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.

-10 points to the Recess Room for having holiday decorations up before Thanksgiving. But then, I guess that means -100 points to me for being such a Scrooge. The place really does look great!

Pineapple Express and Dragon with the Girl Tattoo were the new kids joining us, bringing in at least one bar trivia virgin, who will probably become a King Trivia addict, just like the rest of us (seriously, girl, it's worse than crack). They all did incredibly well, even giving our more experienced players a run for their money.

Area 51 threw a Hail Mary by doubling down on their Oscar-winning Pixar movies, but to no avail. Thirsty Pretzels had one of those dreaded evenings where you should've doubled down but didn't, then doubled down when you shouldn't. But isn't the real reward the honor of being in my company, guys? No? Shut up, Charlotte? Aww, okay.

The Implication was able to double down on their novel villains, pulling them from last place into third place -- glory to you guys! They just barely missed out on second place, which Knock on Wood earned for their Thanksgiving TV specials and '70s smarts. Highway Stars reigned supreme with their worst round earning 6 out of 9, as well as a free appetizer for not guessing Christian Bale in our Guess Who? round.

Have a great Thanksgiving, friends!
