I was a bit worried when I drove up.  The parking lot was the emptiest I’d ever seen it. And it was empty when I walked in.  I set up, crossed my fingers, and waited.

And they showed up to play trivia!  3 of the regular teams and and handful just looking for some fun!

The Bacon8ers (OC staff) jumped to a quick lead, but we determined that none of them were of drinking age and so the bucket o’ beer was awarded to Don’t Have A Name Yet (DHNY).  Brainy Wacks provided a nice selection of 5 style point answers in round 1, but decided that was all they were good for and gave up.

But we were joined by Mustangs, Phil, and Smutbag… so now we were rockin’.

Bacon8ers were at it again and scored the highest in round 2, but due to some disparaging remarks, I had to disqualify them (tsk, tsk), which then put DHNY and the newbies, Mustangs, in a head-to-head tie-break.  Mustangs captured round 2, and also won the Bonus Beer Question as well.  Don’t know what they did with all the beer because two of them were underage.  And then they decided that They Came, They Saw, The Conquered… and They Left.  This put DHNY, and Beer Ninja in good position for top points for the evening.

Special thanks to Smutbag for adding 8 style points during round 2.

Chugsters weren’t doing so well, so they decided it was time to leave, but we were joined by The Team Formerly Known As Groove.

And then we got to round 3 and it was w-w-e-e-i-i-r-r-d-d.  The new team, The Team Formerly Known as Groove, jumped out to a quick lead.  But they were soon overtaken by Americans Eat Beef who weren’t high on the radar in the first two rounds, and heading into the last question it looked like they had it clenched. Then we came to the last grab bag question which was a killer. Nobody knew… except Phil who had saved their double up, in a gutsy move, for the last question.  That vaulted them ahead of Americans Eat Beef by one point.  AArrggh!  Wow!

For top points on the evening…

Unfortunately for Bacon8ers their entire last round was entered into the score machine as negative numbers, so although they might have had the top points, their actual score turned out to be 2.5 points.

So behind them were Americans Eat Beef (redemption was theirs!) and DHNY which chose the name the Commodores on the very last question.

This knocked Beer Ninja out of a scoring position, but she sure supplied some style points in the last round: 16! Wowza!  And if Phil had been around for 1st round, who knows how things would’ve shaken out.

An exciting night, especially considering how things looked when I arrived!  No matter. Good times!  See you next week… maybe a littler earlier?!

Ciao for now,

– Keith
