Trivia Recap – Jan. 19, 2017 – Wurst Bar

A record number of players showed up for our trivia night Wednesday at The Wurst Bar for our regular My Trivia Live outing. Five players! And they were all from our team (IKR)! David decided to join in on the Wednesday fun for a change since he can’t play with us tonight at Sticks 😦 We all seemed to team up nicely on the questions, and of course, there were lewd and rude conversations aplenty! We finished in first, won a $30 gift card and (gasp) got the final question correct! Go ahead…you can start defibrillating yourself right now, we’ll wait (elevator music plays, “Arthur’s Theme” from Christopher Cross). Done? Good! Ready to read some questions? OK!

Got it. We finished first, Team Pants finished second, and there was a tiebreaker for third, they had to answer this question: “In what year was ‘O Canada’ adopted as Canada’s national anthem? Until next time, which will be Stick’s tonight for a Sporcle With Tim game. Brad has graciously agreed to play the part of Dave for tonight’s game, since he is taking Friday off for a dog show. Best of luck to his deerhounds Tambourine and Kes! As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, R. Kelly!
