We learned an important lesson last night at Pitfire Pizza in Noho: if there is one topic even more contentious than religion or politics, it is the issue of whether Russian dressing and Thousand Island dressing are the same thing. They are NOT, of course. But it did stir quite the debate!
Last week's winners, A Team Has no Name, broke out to an early lead by doubling on the first round, but then stumbled badly in Round 2, by getting stung on the double! (You know the old saying: "Live by the Double; die by the Double!" - I think that's Thoreau!)
That misstep gave Goodbye Rachel (You Traitor) the opportunity to take the lead with a Double in Round 2! But alas, they stumbled in the third round, giving way to Trivia Science Theater 3000, who Doubled in Round 3, took the lead and never looked back - though Westeros Baptist Church and Puppy Pals didn't make it easy for 'em.
A word or two about the weather: King Trivia's weekly quiz-fest takes place in Pitfire's capacious outdoor patio area. And there is nothing quite like a balmy summer evening out on the deck, as the soft summer breeze spreads the delicious aroma of fresh baked pizza through the gallery. If you haven't experienced this for yourself, come on out to the patio some upcoming Tuesday night. It is truly sublime.
But do it soon and arrive early! They ran out of chairs last night!!
