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.

A battle of titans took place this week at The Famous on Brand in Glendale, when two very competitive teams - Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink and Trashley Wards - went head-to-head in a battle royal that wasn't resolved until the final points were counted!

BJWLUD edged out TW by a handful of points as the two teams left the rest of the field in the dust. Man! It was really somethin'! Well, done, kids!

On a separate note, over the course of time, a quizmaster will encounter a wide range of team names. Some clever; some provocative; some just laugh-out-loud funny.

With this in mind, I'm happy to give a little shout out to my favorite team name from this week at the Famous: Nervous Butt Puffs. I'm not gonna comment on it. I'm just puttin' it out there for your consideration and amusement.

See ya next week!
