Sporcle Live has finally announced when/where the semifinals and state championships will be for Michigan teams. More information here.
Semifinal Spots (all at 6 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, November 17):
5 Lakes Brewing Company (Dorr), Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery (Ypsilanti), Blarney Stone Pub (Berkley), Canton Brew Works (Canton), Eternity Brewing Company (Howell), Freddy’s Bar (Clinton Township), Haymaker Public House (Ann Arbor), Jamboozie’s Sports Bar and Grill (Sterling Heights), Jolly Pumpkin Restaurant and Taphouse (Royal Oak), Lansing Brewing Company (Lansing), Supernatural Brewing and Spirits (Livonia), YpsiAlehouse (Ypsilanti) and one other location TBD.
The state championship game is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday, November 24 at Lansing Brewing Company in Lansing.
I predict this will be troublesome for the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti/metro Detroit teams traveling to this tournament. On that note…
Boy…am I glad we’re not vying for the Sporcle tournaments this time! I didn’t like having to drive to Lansing for a finals in December, 2017 (grrr automated parking structures run by HAL 9000). But which local semis spot do I visit if I plan to be a “spectator?” It looks like I have TWO choices in my area…hmmm!
Good luck to all of the teams competing! I’m actually relieved to not be part of it this time. I can wait until the MTL championships in December!
