Whenever I watch Cocktail, I wonder to myself, “What if Brian Flannigan never dropped out of Junior College?” What if he became a successful businessman and was able to create a successful market where malls had bars. Well, for one, that would be awesome, but more importantly it would just prove the power of the American [...]

Everybody walk the dinosaur. By far, the greatest pop hit about dinosaurs of the 80′s. Write it down. It was a small, intimate affair at Billy’s tonight, as the nice weather may have kept a few teams out of the bar. We may have only had three teams, but those three teams gave it their [...]
Brooklyn Stable last evening saw a small but impassioned crowd. Team X played from the far side of the bar, masterfully balancing enjoying the game with racking his brain for a team name. The young guns, Team Firecrotch, positioned close to the trivia action with beers and wings. A late arrival, going by The Team, kept [...]
It was a long and prosperous night at the Thirsty Lion for our All Star Trek quiz. We beat the gong for William Shatner’s 81st birthday in style, quizzing on the the Final Frontier and raising money for a worthy cause. The local Star Trek theater troupe Trek in the Park was there to help us [...]

Gracious me oh my. If you weren’t at the Thirsty Lion Pub last night, then you certainly missed out on the one and only time (a year) that you get to smack talk and compete against those clever Quizmasters; as opposed to the smack-talking and obeying completely that goes on weekly. THAT”S RIGHT! Last night [...]
We’re going to have an early St. Patrick’s Day party this Tuesday. Come join us!
Our spellers were in the house, ready to spell away. We had our bingo round which resulted in Team Awesome taking an early lead over Team Short Bus, Team I-C-U-P and JC. We moved on into the 2nd round of A to Z…while the answers were mostly correct, it was the spelling that got to [...]
I guess if they can have Christmas in April, we can have Halloween in May. Or at least Horror themes. Anyways, last night’s quiz at Hal’s was the opposite of horrific, with every team in the running for first place through the entire game. Newcomers to our quiz “Team Irish” and “Crew Jones and the [...]
