Trivia Recap – July 6, 2017 – Wurst Bar

We came, we saw, we played some trivia…and didn’t win any prizes! And we are strangely not that bothered by it! For nine consecutive Wednesdays, we have won prizes in our My Trivia Live games at The Wurst Bar (and one game played at Fenders Bar and Grill in Milan). Since we’ve been on the other side of the prize fence so much lately (the non-winning side) – we know how annoying that can be! It’s like that song that hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts that just seems to stay in that spot…and stay in that spot…and get overplayed on the radio so much that it becomes your own personal earworm – and you can’t get the song out of your head. Did I just describe to all of you what it’s like to be me when I get a song stuck in my head? Just today I got a song from high school band in my head called “Rush Street Tarantella,” a little Italian ditty we jokingly called “Rush Street Tarantula.” All digressions about songs that get stuck in my head aside, we’ll just chalk up our non-win to, (hopefully) appeasing the trivia gods! May this act restore balance, please accept our noble sacrifice, o trivia gods! What? It HAS to be blood (pssst…it’s ALWAYS blood)? Groan…all right, I guess I’ll sneak into a petting farm when no one’s looking, lol…JK, this is all in jest, people! Don’t blame us if some livestock go missing from a petting farm 🙂Ahem..and here are those game questions!

For an extra three-point bonus, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson and Anthony Hopkins are all celebrating which birthday this year? Strangely enough, I knew what year Dustin Hoffman was born (see, I don’t just get stupid songs stuck in my head, sometimes valuable facts get stuck there too).

We bet it all and missed.
Zero betters took the game – Team Tommy, 56; Emmett Street Irregulars, 60; and Team Pants, 62 (they wagered zero and got it right). Until next time, which will be tonight! Let’s see if we can win our second prize of the season at Original Gravity Brewing Co. tonight! Yes, we know all too well what it’s like to not win anything in trivia games (whine). As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, you Barcelona pickpockets!
