Holy bingo round, Batman! We’ve got four teams with a fighting chance for the first ever Space Room Saucer! Each week, this fearsome foursome has stared down each other in their season-long march to inevitable victory. But only one can prevail — will it be you, or will you be the spoiler in another teams [...]
Wow, where did the time go? Oh, that’s right — Thanksgiving and the Civil War game have gobbled it up. There’s only two weeks left in The Belmont Steak, and it’s looking like a two-team race to the finish. But that doesn’t mean anyone should let up — your team could be the spoiler — [...]
What a cozy, festive night we had at the Space Room on Wednesday — with pie (for me) and (Wild) turkey (for the quizees), it was almost like a real Thanksgiving! We even had some of the neighbors over (a.k.a. Belmont Inn quizees looking for a fix this week) and family came from out of [...]
Week two at Shanahan’s and I’ll be so bold as to say we’ve got a local favorite on our hands. Last week was our inaugural Pub Quiz, but this week, we not only had quite a few returning squads, but a few new teams too. As one team told me after the quiz, “This is [...]

Boo Death. As for that number mentioned above, 37, that’s for Scooby’s Red Rocket. They have what you might call a [...]
The fact that John Madden eats a Turducken every year on Thanksgiving makes me smile. It’s so absurd and inane, it can only happen in this country. It’s something that we should all truly be thankful for. Tonight’s quiz at the Gypsy was pretty low key, a small yet furious group of quizzers fought the [...]
..translated as thank you for a great location and awesome pub quizzers!! We had a good crowd, ready to feast on a meaty quiz. We had a new team, Prego, show up to win the bingo and take an early lead. The Turduckens were in 2nd and Slapsgiving sat on the bottom, like the sludge [...]
An awesome place like CC Slaughter’s to host a quiz. The crowds may be somewhat lighter, the boys may not know all the sports questions, and the Bar Team may, in fact, gather some help from the random drinker as they pass through Monday night Quiz town, but I gotta tell you boys and girls, [...]
