What a wonderful night for some trivia! QM Adam returned to the barrel-shaped bastion of good food and better questions as NoHo’s favorite showed reignited for the Fall season (now that a fair contract had been signed for the WGA).
With 26 teams and eager quizzers champing at the bit for some fun, the show began.
The first half of the game was dominated by Three Cool Boys as they settled into an early lead in Round 3, followed only a few points behind by Algorithm & Blues. As the half carried on, Double Stuff Oreos emerged as a contender for third, but the top spots seemed to be locked in. But Fate had yet to play its hand.
During our drinking round, we payed homage to a legendary character from the recent WGA strike: AMPTP’s Carol Lombardini. We asked our teams to decide her favorite order from the Cheesecake Factory (if you don’t get it, Google it). Our winner, with “eggsploitation benedict,” was 720 of Emotions!
In the latter half of the game, things took a sudden turn. Algorithm took a sudden lead, but it was a different leap that caught this QM’s attention. Team after team suddenly got up and headed for the exit…despite being in a leading position. No matter the cries of “you’re leaving money on the table,” trivia titans vacated the premises and left their earnings behind.
Our winners for the night were Algorithm & Blues, Three Cool Boys, and Sublime (though the 3rd place prize was awarded to Kingbeez)
