Another amazing night at Idle Hour in the bag. If you decided to stay home this Tuesday, you made a wild mistake. The drinks were flying and appetizers were sizzling as 20 teams arrived to duke it out, trivia style. We had seven rounds to sort out our differences, and these folks came to play.
In the early rounds, It's Quizness Time set themselves apart with some careful double downs. They weren't alone. All Too Unwell and Team Turpentine saw the prize at the end of the tunnel and drove hard for victory. Yet there could only be one, and so the games continued.
During Round 4, some eager beavers saw their dreams shatter as they leapt at answers that, sadly, just didn't connect with the actual answer. Might Leave Early were tempted to live up to their name, but they managed to hold on a little longer (they had a baby at home and a babysitter ready to snatch some overtime).
Our drinking round was epic, paying homage to National Butter Day. Teams had to guess neither the weight nor height of the world's largest butter sculpture, but rather...the calorie count! All Too Unwell came the closest and won the free drinks!
As we sprinted toward the finish, the leaderboard become a game of musical chairs. By Round 7, almost ten teams were within spitting distance of one another! It all came down to Space Jam knowledge.
In the end, Marvin the Martian sent teams packing (he was the ref, not on the Tune Squad), and suddenly we had a real nailbiter. One team approached this QM, sadly leaving early, and wanted to know if they had even scored well. After examining their answers, we told them they might want to stick around.
At the buzzer, we saw Quizness Time snatch the top spot, with Gonzo's Hot Chicken Wife and Snark Squad rounding out the leader board.
If you're going anywhere else on Tuesday, you're missing the best trivia in the Valley. We'll see you at 8PM next time!
