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.

So here's an interesting turn of events from this week's trivia quiz at The Famous in Glendale: The first place prize was taken by the formidable crew of Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink. Why is that interesting? Well, just take a look at last week's scoreboard, which has BJWLUD all the way down in sixth place. So what changed, you might ask?

Well, last week, BJWLUD drink was comprised of team members Matt, Stephanie, Mike and Doug. But there is a fifth drunkateer by the name of Rory, who wasn't part of last week's effort.

So, what was different this week? Rory was there, and the team finished on top! Was Rory the difference maker? Does correlation equal causation? We wanted to ask Rory, but he was too busy basking in the adoration of his teammates to talk to us!

A special shout-out to Cat for celebrating her birthday with us, and welcome back to The Interns and Yer a Quizard, Harry. We missed you guys while you were off vacationing.

See ya next week!
