Wooo, crowded and exciting night at Barney's Beanery Pasadena! Tons of folks out partying and showing their knowledge on this holiday fest eve.

It was anybody's game for most of the night as round 1 brought 5 5s, 2 12s and 2 4s. then round 2 brought us 7 teams got 16 points each! It was a night of successful double downs and devastating smarts!

Pasadena Peeps kicked butt all through the game, even with a 4 for round 3. That lost their lead to Honey Mustard Gas momentarily, but they got it right back. The Peeps were leading by a point the rest of the night until round 7 made them tie. A tie breaking question put it over the top, and boom! Honey Mustard Gas for the win! No one saw that coming! Pasadena Peeps got second!

Da Bears won third and the drinking round as we asked for folks to sing their favorite holiday or other song and the bearded guy from Da Bears wowed us with, not a holiday song, but a crazy and apropos drinking song all about getting drunk and doing crazy things and forgetting where you were and what you were doing. Obviously I neve heard it before, but it was funny as all heck, and even though Philosoraptors gave us a great rendition of Feliz Navidad, Quiztopher Walken's lovely songbird sang fabulously, and Pasadena Peeps made us laugh with a funny drinking song hilariously executed, I had to give it to Da Bears. So they got a free pitcher of beer and third place!

I Quiz in Your General Direction, Super Weenie Dog and Quiztopher Walken threatened all night to take the win, and Poop Poop Poopie, Booze Cats and It's Beagles All the Way Down were not far behind, it was a night of stiff competition and holiday trivia fun, fun, fun!
