San Pedro CA 90731
- PUB QUIZ—Wednesdays @ 7:00pm
A stiff breeze buffets the palm trees standing sentry outside Brouwerij West. The sun hasn't quite begun to stain the sky pink and orange, but as it begins to sink low over Palos Verdes hill, it looks like it's trying to warn me. I laugh, carefree, and enter the brewery. A wave of force hits me like a photon cannon across the imaginary spaceship bridge I first wrote of months ago -- but this time...
TWENTY-ONE TEAMS 2: TWENTY-SIX TEAMS STRIKE BACK
A red alert flashes across the bridge once more. The entire ship rocks under the barrage of energy launched against it.
"Status report, ensign!"
"Captain, our craft can't take much more of this!"
"Craft! Good one, ensign."
"Captain, this is serious! It's happening again. They're back!"
"Back? You mean... the 21 teams?"
"Worse this time, captain. If these readings are accurate, we're looking at -- well --"
"Spit it out, ensign!"
"... 26 teams, captain."
"... My god."
AND WHAT A GAME IT WAS! A tidal wave of 10-point guesses in Round 4, a tightly competitive close scoreboard through the middle rounds, a hopscotch of successful and unsuccessful doubles throughout. In the end, it was Wannabe Vegans who emerged with first place at 75 points, followed by That's A Tasty Burger with 74 points, and Test Tickles with 73. A photo finish to a behemoth game. Well done, all teams!
It was all your little Quizmaster could do to keep up with the scoring process, hand moving like blaster fire. (Hopefully with better-than-Stormtrooper accuracy rate.)
