Public House 29 – Sept. 22, 2016

With Player Pick rounds like “Condiments” and “The Kardashians”, I was very worried about last night’s quiz.  Luckily, we forged through those rounds and managed to make a very fun night out of it. The Bowling Team got their high top table back this week – and also got back to their winning ways with an…

Burger Bar – Sept. 21, 2016

Jurassic Parks and Rec won on Monday, they won on Tuesday, and if they won again last night, that’s called a winning streak. It has happened before, and it happened again Wednesday night, as they made a nice run in round eight to eek out a one point victory over There’s No Crying in Trivia…

Barrel Head – Sept. 20, 2016

We thought the Spongebob round had knocked them out of the running but Dr. Who’s on First fought back valiantly to claim the $25 prize tonight just behind Jurassic Parks & Rec. All of our teams finished within just 6 points of each other but the most impressive part about tonight was that our top…

Market Grille – Sept. 19, 2016

Fun crowd in the house tonight for the last general knowledge quiz of the month at Hy-Vee Market Grille (next week is the Pop Culture Quiz).  Jurassic Parks & Rec certainly had a good night, breaking the 50 point mark and taking home the $50 prize for their effort, followed closely by Sparkle Motion who…

Public House 29 – Sept. 15, 2016

We had several new teams in the house last night – which was good, since there were a few regulars missing!  Eleven and the Bowling team ended the night with 46 points each, so it came down to the halftime tiebreaker – “There are NINE shows that have won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series…

Burger Bar – Sept 14, 2016

As a “seasoned” trivia host, I’ve learned that you’ll have your occasional heckler. What Russ never warned me about was that there is the potential you will have someone sob uncontrollably mid-round a mere three feet from my table. Luckily for everyone playing at Burger Bar, I’m a true professional and fought through the awkwardness….

Barrel Head – Sept 13, 2016

We had a throwback night of trivia at the Barrel Head tonight needing a Tie-breaker round to determine first place. The small southern Illinois town of Valmeyer proved to be the determinant answer with Sexy Chocolate finishing in first with Devin’s an Arsonist just shy at second after the Tie-breaker Here’s the Setlist: Happy Birthday…

Market Grille – Sept. 12, 2016

Fun night.  Great scores.  And more importantly, some excellent team names tonight at Hy-vee.  Bulging Discs broke the 50 point mark, which will usually get you some money.  Sideways in a week led for part of the night, but going 5-6 in each of the last 4 rounds against Bulging Discs cost them tonight, so…

Public House 29 – Sept. 9, 2016

Safe to say, this was the weirdest night we’ve had at Public House 29 this year. Fun night for sure.  But weird. Pro tip:  Parties of 30…get some sort of reservation.  As far as trivia goes, we had a super close night at the top, coming down to a 3-way tie at the top that…

Burger Bar – Sept 7, 2016

We kicked off September at Burger Bar with some fun rounds and some great scores. Law and Disorder came out on top again, as they scored a 51, three ahead of Space Cadets. The setlist: Happy Birthday Space Cadets had the only 12, but Quarter Pound My Angus was right behind them with a 10….
