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.

The ladies (and one gent) of Yer a Quizard Harry worked their magic this week, with a wand-erful performance that landed them in first place! (See what I did there? "wand-erful"!? Oh, man! Sometimes I just crack myself up!)

Frequent first-place finishers Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink stumbled out of the gate with an unsuccessful double-or-nothing attempt, but still managed to finish in second! An impressive comeback, to be sure. Alex Trebeck would certainly approve.

Super Harvard and Bad News Barristers were in a dead heat with 61 points each at the end of regulation play, with Super Harvard taking third on the tie-breaker. Tough way to end things for the Barristers, after a fabulous performance all night. Better luck next time, friends.

Speaking of tough breaks, last week's #1 team - Nuns with Scissors - could do no better than 5th this week against tough competition. Such are the vagaries of Thursday night trivia at The Famous!

We'll be thinking of you all next Thursday, when we knock off for a week to enjoy Thanksgiving. Everyone at King Trivia is thankful for your continuing support and participation in our humble game, and we'll see you in two weeks to once again engage in trivia battle.

Happy Thanksgiving to us all.
