As we near the end of March, only one championship bracket is on anyone’s mind: KING TRIVIA at Idle Hour!
24 teams arrived in our barrel-shaped bar to throw down with the greatest trivia show in town. It was standing room only as this QM and DJ Pandora took the stage to start the game.
As usual, we started with a tie that had nearly half the assembled teams fighting for the top spot. Cliques were made, alliances and betrayals abound, and only a rare few were ready to face the tribe at the elimination circle. Er…I mean one team miraculously took first place only two rounds in. My new dad is Pete might have secured an early lead…but could they hold it?
As it turns out…NO! Real Housewives of Noho snagged the lead the very next round. It became a back and forth that no one could break, and it only drove the teams beneath crazier.
Since we all needed a quick break before launching into the back half, we took time to honor National AG Day for our Drinking Round. The QM tricked out a combine harvester on John Deere’s website and challenged the teams to price it out. With the closest guess, Big Ronnie and the Chandliers took the free shots, much to the chagrin of the assembled teams.
Coming into the final stretch, we saw the crown trading hands once again. It was a real scrum between our top 10 teams.
As we jumped past Round 5, Ace Tomato Company took a sudden and strong lead away from our tied competitors. It was truly anyone’s game. When Round 6 ended, the scores were nearly locked together. What would happen next?
As it turns out, A NEW LEADING TIE! Real Housewives and My new dad took the top spot away from Ace Tomato, leading to a final showdown in Round 7. This was as tense as we’ve ever seen things in Idle Hour.
When the dust settled, we had a clear winner in the game: Real Housewives of Noho, My new dad is Pete, and Ace Tomato Company.
Join us next Tuesday for more King Trivia action!
