About The Recess Room

One fateful day three decades ago, five boys picked up a game of handball during school recess on a Fountain Valley playground. They grew up together, became life-long friends and pursued their own ambitions. But they shared a deep love for their hometown and dreamed of one day opening a restaurant together where they could share good food, good drinks and reminisce about good times. The Recess Room is their childhood dream come to life.

Everyone told their mothers, brothers, and lovers to come out to the Recess Room for King Trivia, and we had a full house tonight! Special shout out to the Home Team for offering his table to a team of four -- if it wasn't for some quick thinking, I would've made him sit on the floor! Haha!

The competition was fierce -- Newbies Spicy James did really well on their first go, doubling down on their Kings and taking home the 3rd place prize (by pure luck, as the ROUSs forgot to turn in their pen for an extra bonus point at the very end!). Thirsty Pretzels were chock full of confidence, with their lowest score all night being 6 out of 10 -- they took home the 2nd place prize and a free appetizer for being the first team to figure out Mick Jagger started Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys. But ultimately, it was the Highway Stars that doubled down on Round 5, clearly our most difficult round of the evening, taking home the 1st place prize and all the quiztastic glory.

Guys, not only was it awesome having so many teams here to up the ante, and having 7 out of 8 teams registering to compete for that $10k prize at the end of the year, but to have all of you be a shining example of good sportsmanship, and just having some gosh darn fun with it all! I love the good chi and phenomenal energy you all bring to the Recess Room. Much love to you all! <3
