    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.

    At some point during every trivia quiz, this quizmaster likes to spend a few moments discussing the many beneficial effects of eating more dried grapes. Why? Because I'm all about raisin awareness.

    We had us a delightful night full of trivia fun and awareness raisin' this week at The Famous in Glendale. The always formidable fellows of Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink won the night with another strong performance.

    But the real action was for the #2 spot, and You're a Quizzard, Harry held off the very determined Team Vitamin D with an exciting tie-breaker win in overtime! Well done, all!

    "Your jokes are lame and you're not as funny as you think you are," said Mike Pence None the Richer team leader Matt while turning in an answer sheet. "Also, you dress weird and you have an odd aroma," he added.

    That's the aroma of victory, Matt! The aura of power and authority that comes with being a King Trivia Quizmaster! (See there, Matt!? I told you I'd mention you in the recap! And a quizmaster is always true to their word!)

    Speaking of quizmastering, have you ever wondered what it would be like to host a King Trivia show and tell really bad jokes? Of course you have! It's more fun than you can possibly imagine! But Don't dream it, be it! *** Use the "Become a Quizmaster" link below to start your journey into trivia quiz nirvana!

    See ya next week!
