OC Superior: Repeat Offenders January 31, 2011

My Friday night trivia regulars were on FIRE this past Friday at Old Chicago in Superior with repeat champion Fuzzy Monkey going for the win, followed ever-so-closely by The Spearheads in second place (after narrowly being beat out in a tie-breaker).

The Spearheads in second place...

Fuzzy Monkey for the win!

We had a ton of teams participating in Friday’s Battle Royale: Buzzed Nerds, Miyagi Dojo’s, Blue Cheese, Snake Wranglers, Oliver Clothesoff, Mr. T’s, It’s T-Shirt Time, Oodles of Noodles, Last Place, Hide Ya Monkey and Gator… so many teams that it stretched my limited math skills and made the game run a little long (thanks for hangin’ in there, teams!)

Although I was a little disappointed that NO ONE could correctly answer my spur-of-the-moment bonus question: Who were the original British counterparts to Jim and Pam on The Office? (Tim and Dawn! Tim and Dawn!) But I still love my players, nonetheless.

At Woody’s Wood-Fired Tavern, not only is it a fight to know which wing you should pick for only 49 cents each, but there’s a fight brewing between two teams that’s escalating into the need for blood!! I might have to start sitting between them!

This was another great week of trivia! With my favorite mixture of regulars and new faces. A particular new team, the A-Team, had a conversation with me about how good looking Edward Norton is and they also knew the real name of the boat Jim and Pam got married on! Team Insomniacs was another new team who joined in while they played pool in the pool room Woody’s has set up. 3 Tangos was a team of friendly guys having a beer and enjoying the game! J-Squared were a couple of fun girls at the bar who gladly signed up to play with us! Team Hot Tamales has too many friends so they broke into another team, the Texas Tornadoes. Our regular team, which wins more often then most, Wizard’s Sleeve has always blew me away with their brains! And, I might be a little biased here, but I just love the team The Bathrooms of Justice (AKA Urinal Cakes).

Round 1 gave us team The Bathrooms of Justice our first place winners, by only 1 point,  and gave them a free round of shots! Round 2 winners were Hot Tamales by another 1 point lead, also getting a free round of shots! After Round 3 we figured out the over-all winners (which was also a really close call!) Team The Bathrooms of Justice got first place and team Wizard’s Sleeve got second place and they both got gift certificates!

All in all this week was a lot of good times!

Join us next Thursday for another fun night of trivia! We start at 8:00 and always have an awesome time! If you want to find my trivia facebook page then look me up! You can tag yourselves in pictures, get reminders on trivia, and be friends with me! Which is the best part! sarah.junkie@yahoo.com

Mellow Mushroomers You Can’t Fool Me and You can’t leave before you get your prize! January 27, 2011

How many times must I tell you my lovely trivia players? I will only accept up to 8 and only 8 answers for the Buzzer Beater question! For example–if you number your answers 1 through 8 and put two # 3’s in your list, I will probably figure it out. I know my math skills are below the national average and it takes me excessive time to tally your scores, but COME ON PEOPLE!

I kid, i kid….as for the rest of this lovely January evening, we had an excellent 3 rounds of trivia. Congrats to Moscow’s Da Bomb for sweeping rounds 1, 2 and our $20 MM gift certificate. As for our second place team, Hot Tang…umm….where did you guys go?!? You know that your $10 Mellow Mushroom credit doesn’t just automatically get added to your bank account, right? Well congrats to Shots Please for stealing their glory and taking second place in their absence. Other noteworthy appearances were made by our standby Operation Kapow, Team BK, Kick in a Box, Team Simon, and the Dizzy Danglers.

O Jessica, Jessica! Wherefore art thou Jessica? While Jessica was with her improv group doing a Shakespeare night I was filling in at Old Chicago!  What a fun night! After a few bumps in the road like an hour one way drive and my MP3 player dying I had a great time with the friendly stuff and fun players! Especially team Snake Wranglers (Formerly the Mama-Js) who turned in a picture with every answer!

We had a fun game including answers of “Al Paso” as a city in Texas that starts with the letter A and “Chuck Norris” as a periodic table element! Also with a tie-breaker so close I had to double check the math! Teams Ding Dong, Team Adam, Harley, Beer, The Nugs, Snake Wranglers (Formerly the Mama-J’s), Harry Potter has Hogwarts, The John Cena Hand Wave, and Keepin’ It Classy all put up a great fight. Team Mr Aaron Rodger’s Neighborhood won the first round and got a free pitcher of beer! Then team Fat Monkey won a free pitcher of beer the second round, which he shared since he was on a team alone. Team Mr. Aaron Rodger’s Neighborhood came in at third place. Team Last Place came in second place, contradicting their team name! And also taking home an Old Chicago gift certificate. Finally, and certainly not last, team Fat Monkey came in first place overall and also got a gift certificate! Single-handedly beating every other team! What a smartie!

Castle Bar and Grill: Snow problem January 21, 2011

Greetings my fellow Castlers. I was wondering who would battle the elements to come out for the Trivia game. After all, I did notice that the Texas Hold ‘Em game was only at one table instead of the usual two.

But, I had nothing to fear. The usual crowd arrived right on time and we started round one right at 8:00

The first round went to ‘Happy Birthday Sharon.‘ They edged out “Joansie” by one point and “Team Armenia” by two. We thought there was going to be some ugliness between the players of trivia nd the non-players that were sitting around the bar. A couple of people enetered the bar after I started asking the questions. A couple of  individuals thought they were being smart by yelling out the answers. The first time was bad enough, but the second time a wise gut shouted out the answers, I was waiting for a couple of teams to go over and inform the loudmouth in question what an unwise decision that was and it should not be repeated.

