About The Famous Bar

The Famous craft cocktail lounge is located in Glendale's historic Huntley-Evans building, directly across the street from the Americana at Brand. It follows an eclectic and rich pedigree of establishments that have called this building home in the last century, most notably the early Glendale landmark, The Famous Department Store. The Famous, true to its heritage, embraces the classic art of fine craft cocktail creation, invented in the United States in 1856, using bitters, juices, syrups, and infusions, prepared in-house using fresh ingredients from local markets and growers. Cocktails served at The Famous are identical to those served nearly 100 years ago when the building was constructed.

Well this is awkward. Last week, I lamented the incredible dominance of repeat winners Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink, who combine winning with harassment of the quizmaster. I implored you all to come on out and knock BJWLUD down a peg or two. IMPLORED you! BEGGED you!

So whaddaya s'pose happened? That's RIGHT! They won AGAIN, dagnabbit! And they rubbed salt in the wound by winning the drinking round, too!! Sheesh.

I hoped that 2nd place finishers Shapey Town might have what it takes to get the job done. And they nearly did but, alas, fell short in the end.

I secretly offered correct answers to Electric Mustache (3rd place; photo #3 above) and the lovely ladies of Yer A Quizzard Harry (photo #1 above), but they declined, citing "ethics" and "fairness." The Quizzard women even suggested that only someone like Voldemort would encourage such mendacity.

So in the end, I have no choice but to congratulate BJWLUD again, and offer my grudging admiration for these smug, self-satisfied winners!

P.S. The good people of Electric Mustache and Yer a Quizzard, Harry are right. It was wrong of me to offer assistance of any kind! I'm sooooo ashamed. So, if you're thinking of coming in next week to take a shot at the formidable Jeopardy crew, do NOT e-mail me at for help. DO NOT!! That would be wrong!

See ya next week!
