even teams shaking hands post-match.
When the dust settled it was Slumdog Billionaires that were at the top of the trivia heap. Sotally Tober took 2nd place and offered a ton of trivia promise. UConn T’s and Samson Keepers tied for third. Black Talon and Chyna White, while having the best name came up short. Team Fabio, 2 Sexy Chicks, and Team Sabotage, better luck next week!

The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round February 26, 2009

So it was Ash Wednesday.  I hadn’t decided what to give up for lent, so I didn’t give anything up.  What am I saying?!  I’m not even Catholic.  I don’t attend church regularly.  I just thought it would be fun to give something up that I don’t really need.  But if I didn’t do a New Year’s resolution, I guess I shouldn’t paricipate in this.  Anywho…

2-25-09-069Short Bus was a mere two folks tonight.  They must have been in sync, cause they did pretty darned good.  They came in one point ahead of the next team and avoided a tie breaker.

2-25-09-070They were a few minutes late and missed the first question.  That also meant that if they had that extra point, they may have won the game.  King Prawns hasn’t been around in a while.  And Jen really hasn’t been around.  So the girl with the curly hair is looking for a man, if any of the readers are interested.  🙂

Staff Infection answered most of the questions this week.  They didn’t get their picture taken because I flat out forgot.  But if anybody knows Jo, she’s moving to Korea soon, so you should stop in and say HI.

Oh you quitters, you can’t win if you don’t stay the whole time!  Team 2-25-09-072Chronic played, but not till the end.  I really didn’t ask what their team meant.  Chronic Mental Illness (ok, that’s the people from my day job).  Chronic liar (that’s my ex-boyfriend).  Chronic Drunk.  Ok, I guess that’s about it.

2-25-09-071I’m not sure if it’s because there was three players or if they’re kinky.  3-some was new to the game and played the duration.  They would have been third place if there was one.  Come back next week!!

 

2-25-09-073Welcome back, TKO.  I was rooting for the underdog this week, but you guys weren’t able to get quite enough points.  Better luck next time!

Well that was our players this week.

See you next week!  Maybe we can get everyone’s picture with Jo.

I Love Dress Up!!!! February 26, 2009

It was time for Mardi Gras celebrations this week.  We kicked it off with some beads, masks, and jester hats.  I even got to play the mysterious trivia host this week.

We had lots of regular teams.  We also had an ahem, theme to some of the names this week.  You might notice it if you think of felines while reading this.  And honestly, I didn’t realize it until just now.  LOL, probably just like that cigarette joke from this week.  Sorry Jon, maybe I didn’t get it because I don’t smoke.  I’m just not sure.

There were some good drink specials: 75¢ Miller High Life, $2 Absolute drinks, $3 Southern Comfort, and $20 for a bucket of Corona’s.

2-25-09-053They were back this week and not arguing.  YAY.  I guess War Kittens is just lucky that I forgot how argumentative Tory was last week.  I’ll do better at trying to remember your short comings next time!  Either way, they won all three pitchers of beer and the game with a five point lead.

2-25-09-064Second place went to Alleycat.  They were missing the Al part of the team again this week.  My warmest wishes to you!

2-25-09-061Third place wasJT‘s this week.  Tim had this awesome beaded necklace with these little empty bottles of shooters.  It’s a terrific idea.  I think I should start buying and saving so I can make my own next year 🙂

We had lots of other teams that played this week:

2-25-09-059Erebus made another return to trivia this week.  Maybe it was because he realized the ex-host plays.  Cause I think he had a thing for you know who. 

2-25-09-066I might bring my mom next week to play on Phyllis’ team.  He was donning a different hat this week and always ready to play the game. 

2-25-09-060I still swear that he looks like he could be the brother of this guy that I used to know.  They started a little bit early and couldn’t hang through the whole game.  Corona Street, I wonder where you live?   Hmmm, could it be just a few streets over from Charlie’s? 

2-25-09-062Planet Unicorn played for two rounds and then bugged out.  Well ladies, I must admit, I’m super duper happy that we made up this week.  I can assume that straight girls tend to be a little bit weird to you guys, but I’m glad that we’re all getting along now.  And really, I hope that you enjoy St. Patty’s day in St. Louis (that’s where you’re going, right?).

2-25-09-054Oh how I love this crew.  Chris stayed more than half the game.  And Zach didn’t get to play the whole time.  But they played when they could.  Mardi On Wayne was a great name for a great team!

2-25-09-056If you didn’t notice, Guido was our bartender for the beginning of the night.  His pals were playing trivia and sitting at the bar hanging out.  They called themselves Guido’s Pussy’s.  These guys tend to start the game, but can’t commit to the duration.  They stayed the first two rounds and then left.

Alright guys, sorry the blog was a little bit tardy.