Round two went to ‘Happy Birthday Sharon’ again. This time ‘Team Armenia’ tied for second with the Royal Bitches. The “Bitches were severly short handed due to the weather.

The final round had Joansie take the win, with ‘HBS’ in second and ‘TBone’ in third.

For the game, ‘Happy Birthday Sharon’ took the gold, ‘Joansie was second and a tie for third between ‘TBone‘ and Royal Bitches’

Go FAST CARS GO!

Slytherin 🙂

Nice and chilly night out on Wednesday January 19th, 2011 but teams made it out to see me and to play! New location at T.G.I. FRiDAYS off of Woodman Blvd and I-25 in Colorado Springs. I had $5.00 gift cards for round prizes, $10.00 gift cards for 2nd place and $25.00 gift card for 1st place.  During round 1, Team Fast Cars was first while in close second was both Slytherin and ZikZak. Round 2 flew by where Slytherin took the round. During round 3, the A-Team joined in and answered a few questions. Round three ended with both Slytherin and ZikZak neck and neck. The last question of the night pushed Slytherin to the top for the win. In close second was ZikZak and then in third was Fast Cars.

This was an exciting week at Woody’s Wood-Fired Tavern! With rivalry growing strong between our nose to nose top teams, …dary and Hot Tamales we had a few show downs but all in good fun. A few shout outs of wrong answers to try to lead the other team astray and heckling, luckily it ended well with Hot Tamales sharing their free round of shots with …dary! We had some very impressive scores this week, as well, and from a lot of newbies! Team Mike n Ikes did great for being on a solo team! Teams Killer Smurfs, Team S.B., Loose Screws, 8 Years Left, and Cobra Khai all did great battling it out! Team Hot Tamales won free shots after round 1. And they also won round 2 winning another round of free shots which they shared with …dary who lost the tie breaker. After round 3, which rewarded me with the answer of “Al Paso” for a Texas city that starts with A, and another tie-breaker we had our winners for the night! Team …dary! came in third place after being a part of the first 2 tie-breakers, though call! Team Amish Fight Club came in second place winning a gift certificate. And then team Hot Tamales came in as first place winners overall, even after being challenged for all 3 rounds of tie-breakers, and getting themselves another gift certificate! It was a great night at Woody’s!

Mellow Mushroom–It’s the weather I swear January 21, 2011

Does anyone else feel like the weather sometimes messes up your whole universe? Sadly I forgot my camera this week, so no pics. Blame it on the snow that created frightening road conditions!

We had some new talent premiering this week–congrats to Big Ward for winning round 2 with a near-perfect score! The TA’s, also  a new team, came in second overall, while the Ice Buckets Full of Water took first in round 1 and overall. I think my favorite part of the evening was the banter between the Sexticles and Big Ward. Good times. Also of noteworthy scores were D&B, Z, and Marx.

Thanks to everyone for playing, I promise there will be  photos next week!

Old Chicago in Superior January 18, 2011

We had another HUGE night of trivia at Old Chicago in Superior this past Friday. Some of our regular teams had to wrestle with hockey families to get good seats in the bar for trivia time. The trivia-philes prevailed though and everyone was ready for trivia and drinking by 9pm!

We had 14 teams playing this week, so there were some huge tie-breakers in Round One and Round Two with Mama J’s taking the pitcher of beer for Round One…and they also kept giving me adorable illustrated answer sheets like this one:

Boat Nectar took the crown in Round Two, beating out stiff competition in the tie-breaker from Mama J’s, Burro Express, Last Place, Cowboy Monkey and Free Mike.

Cowboy Monkey narrowly beat out Birthday Girl and Friends to win the game, but luckily the birthday girl got a second-place gift certificate as a consolation birthday prize.

Team Bel Rea Commercial was in the tie-breaker for Round One and I want to give them props for kissing up the trivia hostess with their name… Thanks, guys!

We bid farewell to SF’d as this was the last night for Mom and Son to come to trivia before Mom had to fly back to the East Coast. ::sniff:: Come back soon!

Also jumping into the trivia fray on Friday night were teams Twig and the Twigettes, Pick 6, Stupid People Clap, Spearheads (feat. Justin Bieber), Assembled Anarchists.

This was a great week at Woody’s Wood-Fired Tavern! A lot of new faces mixed in with our regulars made for a great night. If you haven’t made it out on Thursday night for Trivia, do it! And get some pizza and wings while you’re there!

Our teams this week were Legen…wait for it, A.C., ChiChi, 3 Racks and a Shelf, Hot Tamales, Bad Logic, Lacey Showed Me Her…, Team Gold. The first round was a pretty close call but a few teams really let their colors shine during round 2 and 3! Round one winners were team Bad Logic getting a free round of shots followed by team Legen… wait for it by only 1 point! Round two rewarded team Bad Logic with yet another round of free shots. Team Gold came in second place with Legen… wait for it right behind them. After round three we tallied up the game winners. Third place was Lacey showed me her…., second place and winner of a gift certificate to Woody’s was Legen…. wait for it, and first place winner taking home an even bigger gift certificate was, with no surprise after this night, Bad Logic!