This was the kick off for the St. Patrick’s Day Mini-Tour and there were plenty of give aways. There was also an interesting contest. They had a Lucky Charms and Guiness contest.  You guessed it the Guiness was the milk. 

We had lots of fun… Here is the run down…..

Volcano Monitors took round 1 and first overall on the night.  They also had some very heated debates on some of the answers.

Ok, so now the next few pics are of the group of 30 that came in and knew to split up… unlike some teams I can mention…. But you all came up together, and when picture time came around you were all over the place- so here is what I have for the following teams- KEN’S LEFT BEHIND, GATE 4 TROUBLEMAKER, HALF BAKED CLAMS, CENTROIDS and SOUTHERN EASE PARKER

It was an even mix of the old die hards, and the new geek heads, with plenty of prizes to go around for all.

First round very close with 7 teams separated by 1.5 points. OMG Pink Ponies and We Need A Ride Home tying, and OMG winning the tie-break.

But We Need a Ride got their beer in any case, because the Bonus Beer Question went to Sticky Fingers, and he didn’t want to drink the entire pitcher himself so he shared with Ride Home. Sweet!

We were sorry to see Team Travis Webb and Team Black pack it in after just the first round, but I think we’ll see them again. But they were replaced by Team BJ’s and Team Elmo, so we held at 10 teams for most of the night.

Round 2 was all over the map. There was a 7 point difference between first and last place which put some teams out of the running.  Vegetarian Spank Inferno won round 2.  But Bee Phobia and Cougars had dug a hole too big to climb out of so they gave up early in the third round.

Round 3 was another close one, with a cluster of 6 teams vying for the win.  Asses on Fire pulled it out but Vege Spank, Sticky Fingers, We Need A Ride, TEam Elmo, and OMG Ponies were just edged out.

A shout out to Half Pints who struggled thru the evening but never gave up. That’s the fighting spirit we like to see!

For top points overall, it was Vege Spank Inferno and Asses on Fire that walked away with prizes.

It was sooooo close, so I hope you’ll come back next week to kick it up a notch!

til then.

Ciao for now,

Tuesdays at The Glenn in Northglenn with Preacher February 20, 2009

Hey everyone, hope you’re February has been Valenterific and moon pies and pennywhistles await you in March. This week at The Glenn in Northglenn we had 9 teams duking it out for the win. In round 1 the questions were tough and all teams stayed in pretty close competition. By the final category 1 team barely managed to pull ahead be a single point, giving Ballsackgalactica the win with Gods of Wrong Answers in second and a tie for third between Debbie’s Team, Smitty and Mad Dog.

Round 2 and everyone is still working hard on those questions with no one able to dominate. Team J, Mad Dog, Gods of Wrong Answers, Ballsackgalactica, and Sazz all going back and forth with the lead. We finished with, yet again, a single point win by Ballsackgalactica followed closely by J.

Round 3 and it’s the same teams battling it out. This time we do have a tie! Newcomers 5$ Footlong and old timers Mad Dog with great scores go into the tie breaker. With a dead on answer, Mad Dog took the win.

Hope I see you all next week! Peace and Love!

Just back from NY (sorry ’bout not blogging last week but was rushing to catch a plane), and a bit jet-lagged, but you guys sure livened things up!

We started with 8 teams but The Table only played intermittently. And Team Huskers got a phone call and had to jet.  Since they had dominated the last two weeks, this gave everyone else a thirst for winning.

So round 1 went down to the wire with H&G winning by 1/2 point over Norwegian Refugees.

Round 2 was also tight, with 3 teams tied for third – H&G, Aftermath, and Lambs – and Team Hasselhof in second just a 1/2 point ahead.  But Norwegian Refugee won round 2.  After so many weeks in the #2 spot, they were ecstatic.

BTW, the team, Lambs of God started the night with that name but finished the night with Lambs Are Delicious… I’m a little worried to hear how that change took place. Yikes.

You Choose came and went during the night, and Big 2-7 joined us for round 3. Thanks for picking us to celebrate your 27th bday!  And Hoot! struggled this time, but had a few good style point answers – thanks for entertaining me!  Team Hasselhof was in the fray which is surprising since they were serving there was never the same person around to answer consistently.

So for round 3, it was all about catching Norwegian Refugee which had just a 1.5 pt lead over the closest competitor.

Aftermath stepped up and hit a long ball, scoring 22 points in the last round which made him a clear winner…

but that gave him a point total of 39 points for the evening. And Norwegian Refugee had… (drum roll)… 39.5 points.  For the first time in ages, Norwegian Refugee had a 1st place finish, and Aftermath had made a great 3rd round comeback to steal 2nd from H&G.

Exciting night, good teams, fun time.

Join us next week to get in on the action, won’t you?

Ciao for now,
